With twins you have to be twice as creative with their sleeping arrangements and twice as conscious of their sleeping patterns. The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning is a uniquely designed crib mattress that is contoured in two areas with the hallmark pod design of The Cranial Cradle Collection to support the delicate head and body of both babies which may reduce the risk of cranial deformations as well as cranial-related developmental delays that can be caused by positional plagiocephaly. The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning is the first of its kind in the marketplace.
The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning was designed in response to the research conducted by The American Academy of Pediatrics regarding the rising incidence of positional plagiocephaly in infants due to the new safe sleep practices that recommend that "back is best" and for babies to sleep in a supine position because the pressure that is exerted by laying a baby down on a flat surface can lead to plagiocephaly. Although this position has been proven to be the safest for your babies to protect them against Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (S.I.D.S. or crib death), this position can also cause flattening on the posterior portion of their heads. This condition is also one of the most common head-shape deformities there is, and it is colloquially known as "flat-head syndrome" but the scientific terms are positional plagiocephaly, deformational plagiocephaly, and occipital plagiocephaly, given the particular cranial bone that is usually impacted in these instances..
The Cranial Cradle revolutionary design includes dual interior sculpted pod areas to reduce the external pressure on the heads of both twin babies during the critical first 0-5 months when their heads are taking shape. The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning is crafted with superior quality, high-density, ultra-firm foam for amazing comfort, and the contoured pods provide additional neck support. This innovative pod design may also help your babies to sleep more soundly by giving them a sense of security similar to swaddling when they are placed within the contours of the pod.
The Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning is crafted with two recessed pod areas, one for each baby, which allow alternation each night for each baby into the other pod. This is known as The Repositioning Method. Repositioning is a posturing method used for infants to ensure that they are not exerting weight on the same area of their developing craniums each time they are laid down to sleep. This continual alternation ensures that they do not remain in one sleeping pose during the crucial first 0-5 months when they are most at risk of developing plagiocephaly and other similar conditions. Upon alternating babies between pods, parents need only to simply rotate their babies’ heads slightly from side-to-side each time they are laid within the contours of the pods to sleep, and The Repositioning Method is complete.
Even if you don't have twins, The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning allows you to reposition your baby daily from pod-to-pod to avoid the same sleeping pose which can lead to plagiocephaly. Rotation between the two pods does not affect your baby’s sleeping pattern and may help your baby to sleep more soundly by giving them a sense of security similar to swaddling when they are placed within the contours of the pods.
Once your babies have reached five months of age, or once they are able to roll over, just flip The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning over to the opposite side of the mattress which is flat and smooth. The six inches of ultra-firm foam core used in The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress Collection is unparalleled and provides maximum support and comfort for your baby for the entirety of their precious time spent sleeping in their crib dwelling.
