The following mattress guide will help you understand the difference between latex, soybean, organic cotton, and foam or innerspring crib mattresses so you can find the best crib mattress for your baby. 

Should I purchase an innerspring or foam crib mattress?

Both are good options and it’s a personal choice.

  • Some parents prefer an innerspring mattress because innersprings are made from steel therefore very durable and long-lasting.

What kind of organic crib mattresses are there?

Currently a 100% organic mattress does not exist. There are organic elements, such as organic cotton fill, organic cotton covers or organic cotton mattress pads.
