PRODUCT INFORMATION - How to use and care for your SleepCurve mattress and sheets
Here are the answers to some regularly asked questions.
Can I buy a SleepCurve mattress from a retailer?
No, sorry! You can only buy new SleepCurve products directly from this website - www.SleepCurve.com
We did sell our mattresses via Mothercare, John Lewis, Kiddicare etc but they wanted too high a margin which made the products too expensive in relation to a standard flat mattress (some were also more interested in promoting their own brand so our mattresses were pretty hidden!). With over 40% of babies having some form of plagiocephaly, our objective is for everyone who wants a SleepCurve mattress to be able to get the information they need and to buy a mattress at a reasonable cost.
Is there any independent clinical proof of the effectiveness of the mattresses?
There has been a clinical study of the mattresses by Alder Hey Children's Hospital. They found that 29 of the 30 babies in the study had a significant improvement in head shape over the 6 month study period. The average was a 11mm improvement. The report concluded that SleepCurve mattresses were an 'effective treatment' with results similar to a baby helmet but at a fraction of the cost.
If my baby rolls over and doesn't stay with its head in the curve should I stop using a SleepCurve mattress?
There is no evidence of any detrimental effect of using a SleepCurve mattress once your baby can roll over independently. However, if you baby moves a lot or is rolling over regularly then we recommend that you review the use of the mattress. If your baby's head is not in the curve in the correct position the positive benefits of using the mattress are lost.
