Serious safety failures: 1. Insufficient firmness based on the standard test, creating a risk of suffocation. 2. The actual length is 4.5cms greater than what's stated on the product. Minor safety failure: 1. The actual width is 4cms greater than what's stated on the product. A tight fitting mattress could impede the movement of a dropside; or could cause sections of the mattress to deform and create a stepping aid which would reduce the safety provided by the height of a cot's sides. Ensure your mattress is not too tight in your cot. 2. The actual thickness is 2cm greater than what's stated on the product. Depending on the cot depth, this could pose a fall risk.
Heavenly Dreams has provided CHOICE with photographs showing that their mattress sample passed the mattress firmness test.
