Different types of crib mattressesFinding the right crib mattress is as important as choosing the safest crib for your child. After all, your baby will sleep in the crib without your watchful eye. Because of this, it is very important for the parents to pick the right crib mattress.

Natural and organic crib mattresses

When you browse online or at a store, you may find it overwhelming to see hundreds of mattress choices. Don’t be lured with the low discounted price on many of those cheap quality crib mattresses. Most of those crib mattresses don’t use the natural and organic materials. While looking for a crib mattress for your little one, check the ones made from 100 percent natural and organic materials. Choices include coir mattresses, bamboo cotton mattress, and firm organic Dunlop latex crib mattress. Organic materials offer a more breathable and natural sleeping environment for your child. Many foam and spring mattresses are less expensive and may better fit your budget, but the more natural is overall a lot nicer.

Buy new:

Choosing a new crib mattress is necessary for sanitary reasons. An old mattress can be a potential hazard to your child if it was poorly maintained. Diaper leakage and spit-ups on the mattress can lead to bacteria infestation and mold growth too. If you buy a new one, you don’t have to worry about all these factors.

Go for the right fit:

While choosing a new crib mattress for your child, go for the 27 ¼ inches size. Also, make sure that the mattress you choose doesn’t have more than 6 inches of thickness. To check the fit, put the mattress inside the displayed sample crib before making a decision to purchase it. Choosing the correct fit mattress will ensure your child’s safety in the crib as well.

Buy a cover:

It is advised to use a washable and waterproof mattress cover to keep your baby’s crib mattress protected. A good cover also protects the crib mattress from dirt, accidental spillage and diaper leakage
