The Simba Hybrid Cot mattress is no longer available due to safety reasons. You can check our other cot mattress reviews here.

In this site I talk mainly about adult mattresses but the truth is that everyone deserves a quality mattress! In this Simba Hybrid cot mattress review, I will talk about this new baby mattress and whether it’s an option you should consider.

Few months ago, my nephew was born and just like I did with my niece I thought of buying him a cot mattress. After all, I am the ‘mattress guy’ in the family! This time, I decided to go with the Simba one which gave me the opportunity to write this review.


Just like their Simba Hybrid mattress, the cot one also features pocket springs. It is made of a total of 2 layers and the cover.

  • External layer: A 2cm soft foam layer that is essentially the pocket for the springs. It exists both on top and at the bottom so in total you get 4cm of foam. The foam is very breathable to allow airflow.
  • Internal layer: A 6cm pocket springs layer which is there to provide your baby with the needed support and comfort.

The cover of this mattress is made of a 99% Polyester and 1% Elastane. It is removable and you can machine wash it at 40 degrees. Unfortunately, there is no waterproof layer in this cot mattress which in my view is a big drawback. If you look for this feature then the Eve Baby mattress is a great option. Overall, the cot mattress is well built with a nice design.

The zip faces inwards to eliminate any risk of catching.


This is a very important aspect of any baby product and Simba made sure they used the best materials. The fabrics are all OEKO-TEX 100 Certified and they are hypo-allergenic. They also made some clever design changes. The zip faces inwards to eliminate any risk of catching as you can see in the image above. Simba made sure that the mattress is good for your baby but if you have any further questions, you should contact them directly and they will happily come back to you.


The Simba cot mattress comes with a standard free delivery service for any size you choose. Unfortunately, there is no trial period here but you get the full 10 year Simba guarantee. This is great to see and I was very happy that Simba offers the same support for both adult and baby mattresses.


The mattress is available in 2 sizes (cot & cot bed). The price is quite high with the cot size going for £145 and the cot bed one going for £175.

60cm x 120cm£145
70cm x 140cm£175


It’s really great seeing big makers like Simba innovating and creating new products. Their cot mattress is made of high quality materials with a design that has safety as its priority. The lack of a waterproof layer can be a problem but it’s easily solved with a protector. The price may be a bit high for some but you will get a cot mattress with a 10 year guarantee that can be used from all your children.

For any questions you may have, please drop me a line.
