By the end of 2018, we expect that the majority of children’s beds will have at least one of the following products: insulated insulation material that is made from insulated materials or a combination of insulation materials and an adhesive material.
A pe insulation material can be applied to the underside of a child’s bed and placed on top of the mattress to protect it from cold.
In addition, a heated insulation material such as foam, paper or foam cushions can be placed on the underside or in the middle of the bed to provide extra warmth.
If you can, we suggest having a heated mattress on the bedside table or shelf to keep your child warm during the cold months.
In 2018, the Government of Victoria said it is considering requiring children to use a heating pad on their bedside tables.
If a child needs to be put to sleep on a hot, sticky mattress, they should wear an appropriate pad or cover.
This may include a sleeping pad made of a material that insulates and insulates the mattress, such as felt insulation material.
