What's Inside a Crib Mattress ?

Baby on Crib Mattress
A baby mattress is known as a "blind" item, since most of the important components are hidden inside.

I was not well informed, when I was shopping for a baby mattress for my first baby. Now, I realize how my lack of knowledge could have harmed my precious baby Samantha. I did not know how crucial it is to purchase a quality baby mattress.

NOW I Know! (After many months of Research)

Immediately after gaining some insight, I threw out Samantha's soft mattress and purchased - the right one!

Keep in mind that your newborn baby will spend up to 70% of her time on the mattress. Once your baby becomes a toddler she will still spend at least 50% of her time on the mattress.

Your precious baby will also use the mattress as a playpen until she falls asleep and when she wakes before you do. That’s another reason why the mattress you choose should be very durable.

"Beware Of The Crib Mattress Sales Pitch!"

I’ve learned the hard way that many sales associates are trained to sell you the most expensive mattress once you choose your crib. I ended up listening to the sales guy and bought Samantha one of the more expensive mattresses. I thought it would be the safest just by looking at the price.

Later, I found out Samantha's mattress was treated with harmful chemicals and fire retardants. After that experience I was determined to become informed and help other parents choose the safest mattress for their priceless babies.One of the most important things I can tell you is do not settle for a cheap crib mattress. There are lots of cheap and low quality baby mattresses out there. My goal is to help you figure out which ones to consider and which ones to absolutely avoid.

The information provided throughout this site will help you decide whether a certified organic crib mattress, foam, or innerspring is right for your baby and your budget.

Good Luck!
