GREENGUARD Certified

Colgate’s product line of crib mattresses have been awarded the GREENGUARD Children and Schools certification for indoor air quality. The Children and Schools certification, GREENGUARD’s strict standard designed for products used in daycare, K-12, and healthcare facilities, addresses the unique sensitivities of children and other sensitive population groups. This standard places additional limits on chemicals that are known to adversely affect child development. Colgate has been manufacturing foam and innerspring crib mattresses, foam pads, and crib mattress and pad accessories in Atlanta for over half a century.

Choosing a Crib Mattress

There are a lot of choices in the crib mattress category, so choosing the right one can be intimidating. Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind as you begin your search:

  • Don’t compare the attributes of your adult mattress to your child’s crib mattress. Firmer is better when it comes to babies.
  • Your baby’s soft bones and muscles need more support than an adult’s.
  • When choosing a foam mattress, the firmer and heavier the foam - and the faster it returns to its original flat shape when weight is removed - the better.
  • The innerspring design is the most classic. The more layers and the higher quality those layers are, the better the mattress.
  • Look for quality materials in the innerspring mattress comfort layers that won’t compress over time.
  • All materials that come in contact with your baby’s skin should be safe. Look for Greenguard and CertiPUR-US seals of approval.

FAQ

What is the difference between a foam mattress and an innerspring mattress?

Innerspring mattresses are a tried-and-true industry standard and a great option. One of the biggest advantages of foam mattresses is that they usually weigh between eight and 14 pounds, as compared to an innerspring mattress which can weigh 20+ pounds. This does make a difference when changing the sheets. In the end it comes down to personal preference, and there is no wrong decision.

Do all crib mattresses come in the same size? How should the mattress fit in the crib?

The size range for all standard crib mattresses is regulated by the Federal government. The minimum crib mattress size is is 27 1/4 inches x 51 5/8 inches, and not thicker than six inches. Cribs are also regulated, but their interior dimensions have a "plus or minus" tolerance from the standard 28 inch x 52 inch rectangle. Therefore, depending on the specific crib and mattress combination, the mattress may be either very snug or moderately snug in the crib. The Consumer Product Safety Commission sets the standards for crib and crib mattress sizes and how the combination should fit.

Why are crib mattresses so hard? Will it be uncomfortable for my baby?

For infants, the crib mattress is much more than just a sleeping surface; it’s their growth and developmental center. In fact, infants will spend up to 70% of their day on a crib mattress. They need a firm, flat, even surface to maximize their development. The firm surface is particularly important both during periods of sleep and when the infant begins to become more active in the crib. They need the firm surface as they begin to push up, turn, and eventually stand in the crib. A solid base provides the resistance necessary for developing and strengthening muscles. Firmer is better.

Our little one hasn't arrived yet, so my review is of the product only, not our child's success on the mattress. ***UPDATED TWICE AT END***

That said, this is an excellent mattress. From what I know so far, I can't stress that enough. We had an old Colgate foam mattress, and decided to go ahead and get a new one, going with this Eco version.
The surface material is greatly improved. It's cloth; it's soft! I like the look and feel of it much more than the older models, but it does require a waterproof mattress pad to avoid staining, so if you don't want to have to buy a waterproof mattress pad, that might be a consideration. The only other noticeable difference is the absence of the little coin-sized side vents that were in our old mattress. I'm not sure why these have been omitted; I imagine they were either a choking hazard, or the new design just doesn't require them.

The Eco Classica seems to be at LEAST as firm as our old Colgate, probably more firm just because the old one had been used for years. It's the same lightweight design, and I couldn't be happier. We looked into getting one of the expensive organic mattresses, but decided on the Eco Classica for three reasons:

(1) Weight. As much as I'm tempted by the organic mattresses, I just do not want to have to fight with a heavy mattress in the middle of the night for sheet changes. It's simply no fun. The Colgate foam mattresses make this an absolute breeze.

(2) Reputation. Everywhere I've looked (Baby Book of Bargains, etc) has recommended the Colgate line of mattresses; they are the oldest crib mattress manufacturer around, are firm enough to be awesome SIDS protection, and just seem generally unstoppable.

As a first-time mom, trying to figure out what to buy and what brands are the most reliable is quite daunting. For crib mattresses, though, it is a bit easier. It seemed that everywhere I looked, all my resources all said the same thing...Colgate is the best brand of crib mattresses.

So I hopped on to Amazon, and noticed that, in addition to the regular Classica mattresses, they were offering the new Eco Classica. Although I am not a die-hard "everything must be organic" kind of mom, I do try to make eco-friendly choices wherever possible. Since the Eco version wasn't much more expensive, I went ahead and purchased it.

PROS:
-It is nice and firm for safety, but not uncomfortable.
-It fits the DaVinci Jenny Lind crib perfectly.
-It is light-weight, which you will appreciate when it comes time to change the sheets.
-Best of all, absolutely no chemical smell out of the box and no off-gassing time needed!

CONS:
-none

Highly recommend this product!!!

Ended up purchasing the Colgate Eco Classica III Dual Firmness Eco-Friendlier Crib Mattress, Ecru' by Colgate instead. While the Eco Classica I seemed fine (liked the cotton covering a lot), it was very firm. The Eco Classica III has the benefit of being dual-sided, for only $10 more - in addition, the firmer side seemed to be not quite as hard as the Eco Classica I.

This mattress is very light, but firm - just what you need for an infant. The shell material feels very nice to the touch and looks great too. It fits perfectly into the IKEA Leksvik crib, so there are no issues with potentially getting little fingers stuck in the gaps between the mattress and the sides of the crib.

My husband and I are very conscious of what we expose our child to, so choosing a mattress that was not going to give off toxic gases was a priority. Colgate mattresses are highly rated in Baby Bargains, so we chose the Eco version, and we are pleased with it. It fit our Bonavita crib perfectly.

The thing about having a baby, you just never know what to expect, especially for your first one. My baby is eight months old now and I waited this long on purpose to write the reviews on baby items that we ordered. This mattress is lovely. It is SO light, it makes changing the sheets a snap. It is free of fumes due to the organic manufacture, and if you think about it, they spend SO much time faceplanted in it, that I wanted my baby to not be inhaling all those fumes from the time that he was a few weeks old! It is nice and firm, and even know that he is rolling over in the middle of the night, we aren't that worried about it smothering him in any way. It is slightly more expensive that other baby mattresses, but truly has held up great, and I would buy it again ten times over. Do not hesitate to purchase this mattress.

I love love love this mattress. I was changing the sheets on my daughter's crib again the other day and thought to myself that I should share with others how great a mattress it is. I bought this mattress over a year ago for my then 3 month old. My daughter sleeps wonderfully through the entire night and takes great naps. The mattress is firm which is recommended by doctors to protect babies against SIDS. I slept better knowing this fact. As if this wasn't enough reason to try this mattress, it is very light. I am only 5'2" and now that the mattress is at its lowest level in the crib, I really appreciate that I do not have to lift out a heavy mattress to change the sheets. I really wanted a completely organic mattress but it was too expensive for my budget. This mattress was my compromise and I am very happy with it. I am so thankful that Colgate makes what is in my opinion a nearly perfect crib mattress.
