    It dont really matter.but for peace of mind I'd pay midrange for one.My little one has a mothercare spring interior.It does tend to keep shape better and it is breathable.Foam is ok but i dont think they last as long xx

    when i got mine they said foam lasts a year max, but a spring one should last up to 5-7 years (mines a cotbed) and i got one for 70 quid from babies r us, its designed to keep the temperature of baby correct and steady

    The foam ones are absolutely rubbish and become indented where baby lies within a few weeks...I've had 3 (cot, crib and moses basket) and it happened with all of them:hissy:

    Definitely a sprung mattress, there are many variations of sprung mattresses too but as long as it's sprung and has a removable, washable top part (in case of accidents, sick, poo etc:dohh:) then that should be enough. Anti-allergy is very expensive and it's cheaper to buy an anti-allergy mattress protector than the mattress:happydance:

    We've gone for a sprung one too - was happy to pay a little more so that it lasts the distance! I've heard foam ones are crap too.
     
  11. Good question I was wondering about that myself.

    Me and my OH want to get a sprung mattress for the cotbed we're getting. It should hopefully last a lot longer than the foam ones and they look better too for bump to sleep on.
