Crib mattress is very important for your baby’s sleep and growth. Parent must be very careful when choosing baby mattress. In addition to the price budget, we must also consider the material, comfort and service life of the mattress. A good Crib mattress will give your baby a good night’s sleep and will also help your baby’s bones develop.

How can I choose the best baby mattress?

In order to choose the best baby mattress for your baby, I have five tips for you. If you having question on kids bedding choosing just take a look: How to choosing bedding for kids?

This Graco Premium Foam Crib and Toddler Bed Mattress is made from breathable foam that maximizes air flow for your child and will help them get the rest that they need. It also features a water-resistant lining to help keep your baby cozy, clean and dry

Pay attention to the elasticity of the mattress.

If the mattress is not elastic, it will be difficult for the baby to change posture when sleeping. Therefore, it is recommended to press the center of the mattress by hand before purchase, and the elasticity can be recovered quickly.

What’s mattress elasticity?

The elasticity of a mattress is measured by the rebound height of a steel ball dropped from a specific height onto the mattress. This elasticity is measured as a percentage of the rebound height compared to the original drop height. The higher the number, the more elastic the mattress

Firm or soft mattress

Choosing a comfortable mattress for your child is very important to them. Children’s requirements for mattresses vary with age. I have listed below the stages that are suitable for various mattresses. Just like kids suitable for soft mattresses, elderly are more suitable for harder mattresses. 

  • Soft beds – these are appropriate for ILD of less than 25 lbs.
  • Medium – consider these for ILD between 25 to 31 lbs.
  • Firm – these are appropriate for ILD of more than 31 lbs.

Note the width of the gap around the mattress and crib

A suitable baby mattress should have no wide gaps between the baby bed and the crib. Because kids are not particularly sensible, sometimes they will inadvertently put their hands or feet into the gap. And accidents often happen. The hands and feet are stuck in the gap and cannot be pulled out.

Generally speaking, the gap between the mattress and the crib cannot be larger than the width of two fingers, otherwise there is a safety hazard.

Why do you choose 
My First Crib Mattress?

  • Baby crib mattress is constructed of premium CertiPUR-US certified flexible polyurethane foam
  • Baby mattress meets and exceeds federal flammability and CPSC standards
  • Hypoallergenic crib mattress is mite-proof, anti-microbial, phthalate and lead free
  • Fits all standard cribs

Crib mattress pad can be purchased

Addition tip: While buying a crib mattress, mothers can also consider buying a crib mattress pad. In general, the price of crib mattress is relatively expensive. It’s not convenient to clean, so the crib pad mentioned here is equivalent to a layer of “protective clothing” of the crib mattress, and can also add softness to the crib mattress.
