Kolcraft and Sealy Crib Mattress – Simply the Best Choice for Your Sleeping Baby

Kolcraft is proud to be the #1 crib mattress manufacturer in the USA since 1946. From our engineers in Chicago to our workers in North Carolina, we have proudly manufactured crib mattresses for generations of families. We are always seeking ways to give baby a safer, more peaceful night of sleep. Our latest exciting news is that our entire family of crib mattress brands is now  GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified, helping consumers minimize their chemical exposure and create healthier indoor environments for their children.

What does that mean for your sleeping baby and your peace of mind? It means that all Kolcraft, Sealy, Stearns & Foster and Contours brand crib mattresses have demonstrated compliance with the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s stringent chemical emissions standards following rigorous scientific testing. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, part of the UL Global Network, is a not-for-profit, third-party organization dedicated to protecting human health and improving indoor air quality by certifying products for low chemical emissions.

Our president was beaming with pride over this accomplishment.

“We are proud of our history of producing superior-quality crib mattresses for families. Ensuring that each and every mattress is GREENGUARD Certified signifies that we are committed to ensuring a healthier indoor environment for children,” said Tom Koltun, President of Kolcraft. “It will also help provide peace of mind for parents who can feel confident that their children are sleeping on a laboratory tested, healthier, high-quality crib mattress.”

Parents are inundated with safety information about children’s products today, and since infants spend so much of their early life sleeping on a crib mattress, GREENGUARD Certification is one way parents can be sure that they are making the right choice.

”We applaud Kolcraft for going above and beyond marketplace requirements and demonstrating not only leadership, but also a true commitment to reducing chemical exposure in the home,” says Henning Bloech, GREENGUARD’s executive director. “GREENGUARD Certification is a rigorous, third-party process, so by choosing GREENGUARD Certified crib mattresses, parents can be confident that they’re making a better purchasing decision for their children.”

We are just a wee bit excited over this great news. It is one more reason why Kolcraft is simply the best choice for your sleeping baby or toddler.

    I purchased a Kolcraft Baby Sit & Step for my daughter. I have had it for a couple months. My problem is that the purple flower is falling off. I am upset because it wasn’t cheap. I believe this a Manufacturer Defect. My daughter is 7 months and just started to use it. Can this piece be replaced with out me having to purchase another Sit & Step?
    I can be reached at (802)394-0027.
    Sincerely,

    Alisa Jackson

    I have a Sealy crib mattress that was manufactured on 7.2.12, model number EM403. There is no indication, on the label of this crib mattress, that the mattress is Greenguard certified. I reached out to customer service twice. The first lady I spoke with politely insisted that the crib label had to have the Greenguard certification stamp based on the cribs manufacture date.So I took a picture of the label and contacted customer service again. I spoke with a different lady and I gave her a brief description of the issue and asked if I could send the picture of the label to her. She provided me her email address and seemed happy to review the issue. Unfortunately she responded back to me with standard company language which does not solve the issue. I truly believe that the product I have is not Greenguard certified, otherwise it would showcase the appropriate information on the label. I would like to know why customer service insists that this mattress is Greenguard certified but no one can tell my why the mattress is missing the certification information on the label. I am also interested in exchanging the mattress for a mattress that is certified…this should not be an issues under the twenty year warranty as the mattress is should be considered defective.

    Kara,
    I am sorry you had an unpleasant experience with the CS rep. Please know that all Kolcraft and Sealy crib mattresses are GREENGUARD Certified for Indoor Air Quality and the more stringent Children & Schools Certification Testing. Every mattress Kolcraft manufactures received certification in January 2012. Mattresses manufactured before that date use the same materials and qualify for certification.

    The marketing materials have transitioned at different times to communicate the certification so your mattress may have shipped before the label was added, but it is certified. If you have further questions, please contact me at marketing@kolcraft.com

    Thank you,
    Michelle
