Recently our middle child, Noah, made the transition from crib to cot. A big move for our little man. Naturally we were worried at how quickly he would adapt to the change and how smooth the transition would be for him.
With Noah moving into a cot and out of his crib, all of the usual transition worries parents have sprang to mind. How would he sleep? Would he not take to a cot at all? What about safety, comfort, and support whilst sleeping? Add to this the obvious 'should he have the inevitable nappy leak, would we be able to wash his mattress' scenario and I suddenly felt the transition would be harder on us than it would be on him!
Fortunately the timing of changing Noah into his cot coincided with being sent a new cot mattress from Kit For Kids to review. The mattress is part of the new Kit for Kids Ventidry range.
When we opened it we were very impressed with the overall feel of it. The materials used felt like they were very high quality and the workmanship of the stitching is excellent.
The Ventidry system of mattresses boast the following key features:
*Hypoallergenic and anti-dust mite properties
*Reversible-This prolongs the life of the mattress
*Breathable and supportive
*The entire mattress is machine washable at 60°C
*Fast drying for convenience
*The Ventidry range of mattresses also includes mattresses
for travel cots and Moses Baskets.
The mattress we tried out measures 87.5 x 39 x 2 cms- The perfect size for Noah's new cot bed.
Being machine washable at 60°C means the interior of the mattress will be cleaned thoroughly and remain fresh. The 3D structure of the inner core allows air to circulate which in turn helps prevent overheating and makes for enhanced breathability.
So, has the transition gone well? The answer is a resounding yes. He's had very few disturbed nights (great news for us and him) and really has taken to new cot and mattress well and we feel much more relaxed that he's sleeping comfortably, on a breathable and hypoallergenic mattress which can be easily cleaned...perfect!
