Following on from the other Mattress post
I have been given a moses basket, cotbed and crib, I want to get a new mattress for all three but there is so much choice I dont know where to start can anyone give me any reccommendations ?
or at least what things I need to look for?

I bought a cheap mattress for the Moses basket, was only used a few times at my mums. Went for a slightly dearer one for the crib which was used for 9 months. And spent about £90 on the cot mattress. I can't think what it was but they were all from Boots.com

I got a really good price on a mattress from boots too.
Babymattressesonline.co.uk is probably best place to look
Measure the 3 things to see what size you need. For Moses basket you just need a cheap foam one. Crib and cot theres more choice. I always bought a sprung cot one with removable washable cover

Sprung for cot as will presumably get more use. Foam is still fine but apparently doesn't last as long (the support) so would be fine for crib. Moses are usually cheap

I Remember thinking the same when we lookek at them firstt time. Have to say we went for fairly basic ones for both the mosses basket and cot. Both were absolutely fine and the cot foam one is still going well a year after she moved into it.

I've just bought my Moses basket mattress from an eBay shop called newborn.world.
They make them to measure so you can get the exact size you need and it only cost me £7.99 including delivery. It's just arrived today and is much nicer and thicker than the original mamas and papas one I had. I just don't know if , as per my thread earlier , its meant to have some holes cut in it.
For our cot bed we bought a spring mattress rather than foam as they last much longer, W is 20 months now and its still really firm so worth spending extra for that

Foam for Moses and Crib - Baby mattresses online are good
Sprung for the Cot, we didn't want to scrimp on that so we bought from mamas and papas
You'll need to make sure both the crib and cot ones have a washable cover as they do often get sick on them even through sheets. Moses ones are often PVC covered but you may need a cover for that too.
