Moonlight Slumber is a company that is known for its premium quality baby products, and their Little Dreamer Mattress is no exception. A US-made product that holds Greenguard GOLD and CertiPUR-US certificates, this mattress is a perfect choice for babies with sensitive skin. It’s hypoallergenic, has a waterproof cover, and is dual-sided. The cover is soft and has seamless edges, which shows great attention to detail that was put into this sleep package. You also won’t need to worry about the mattress or the cover getting stained, as they are both stain proof, too. Moonlight Slumber’s mattress comes at a reasonable price, starting at around $200, meaning it should fit the budget of most families. It’s not sprayed with any fire retardant, but rather uses an innovative woven fire barrier. And while this mattress sports some really good features and overall great design, there are several shortcomings as well. Some Amazon users report that the mattress and the cover both smelled quite strongly like chemicals, which is weird considering their certification. The smell goes away after leaving them both to air out for a few days, but the potential that chemicals were used on them can make some think twice before buying. And, there may be some doubts as to how durable the mattress is, with some parents reporting that after a few months of usage, the mattress got sucked in the middle. That being said, taken as a whole, this is a crib mattress that is immensely practical and one which has a friendly, low price, considering all the new technology it contains.
Memory foam mattresses are all the rage nowadays, and Milliard decided to introduce it into the world of babies. Their mattress comes with many benefits and very few downsides. First of all, the mattress is CertiPUR-US certified. It contains none of the usual fire retardants, which we all know can be dangerous for your baby’s health. No heavy metals, no VOCs, which makes this mattress hypoallergenic as well. But there’s another thing this mattress excels at - its price. It costs less than $60, making it one of the most budget-friendly baby items out there! Unlike most crib mattresses, this one comes packed as a normal mattress, rolled up, and regains its shape and size as soon as you get it out of the packaging. But since all rolled up mattresses need a day or two to get to full size, we suggest ordering this one a few days earlier, so that you can have what you ordered right when you need it. Once unpacked, you might come across a mild scent or smell, but it goes away after a few days. The mattress comes with a cover which is hypoallergenic and is also water, dust mite and mildew resistant. It looks amazing and fits the mattress like a glove, although the material that it’s made of could’ve been a tad softer. We suggest using it more like a sheet and put another softer cover on top of it. What are the drawbacks? Weirdly enough, the memory foam and the size of the mattress. As you know, as the infant grows he needs the softness to adjust, and since this mattress is just 5’’ thick and isn’t double-sided, we can’t see how the infant “firmness” will be suitable for the toddler, too.
Colgate is one of the most popular brands in the world when it comes to crib mattresses - after all, they’ve been making them since 1955! Being among top crib mattresses brands for such a long time is not easy, but it all comes down to their high quality. This mattress is one from their series of eco-friendly mattresses which contains very low amounts of VOC (volatile organic compounds), all proven with their CertiPUR-US certification. A dual-sided well-constructed mattress that comes with an organic cotton cover, there is a lot we love about this mattress. The infant side is perfectly firm and is a good option for all infants who change positions while sleeping. Why? With the amazing support it gives to the back of the baby, your baby will indeed “sleep like a baby” and won’t toss and turn throughout the night. The toddler side has the right balance of firmness and softness, adapted for your baby’s needs as they grow and develop. Its urethane foam core makes it lightweight and easy to remove when you want to wash or change the cover. Squared edges, a nice thick core, affordable price, and excellent reviews from users (for both quality and durability), the Colgate Eco Classica mattress is one of the best you could find on the market. And while it’s not 100% organic, we highly recommend it for all who want to get the most organic for their buck.
The Naturepedic mattress is an all-organic mattress that comes with dual sides, and a coil core in the middle. Coils are not easy to be put into mattresses and this one has 150 of them, all evenly distributed, designed to maintain surface pressure for a long time. No more worrying about your baby sleeping uncomfortably because the mattress has sagged. Naturepedic’s mattress comes with a waterproof cover made from organic cotton, which is really easy to clean and wash. And the best part? Both the mattress and the cover are hypoallergenic and odorless. Couple that with their Greenguard and GOTS certificates, and you get not only the best surface for your baby to sleep on, but the best environment too. But are there any bad sides to this mattress? Well, first of all, the price. It’s about a bit more expensive than other products on our list. And not only it’s more expensive, but it’s also quite heavy compared to others of the same rank. Still, you definitely won’t go wrong should you decide to get this mattress for your little one, because overall it’s a top-notch crib mattress and well-worth your money.
A relatively new player in the crib mattress game, Lullaby Earth has hit the jackpot with their Healthy Support line of crib mattresses, which just skyrocketed them into fame. Their two-stage mattress is both Greenguard Certified for low VOC emissions and is 100% recyclable. Its core is not made from polyurethane or coils, but batting in the form of honeycombs, which makes the infant side perfectly firm. At 6’’, we can say that it’s thickness is more than enough and should provide comfort for your infant. Changing and cleaning the mattress is a piece of cake because it’s lightweight and the edges are the perfect angle between being too square and too round. This makes the cover slide on easily and you can get a good grip on it when turning it around or taking it out. The cons? Not many, to be honest. With usage, the edges might start to sink and suck towards the inside, but it’s nothing that cannot be solved with a good mattress pad. At 199$, it’s not cheap, but it definitely provides good value for your money.
The Newton Baby Crib mattress is a top-rated baby mattress on Amazon, but that’s not the only reason why it has found its place on our list. Made in the USA, this mattress holds a number of awards such as the JPMA Innovation Award and is also Greenguard GOLD certified. At first, it might seem a bit odd as this mattress isn’t double-sided (one for baby, one for toddler) like most, but both sides are made to be suitable for your baby to sleep on. Not too firm, not too soft, but just right. The mattress was made this way because it doesn’t contain any foam, but instead uses what they call “90% air”, which is basically an air-puffed polymer. This polymer is good because it doesn’t contain any of the harmful chemicals that are usually put into mattresses, like urethane, formaldehyde, and benzene, and it reduces the chance of any dust or allergens sticking to it. It’s comfortable, lightweight, and it fits most cribs. The Newton Baby Crib mattress also comes with a zippered cover, which is easy to remove and put on, and you can also wash it in a washing machine. There are a few downsides to this mattress though. Some claim that it has an odor when taken out of the packaging and that washing the cover in a machine can shrink it, requiring a bit of an effort to put it back on the mattress. It’s also quite pricey, starting around $300, and if you want to replace the cover after a while, it will also cost you around $80. But, overall, this is a high-quality mattress that comes with many benefits and few downsides.
