Choosing a Baby Crib Mattress

A Mattress for Your Little One’s Crib

If you’re considering a mattress for your little one’s crib, you should talk to someone who works with mattresses for a living. Green Dream Beds offers simply designed beds from manufacturers committed to organic sleep solutions, like Savvy Rest ® and Naturpedic ®. Green Dream Beds is committed to delivering baby mattresses which are free of petrochemicals, fire retardants, anti-microbial or anti-fungal agents, glues, resins or toxic outgassing.

Let’s look at some other considerations for your choice in your baby’s mattress.

Baby’s Needs:

When you bring your little bundle of joy home from the hospital, you’ll know whether your baby has any special needs for his or her crib. Talk to your doctor about whether you can meet those needs in baby’s first crib and mattress and use those recommendations in your search.


You can’t exceed the size of the crib! Make sure you get an inside measurement of the crib before going shopping for baby’s mattress

Manufacturing Style:

Do you have a preference for foam, or an innerspring? What degree of firmness do you want for baby? You may have experience from your previous children, or a recommendation from family, friends or your pediatrician.


You’re going to have to make choices on the inside & outside of the mattress. Do you want natural materials like wood, latex, cotton or wool or do you want to pick synthetic materials? Does what goes inside the mattress matter to you, or are you just concerned the part of the mattress that will come in contact with baby? Ask questions about whether the mattress keeps or conducts hea or moisture and how easy it is to clean. No matter how careful you are, you’re going to do some cleaning in the crib!
