Why can’t you use a second hand mattress for a baby?
Some research suggests that there could be a link between Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS or ‘cot death’) and secondhand mattresses. An old mattress might contain mould, bacteria and dust mites, which could be linked to SIDS.
Why do you need a new mattress for baby?
Generally we would advise it is safest to have a new mattress for each baby, though we know this is not always possible. There is some evidence to suggest that bringing in a mattress from another home might increase the risk of sudden infant death very slightly.
Is it safe to use a second hand crib mattress?
a used crib mattress (even those used by close family members and friends) might not be as safe as you think. Firstly, a baby’s mattress must be firm. Without a firm edge, your little one could become trapped between the mattress and the crib rails. Which could also result in injury or even death.
