American farmers are responsible for the soybean oils used to create this pearl-embossed mattress. It’s stain resistant, waterproof, safe, and a winner of multiple awards.

Watch out for the compression of the edges over time.


You kind of have to fall in love with an inexpensive crib mattress made from high-density soybean foam. At least, we’ve fallen in love with it. In addition to plenty of certifications, this award-winning mattress doesn’t add extra chemicals and will hold up to 60 pounds so you can use it for years to come.

We appreciate that this crib mattress is phthalate and flammability compliant without the use of additional (and toxic) fire-retarding chemicals. We also like the circulation pocket that does its job without the extra side vents that can pose some hazards. All in, it’s difficult not to choose this mattress for your baby.

It’s highly recommended by the folks at Baby Bargains and those over at The Sleep Judge (this review will tell you everything you ever wanted to know and more).  If you’re more of visual person, you may want to check out this short YouTube video that explains the features at play.

What’s it made of? Rather than the petroleum-based mattresses that were once a norm, this one is made from soybean oils (grown in the United States, mind you). Now, to be sure, there are other elements at play here, so it’s not 100% eco-friendly, but it’s totally safe for your child. It’s a high-density foam that resists sagging and continues to provide firm support for many years.

What are the best features? Not only is this stain-resistant, it’s also waterproof. And what parent doesn’t love that? It has plenty of healthy, green certifications – including indoor air quality and low chemical emissions. Plus, the entire cover and binding are resistant to moisture which means that unhealthy little allergens aren’t going to stick to this mattress. And, the airflow pocket makes the circulation safe without those metal side vents. And then there are the square corners.

Will it fit the crib? The actual measurements are 51.6 x 27.2 x 5” so it should fit just about any standard size crib, but you should always take measurements. A little gap can make a big difference to the health and safety of your child. It weighs 8.3 pounds, which isn’t bad at all. And, it can handle weights up to 60 pounds, which means you can use it as a toddler bed too.

How should you care for it? You should be able to wipe this clean with mild soap and water. But, you can always use a baby wipe too. You won’t need an extra mattress cover. As long as you care for it regularly, it should outlast your needs.

Are there any certifications, warranties, or awards? In case you’re wondering, this is where this mattress really, really outshines the competition. The lifetime warranty (workmanship and materials) begins on the date of purchase. It’s held a Woman’s Choice Award every year since 2013 (well, all Sealy crib mattresses have the title). It’s also been voted America’s Best Brand for Baby. And, it holds both CertiPUR-US and GREENGUARD Children & Schools certifications.

Will it break the bank? You have to love that you can get all of these features for just over $100. At least, we love that. Sure, it’s not the cheapest on the market, but it’s far from the most expensive option too. We think it’s definitely a value for the money – especially if you move it to a toddler bed for the first couple of years.
