Best Crib Mattress to Splurge On
- Great mattress
- Impeccable quality
- Properly firm
Not only is it very pricey, but it doesn’t always fit standard-size cribs.
Forget about the price just for a second. This crib mattress is pure quality. It’s got the certifications that will put your mind at ease, from the organic materials it uses to its flammability standards. Plus, there’s the combination of foam and coil materials on the inside. Really, it’s natural, safe, and comfortable.
Now, let’s go back to the price. It’s three times more expensive than our top fave which can be difficult to swallow. And add to that the fact that some users report difficulty fitting it into standard-size cribs. That’s a blow for most folks – but there is a money-back guarantee that will help ease your fears as long as you’ve left yourself enough time before baby arrives.
What’s it made of? This is a combination of foam and spring inners. And, it’s made of 100% cotton on the inside which should ease your mind when it comes to safety. On the outside, the covering is made from food-grade polyethylene. As for the springs, the 150 coil innerspring mattress also features 13 gauge coils and a 9 gauge border wire for ultimate firmness.
What are the best features? This is as close as you will get to an organic crib mattress that really does what it says and remains comfortable for your baby. The combination of foam and spring makes this exceptionally comfortable and it features a dual firmness so it can move to the toddler bed when it’s time. Indeed, it will far outlast that time too.
Will it fit the crib? This crib mattress measures 52 x 27.8 x 6”. That should be standard, if a little on the tall side, but there are those that find it’s a little too short for their cribs. Make sure you measure or fit it before even pulling it out of the plastic. Also, be aware that this mattress is a little heavy at 20 pounds, but it won’t break your back.
How should you care for it? Wipe it down with a damp cloth. That’s all you’ll ever need to do – considering how much cleaning work goes into everything else your baby needs, this will seem like a breeze.
Are there any certifications, warranties, or awards? You get a lifetime warranty and there’s also a 30-day money-back guarantee. In addition to the GREENGUARD Select certification, it’s also GOTS-certified. In case you’re wondering, that stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and it means you can truly expect the materials to be what they claim.
Will it break the bank? It’s a big ask for many parents to spend $300 on a mattress for an infant. For many, the pros well outweigh the cons, but that doesn’t make it any cheaper – just more valuable. If you can afford it, you’ll probably want to do it.
