HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN
Welcome to our helpful step by step guide to help you with your 'build your own mattress' buying process.
We see so many families up cycling cribs & cots that have been treasured through generations, passed down from the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s ~ by offering our ‘build your own’ service for both premium mattresses & organic bedding, it brings us so much joy to be a part of these heirlooms, allowing a whole new generation to enjoy the same sleep space as their parent & grandparent, etc.
It is recommended by sleep safety experts to have a new mattress for each new baby. The naked eye cannot always see dangerous bacteria that could be looming within a used mattress. Additionally babies bodies grow rapidly so they need a firm, flat mattress to support them properly, a used mattress may have lost its firmness & therefore may now not be certified as safe for a baby to sleep on anymore.
Before we get started with the step by step actions to complete your order, we have listed a few helpful guides below which may assist you with decisions along the way.
