In some instances, at the request of members and when products are still available on the second-hand market and websites like eBay, we include discontinued models in the tables. 'Tested models' are still available in shops at time of publication; 'discontinued models' might be found second-hand or in clearance sales.
The mattress length and width are based on information found on the box, instructions, swing tag and marking on the mattress base, and where these vary the smallest value is shown. The mattress thickness is based on the same sources of information, and the greatest value is shown.
