A baby crib toddler mattress helps a child sleep cozy but also helps promote growth and ensures safety too. Toddlers and babies spend over half of their first five years of life in a sleeping environment of some sort. Newborn babies tend to sleep an average of 16 hours per day, and children aged 3-5 years sleep an average of 11-13 hours. Because of this alone it is obvious that their surroundings and bedding should be next to none.
There is an abundance of toddler mattress brands and products available in the marketplace but choosing the correct one can be pretty daunting. That’s why we shortlisted the top rated for you and have chosen. See below for buying guide and information, plus our top five reviews and summary of the best crib mattress for the baby.
Toddler Mattress – Sealy Soybean Foam-Core
When you haven’t heard of Sealy, their mats and mattresses were voted America’s Best for Baby winning the Women’s Choice Award in 2013 and 2014. This Soybean version is an award-winning addition to their portfolio. Although it’s not double sided like others from the toddler mattress reviews here, it offers a sleeping surface that is firm yet comfortable for kids by way of a high-density core with cotton cushioning for balance. The pearl embossed cover is stain-resistant and 100% waterproof. The foam centre that is hypoallergenic is CertiPUR-US® certified made with soybean oils that are the more healthy choice to petroleum-based alternatives. It features a cornered design for security and quality of fit; it moves ASTM standards clean and is GREENGUARD Gold certified. The Soybean Foam-Core crib mattress is a legitimate selection and gets a thumbs up from us.
Toddler Mattress – Moonlight Slumber Little Dreamer
This 5″ full beauty is one of the best rated in our top 5 reviews. The CertiPUR-US® model that is certified doesn’t have any vinyl, polyethene, PVC, phthalates, and lead. It’s a double sided mattress that will last from days well into toddler years because of an excess firm infant side, and a company that is lesser toddler side when flipped over. It has dropped side-stitched seams, is hypoallergenic, waterproof and weighs a mere 10.5 pounds. Some of our owners of the baby mattress say so there are no worries about unsafe gaps, the square and cornered edges of this model provide an excellent snug fit. You do get the quality and security you pay for with this one, although this is not a crib mattress that is affordable.
Toddler Mattress – Colgate Eco Classica III
The Atlanta based team have been focusing on the baby bed mattress area for more than a century, so it’s no wonder their product looks in our top 5 contrast. The Eco Classica iii is a GREENGUARD certified orthopaedic style. The firmness offers firm support for infants on one side, and if flipped over has a milder firm comfort layer for toddlers. The CertiPUR-US® certified core is plant based which means the petroleum-based oils are substituted by the more healthy plant oils for harmful air emissions and no nasty odours that are off-gassing. At a lightweight 9.3 lbs, it is wrapped in a certified organic cotton cover with a waterproof backing, which puts healthy cloth closest to infant and the waterproof backing lets nothing seep in. This is an all-around healthy option for parents keen to keep their child.
