The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins is the first of its kind in the marketplace. This design was inspired with twice the creativity to ultimately allow parents to maximize their twin baby’s sleep patterns. According to Author and Pediatrician Marc Weissbluth, M.D. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins, Eighty percent of parents he surveyed put their twins in the same crib when they came home from the hospital for both naps and night sleep. After about 4 months, many of them separated their twins. This customized 6-inch, high-density foam crib mattress was crafted incorporating our revolutionary pod design, but with 2 pods to accommodate co-sleeping for twins. The dual pod crib mattress has two sculpted, contoured pods on a diagonal at each end of the crib mattress to provide the infants with a safe, controlled and supportive co-sleeping environment. The dual pods also allow you to reposition your babies each time you or your caregiver lay them down to rest. This technique incorporates the new American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines where pediatricians suggest repositioning your baby to reduce flat spots or what is known as positional plagiocephaly. According to new AAP guidelines, babies are recommended to sleep in the supine position in a bare crib with no sleep positioners, crib bumpers or any other accessories and to avoid too much time in crib on firm flat surfaces. This new guideline was released to help reduce SIDS and to help avoid flat spots from developing. We do realize that it’s a personal preference for moms and dads with twins, but if you do decide to have them co-sleep, this is a perfect multi-functional option for you to consider. Dual Function Crib Mattress newborns The crib mattress is recommended for infants 0-3 months utilizing the pods. Utilization and rotation of the twins in the pods will relieve external pressure on the babies head and body. During this time period, it is critical for your babies head to take shape. infants After 3 months or once babies can roll over, flip the crib mattress to the smooth side and utilize this side of the crib mattress for the duration of their crib dwelling. At this point in time, you can decide whether to continue their co-sleeping arrangement or to separate them into their own crib dwellings.
