Sagging badly in less than 4 months

1out of 5

Pros: Snug Fit

Cons: Flimsy Construction, Defective, Unsafe, Too Soft

Best Uses: None

Describe Yourself: Nanny, Child Care Professional, Postpartun Doula

My employers purchased this mattress for their newborn, and after less than 4 months of use, it is sagging badly in the middle. I just got off the phone with BRU customer service, and they directed me to the manufacturer, saying that my employers could not even exchange the defective and unsafe mattress since the 90 day return window had closed.

I would strongly suggest that if you do purchase this mattress, you test it out ASAP with a good amount of weight to see if it does sag at all.

With soft mattresses being a risk factor for SIDS, I do not think anyone should purchase this item! The risk is not worth it.
