We are rounding up the best crib mattresses of 2023!
Shopping for baby clothes, nursery decor, and cool baby gear is exciting. When it comes to shopping for a crib mattress, often it takes a back seat.
However, because babies spend up to 16 hours a day sleeping on a crib mattress-it is one of your more important nursery purchases.
With so many options out there and, with most of the mattresses looking identical on the outside, how do you pick the best baby crib mattress?
Since we frequently get asked about our picks for best crib mattresses when designing baby nurseries, we reviewed many popular crib mattresses and narrowed them down.
Here are our picks for the best crib mattresses. All of these picks will provide your precious baby with a safe and healthy sleep environment.
BEST CRIB MATTRESSES 2023
1.NATUREPEDIC ORGANIC COTTON CLASSIC LIGHTWEIGHT
One of our top picks for best crib mattresses is the Naturepedic Organic Cotton Classic Lightweight mattress. It has the strength and durability of an innerspring mattress but only weighs around 10 pounds-making late-night sheet changes convenient.
The mattress has a US-grown and certified organic cotton filing. A patented Wave support technology made from pure food-grade polyethylene gives the mattress stability and firmness. It also passes all the Federal and State Flammability Standards but without any fire retardant chemicals.
With this mattress, your baby will sleep in a safe and healthy environment without exposure to chemicals. The entire crib mattress is certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Did we also mention that it comes with a lifetime warranty?
2.NATUREPEDIC NO COMPROMISE classic 150 coil
Yet another great crib mattress from Naturepedic! This Naturepedic No Compromise Organic Cotton Classic 150 crib mattress weighs around 20 pounds and has a heavy-duty 150 coil innerspring that gives it firmness. The layers around the innerspring consist of US-grown and organic-certified cotton. This mattress also features seamless waterproof edging that prevents moisture penetration.
The mattress has everything we look for when choosing a good crib mattress. It has a firmer infant side, softer toddler side, fits snugly in the crib and has been tested for chemical emissions, certified to the GREENGUARD® GOLD standard and has a lifetime limited warranty.
This Newtons Crib Mattress is also on our list of best crib mattresses. We love the breathability of this mattress. The core is made from 90% free air. The innovative Breathe-Thru Technology allows air to flow freely, and is proven to reduce the risk of suffocation and CO2 re-breathing, even when your baby starts to roll over at night.
4.Moonlight Slumber Dual Sided Baby Crib Mattress
This Moonlight Slumber Dual-Sided mattress is one of the best crib mattresses in 2023. It has dual firmness feature-meaning extra firm plant oil foam on the infant side and a super comfortable layer on the other side for babies nine months and older. The entire 5" deep mattress is wrapped in a woven fire barrier (no harsh chemical sprays) and enclosed in a medical quality, water-stain- and odor-resistant deluxe fabric.
The Moonlight Slumber Starlight mattress is made in the US from eco-friendly products, does not contain any harsh chemicals and will provide your baby with a safe and comfortable sleep environment.
