If you had a nickel for every minute you spent obsessing over the tiniest details of your nursery, you’d probably be rich by the time your new baby spent her first night in the crib you so agonizingly selected. But, as important as your theme or décor may seem, something you rarely think about – and probably perceive as wildly unexciting – is actually one of the most important items to think very carefully about: the mattress upon which your little prince or princess is going to dream away up to 18 hours of every day. That makes buying the best new mattress you can afford a very high priority.
What to Look for in a Quality Crib Mattress
There are several important features you should consider when shopping for the most critical piece of infant bedding. Print and bring this list with you to your nearest USA Baby, and their nursery experts will help you find the perfect mattress for your needs. Some of the most important features include:
Five High Quality Mattresses to Consider
With the thousands of crib mattresses on the market today, how do you know where to even begin looking? Start by asking the experts. USA Baby carries only the safest, top-quality crib mattresses, and they highly recommend the following five brands and models:
The Colgate Classica I – As the mostrecognized and popular foam crib mattress in America, the Classica I extra-firm mattress was rated #1 by the nation’s leading consumer products magazines, and has been recommended for over 14 years by other popular baby publications. Medical experts agree that the foam used in crib mattresses should be high quality, extra firm, lightweight, orthopedic, and waterproof – all descriptive of the Classica I. Features include a triple layer nylon reinforced vinyl cover, hypoallergenic foam, a cloth binding for strong seams, and eyelet vents. The Classica I passes all federal flammability standards, as well as CPSIA safety standards, and fits all standard cribs.
The Colgate Classica III – This lightweight, high quality, dual firmness, infant/toddler, foam crib mattress features a tear-resistant, waterproof, triple-layer, nylon reinforced vinyl cover; hypoallergenic foam; cloth binding; and eyelet vents. Its orthopedic style fits all standard size cribs and toddler beds. Dual-sided firmness offers extra support for infants on one side, and greater comfort for toddlers on the other side. The mattress passes all federal flammability standards, as well as CPSIA safety standards.
The Kolcraft Omni-Pedic Staph Check – Developed exclusively for USA Baby, this mattress offers square corners for the tightest fit. It’s also designed as a two-stage mattress: one side for your newborn and the other side for your more active, growing toddler. The cover is protected with a staph guard treatment that prevents mold, mildew, and bacteria from growing. This coiled innerspring mattress comes with a lifetime manufacture’s warranty.
The Sopora Ultimate – All the smartest features come standard with this 6″ deep, all-foam mattress with dual sleep sides. The Sopora is engineered to withstand wear and tear and provide ergonomic support for the life of your child’s time in the crib. As your child grows, their sleep surface needs change. For infants, use the ultra-firm, high-density side; then flip the mattress to the memory foam side for your toddler. This second side provides a layer of foam with faster bounce-back – produced by maximum airflow. Better airflow prevents heat retention and provides a more consistent sleep temperature. The Sopora also offers safe side seams that keep wetness out and creates a seamless waterproof edge. This prevents allergens, bed bugs, and fluids from seeping into the mattress. The medical grade, stretch-knit mattress cover is compliant with all current safety standards; is free of vinyl, PVC, and phthalate; and treated with antimicrobial protection. It cleans easily with a damp sponge and won’t retain unpleasant odors or stains. Lastly, the Sopora’s square corners and edges fit tightly into the crib and hold sheets securely to keep your baby safe.
The No-Compromise™ Organic Cotton Lightweight - This mattress matches the strength and durability of an innerspring mattress without the added weight. Layers of luxurious organic cotton batting create the perfect balance of firmness and comfort. Get the best of both worlds; firm and durable for baby, easy crib changing for parents.
