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:

Breathe Easy Baby

The Breathe Easy Baby Sleep Surface provides babies with an uninterrupted flow of oxygen.
“Certain crib mattresses have been designed with air-permeable materials to reduce rebreathing of expired gasses, in the event that an infant ends up in the prone position during sleep, and these may be preferable to those with air-impermeable materials.”

Heat Dissipation

The porous nature of the sleep surface provides babies with uninterrupted airflow and helps to prevent babies from overheating and to maintain their core body temperature.
“…a permeable sleeping surface exhibited significantly better aeration properties in dispersing carbon dioxide and in preventing its accumulation. They also found the measured temperature within the head box to be substantially lower with the more permeable mattress, concluding that it was due to faster heat dissipation.”

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

Our sleep surfaces require no additional harmful chemicals in order to comply with federal crib mattress flammability requirements


The cradling effect of our sleep surfaces reduces the pressure points commonly associated with conventional filled mattresses which are primarily responsible for infant plagiocephaly, otherwise known as “flat head syndrome”. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as many as one in two of all infants may experience mild to severe forms of this condition

Testing Data

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).
