John Lewis is recalling its mattress over fears it may be unsafe for babies

The mattress has two different sides designed to support your baby as it grows, but the newborn side has failed the firmness test meaning it could be unsafe.

The other side has passed the test and is safe to use regardless of the age of your child.

The side that did not pass the safety test has soft and gentle micro pocket springs. The 12+ side has firmer larger pocket springs, which are better for toddlers.

Each side was designed to give maximum comfort and correct spinal support for each stage of growth.

Normally, the mattress should be turned when your child turns one, to give the correct support.

But now, the retailer is recommending that customers rotate their mattresses to the safe 12 month+ side immediately, – even if their child is younger.

The safe side can be identified by unzipping the cover.

John Lewis says it will arrange to collect your mattress, replace it and get you a refund. To organise this you need to ring 01698 545 160.

The department store says that it will dispose of your mattress in a responsible way.

A statement on the John Lewis website read: “We are obliged to ensure the mattress is not used any more, and does not find its way onto secondary markets.

“We’re sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this product recall may cause you.”
