When mothers give birth to their newborn in Finland, they expectedly receive this: a box with a soft mattress on it.

How do you know that it is time to replace your mattress? What are the things you need to take note of when looking for a new one? What is the criteria for a good mattress?
The basics to mattress buying and owning. You should know these by heart when shopping for mattresses.
1. A good time to buy or replace is when your mattress is already 8 to 10 years old. By then, your old mattress would be filled with unknown species, it will actually feel heavy or you may start getting a bad back because of it. You could start waking up feeling more lethargic than well-rested and the longer you put up with an old mattress, the worse it will be for your body.
To ensure utmost crib safety for your babies, practice the following guidelines:No plastic coverings. Remove this immediately upon delivery of the crib mattress. Ensure that the crib mattress fits snugly and perfectly. It should be in the standard size – 27 1/4inches by 57 5/8inches – with a depth of at least 6 inches. Opt for a firm crib mattress rather than a really soft mattress as the latter is a hazard. Soft mattresses have the tendency to suffocate the infant or provide improper corner support, your baby may be trapped. There’s no need for a topper with a crib mattress. Again this is a safety hazard which can potentially suffocate babies. Use organic mattress if possible. In the same manner, use organic beddings. Babies shouldn’t be allowed to sleep on air mattress or waterbeds yet. Be aware of crib recalls or product recalls. These are usually published in the news.
