Points to note:
Babies have suffocated:
• In gaps between wrong-size mattress and side walls of product.
• Between the side walls and extra padding, such as stacked mattresses.
ALWAYS check mattress fit by pushing mattress tight to one corner. Look for any gaps between the mattress and the side walls. If this gap is larger than 1 in., the mattress does not fit and should NOT be used.
NEVER stack with another mattress. Use only ONE mattress.”
