KOKOPAX TOP PICK

Getting your baby to fall asleep can be hard enough, but it can be even more difficult if they’re lying on an uncomfortable mattress. And how are you supposed to know? Can you crawl into the crib yourself? Check it out? Roll over a few times?

We tried that here during our research, but it turns out that our writers at Kokopax are as much regular-sized human beings as you are, and so we struggled as well. Instead, we researched for over 20 hours, talking to new parents and getting information from manufacturers about which baby mattresses were the most comfortable, affordable and helpful in putting babies to sleep. So you can read our article and not have to break your crib (or your back) trying out mattresses not made for you anyway, and hopefully we can help you find the perfect fit for your little one.

After all of our research, we think that the Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams White Crib Mattress is the best mattress on the market right now. It is firm yet comfortable, safe for your baby, waterproof and worth its value.

But we also found a few other mattresses that we really liked. If you need try out a few (or just look at a few reviews), we have you covered.

Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams White Crib Mattress

Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams White Crib Mattress ReviewThis baby mattress is one that you can trust. Not only has it been highly recommended by our parents, but it comes as one of the top selling baby mattresses on the market, proving that it is worth every penny you’ll put into it. It’s made to be comfortable, supportive and safe. It has everything you’d want in a mattress for your little one. If you want a product that you can expect to last a long time, be worth the value and hopefully keep your little one sleeping through the night (good luck with that one! Let’s just say as much as he can sleep…), then this is a great choice to add to your nursery.

This mattress is firm and supportive yet still made from a foam material that will keep your little one feeling like he isn’t lying on the ground. It is great for him to sleep on but also crawl around his crib, sit up, look at his toys and relax, giving you the peace of mind you need to leave him in the crib for a while when you are off taking care of other things.

The Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress is a hypoallergenic product. If you’re worried about any chemicals or harsh material that could bother your baby while he sleeps, then you don’t have to fret. This mattress is made to be safe and to keep your baby as free from allergens as possible. It comes with a vinyl cover that is waterproof and easy to wipe clean.

If your baby makes a mess at night (and we at Kokopax know that babies make messes all the time), then this mattress is great because it will be easy to clean up after the mess. No matter how big.

Not only that, but the The Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress is made with a high-density thermo-bonded fiber core that provides firm support. Babies do not need a mattress that they can fall into like some adults do. They need something that will support them as they are still pretty unable to support themselves.

Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams White Crib Mattress

This mattress is firm and supportive yet still made from a foam material that will keep your little one feeling like he isn’t lying on the ground.

This mattress provides that and more, and you can trust that it will be there to help your baby lie comfortably without feeling like he is sinking into a mattress, and you can also trust that it will be soft enough for him when he is old enough to sit and support his own body weight.

One of our parents really likes this mattress for his baby. He told us all about it,

“My wife and I bought the The Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress for our daughter before we even brought her home from the hospital. We looked all over the internet for recommendations, and it seemed that this was the best product on the market. I have never slept on the mattress myself, but it is soft enough to the touch, and my daughter seems very comfortable while sleeping on it. The best part about it is the waterproof cover. Just like all babies, she has accidents in her crib, and it is a breeze to clean up the mattress. I just pull the sheets off and wipe it clean. I don’t have to worry about airing it out to dry or putting it in any special wash. She never has to wait long before she can go right back into her crib.”

This product is so well made and used so often that it is trusted not only in homes, but also in schools and for use in daycares. It has gone through rigorous testing to prove that it does not have any harmful chemicals and is proven to be safe for use in environments like schools and healthcare units. In going through all of these testings, this mattress has been awarded The GREENGUARD GOLD (trademark of some kind) certification of standards.

So many homes, schools and even hospitals trust this mattress with their little ones. If you are concerned about the quality of this product, you can be comfortable knowing that it has such a high standard that it is used all over, and so many people have been pleased with it.

Not only is this product safe and comfortable, but it is also durable. It is made to be lightweight so that you can easily transport it and use it in any crib, and also it will last throughout your little one’s development.

If you only want to buy one mattress for your baby to use as she grows into a toddler (and why wouldn’t you?), then this is a great one for you to purchase.

Moms’ Review: Very durable! Lasts longer than the baby needs, so can be used for another baby or donated to a friend/school/hospital

Parents all around have found that the Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress is a great and durable product that they have been able to use for the entire time their child needed to sleep in a crib. They found that even after their little one grew into a not-so-little one, and they upgraded to a big-kid bed, the mattress was still in great shape.

Because of this and the Greenguard Gold certification, you could donate your mattress to a friend, to a school, to a daycare or even a hospital unit. If you’re planning on having another baby soon, then you could even keep the mattress for yourself and not have to worry about purchasing another one.

The Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress is free of phthalates and lead. It is as safe as can possibly be, and that helps with the durability. It is a great mattress to add to any crib.

If you want to join the throngs of families around the globe using this mattress, then you will be just as pleased as they are with the methods taken to make this mattress stand out above the rest.

Another one of our parents was very pleased with her Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress. She said,

“We got this mattress for my son, and he has just grown into a bigger bed where he doesn’t need it any more. Instead, I’ve sent the mattress out to my cousin who is expecting her first baby. We were sold on all of the safety measures and pleased that this is a mattress that they even would use in a hospital. But what we liked best about it while we were using it was how comfortable our son was when sleeping on it, how well it supported him and how easy it was to clean up after him. He puked, peed and everything you could imagine on it, but we were able to easily clean it up leaving nothing behind. This made us feel very comfortable passing it on! Great mattress. If we ever have another baby, then we will buy another of the same kind. Or just ask for our original one back.”

A few parents had some questions about this product

Is this mattress good for newborn infants?:

Yes, it is firm enough to support an infant yet comfortable enough for them to sleep.

Is the mattress waterproof or just the cover?

Only the vinyl cover is waterproof, but it encloses the mattress completely and securly. As long as it is put on properly put on, then it will keep the mattress free from any liquids.

Is this a foam mattress or are there springs?

There are no springs, but the foam is nice and firm.

Do twin sheets fit this product?

No, you will have to buy crib-sized sheets to fit. Twin sheets are too big.

Some parents did have a few concerns with the mattress. A few parents noticed that if the cover is not put on properly, then mold can grow between the cover and the product itself. If you are not extra careful with how you put on your covers, then you can end up with a moldy mattress and ultimately result in a sick baby. We understand that sometimes this extra step is a pain, and if you are looking for an easier product to take care of, then we recommend one that does not come with a cover but is waterproof on its own.

A few other parents thought that their mattress came a bit too short to fit their cribs. Before your purchase this product, you should make sure that you have a standard-sized crib. If you do, then go ahead with your purchase. If you bought a crib that is slightly bigger than 52.5 inches long, then you will need a mattress that fits it properly.

Despite these reviews, we think the Safety First Heavenly Dreams Mattress is a top product. We think that your little one would be able to sleep soundly and safely on it for as long as she fits in her crib, and after that, you can continue to use it or share it with someone close to you. You can rest as easy as possible as your baby does on this mattress. But she’s a baby, so that still might not be as much as you hope. Good luck!

My First Premium Memory Foam Baby Crib Mattress

My First Premium Memory Foam Baby Crib Mattress Review
Even as adults, we know that memory foam is a super comfortable and great material to sleep on. It is firm enough to keep your body in a great position while soft enough to be comfortable and whisk you off to sleep. So if it’s good enough for you, it should be good enough for your little one too! My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress is all of that and more. If you want a comfortable and very safe mattress for your baby, then this is a great choice.

This product is perfect for any standard-sized crib, and will help your little one fall asleep as quickly as possible. It has met and exceeded federal flammability and CPSC standards. If you’re worried about your little one’s mattress catching fire at any point (are you?), then you don’t have to worry. This company has put safety first.

The My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress is soft, comfortable and easy to clean. One of the biggest difficulties for parents when raising a newborn is keeping everything clean. We at Kokopax know that it is an almost impossible task to keep your baby and all of his things clean, but it is always nice to have a product that is there to help you. This mattress comes with a removable outer cover that is waterproof and washable. You can either wipe it down or throw it in the washing machine. Both of these ways will work for you, and then you can get your little one back to sleep as quickly as possible.

This mattress is made of CertiPUR-US certified, flexible polyurethane foam. And while that might sound like a mouthful, it is absolutely safe, clean and above all else, comfortable. It is a memory foam that will mold to your little one’s body to keep him in a safe and stable position while he sleeps. It is firm enough to support him throughout the entire night and even throughout his entire time sleeping in the crib. It is soft enough to keep him asleep. Memory foam on this mattress is just as desirable for your baby as it would be on a mattress for you, only this one is slightly more supportive to help with his development. If are looking for a product that will keep your baby in the best sleeping position possible, then this is a great choice for you to put in his crib.

My First Premium Memory Foam Baby Crib Mattress

This product is perfect for any standard-sized crib, and will help your little one fall asleep as quickly as possible.

We had a mom tell us just how much she felt at ease with this crib in her son’s bed,

“We bought this crib mattress for our son, and he always seemed to fall right asleep whenever we would put him on it. Now, that’s not to say he never woke up through the night, but I know that he preferred sleeping in his crib to sleeping in our bed or on the floor. It was simply a mattress that was made to support a baby, and he felt safe and comfortable there. Also, we were very pleased with the mattress being as safe as it is. And most importantly, it was easy to clean. We could not have asked for a better product to put our son to sleep on. I am very happy with purchasing the My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress, and I would buy another one if I needed it.”

The My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress is not only snuggly and supportive for your baby, but it is also hypoallergenic to reduce any irritation your baby might have while trying to sleep. It is mite-proof, anti-microbial, phthalate and lead-free as well. While your baby rests, sleeps or plays on this mattress, you can be secure in knowing that there is nothing that could be irritating his skin or causing him to be sick.

This product was made to be as safe as possible in all areas, and you can go around your house leaving your baby in his crib with no worry. If you want a safe mattress, then this could be a great addition to your baby purchases.

This mattress comes so safe that the Kittrich Corporation (which makes the product) has guaranteed that it is made without: ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP and TCEP (Tris) flame retardants, mercury, lead, other heavy metals, or formaldehyde. It was also created with low VOC emissions for indoor air quality.

This product has the CertiPUR-US certification, which means that it has been testing repeatedly to be safe for your baby, your home and the environment.

  • Product Details:
  • The My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress
  • Material: CertiPUR-US Certified flexible polyurethane foam
  • Size: 51.625 x 27.25 x 5 inches
  • Weight: 11.3 pounds
  • Waterproof: Yes
  • Certifications: CertiPUR- US
  • Moms’ Review: Very durable! Very firm and has baby’s development in mind

The My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress is designed to help your baby grow and develop safely. It may feel uncomfortably firm to you when you touch it, but that is necessary in the growth of a baby. It helps with his growing bones as well as reduces any choking hazards. A good, firm foam mattress also helps reduce any the of SIDS.

Your baby will get a much better night’s sleep on a firm foam mattress than on a soft one. If you are considering letting your baby sleep in your bed with you, then you might want to reconsider especially if you have a soft mattress.

This product is specifically made for your baby. And you can still have your baby in the room next to you (However, if you ARE set on co-sleeping with your infant, then go right ahead and skip this entire article. You won’t need an extra mattress for that).

This product is also designed to fit most cribs and can be used for a long time. It has a 10-year warranty, so if at any time the mattress isn’t what you want it to be, you can always contact the manufacturer and replace it.

This is great for your peace of mind, if you are worried about spending money on a mattress that you are unsure of how it will turn out, then you can be happy knowing that there is always the option to get your money back. However, we think it is worth the value and you’ll be very pleased.

Another of our parents used this mattress for her son, and she had no problems with it. She said,

“My husband and I were a bit concerned about how firm the foam was on this mattress, but we read up on how much safer it was for our baby, and we were sold on it from that moment on. We only want the absolute best for our son, and we feel that we got that with the My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress. We also were happy that even though the cover is waterproof, it is not vinyl on the outside. Instead it is a nice plush that is soft on our baby’s skin. This makes it slightly harder to wash than a simple vinyl cover where you can just wipe it clean, but it is still very simple. We can still hand wash the smaller messes and just throw it into the washing machine if it is a really nasty one. We have been very happy with this product, and we wouldn’t choose any other.”

How much weight can this mattress support?

Easily 50 pounds (perhaps a bit more if you’re slightly over)

Can this mattress be used for a toddler bed?

Yes, it can support the weight of a toddler, and if your toddler bed is the same size as your crib then it will easily convert.

What is the company that makes this product?

It is made by Kittrich Corporation. “My First” is the brand name.

Is it noisy when the baby moves?

Not at all. The cover on the mattress is soft and does not crinkle or make noises as your baby moves around.

Some parents did have some drawbacks concerning the My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress. They found that when opened, it had a strange smell to it, and they really did not like this. The Kittrich Corporation does give a recommendation to leave the mattress out in the open for up to 72 hours with a fan or windows blowing to get rid of any odor.

It is normal for memory foam to have a strange “new car” type smell to it, but it will eventually fade. However, if you or your baby are overly sensitive to these types of odors, then this mattress may not be the best fit for your home.

Some parents also noticed that there are a few versions of the mattress, and the newer ones do have a cover that unzips all the way around.

This makes it a little bit more difficult to get the cover off to clean when your little one makes a mess on it.

Though some parents were unhappy with this product, most seemed to love the My First Premium Memory Foam Mattress, and would recommend it to any other new parent.

We agree, and think that it is a great product that will last you and your baby for as long as you need it to. It is safe, supportive and will give him a great night’s sleep!

Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress

Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress ReviewCute, comfortable, affordable and safe are the top things we found that new parents are looking for in their baby mattresses, and this one does not disappoint. It is a great product that is guaranteed to keep its value with high-density construction that ensures that it won’t lose its shape or feel throughout the time your baby sleeps on it.

It is also made of the safest materials, and it comes cute and polka-dotted. With all of this in mind, we think that it is definitely worth what you’ll put into it, and you’ll find it a great addition to your baby’s bed.

This crib mattress is made from CertiPUR-US certified foam and is made to fit a standard-sized crib. It will last you for years (if you need it to), has no uncomfortable springs and has waterproof top and sides to keep mold and fungus from growing inside of where your little one sleeps.

It is a great product that is comfortable enough for your baby to spend a good amount of time sleeping, playing with toys, watching TV or his environment around him or just resting.

The Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress is one of the softest on the market, while still taking into consideration that infants need to have a more firm mattress than adults. It is safe enough to prevent your baby from sinking into it, and this, more than anything helps prevent SIDS and other growth disabilities that could arise.

However, it has a very plush and comfortable material that will mimic (as safely as possible) an adult mattress. If your baby has been co-sleeping, and you are hoping to put her in her own crib, then this is a great transition mattress. It uses a unique blend of foam to create comfort and safety in one product.

Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress

Not only is it great for your baby to sleep on, but the encasement has both waterproof top and sides, which allows for easy clean up when your baby makes any messes.

Not only is it great for your baby to sleep on, but the encasement has both waterproof top and sides, which allows for easy clean up when your baby makes any messes.

By leaving the bottom of the cover without waterproofing, the Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress allows for air and heat to ventilate out. This prevents mold or any mildew buildup where your baby sleeps. The mattress cover is also made from anti-flame materials with no harmful chemicals for your baby.

We had a new dad tell us that he bought the mattress and was very pleased with it.

“We bought this mattress for my daughter, and we were very happy with how well she slept on it. It was soft enough for her, and we were also happy to read that it was firm enough to prevent any potential problems. We have been trying to get her to give up co-sleeping with us, but every time we put her in a crib, she was uncomfortable. However, we bought this mattress, and it really helped us out a lot. I think she felt very safe and cozy in there, so she took to it quite well. Fortunately, we were able to give our other mattress to a friend so it didn’t go to waste. We found it to be very easy to clean and it stayed free from mold and never had any strange smells. We were very happy with it.”

The Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress is a great choice for any parent who has a baby who has been used to sleeping with Mom and Dad, but it is also great for any parent with a baby in a crib.

This product is specifically designed to regulate temperature so your little one can be as comfortable as possible while sleeping through the night.

If you worry that your baby may overheat while sleeping, then this might be a great choice for her crib. It is ventilated for maximum airflow through the mattress to make her as comfortable as possible.

The mattress encasement is also a great addition to this product. It is cute to look at, but best of all is non-porous. This keeps out any kind of unwanted allergen from entering your baby’s mattress. If your baby is easily irritated by dust, mites, bacteria, mold or anything else, then she will be comfortable on sleeping on this product without you having to worry about her sleeping and having any trouble with allergies.

Even if your baby is not particularly irritated by these things, you still don’t want them in her bed, so it’s a great choice no matter what.

  • Product details: (Chart)
  • Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress
  • Material: CertiPUR-US Certified foam
  • Size: 52 x 27.25 x 5.5 inches
  • Weight: 10.7 pounds
  • Waterproof: Yes on the top and sides. Bottom of mattress is not waterproof
  • Certifications: CertiPUR- US
  • Moms’ Review: Very durable! Comfortable and cuddly, but will keep its shape!

Apart from being soft and cuddly, this product is also very durable and will last a long time. If you want a mattress that you can easily convert to a toddler bed, then this one last through your baby’s development into her toddler years.

It is soft enough that as she gets older, she can continue to use it. It is slightly thicker than most infant and baby crib mattresses, which means that it will be a little bit more comfortable for her as she gets older.

On top of all of these things, this mattress has the added feature of being cute. It is a nice grey and white polka dotted style that looks really nice (even if you do have to cover it with a sheet). For some parents, this is really important (and we think so too!).

Fashion is a great thing to focus on, and if you really are into style and looks, then this might be a great product to put in your baby’s room. It will look nice even when you’re changing the sheets on the bed, and it can match any color scheme that you’ve chosen for your nursery.

Another of the parents we interviewed loved using this mattress for her little one. She said,

“I love this mattress. I bought the Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress for my son, and it stood out to me first because we used a grey and blue color scheme for his room, and I thought it would be nice to have something that matched. It is very soft and thick, but it still supports him and doesn’t allow him to sink too far into it. I don’t worry about him suffocating while I leave him in his crib to sleep or rest, and I am happy knowing that this mattress is soft enough to last. We are about to transform his crib into a toddler bed, and we will be keeping the same mattress hopefully for a few years. He really sleeps well in there, and I am happy to have him use it for as long as he is comfortable or at least until he outgrows it!”

Some questions parents had: (Chart or Box)

Is this an infant mattress?

Yes, though it is soft, it is not too soft that an infant cannot sleep on it.

Is there any odor?

When you first unroll it and let it get its shape, there will be an odor, but it should fade drastically in a few days and be completely gone in a few weeks.

Are the corners squared or rounded?

They are squared.

Is the waterproofing vinyl?

No, it is a thick canvas-type material.

Some parents did have a few concerns about the mattress after they used it. Some parents did think that the mattress was too soft for their little one. Through their personal preference, they simply felt better with a firmer product for such a young infant. If you are a parent who does not want a soft mattress for any reason with your baby, then you should think twice about purchasing this one, or wait a few months until you feel more comfortable with the softer material.

A few other parents noticed that the product had too strong of a smell. All foam mattresses will have an odor when first opened, and they will require being aired out before they can be used. If you are overly sensitive to these smells, then it might be better to go with a traditional spring mattress or one that has less foam to keep the smell away from your home.

However, we think this product is great, and we would highly recommend the Milliard Hypoallergenic Baby Crib Mattress for its comfort, durability, safety and attractive style. We think you would love having this in your nursery, and your little one would love to sleep on it!
