It is essential to use the specified bedding for a BabeSafe® wrapped mattress, because bedding can also contain the elements phosphorus, arsenic and/or antimony. By following the Bedding Instructions you can virtually eliminate the possibility of gas generation from those elements in bedding. Only 100% pure cotton single layer bedding (i.e. sheets, flat blankets, and towels) can be used on top of a BabeSafe® mattress cover and over the baby.
More Essential Information:
To wrap your baby's mattress with a BabeSafe® crib mattress cover or bassinet mattress cover is a key component in protecting him or her from SIDS. Every parent has the right to know this information and decide for themselves what to do for the safety of their baby.
In addition to using the BabeSafe® mattress cover on your baby mattresses, you must use the strictly specified bedding for a BabeSafe®-wrapped mattress. For instructions on the bedding to use with a BabeSafe® cover, see our Bedding Instructions page. Thank you!
The mattress slides into the BabeSafe® mattress cover, and after the cover is sealed your baby is protected from exposure to any gases generated in the mattress.
The BabeSafe® cover is made of inert plastic, and therefore the cover itself cannot generate any gases. It is a plastic mattress cover designed specifically to prevent SIDS.
The BabeSafe® mattress cover is a polyethylene plastic bag 125 microns (4.92 mils) thick and poses no risk of suffocation to babies. This cover is designed thick enough to be impermeable to gases and is different than the other's thicker cover of 6 mils thickness.
The BabeSafe® mattress cover contains no detectable phosphorus, arsenic or antimony. It does not contain phthalates or BPA.
The BabeSafe® matress cover has ventilation holes on the underside, which allow fresh air to pass in to the mattress, thereby preventing mold growth on the wrapped mattress. Once the mattress is wrapped, the ventilation holes must be placed downwards in the crib, facing the floor.
Please wrap your baby's mattress with a BabeSafe® mattress cover to prevent SIDS. You may find it on the web called a BabySafe Mattress Cover. BabeSafe® is the original name and product.
