- Rotate your mattress regularly (once per week), especially where your child sleeps in the same position.
- At least once per month, we recommend that your mattress is aerated in the sun, on a warm sunny day.
- Lay the mattress on a flat clean surface and rotate through the day. This helps to ensure your mattress stays aerated and firm.
- Humid weather and perspiration will cause your mattress to compress more easily.
- To alleviate this you can wash your mattress with cold water and dry it completely in the sun or use a hairdryer to aerate your mattress (warm air).

Complies to Australian Standard – Sleep Surface Test For Firmness- so you know it is safe.Peace Of Mind
There is no foam in our breathe eze fibre mattresses because we believe it is toxic for your baby as it omits fumes which may impact your baby’s respiratory system.Easy to Wash
Easy zip-off cover, so you can remove and wash it in a delicate bag in your washing machine.Better On The Inside
Our breathe eze mattresses are dust mite, allergy resistant and anti-microbial so perfect for developing little lungs and delicate skinWhat is Breathe Eze Padding and Wadding?
Why do we not use Coir or Coconut Husks in our mattress?
- All babyhood padding and wadding is made using heat bonded polyester fibre. Polyester fibre is a great form of padding and provides a firm and elastic sleeping surface for your baby.
- Did you know that over 12% of the population suffer from asthma and 40% from allergies, the babyhood Breathe EzeTM Mattress Range is a breath of fresh air for your newborn baby.
- Our breathe eze fibre is made from polyester which is a non-toxic, non-harmful and low VOC product. Polyester fibres are strong and the size of our fibres are large, so they are non respirable and therefore prevent airborne fibre occurrence. This limits any chance of becoming a potential airborne pollutant and is therefore much better for your baby.
- The breathe eze fibre is not only breathable for your baby but dust mite and allergy-resistant and anti-microbial also, which is so essential for your precious baby’s growing body.
- There is no foam in our breathe eze fibre mattresses. We do not use foam in our breathe eze mattresses because we believe it is toxic for your baby as it omits fumes which may impact on your baby’s respiratory system. We also do not use foam as it is highly combustible and often requires the addition of formaldehyde and fire retardants. There are no fire retardants or formaldehyde in our mattresses as our breathe eze fibre is inherently flame retardant and does not flare up like other textiles.
- The current trend in mattresses, is to fill them with Coir or Coconut Husks. Whilst this sounds nice and natural, we believe there are too many problems associated with these mattress fillings which makes them unsafe for your precious baby:
Why heat bonding?
- Hygiene Issues. Coir mattresses tend to retain moisture, dust and allergens that can reduce the hygiene of the mattress and attract dust mites and insects. When these pests breed in a mattress not only is it dirty but it can lead to off-gassing. The coir also can attract body odour and sweat and as we know our little bubs do sweat a lot, especially in their heads. If you live in a humid climate, which is most of Australia, these issues are exacerbated as fungus and algae infest in the coconut husk mattresses, more readily.
- Not Supportive. Coir is not uniform and when packed in a mattress can leave unevenness through the mattress, which is not safe for your delicate baby’s growing body.
- Not Durable. Coir mattresses compress easily and lose their shape. Unlike fibre they cannot be reshaped, with washing and so they become uneven and are not supportive for your baby’s growing body.
- Cheap Waste By-Product. Coir is often used by manufacturers because it is waste of the coconut fibre, which is abundant and cheap but necessarily best for your baby.
- We use thermally bonded fibre as this process utilizes less chemicals and reduces your baby’s exposure to harsh chemicals used in other chemical and petroleum methods of bonding. So there are no binders, adhesives or blowing agents that may have significant health impacts over time.
