I'm sure I have put this out there before but I have always has a soft spot for companies that work hard to help create products to reduce the risk of SIDS. My sons Godmother lost her own sweet little boy at 3 mths due to SIDS and since then I have been proud to support any company that works to reduce the risk for your child and mine.
Secure Beginnings, LLC is the designer of a revolutionary baby mattress that replaces conventional crib mattresses. The mission of Secure Beginnings, llc is to deliver to consumers a safer, more sanitary, substitute to traditional crib mattresses that provides a better night’s sleep for babies. Kelly the product designers, life was also touched by SIDS, when his friend lost a child to sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and through his sadness came concern for his own children and the millions of other infants in the world. Kelly then directed his attention to developing a “safer” infant sleep surface that would address the many issues related to SIDS deaths. Which is how Secure Beginnings Crib Mattresses came to be.
You may wonder what makes these mattresses so unique, or safe compare to a traditional Crib mattress. Kelly put in a lot of research on possible causes and risk factors of SIDS, to develop the safest sleep surface. He wanted a sleep surface that would reduce the potential to breathe harmful levels of carbon dioxide, and Incorporated a “passive airflow” design. Kelly found in his research that many children who lost their lives from SIDS also had elevated body temperatures, so maintaining a stable temperature was critical.
Kelly then met Julie whose life was also tragically touched by SIDS, by the lose of her niece. With Kelly and Julie partnered together it wasn't long before the Secure Beginnings revolutionary sleep products were ready for market.
Not only does Secure Beginning sleep surface offer a possible deterrent to SIDS, it addresses a multitude of other concerns with traditional and organic crib mattresses including bacteria build-up, chemicals used in both conventional and organic mattresses to conform to fire regulations, and sanitary issues. While being possibly the safest mattress available for your baby, Secure Beginnings also brings with it extraordinary quality and designs.
Check out this video to help you get to know more about Secure beginnings Heaven Sent Crib Mattress:
You really have to be amazed and impressed by all that the Heaven Sent Crib mattress has to offer. I felt more then honored to try out this mattress for myself. First you can choose from a variety of designs suitable for any nursery. The base is available in beautiful woods of many finishes and sleep surface in a variety of colors. I was sent the Contemporary Curves Breathable Crib Mattress Base with Light blue breathable mattress surface. Both these products are available in different styles, colors and finishes.
The Heaven Sent crib mattress does not contain any harmful chemicals.
A high quality crib mattress fits properly and functions reliably keeping your baby safe from harm. The mattress should fit snugly inside the crib without any obvious gap between the crib frame and crib mattress. When fit properly, no more than one finger can be inserted between the crib mattress and crib frame.
A conventional crib mattress should be firm enough to prevent suffocation pockets often found in softer foam-filled mattresses. The Heaven Sent crib mattress is fully breathable eliminating soft spots that may cause suffocation.
Studies have shown a link between SIDS cases and the use of second-hand crib mattresses. While you may be tempted to use a hand-me-down crib mattress, purchasing a new crib mattress may be safer for your baby.
If allergies or asthma are a concern in your family, consider a crib mattress that is non-allergenic meaning it will not harbor dust mites. Cotton filled crib mattresses attract dust mites. The Heaven Sent Crib Mattress is the only crib mattress with a removable sleep surface that can be machine-washed at 60 degrees C to kill dust mites that cause allergies.
The fact that the mattress is washable is truly a plus for me. As a parent of multiple children I can tell you besides dust mite, allergens and all that other stuff we hate to think about..I can't help but think about how many times my children spit up, urinated on, or worse had a blow out in their crib.. which goes right through the thin sheet and into the mattress. All you can do as a mother is wipe it down, and what is really safe enough to wipe it down with that will also kill germs?
The Heaven Sent Crib Mattress is easy to install with simple instruction. The Heaven Sent Crib Mattress loads into a standard size crib the same way you load a conventional mattress; it simply drops in.
Instead of placing a sheet or mattress protector around a cumbersome traditional mattress, the Heaven Sent Crib Mattresses’ sleep surface is easily placed onto the spring-loaded “U” shaped bars. With the breathable sleep surface folded in half, you want to press the 2 white center tabs together so the hook and loop on the tabs are “locked” together, making sure the tab with the Secure Beginnings Logo is closest to you. Then zip the underside mesh pieces together, press the bars down, one at a time, to lock in place and tuck the 2 white tabs down under the approved safety bumper away from baby.
Full instructions for installation and removable come with the set but you can also always refer to the Secure Beginnings website as well.
I wish there was a way for me to truly express how much I love not only the function and safety aspect of this set, but I also appreciate the time that was put into designing a safe and stylish mattress. Besides being the safest choice for your baby physically, I guarantee you will find no traditional mattress that comes close to the beauty and style the Heaven Sent Crib mattress also possess.
