Why a SleepCurve Mattress?
Why a SleepCurve Baby Mattress?
SleepCurve mattresses are clinically designed by a world leading cranial osteopath, Philip Owen D.O., B.Sc. (Hons), who specialises in baby head shape.
The mattress incorporates a unique curve which will support your baby’s head in a more natural way, to aid comfort and has been proven to reduce the risk of and treat Flat Head Syndrome.
The mattresses also help to reduce colic, acid reflux and maintain your baby’s body temperature.
SleepCurve Features & Benefits
Below is a summary of the key features and benefits of the SleepCurve Mattreess. You can find out further information on Flat Head syndrome and also the additional wellbeing and development benefits of the sleepCurve Mattress, by clicking on the buttons.
Keep baby cooler and more comfortable
Controlling your baby’s body temperature is very important and care should be taken to avoid overheating. Ordinary cot or crib mattresses can trap the heat against your baby’s body and head leading to discomfort. SleepCurve mattresses feature specially designed and integrated channels so excess heat can escape, leaving your baby comfortable and happy, promoting a good night’s sleep for both baby and you.
Aid breathing and promote better posture
When a baby is lying on their back on a flat surface, the head is tilted down with the chin touching the top of the chest. This is not natural because it constricts the airways and a baby breathing like this is more likely not to sleep through the night.
A SleepCurve baby mattress however allows the head to rest in a natural neutral position with the airways completely clear. Babies breathing this way will be more comfortable and more likely to sleep through. Parents with SleepCurve Mattresses tell us that their babies both sleep more peacefully at night and also when babies catch a normal respiratory infection, they are less affected because the airway is in the natural, open position.
Clinically Proven to TREAT and PREVENT Flat Head Syndrome
In a clinical study by Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, 29 out of 30 babies with Flat Head Syndrome showed significant* improvement in head shape (cranial vault asymmetry) after using a SleepCurve mattress.
The report also concluded that the SleepCurve mattress produced similar results as a baby using an expensive corrective helmet for treating Flat Head Syndrome.
The authors also commented on how much more cost effective the mattress was (as well as being less obtrusive and more comfortable for baby).
*Average head asymmetry fell from 16mm to 5mm over the 6 months period.Find Out More SleepCurve Mattress Clinical study
Reduce Reflux for a better nights sleep
Acid reflux or posseting is unpleasant for your baby and is the cause of many a disturbed night of sleep.
A SleepCurve mattress has a gentle slope down towards the feet designed to help your baby, whilst still being totally comfortable and allowing your baby to sleep in a natural, comfortable position.
Allow baby’s head to move freely
All babies’ heads have a pronounced bulge at the back. In the early weeks of a baby’s life the shape and weight of the head is too much for the undeveloped neck muscles to control movement. As a result, babies lying on a flat mattress will end up with their head turned to one side or another.
The unique hollow of a Sleepcurve mattress allows your baby’s head to turn and move more freely, which has benefits for the spine and the muscles around the spine, as well as the neck muscles.
