Important Air Mattress Safety for Children

When traveling or having guests, you may find that it is convenient to use an air mattress. While these mattresses are great for most people, they are unsafe for infants. These surfaces are too soft for use with sleeping infants. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported several tragic deaths, mostly of infants younger than eight months of age who were placed on air mattresses to sleep. These babies were either placed face down or fell into gaps between the mattress and a wall or adjacent furniture. The softness of the surface on these air mattresses does not allow young babies to maintain a clear airway. To be safe, never place a child younger than one on an air mattress to sleep.
