The ilomomma Crib Mattress Wedge is a handy little item for new moms and babies! A lot of babies have issues with reflux and gas that creates discomfort for them but also interrupts their sleep patterns. The ilomomma Wedge is a device that allows you to create a very slight (twelve degree) elevation for your baby in their crib to ease the symptoms of reflux and gas.
The wedge comes in a plastic sleeve that you can keep for storage. Assembly is super simple. Unfold the wedge and zip it up locking it into place. The wedge is placed under the mattress. This is important. Once in place, you will notice the slight incline of the mattress. When putting your baby down to sleep or for a nap, simply make sure that they are on the incline from the waist up and that they are on the flat mattress from the waist down.
This foam wedge has proven to help alleviate reflux in babies and allow them to sleep more soundly and with fewer interruptions. This is great news for baby but also for new parents! The outside covering of the foam wedge is waterproof so if you need to wash it, either spot clean, or completely remove it from the foam to wash. The price point of this crib wedge is very inexpensive (under $30!) and is a great gift for new moms! Such a simple thing can be a huge lifesaver in those early days when you’re trying to figure out what works best for your baby and keeps them as comfortable as possible. When not in use, simply unzip the back and put it back into the storage bag. The wedge stores nice and small! A definite must have for new moms!
