A Guide to Moses Basket Mattresses

As a new parent, we know just how quickly your life can become chaotic. The last thing on your mind between late night feedings and changing nappies might be your baby’s mattress, but this is key to your baby’s development. As newborns can spend as much as 18 hours of each day sleeping, that mattress is going to see a lot of use, and a lot of mess!

However, we know trying to navigate your way through the world of baby products can be intimidating and daunting, especially when you’re confronted with terms you may never have come across before. So, we’re here to break down the ins and outs of our mattresses range, to help ease your mind and make clear exactly what you need for your little one.

A good mattress must be comfortable, easy to maintain, but above all, safe! So let’s look at each of the three Clair de Lune mattresses, made in Great Britain, to get some ideas of the best choice for you and your newborn when purchasing a Moses basket or Bedside crib.

Fibre Mattresses

Fibre Moses Basket Mattress

  • Hypo-allergenic fibres
  • A durable, breathable mattress to regulate temperature
  • Water-resistant cover that is removable & washable
  • Sustainable choice, made from recycled polyester

Our Fibre Mattresses are a great affordable starting point for any parent. They're firm and supportive, allowing your baby to rest comfortably the minute you lay their head down. A huge amount of a baby’s physical growth and development takes place while they are asleep, so it is important that they're supported safely and correctly.

But it’s not just your baby that the Fibre Mattress supports! Like all of our range of mattresses at Clair De Lune, we’ve designed an easily removable water resistant cover that can be washed easily, helping you take care of the spills and mess that newborns seem to bring with them everywhere! Small spills can be simply wiped away from the cover, saving you both money and time. 

The inner padding is central to how your baby’s mattress functions. Our Fibre Mattresses have a pad that is crafted from high-density polyester fibres, which provide superb comfort, but also helps to dissipate heat as your child sleeps, meaning they can stay comfortable through the night no matter the weather. Making sure your child’s temperature is constant and regulated is a key way to ensure a peaceful and restful sleep.

We are also aware of our planet, and the need to create sustainable products that can ensure your child is growing up toward a brighter future. Our Fibre Mattresses are crafted to be sustainable, as at least 2/3 of the fibres used to create them are from a recycled source. Add to that the fact that our polyester fibres are hypo-allergenic, greatly reducing the chance of your baby suffering an allergic reaction, and you have a win for the planet, you and your child!

  •  Improves on the cover by including an extra layer of soft-touch quilted & water-resistant covering.
  • The cover remains removable & washable, and can be reversed.
  • The quilted covering is Oeko-Tex 100 certified as well as being hypo-allergenic, meaning you are assured of excellent quality as well as comfort.
  • The durable, breathable mattress remains that helps to regulate temperature.
  • Also a sustainable choice, made from recycled polyester

Let’s get into the details of the Microfibre mattress. These have a number of interesting features that set them apart from the more basic Fibre range.

These features are mainly found in the microfibre quilting, which features a soft-touch quilted cover that has been designed and crafted to be even more comforting than the Fibre range. The cover is also fully breathable and air permeable, meaning it provides a night’s sleep that minimises discomfort and disturbances.  

It’s also worth noting that this range of mattresses are Oeko-Tex certified, whose mission is dedicated to assuring consumers about textile products. Looking at suitability, safety and quality, meaning you can rest easier knowing you child is sleeping safe.

This microfibre mattress is a suitable upgrade on the Fibre mattresses, taking all of the key features seen in that range and improving on them. Enhancing on comfort and softness through the soft quilted cover, this range also maintains the resilience of the Fibre mattresses, meaning it’s a great choice for both parent and child.
