What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 After years of research, the BEST CRIB MATTRESS IN THE WORLD is finally here!

We frequently ignore the importance of healthy sleep for babies and parents.  

In modern society, the average infant spends staggering amounts of time in their crib. The traditional crib mattress design has not changed significantly in the past several decades despite advances in modern technology.  

Current research highlights the importance of healthy sleep for both baby and parent. Infants get the healthiest sleep when in an oxygen-rich environment.  Traditional crib mattresses with vinyl covers and loose fitting sheets have been shown to trap carbon dioxide especially when the baby rolls over.  Parents often lose sleep worrying about their baby’s sleep.

By using air-permeable material and eliminating the fiberfill and need for sheets and pads, the Beathe-Through Crib Mattress is designed to promote healthy sleeping regardless of a baby's movement or positioning.

The SafeSleep Breathe-Through Crib Mattress's open-air design with side openings and air-permeable surface creates passive airflow that sustains an oxygen-rich environment for your baby.

Every inch is carefully designed with your baby’s safety in mind.

Choose our special donation reward option and the Molly Ann Gries Foundation will donate the mattress to a family in need.

CO2 Rebreathing Comparison

Scientific testing showed the SafeSleep Breathe-Through Crib Mattress has a significantly lower carbon dioxide retention than the firm crib mattress.

Firmness Testing

“There is often an assumption that the firmness of baby products is regulated but, alarmingly, it isn’t."  Dr. Ron Somers 

The SafeSleep Breathe-Through Mattress is the only mattress in the US that has passed the international test specified in the Australia/New Zealand standard, method 1: Crib Mattress - Test for firmness.

ASTM Air Permeability 

The air permeability of the SafeSleep Breathe-Through Crib Mattress is 330 times greater than the standard crib mattress with vinyl cover.  

CPSC Flammability

Meets all Consumer Product Safety Commission standards for safety and flammability  

Contains NO toxic chemicals or fire retardants.  

ASTM F2933-13 Compliance  

All SafeSleep products are in voluntary compliance with ASTM2933-13 crib mattress safety and labeling standards.

Risks and challenges

Now, we are production ready. We have passed all the necessary product testing, and we have already placed orders with some of our manufacturers.

We plan to have all our parts in-house by mid-March 2018 when we will begin the assembly and packaging process. We estimate we'll begin shipping in late March and early April 2018.

We don't anticipate any issues with this timeline. However, if anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during and after the campaign.
