What Baby Mattress Should I Buy?

First question you may ask yourself when it comes to your baby's nursery room is what baby mattress should I buy? Or at least it should be because it is one of the most important purchase considerations for your newborn baby since they will spend more than half their day in contact with it.

First off, AVOID CHEAP BABY MATTRESSES! They just ain't worth saving on and they are certainly not good enough for your baby.  

So why should you buy a more expensive baby mattress? or why would you upgrade to a more expensive baby mattress over the free one that may come with your new cot?

Well if it is a more expensive baby mattress you should certainly check out what are the extra benefits you are paying more for. But on the behalf of Pure Zees let me make this simple. The reason you would pay more for the Pure Zees baby mattress is that it’s better for your baby’s health.

No exposure to potentially dangerous Fire-Retardant chemicals and it considerably reduces exposure to allergens and irritants such as dust mites, pollen and pet dander which are ever increasing causes of children developing asthma & allergies. It is also 100% waterproof and breathable with no extra purchase of a mattress topper required. 

Fire Retardancy:
By EU law all baby mattresses must be Flame-Retardant. In 2018 the European Chemicals Agency identified a higher cancer risk for children from exposure to the flame retardants used in baby mattresses because of the long duration of contact. Babies will spend approximately 14 hours a day on their mattress. Thanks to new breakthrough fabrics & materials, we have built a baby mattress that does not require any of these obnoxious chemicals. It is inherently flame-retardant and a major step forward in baby mattress manufacturing.

Asthma & Allergies:
There is a 1 in 5 Chance Your Child Will Suffer From Asthma & Allergies. Dust mites, pollen and pet dander are main contributors to these diseases. Pure Zees, designed, patented and Made in IRELAND, deals with these problems in an effective non-chemical way that unlike others is tested & proven. Our cot mattresses are the world's first ever to be certified asthma & allergy friendly® by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America and Allergy Standards Ireland.

Waterproof & Breathable:
A major advantage with the Pure Zees baby mattress is that it's waterproof while still being breathable for your baby’s skin. We manage this by using a very hi-tech microporous cover that prevents the liquids and mess going into the mattress while keeping baby from becoming sweaty and uncomfortable which is a big problem with many so called breathable waterproof protectors & covers.
