There are different types of baby mattresses: with one you can remove the cover (the cover that surrounds the mattress), with the other you cannot.
It is smart to go for a mattress with a detachable cover, because there is a good chance that milk or the content of an overflowing diaper will regularly end up on the mattress.
Do you want to solve that problem with a tarp or a mattress protector? Experts do not recommend this, because your baby will not be able to dissipate his body heat properly. And overheating can potentially lead to SIDS. You prefer to wash a detachable cover at sixty degrees – that way you can make short work of dust mites and their eggs.

Another thing to watch out for: some manufacturers make mattresses that are said to be ‘anti-mosquito’. However, if any organism killers have been used, you should be careful as they can be harmful to children. A mosquito net is a better solution to prevent mosquito bites.
Turn the mattress over
If you want to keep your baby’s mattress neat and firm, it is important to maintain it properly. You can do this by turning the mattress once or twice a month. And then not only from head to foot, but also from bottom to top. Also make sure that the bed base is well ventilated. He must leave at least half of the mattress uncovered.
