Joey Baby Mattress Care Guide

Welcome, dear parent, to the world of babyhood! Thank you for choosing the Joey Baby Mattress to be your little one’s sleep companion for the days to come. Here are some tips and tricks on how to care for your Joey Baby Mattress like a pro:

1) Ensure safe and proper usage

The Joey Baby Mattress is meant to be used on a flat and even surface.

If you’re using a cot or a crib, it is very important to ensure that the mattress fits snugly into the base without any gaps or spaces around the edge of the crib. This makes sleeping more comfortable for your baby as their movements will not affect the mattress.

Another safety tip is to reduce loose bedding items in your baby’s cot or crib. Sheets and blankets should be tucked in firmly. Avoid placing extra quilts, pillows, and soft toys in the crib with your baby especially when they are unsupervised, as this could increase the risk of accidental strangulation or suffocation.

2) Spot cleaning

Dilute a small amount of detergent with water and spray it on the affected spot. Wipe with a slightly damp cleaning cloth, and let it air dry naturally.

If you’d like to keep the mattress stain free, you can consider using the baby crib sheet layering trick. Parents often layer several sheets and waterproof pads (such as the Joey Baby Mattress Protector or disposable baby underpads) over the mattress so that they can remove the top ones when they become soiled. This makes it easier to maintain the baby mattress’s cleanliness, especially during middle-of-the-night accidents. You got this!

3) Routine maintenance

The Joey Baby Mattress can be vacuumed with small, handheld vacuums to remove dust and dirt. We also recommend frequent replacement of coverings at least once or twice a week, or whenever the bed is soiled. The mattress can be cleaned with a simple wipe-down using warm water and diluted detergent. Air dry the mattress naturally (preferably away from our blazing hot tropical sun!), and spray down with a baby-friendly disinfectant for extra assurance.


By following these simple steps, you’ll definitely be able to ensure a cozy and comfy sleeping environment for your little one. We wish both you and your little one the sweetest dreams!
