RESULTS HAVE BEEN AMAZING
At the age of 3 months my little boy had severe plagiocephaly. (A flattening to one side of his head) This is due to him always lying on the same side of his head. I wasn’t aware at the time the damage this could do to him. It is never discussed until it happens.
I independently looked into treatments. I didn’t want to put him through wearing a helmet for 23 hours a day. I felt like there was no solution. Then someone recommended a cranial osteopath that specialised in plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome). Philip Owen in Gatley changed our lives. He recommended the SleepCurve mattress. The most amazing invention that I can’t recommend enough for all babies. It prevents and helps to correct flat head syndrome.
DIFFERENCE IT HAS MADE IS UNBELIEVABLE
I have a little boy who has had reflux since he was just a week old. It has really affected his sleep and this, in turn, has really affected our sleep.
My son was three months old when I first put him down on the SleepCurve moses basket mattress. He slept for 45 minutes straight away and did not wake coughing as he had done every time previously on a ‘flat’ mattress. This in itself felt like a miracle but it was just the beginning and after a few days on the mattress he was sleeping for up to an hour at a time.
I have resolved to buy the next mattress up as soon as he is sleeping in his cot as the difference a decent nap (and night) makes is unbelievable, not just for the baby but for the whole family.
REALLY MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE
100% recommend the SleepCurve mattress for babies.
It completely altered how my little girl slept – sleeping for longer periods of time as she was is such a comfortable position. Also gave me piece of mind, knowing that I was helping to prevent flat head syndrome.
My little girl also visited Philip in the early days for treatment to help her settle and control her reflux; she became a far more comfortable and chilled out baby – really did make the first few weeks much less stressful for me and baby 👶🏻
BEST PURCHASE FOR OUR SON
This is without a doubt one of the best purchases for our son. He had a terribly flat head and this mattress helped so much, it also helped with his torticollis. If we had known about it from day one, we would have bought it.
Forget about the feet to the bottom of the bed business stick your little one in a sleeping bag and on this and you will be fine. My first though was omg what if he is sick??? Will he choke as his head is so tipped back. The answer is no – this mattress allows them to roll their heads left and right so they just sick up to the left or right with ease.
If you are worried about flat head syndrome then don’t hesitate to buy this mattress it is money well spent. I also bought the cot bed one so that went in his big boy bed for his day time naps (we live in a bungalow so use his cot and crib).
My baby was starting to get a noticeable flat spot, so after research I bought this for a crib and moved him out the moses basket. It has defiantly started improving, it’s been around a month. He has also dealt with a cold much better this time around, he seems able to breathe much better while bunged up. He also sleeps around 6 hours a time a night.
CAN’T RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH
Can’t recommend this product enough. My daughter doesn’t snuffle in her sleep as her airway is fully open therefore allowing us to get a better night’s sleep too. She had a dreadful cold at 4 weeks and couldn’t manage to sleep in her moses basket which has a normal flat mattress but at night she slept soundly in her crib with the SleepCurve mattress. She has never got on particularly well with the moses basket and standard mattress, but instantly slept in her crib from day one with the SleepCurve mattress.
Without wanting to tempt fate she has slept through the night from 6 weeks and she is now 3 months and without sounding over the top she has a beautiful round head! All of these things might have happened anyway, but I am pretty sure the mattress has a lot to do with it.
I used this company for my eldest child and now again for my little girl. It’s a brilliant product and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I ordered this around Christmas time and got the best customer service. Due to it being a bank holiday the lady rang and arranged a next day delivery at no extra cost so the mattress wouldn’t be stuck in a warehouse somewhere for ages. Great products and great customer service so no complaints!
I brought this mattress as my 10 week old had developed a flat spot on the back of her head. In just 3 weeks I could see a massive improvement. The only downside is the moses basket mattress is very long. I admit I didn’t measure it, bit have a standard size moses back and had to cut the end of the mattress to get it to fit. Albeit I’m very pleased I brought it 🙂
WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
I bought the Moses mattress as my baby had a favoured side to sleep on….no matter how hard me and my partner tried turning her head she would end up back on the favoured side. It soon became very apparent that she had flat head on one side along with slight ear misalignment and slight bulge to one side of forehead.
We bought this when she was 12 weeks old. She is now turning 30 weeks and what a difference. She now has a nice round head and ear misalignment has improved significantly. We only wish we bought this sooner. We were considering going down the helmet route, but this has improved her head so much we no longer feel we have to. I would have rated 5 starts but due to position of the curve on the mattress I feel like my baby outgrew it a bit more quickly than she could have. Well worth the money and would definitely buy again if I have another baby and I would use it from the very start.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT
My daughter has a slightly flat head and although I’ve not used this product for long enough to see if it’s improving I am impressed with the positioning of her airway. Before the mattress she used to snore slightly and you could really hear her breathing but now she is in the position with the mattress she seems to breath so much more freely and comfortably. I hardly hear her now! She also has acid reflux and it’s nice knowing this helps with that too.
The only niggle I have is in I assumed all moses baskets are universal fit. It’s my own fault for not researching properly, however it’s something to look at before you assume it will fit yours.
A COMPLETE CHANGE
In conjunction with a couple of treatments from Philip Owen both the mattress and the activity mat have made a tremendous difference. Our 4 week old now sleeps more soundly, his breathing is clear and posture greatly improved. I really feel that addressing this early in life will pay dividends further down the line. The idea of now using a traditional mattress without any support seems unthinkable and potentially detrimental to his health and development.
This mattress is extremely impressive. Just by looking at your baby sleeping you know it is well supported and is breathing comfortably. It is a perfect size for a Moses basket and the mattress and sheets are very easily maintained. This is the second mattress I have purchased for my second grandchild (a different household!) and I would have no hesitation in purchasing another if my third daughter had a baby. I would recommend that you buy one for the baby coming home from hospital.
