Mattresses & Bedding

ne of the problems with selling mattresses is that a cheap one can look very much like an expensive one – a white slab of – well – anything really! I am shocked at what little information there is around.

It’s usually the bare minimum of description with no attempt to explain why a baby needs a good quality surface on which to spend most of their time. Personally I found it all a bit confusing trying to work out which is the best one to buy. “The correct choice of mattress will provide a better night’s sleep for your child and peace of mind for you” isn’t exactly informative. “Ideal as a basic mattress” means what exactly? And most of the online reviews are positive!

The importance of getting the right size mattress for the cot is rarely clearly stated which is appalling when you realise the child’s life could depend on not having a gap between mattress and cot side.

We seem to have slipped back to the days when a mattress was simply an extra cost when buying a cot and therefore the cheaper the better. Not only is this not the best option for baby, it isn’t the best for retailers either!

And when it comes to sleeping there are other little add-ons which a canny retailer can sell – note the word ‘sell’. Consumers rarely hunt for things such as sleep positioners and breathable bumpers – they don’t know they exist.

Look out for these extra profits!


NaturalStart by Harrison Spinks, a range of cot mattresses crafted by the award winning British family bed makers.

Harrison Spinks have used their 175 years in the luxury bed manufacturing industry to create a range of cot mattresses designed to deliver the best start in life for baby.

By combining their world leading spring technology with 100% natural fillings, some of which come from their own 300 acre farm in Yorkshire, NaturalStart mattresses adapt to the sleeping position of a baby to ensure perfect postural support meaning a less disturbed sleep.

NaturalStart mattresses use BabySprings ®; the world’s smallest pocket springs. Producing these in a patented sheet format; means they are flexible and supportive on the head and neck and being motion activated, they also adapt to baby’s sleeping position.

Layered within the high spring count is 100% natural fillings: Herdwick wool, cotton, mohair, hemp and extra supportive coir fibre. Super soft Herdwick wool is springy, naturally anti-bacterial and inherently fire retardant. Cotton wicks away moisture and lavish mohair has excellent temperature control properties keeping baby warm in winter and cool in summer. These combined with home-grown hemp from Harrison Spinks’ own farm, which is naturally resilient to mildew, means the mattress stays fresh and hygienic for baby, providing a natural but luxurious night’s sleep.

Sleep is essential for baby’s brain development and physical growth and a NaturalStart mattress is designed with baby’s wellbeing in mind.
