NUMU the breathable mattress
The best way to sleep for your baby.
Benefits of AirNettress
The AirNettress is made of a proprietary material in a permeable canvas, surrounded by an aluminum frame. This screen allows all comfort, resistance and durability, combined with the free circulation of air and temperature passing through it. These special features allow the mattress to significantly reduce the risk factors associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and help better treat other serious clinical issues that occur during infancy and childhood.
The many advantages of the NUMU mattress:
The increased risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in high-risk babies (placed asleep on their stomachs, covered in thick blankets while sleeping, or lying on very soft surfaces) may be explained by CO2 rebreathing exhaled, which is confined to a small, unventilated area near the airways of a sleeping child. The permeable screen allows free air circulation.
This quality, found only in AirNettress, is important for babies during the first months of life and especially in situations where breathing is only possible through the mattress, such as when sleeping on the stomach or when the face is covered for blanket or pillow. Rapid removal of CO2 and prevention of its build-up in a breathing child model, combined with minimal airflow resistance, can prevent the development of a risk factor for SIDS.
Overheating has been identified as an important risk factor for SIDS in several studies. The low thermal conductivity of the screen allows an ideal temperature balance and prevents overheating and sweating.
Overheating and hyperthermia are considered risk factors in the etiology of SIDS. Babies lose a lot of heat through the head and face, especially when the rest of the body is covered. Using this new mattress allows rapid temperature equilibrium and avoids overheating, thus reducing the occurrence of another significant risk factor for SIDS.
House mites (APD) are arthropods whose ideal development requires high humidity, moderate temperature (21-27 ° C) and an adequate food source, especially particles resulting from the flaking of human skin. The highest numbers of mites are usually found in dust samples taken from the bare surfaces of mattresses, bedding, upholstery, rugs, and carpets. The correlation between exposure to house dust mites, the development of allergic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis and the worsening of the disease has been documented in numerous studies.
Sleeping on this new mattress significantly reduces exposure to dust mites and can decrease the development of allergic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis, in addition to reducing the aggravation of existing diseases.
Motor development depends on several factors that may reside in the baby or in the environment. Starting in 1992, and since it was observed that Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) could be associated with babies sleeping in a supine position, usually the supine position, parents began to be encouraged to put their baby on back while sleeping. Some researchers have expressed concern that the supine sleeping position may delay motor development in babies. The porous, taut surface of this new mattress allows babies to be placed face down for longer periods of time. Additionally, the localized sagging of conventional mattresses, which creates “mattress memory” and can also impair motor development, does not occur in this new mattress.
The ability to place babies on the AirNettress in a supine position for longer periods of time can support the healthy development of full term babies, low risk preemies and very low birth weight preemies. The taut surface of the AirNettress bed, with no sag or “mattress memory”, provides an ideal orthopedic surface for babies to develop.
The mattress can be raised so that the baby's head and torso are elevated.
Changing the angle of the mattress helps elevate the baby's head, reduce regurgitation and reflux, and help unblock the airways, reducing nasal mucus.
All liquids, water, heavy food, vomit or urine, get into the mattress.
When defrosting, urine penetrates through the porous network and the sleeping surface remains completely dry. Avoid prolonged contact of urine with the baby's sensitive skin, avoiding skin irritation. In infants with gastroesophageal reflux disease or during periods of respiratory illness, regurgitated food and mucus penetrate the surface of the mattress, preventing secondary aspiration.
The strength and porous nature of the mattress surface facilitates the constant passage of air and allows thorough cleaning and sterilization.
Bacterial infections and the presence of bacterial toxins have been reported in many cases of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and the hypothesis that there is a common bacterial toxin for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has begun to be considered. Using this innovative mosquito net on the sleeping surface can prevent these risk factors associated with SIDS and create a healthy and hygienic environment for your baby.
THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
It all started with two premature babies...
In early 2001, our premature twins arrived into the world. A boy and a girl, and after three tumultuous months of hospital care, we were finally home. Happy on the one hand, but worried and anxious on the other. Our most precious treasures were now in a safe place. Would be?
Our boys needed proper care, so we started reading a lot of articles about premature babies and consulting a lot of experts about it. Over time, we came across complicated situations that made us realize that we needed a different mattress solution than we had.
One winter day, when we put our little girl to bed with a nylon net between the mattress and the sheet and then the blanket on top, we noticed that she often woke up in the morning, reluctant to eat and quite apathetic. We went to our pediatrician for an evaluation, and he told us that we were creating a greenhouse effect on his bed with this combination of nylon and blanket, causing his body to overheat for many hours at night.
Our son, who was diagnosed with developmental delay at an early stage, doctors recommended that he spend as much time as possible lying on his stomach under our supervision.
Over the course of one night, he learned to fend for himself and found himself in severe difficulty breathing, his face in a puddle of mucus. Watching this episode, we were so worried that we decided to definitely find a different mattress solution for our kids.
This is how the Numu mattress was born.
The real breathable mattress.
