Anstel News

We would like to share some updates on new and exciting developments across our product lines.

We’ve moved!

Last week we completed the move into our new office and warehouse; a significantly larger space, closer to the city, plenty of onsite parking and the latest and greatest facilities!

This new building houses our complete office, showroom, warehouse and manufacturing facilities all under the one roof.

What’s more, it’s located only 25 mins from the Airport and Melbourne CBD, so we’re much closer to the action.

If you’re visiting suppliers in Melbourne, count us in – we’d love to welcome you!

We have even more exciting news to share with you all  in a few weeks, so stay tuned!

How to choose the best cot mattress

We all want the best for our children.  From the moment we hold them in our arms, we consider their well-being above all else.

From the car seat that we choose, to the mattress for their cot, as parents we do our best to ensure their safety.

However… did you know that in Australia there are currently no laws against a baby mattress with a high risk of SIDS? There are standards, but no laws.

How to choose the best cot mattress?

Dr Ron Somers addressed this in his research in South Australia. Whilst best practice in infant care specifies we use a firm mattress, there is no definition of what that actually means.

That’s where his test comes into the discussion. Dr Somers created a video to show parents how they can test their child’s mattress at home.  It’s a simple process which only requires items you’ll probably have lying around at home.

But to save you the trouble of having to do it, we’ve conducted the test for you with a BabyRest mattress.

The way the test is conducted is as follows:

  • Take two, one litre cardboard milk cartons (full of milk) and mark the bottom of one of them with a line measured 4cm from the base
  • Take 12 CDs and wrap them firmly in cling wrap
  • Sit the CDs in the middle of the mattress and place the marked milk carton on top of the CDs with the 4cm overhanging (see image below)
  • Sit the second full milk carton on top of the first
  • If the section marked below the 4cm line on the bottom milk carton touches the mattress, the mattress is too soft.
  • If the section marked below the 4cm line on the bottom milk carton DOES NOT touch the mattress, it is firm enough.

Of course BabyRest passed and is deemed firm enough!
