Here’s what our customers as well as some exquisite celebs like Kat Von D, Kelly Rutherford, Kimberly Van Der Beek, John Malkovich, Lykke Li, and Elijah Blue say about us!
As per the instructions, we flipped and rotated the mattress regularly and the wool stuffing compressed in about 2 weeks. I also purchased a protector and fitted sheets and I totally recommend them!
I plan to order a Montesori bed and other things from Home of Wool, I'm a big fan now!
The wool compresses, and the instructions state that you should vary the sleeping area so that the compression is even across the pad, and this is totally impractical with a bassinet - potentially dangerous, even.
Because you really can't alternate where your infant is going to sleep, you end up with a baby-shaped depression in the center, effectively creating something like a moses pod or bumper, both of which are advised against for safe sleep due to the increased incidence of SIDS associated with anything but a completely flat sleep surface.
If this product is going to continue to be sold, I would urge Home of Wool to pre-compress the pads so that this divet doesn't occur and babies can sleep safely.
We only bought the Halo because we thought this was an option for the mattress, so now I'm out not only the cost of the mattress, sheets and puddle pad, but also the Halo bassinet itself since I'm not comfortable using the polyurethane mattress it came with.
We're going to scrap it all and get a mini-crib with a non-toxic mattress that won't compress.
One extra star for the puddle pad, which does appear to be a good protector against accidents. I would love one for our king size bed, and wish I'd spent the money on that instead.
