Yes, even businesses can end up in divorce. As with most divorces, we focused on the children. In this case, our baby! Our revolutionary crib mattress that addresses all the safety and comfort issues that no other standard crib mattress can.
However, like many divorces, we did not agree on how to best raise “our baby.” Like most divorced couples sharing custody of a child, we took different approaches to nurturing “our baby.” We didn’t want to change our perfect baby. We just had some fundamental differences on how to best raise her! Hence, the difference between Breathe Easy Baby and SafeSleep® emerged.
Similarities and Differences
Let’s start with the similarities:
- Both Mattresses have no fill or core
- Both use solid hardwoods
- Both have vented openings for passive air-flow
- Both use the same spring loaded steel tube bar system
- Both use the same stainless steel hinge system
- Both use a 3D air-permeable topper a baby can breathe right through

Now, the differences:
