There is a lot of dialogue regarding baby deaths due to poorly fitting mattresses including cot mattresses, and or these being too soft but it seems to me there is little focus on the mattress material and possible causes to unwellness in the baby. For example back in my baby days I had two very thin foam mattresses for my babies bassinet as the mattresses would become very wet due to perspiration and if not dried out each day they became mouldy even though there were “breathing holes” in the bottom of the bassinet. This probably occurs to many mattresses without the parent realising so why is this not addressed during research.
Further why are mattresses for human use considered to be okay health wise when they contain so much foam (and I dont know what other materials covered in what chemicals) which emits chemical vapour that can cause health issues? How long should I wait until my mattress is “less” chemically vapourous (sorry I cant think of the right word/s to use)? Will my mattress along with those baby and child mattresses ever be chemically safe?
My last question is why are mattresses hot…this could be an age issue lol
