It is most common in babies — affecting 4 in 10 infants — but can happen to almost everyone at some point in their lives. Cot wedges reflux wedges can cut down the amount a baby regurgitates considerably. Why do I need a baby reflux wedge?
Positioning and inclining the upper body of your little one is the single most important consideration with managing infant reflux.
This raised position is also fantastic for babies struggling with congestion and ear ache or breathing difficulties.
What size cot wedge do I need? It is important to match the wedge with the width of mattress you have.
Do you recommend baby hammocks? This makes overnight feeding easier, too quick commute. Room sharing for sleep is recommended for babies for the first months of life, as long as this room is kept smoke free and is well ventilated.
If you have a standard cot, the width will be 60cm wide or a cotbed is 70cm wide. If you have a special size cot or an unusual measurement that is not available, we can help you.

They are available in 28cm Moses, 38cm Crib, 60cm Cot and 70cm Cot bed sizes. Child and Adult wedges are also available. How do I position the wedgehog on top of the mattress? The mattress is raised from underneath There is no need to be as specific about where you put the wedge in relation to your baby, as long as their feet are at the foot of the cot for safer sleeping and the wedge is in place underneath to provide the essential lift for your baby.
Why not just raise the mattress and make an incline with a pillow or blanket?
They have been measured and tested for the best possible angle of elevation, to help your baby. This is definitely not recommended. Although studies show that reflux occurs less frequently in the prone tummy position, please consult with a health professional if you feel that your little one will benefit from tummy prone sleeping.
We would always recommend supine back sleeping on all our wedges, in accordance with NHS guidelines.
