    Hi girls,

    I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on which mattress we should buy for our LO's cotbed.

    We have a choice between foam or sprung.....not much difference in price, but is one better than the other?? My logic tells me that sprung should last a bit longer, as it shouldn't get dents in it so quickly....

    Can anyone help?!

    My LO is still in the wooden crib (foam mattress) but when we move up to a cot I am going to go for another foam mattress, it seems comfier and squashier for them... it's not like he is heavy like me and hubby and needs a sprung mattress! You might think differently though, especially if you are thinking of using a cotbed and having LO in it for a few years. I need to get moving get my cot picked!

    We're getting a cotbed, in the hope it will last til she is 3 or 4....but I guess we can always replace the matress in a couple of years if needs be....

    Thanks for your advice xx

    I have used foam and sprung in the past and feel that the sprung ones last alot longer and are a better quality and more comfy. I for one wouldnt want to sleep on a foam matress lol

    Lola-Rose still sleeps in her moses basket but I have the sprung madress in her cotbed.
    Much more comfy in my opinion and if you're going for the quality,the sprung definitely lasts longer.
