Crib and toddler mattresses / co-sleeping questions
Can I make a crib mattress? I plan on co-sleeping with my baby, is a hull filled mattress ok for infants to sleep on?
The reason why we do not recommend our Twist mattresses for cribs or co-sleeping is the area between the pods create a dip where a baby, without developed neck muscles, could not lift his or her face from. Buckwheat hull pillows have been labeled as soft bedding thus a SIDS risk. From a legal perspective, and as parents ourselves, we just feel safer saying it is not suitable for infants to sleep on buckwheat hulls.
Can I make a standard Twin mattress?
You can shorten the Long Twin Twist mattress by leaving off a row. Keep in mind you will need to maintain / fluff your small one's mattress as you would your own. Something for tired parents to consider! Also, buckwheat hulls should be protected from getting wet. Surface wetness is not a problem but if the hulls should get soaked you would need to replace them.
