The only baby mattress designed to keep your baby cooler, aid breathing and prevent flat head syndrome Clinically proven to prevent flat head syndrome Reviews What parents say Katy L "At the age of 3 months my little boy had severe plagiocephaly. A flattening to one side of his head This is due to him always lying on the same side of his head. I wasn't aware at the time the damage this could do to him. It is never discussed until it happens. He is such a good baby and loved lying on his back.
He spent some time in his car seat, which is what I think was the main cause of it. When I spoke to my health visitor about it she just told me to stop lying him on his back. They didn't actually offer any treatment as it only 'cosmetic' I was devastated. All I could think of was how cruel people can be about appearance.
I independently looked in to treatments. I didn't want to put him through wearing a helmet for 23 hours a day. I felt like there was no solution.
Then someone recommended a cranial osteopath that specialised in plagiocephaly flat head syndrome. Philip Owen in Gatley changed our lives.
He recommended the sleep curve mattress. The most amazing invention that I can't recommend enough for all babies. It prevents and helps to correct flat head syndrome. We are still undergoing treatment but the results so far are amazing.
I just wanted to write this post to help and give hope to any other mums or dads out there that are currently looking at the gorgeous baby in tears. I want to raise awareness of plagiocephaly and how it can be prevented. I feel it should be included in antenatal classes to raise awareness.
It has really affected his sleep and this, in turn, has really affected our sleep. By the time he was two months old, I held him pretty much all of the time, particularly during his naps as otherwise he would not sleep during the day at all. This in itself felt like a miracle but it was just the beginning and after a few days on the mattress he was sleeping for up to an hour at a time. I have resolved to buy the next mattress up as soon as he is sleeping in his cot as the difference a decent nap and night makes is unbelievable, not just for the baby but for the whole family.
We had purchased a good mattress for his cot marketed as one of the best , but noticed that the flattening was progressively getting worse despite our best efforts to reposition our son during his sleep, and to keep him off his back during the day.
We started using the Sleepcurve cot bed mattress when our son was 6. We also use the Sleepcurve activity mat under his play gym and for nappy changes. We have also bought a Sleepcurve crib mattress for the bassinet and we intend to use this for our next arrival. I am very pleased with the results so far and would definitely recommend this product to other mums and we already have!
We only wish we had known about this product sooner.
He slept well in the basket and seemed comfortable. Non removable outer cover, sponge clean only. It is important that your baby sleeps on a permanent firm surface The cause of this denting is because foam as product does not like heat weight and damp which is precisely what a baby is!
Issy Our daughter had a flat head at the 6 week review. We bought a sleep curve mattress and she has been in it for ten weeks. The result has been amazing. Her head is still a little mishapen but the flat bit has completely gone. The physio at Alder Hey told us of the mattress, and from the very first use, it took enough pressure off that my little girl could freely lie on either side without discomfort.
As a first time mum it was a lot to take in and to find out the SleepCurve mattress was there to help was such a relief. So once again, on behalf of my family and I, thank you so much for your years of dedication to your field. It is not something that forms part of your training as a midwife, when it should be something that more mums are aware of.
My two are good sleepers and fortunately neither has displayed any signs of flattening. I now lay him on his SleepCurve cot mattress wide awake and he enjoys lying listening to a cd. Then he sleeps soundly without needing to be held and sleeps very soundly through until his feed both previously unheard of.
Day time was hard for him, but when night time came he slept right through. I highly recommend it!
It just seems a much more comfortable sleep for her as her chin does not rest on her chest! Jenny We bought a SleepCurve mattress when my son was 2 months old as he had developed flat head syndrome. It took him a while to adjust to sleeping on it, but after a week or so he slept very well on it. The mattress really helped the shape of his head improve and now he is 6 months old, it is hardly noticeable. Our second child has been less of a wriggler than the first, so he developed a rather flat head shape after months positional plagiocephaly.
Hayley I am very pleased with the SleepCurve Mattress. We purchased this as our baby was starting to get a flat head from lying on the same side. I am pleased to say this has helped and improved the shape of his head! He also sleeps through and seems to be very comfortable at night. Recommended to lots of my friends! Jemma I recently purchased a SleepCurve Moses basket mattress for my son. I liked the fact it helps with posture and breathing, as well as helping to prevent Flat Head Syndrome. I am really pleased with the mattress and will definitely be looking to purchase one for a cot shortly.
Kelly We bought the SleepCurve mattress after we saw it advertised in parenting magazines and I have to say it is the best thing we bought for our son now 7 weeks old. When the health visitor and Midwife came round to see us we showed them both and neither of them had seen it before, so we explained all of the benefits of having one and they have now passed on the information to new and soon to be parents which we are really glad about.
I hope you have found this review helpful. Jane We bought both the SleepCurve cot and moses basket mattresses. Unfortunately the mattress for the moses basket did not fit which was disappointing so therefore never used. Sleep was an issue so we put her in the cot from 2 months on her SleepCurve mattress and have not looked back since. We are very pleased with this product and find it easy to clean and move the parts around when necessary. Kylie My son is now 4 months old and we have completely enjoyed our SleepCurve purchase, although he is now getting a little big for his moses basket and will be moving into his cot shortly.
I can happily report that he has a beautifully shaped head avoiding the dreaded flat head syndrome though unfortunately still has the line of lost hair across the back of this head.
We also have no reflux during our first few months. Andrew and Virginie We have bought the SleepCurve cot bed mattress for our second child to avoid the flat head syndrome. Our first child developed a flat head after a difficult birth and consequently had to wear on helmet for 8 months.
We wanted to make sure this bad experience will not occur for our second child and therefore purchased a Sleepcurve mattress. Our son is now 4 months old and has a perfectly curved head.
How do I position the wedgehog on top of the mattress? Warranty There are several manufacturers who supply their mattresses with year warranties which often play a large factor in customers buying the product over an alternative.
We can honestly say that we are very pleased with our purchase and recommend it strongly. Maria I bought the SleepCurve mattress as I had read good reviews about how it had helped babies with "flat head syndrome". As my baby had quite a flat head I was desperate to do all I could to help him!
I have had the mattress for a few months now and I believe it has helped my baby. I'm really pleased with the mattress and thought it was a reasonable price too.
My baby's head is now rounding out more. I would definitely recommend the mattress to other parents worried about flat head syndrome. Michaela I bought a SleepCurve mattress for my crib. Really I bought it for peace of mind as I read that the baby couldn't roll on its back and my major worry was something would happen when I was asleep! All in all I would recommend as it certainly took a worry off my mind!
Kathryn I bought a SleepCurve mattress when my son was two weeks old, replacing the standard mattress that came with his Moses basket. When it first arrived I wasn't sure about the shape as it was so different from the usual and I was worried that his head seemed to tip back a bit, but we gave it a go.
He slept well in the basket and seemed comfortable. After three months his head is a lovely round shape with no flat spots and I feel sure that the mattress helped with this.
I am really impressed with the quality of the product and it is far superior to the standard mattress.
In terms of the shape of the mattress and finding suitable sheets, I have found that using cotton blankets rather than standard sheets fit the contours much better and gives a lovely soft surface to sleep on.
I have recommended the product to friends and I am definitely buying the next stage for his cot - and if we have another child I would buy this product straight away for the Moses basket. James When we noticed the flat head and that it was becoming more pronounced, we researched the condition and also visited our GP. We decided to make some changes to his routine and sleep. We're confident that it won't need any medical intervention, or helmet which were some of the options we'd researched and discussed with the GP either through the NHS or private.
Having not been aware of the condition, or indeed experienced it with our first child, we wish that we had the SleepCurve mattress sooner. Whilst it may not have completely mitigated the condition completely, the experience of the last few months makes us believe that it could have helped to manage and prevent such an extreme flattened head positional plagiocephaly than our son experienced. Rebekah I would like to give some feedback on the SleepCurve mattress.
We purchased one as our son lay with his head facing to the right from birth, both when he was awake and asleep and began to develop a prominent flattening of his head, which resulted in the right side of his face protruding forward. After trying to turn his head left when he was playing on his back and when he was sleeping, and trying to create a wedge to stop him turning to his right, he would always turn right again.
A chance conversation with a friend suggested we try a SleepCurve mattress as they had had the same problem with their baby. We bought the cot size as our son was ready to go into his big cot. He was roughly 3 months old at the time.
