numu® air™ Is a Unique Sleep Surface Aimed at Reducing SIDS Risk Factors

The causes of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) are largely unknown, but breathing problems and overheating are among the known risk factors. With this in mind, we reinvented the infant bed mattress from the ground up into a sleep surface with unprecedented air permeability for better breathing and reduced heat accumulation.

Baby Sleeping on the Tummy

American Academy of Pediatrics recommends putting babies to sleep on their back through baby’s first year, but this may not always be feasible!

When they’re several months old, babies can turn in their sleep. So even if the parents follow recommendations and put their baby on the back for the night, the baby can end up facing down later. That’s why it’s very important to choose the safest breathe-through crib mattress for your newborn baby.

Fresh Air Reduces Overheating

The design of numu® air™ focuses on promoting the flow of fresh air through its net structure, effectively reducing the risk of overheating—a known risk factor associated with SIDS.

Overheating can disturb a baby’s sleep and might pose significant health risks. The continuous air circulation provided by numu® air™ ensures that excess heat is not trapped around your baby, keeping them comfortable.

That’s why numu® air™ is a safer, more reassuring choice for parents and their babies.

Full Permeability to Liquids

One of the unique features of numu® air™ is its full permeability to liquids, a critical factor for both safety and cleanliness. Traditional mattresses often allow liquids to pool, posing a hazard near a baby’s airways.

numu® air™, with its advanced design, lets liquids pass through, preventing any dangerous accumulation and ensuring a dry, comfortable surface for your baby. This not only enhances safety by keeping airways clear but also maintains a clean and pleasant sleep environment, making nighttime accidents less of a worry.
