Baby's sleep safety
Have you ever thought about how many hours your baby spends on his or her mattress? Or how many hours we actually spend at home with our babies?

As parents we usually invest a lot in baby prams and car safety seats. These things are necessary when traveling or moving around with a baby, but have you ever thought about how much you use these items? Or how how much you invest in them per used hour? So we played a little with numbers to find out the real costs of different baby items. Here are the results:
Item Use time Average usage Average price Cost per
in months per week (hours) (eur) hour (eur)
Pram 24 5 750 1,4
Car safety seat 12 5 200 0,8
Baby mattress 24 98 100 0,01
The table above shows that families actually invest quite a lot in strollers. While it depends a lot on how much the stroller costs and is used, no matter how you calculate it we invest a lot more in strollers than we do in baby mattresses.
Some people may feel that EUR 545 euros is a lot to pay for a mattress, but if you consider that your baby uses the mattress for one year for an average of 14 hours per day, the price for one used hour is just 10 cents. You can also use the mattress again for the next baby!
Why should you invest in a good baby mattress?
A newborn baby sleeps a lot; up to 22 hours per day. This is a lot of time to spend in one place. To improve baby's safety the easiest and most efficient thing to do is to make sleeping as safe as possible.
With LullaMe mattress the baby sleeps on a soft-feel mesh fabric, and even if he or she rolls onto the stomach while sleeping, there is still breathing air flowing under the baby due to the porous nature of the mattress.
Researchers have been investigating the reasons of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) a lot. As a safety measure, they have given some recommendations for baby sleep:
1) baby should sleep in his/her own bed
2) baby should sleep in the same room with parent(s)
3) baby should sleep on his/her back
When you need your baby baby to fall asleep in his or her own cot, the LullaMe mattress helps. The mattress creates an automated movement so your baby feels safe - the movement is similar to the movement babies experience in the womb. The baby will calm down easier. With LullaMe mattress it is possible to keep the baby sleeping in the safest place possible, his or her own bed.
