Safety and Testing

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics when compared with back sleeping, stomach sleeping by infants poses a significant, increased risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). While it is not known precisely why stomach sleeping may contribute to SIDS, studies suggest stomach sleeping may expose a baby to one or more of the following risk factors:

  • Carbon dioxide buildup and low oxygen levels caused by a baby re-breathing their own exhaled breath
  • Overheating from lack of adequate body heat dissipation
  • Obstruction to the upper airway

Breathe Easy with Breathe Easy Baby


Since the Breathe Easy Baby sleep surface can be easily removed for laundering it reduces the possibility of harmful bacteria from building up on the sleep surface. And since the sleep surface is separate from the base, any liquids are kept away from your sleeping baby.

No Harmful Chemicals

Due to the Breathe Easy Baby’s design no harmful chemicals are used for the sleep system to pass federal flammability requirements.


The cradling effect of the sleep surface helps to reduce the pressure points that can cause a baby to develop a flat spot on the back of their head, which can lead to a medical condition known as plagiocephaly.

Testing Data

Breathe Easy Baby - Safety & Testing - Co2 Dissipation Report

The Breathe Easy Baby Breathable Crib Mattress has been subjected to the most rigorous scientific testing currently available. The Co2 dissipation and air permeability test was conducted by a global leader in consumer product safety testing. This testing house is the only one in the world with the capability to conduct such a test.

Their results

The air permeability test (ASTM D737) showed that our sleep surfaces are 330 times more air permeable compared to a conventional mattress.

The Co2 dissipation test demonstrated that Co2 dissipated 10 times faster through our breathable crib mattress than a conventional mattress.

The results from the carbon dioxide rebreathing assessment  of 6.55% C02-seconds show very low risk compared to a firm mattress and cotton sheet covering of 69.43% C02-seconds.

Their conclusion

Given the results of the carbon dioxide evaluation and the expert medical consultation the Breathe Easy Baby Crib Mattress poses a significantly lower hazard for carbon dioxide rebreathing than the tested firm mattress with a cotton sheet. The Breathe Easy Baby Crib Mattress demonstrates a significant decrease in carbon dioxide retention compared to the firm crib mattress and presents a significantly lower hazard level than the firm crib mattress.


The Breathe Easy Baby Breathable Crib Mattress complies with all federal regulations for crib mattresses, including mattress flammability (16 CFR part 1633) and labeling requirements (ASTM F2933-13).

The Breathe Easy Baby Breathable Crib Mattress complies with the world’s highest mattress standard for baby mattress firmness, developed by the Australia/New Zealand Department of Health (AS/NZS 8811.1:2013).
