When you are deciding what to make your baby sleep on, and are looking to buy a Crib Mattress, you can never go overboard with anything. Your baby deserves the best, and you know it.
A good quality mattress not only allows your baby to sleep soundly and comfortably, but also makes sure that the baby gets quality sleep which ultimately affects its growth. If you are still deciding regarding how to pick the best crib mattress for your baby, you might as well know the options that you have:
- Foam mattress: These are the cheapest, and lightest. While picking a foam crib mattress, you should especially consider the foam density, which should at least be 1.5 pounds per cubic foot. This allows the crib mattress to support your child and allow a sound sleep while letting the child be free while sleeping.
- Innerspring mattress: Usually more expensive but more durable, innerspring mattresses can be chosen based on the number and quality of springs used, which should ideally be around 135 coils with a gauge lower than 15.5.
- Organic mattresses: These mattresses claim to be free from chemicals and harmful substances, and their higher costs are justified for most parents, given the apparent benefits that they are getting in form of safety for their child.
While buying a good crib mattress for your baby, make sure to check the material, size, firmness, thickness, venting and certifications. If they seem in place for you, go ahead. You do not want anything less than the best for your baby, do you?
