Celebrating Australian Made Week with BabyRest

Natural, high-quality Australian Made products

In a world where mass production often overshadows craftsmanship and quality, there's something special about products made with care and attention to detail - and designed to last. At BabyRest, we've been proudly crafting premium nursery essentials for over 40 years, rooted in our Australian heritage and family values. As we celebrate Australian Made Week, it's the perfect time to reflect on what makes choosing locally-made products like ours so special. 


A family legacy  

BabyRest isn't just a brand; it's a testament to the dedication and passion of our family. It all started in the 1970s, when a mother's love for her children sparked the idea for better nursery bedding. Fuelled by a desire to provide the best for her little ones, she created a baby pillow that revolutionised sleep and comfort for infants. And thus, BabyRest was born. 

From those humble beginnings, we've grown into a third-generation family business, committed to creating products that enhance the joy of parenthood. Our journey has been guided by a simple philosophy: safety, comfort, and quality above all else. As parents ourselves, we understand the importance of peace of mind when it comes to choosing products for your little ones. That's why every BabyRest product is designed to meet the highest standards of safety and durability, ensuring a lifetime of comfort and support for your growing family. 


Australian innovation at its finest 

At BabyRest, innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We're proud to be pioneers in the baby and toddler space, constantly pushing the boundaries to create products that are both innovative and practical. A great example is our DuoCore™️ Bamboo Cot Mattress – the first true dual-sided mattress in Australia, featuring both a baby side and a toddler side for optimal comfort and support at every stage of development. 

But our commitment to innovation doesn't stop there. We understand that nothing is as important in ensuring that parents feel confident in the safety of the products they choose for their little ones. That's why we go above and beyond industry standards, continually striving to not only meet, but exceed mandatory testing requirements. 
We're also leading the way in safety testing, being the first to pass the new CO2 rebreathing test – a testament to our dedication to providing parents with peace of mind knowing that their little ones are sleeping safely. 

Recognised by the prestigious INPAA (Infant & Nursery Products Alliance of Australia), the CO2 rebreathing test, once adopted, is poised to become a significant Australian standard moving forward. 

In collaboration with Dr. Ron Somers, the pioneer behind the Firmness Standard for Infant Sleep Surfaces, we've undertaken extensive testing on our DuoCore cot mattress. This includes assessing its CO2 absorption levels against a new standard, ensuring it meets the prescribed safe limits. We are proud to be at the leading edge of innovation, with the BabyRest DuoCore cot mattress the first of our products to pass the new CO2 rebreathing test.

When you choose BabyRest, you're not just getting a product; you're getting a guarantee of excellence. Our products are proudly certified by Australian Made, ensuring that they meet the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. 

But the benefits go beyond just the product itself. By choosing Australian Made, you're supporting the local economy and creating jobs for Australian workers. You're also reducing your carbon footprint by opting for products that are made closer to home, minimising the environmental impact of transportation and production. 

And perhaps most importantly, you're choosing safety and peace of mind for your little ones. Australian Made products are subject to rigorous safety standards, giving you confidence that you're providing the best for your family.
