An independent sleep study has shown that soothing vibrations can help your baby sleep better, longer and help reduce symptoms of restlessness and colic. The results of the sleep study will be published in a science journal this year.
The Contours® Vibes™ 2-Stage Soothing Vibrations is designed with patented technology that offers soothing vibrations built right into a premium crib mattress. This design has been tested out by parents with infants to help comfort their babies. We know that toddlers love it too!
If you have purchased the Contours® Vibes™ Crib Mattress at the store, the instruction book is taped to the inside of the point of purchase insert on the top of the mattress. Just remove from the insert and keep for future use. You can also view instructional video for set up and functionality here. If you purchased the crib mattress online, the instructions will be inserted inside the shipping bag.
The remote for the Contours® Vibes™ Crib Mattress is safely stored inside the mattress vibration unit. Simply unscrew the electronic unit on the side of the mattress and the remote as well as 2 remote batteries will be inside.
The remote allows you to change the vibration settings to one of three settings from whisper (small circle light), gentle (medium circle light) and heartbeat (heartbeat light) modes.
The remote allows you to set the timer to 15, 30 or 45 minutes. The vibrations will gradually turn off after the time set runs out.
We do include two “CR 2032” cell batteries for the remote. The remote and the batteries are shipped packaged inside the mattress electronic battery drawer remote batteries. You will need to purchase 3 “D” cell batteries for the mattress vibrating electronic separately.
In order to change the settings on the mattress vibration electronic, you must use the remote included. We have the instruction manual available on the product page as well as created a quick video tutorial here to help you learn how to use the vibration and timer settings for the Contours® Vibes™ 2-Stage Soothing Vibrations Crib Mattress.
The soft glow LED lights indicate the mattress is on. The LEDs will stay on during the vibration mode time set. Crib mattress pads and sheets will cover the electronic easily and mute the light.
The remote has been tested to over a 80-foot distance unobstructed to work with the unit. However, since homes vary so much with various layouts and obstructions, those obstructions can affect the distance that the signal will reach uninterrupted. We recommend testing it out from various locations in your home to change the vibration mode. This can help you start a vibration mode if you hear your baby stirring before nap time is over. As always, check on your baby as often as you are comfortable.
We offer a limited lifetime warranty on the mattress workmanship and materials. The electronic component and remote features a one year warranty. Register your product here to have it extended to two years. Please enter the date of manufacture on the crib mattress law tags in order for your warranty to take effect.
Please contact our Consumer Services Department for instructions on how to replace the vibrating electronic unit.
The Contours Vibes™ Crib Mattress weighs only 15.5 pounds.
The Contours Vibes™ Crib Mattress can be used for newborns, infants and toddlers up to 60 pounds.
The Contours® Vibes™ 2-Stage Soothing Vibrations Crib Mattress is a 2-stage dual firmness design with a firmer side for infants and a cozier side for toddlers. A small silk tag is sewn into the infant side that identifies it as the infant side. Many families use this side for the first 1.5 to 2 years, and then flip the mattress to the toddler side at that stage. We have ensured that both sides of this design are safe to use with infants and toddlers.
The Contours® Vibes™ Crib Mattress is sized to fit all standard full-size cribs and toddler beds so it is approximately 52” long by 27.5” wide for a snug fit
Yes, the Contours® Vibes™ Crib Mattress is waterproof. The cotton cover is enhanced with a waterproof membrane to help keep liquids from seeping inside so you can help keep nasty odors, mold and mildew from growing inside.
We always recommend using a waterproof crib mattress pad to help keep your baby’s mattress fresh. If the crib mattress is dirty or stained, first wipe away any debris on the surface. Use gentle soap and water with a non-abrasive cloth spot clean the area. Wipe clean with fresh water and allow to air dry before putting any bedding back onto the mattress.
Simply wipe down the outside housing of the electronic and the remote with a damp cloth, a baby wipe or a gentle cleaning towelette. Do not insert any part of the electronics or the remote into water or spray with a cleanser.
