When you buy a Moses basket, without exception, the Moses basket mattress will be of the absolute minimum quality.

The reason is because Moses baskets are sold by design and of course price. To supply a decent mattress in a Moses basket could would increase the price buy at least some 30%.
.
So what you get in your Moses basket is a thin piece of foam either covered by a waterproof sealed cover which is not breathable or a compressed woven cover but with no waterproof protection.

Considering the main function of the Moses basket is to offer your baby a supportive comfortable safe sleep it is surprising that Moses baskets are sold with a mattress made to the lowest possible specification to pass a British Standard.

Ideally your Moses basket mattress should offer comfort, support, waterproof protection and be easy to keep clean and breathable. This standard can be achieved with both a foam or natural mattress.

New baby - New mattress

This term came about in the late 80's when there was theory that if the fire retardant chemicals used in the production of foam, came into contact with body fluids and combined with the warmth and moisture from a baby caused a toxic gas.This Stibine gas was said to affect the baby’s breathing and heart functions and perhaps a cause of cot death. A lot of research went into this theory there are hundres of pages written about it, it was never proved, nor really disproved.

There was a concern that a used mattress which was unable to be washed and the foam unprotected from baby fluids would be left unwrapped where bacteria or mold could grow.  Then the mattress would used again, also that the mattress was of such poor quality it did not offer any support having been used once.

Move on 30 years and we now take a different look at the world. We are now becoming more aware of what we are doing to our planet with waste, recycling and landfill. and maybe question  " New baby - New mattress"

Different components take different times to biodegrade, some foam can take one million years. scary eh?

Consider buying a Moses basket mattress that is of a better quality where core is protected and the covers are washable and breathable.

A good quality mattress with the benefits of waterproof protection and machine washable covers will not dip nor dent and can be used again, but only if it is looked after and hygiene standards maintained.

Natural Moses basket mattresses with the core made of coir and lambswool will obviously biodegrade a thousand times faster than foam.

Natural Moses basket mattresses have virtually no petro-chemical components, If they are designed so hygiene standards can be maintained, i.e. no body fluids getting to the mattress core, machine washable covers, made to a good standard, they should last for several babies too.
