There are many different types of mattress out on the market these days vying for you attention and money. Each type has its own advantage and the more advanced the technology that has been used to make the mattress, the more expensive it is. This article is designed to help you navigate your way through the selection process and make an informed decision on which mattress best suits you and your budget.
Some of the many types include:
Eco Flo mattresses, these are made to combine the comfort and protection of your baby and as it is made from sustainable materials protect the next generations environment. An eco mattress can provide up to 23% reduction on energy demands. Natural seed oils that are used in the manufacture of these mattresses are classed as a renewable source.

The eco flow system uses two five-layer eco fabrics with a high-grade polyester infill. This combination allows the maximum ability to dissipate heat, and disperse moisture during the night. These advanced mattresses are generally fully sprung. I shall cover sprung mattresses next.
Sprung are the most common mid-priced mattresses on the market. As they are sprung they give long lasting support for your baby. The advantage over the foam counterparts is that you do not get that tell -tale indentation where your baby likes to rest. With the sprung mattress for that reason have a longer life and are suitable for the larger cot beds that you baby will sleep in right up to the time they are ready for a junior bed.
Foam mattresses are the budget mattress, ideal for travel cots and beds that are not likely to be used too much. The intended light usage of these mattresses is means that the bumps and ripples that appear in the foam after a child has been sleeping in it are minimised.
Quilted is the type of cover provided with the mattress. Generally if it has a quilted cover the quality is better of the product. This means there is more protection for the mattress. A quilted cover is made SssSSup of small pockets within the material that allows the quick dispersion of heat, which in turn prevents your baby from overheating.
