Every parent aims to give their baby the best they can and most nesting begins with just that... building your baby's very own nest or nursery. Most moms-to-be feel terribly anxious until they are satisfied with where and how their baby is going to sleep. One of the biggest decisions that parents-to-be face is whether to co-sleep with their baby or put their baby in its own cot.
More and more research shows that the best place for baby during the neonatal period (the first month of life) is with its parents- that is skin to skin to promote feeding, bonding and deeper sleep for both mom and baby. However, there will be many times in that first month (and beyond!) where a cot will be a practical solution during self-care activities (bathing, dressing etc..), whilst minding other children or pets that may be around or if co-sleeping makes sleeping impossible. If practical (and you can tolerate new baby noises) then it may be beneficial to place your new cot in your room so that baby is close enough to be regularly fed and to intervene in the case of a dirty nappy or sudden vomit.
The style of cot is dependent on your personal taste but a good quality mattress is a must. Sealy has just launched two new exciting products to enhance your nest. The first is the Sealy Cot Mattress made of natural fibres that are waterproof, but breathable. The mattress fibres have a polyurethane layer that allows air to pass through but prevents liquids from following along. This ensures that the mattress retains its anti-bacterial properties despite the spills and thrills that come along with baby-rearing. At the same time your baby is ensured comfort and ventilation. Furthermore, Sealy's individually wrapped pocket springs give postural support to your babies developing body. To clean simply wipe down the mattress with a damp cloth.
The second product is the Soft Touch Bamboo Cot Mattress Protector. Bamboo is a soft, natural fibre that absorbs six times more moisture than cotton. The mattress protector serves to make your mattress last longer but also to keep your baby as comfortable as possible.
A good night's rest is one step closer with a safe sleeping environment that is clean, dry and warm.
