Rubber sheets or foil protectors limit the free air circulation. They may also block or limit removing the amount of excess heat during sleep. According to midwives with many years work experience, the usage of this type of protector may lead to the overheating of a child during sleep. Blocking or limiting air circulation is very often the reason for a number of infant skin lesions and rashes. Therefore, it is not recommended to sleep or rest on a mattress covered with this type of protector for a long period of time.
The main causes of sleep disorders are: too high temperatures, lack of ventilation and limitations in the heat transfer. It is recommended that air-permeable bases are used. The best solution is the two stage protection of the mattress – the multilayer cover and the protector, which can easily be removed and washed. It provides 100% effective mattress protection against stains resulting from natural physiological processes (sweating, milk spitting up, leakage from the bottle or soaking of the diaper).
