Mattresses Are Not All Created Equal
"The Sealy Cool Beginnings 2-Stage Foam & Gel crib mattress is a mattress that offers the firmness of an ultra sturdy and lightweight polyethylene core plus the cooling comfort of soybean cool gel on the softer side. So it is like two mattresses in one, one side is firm and the other cooling.
The Infant Side features a 100% Air-Flow Polyethylene foam core for optimum firmness for infants. It is free of harmful chemicals (moms have enough to worry about) and durable.
The toddler side features natural soy-enhanced cool gel perfect for maximum comfort and cooling.
Some more features:
The Cool-Tex two tone cover is soft and enhances the cooling gel to keep babies comfortable while sleeping.
Airflow pockets for freshness
The whole mattress is encased in PVC-free cover that is both liquid and stain-resistant for a more sanitary sleeping surface.
The stitching used will not unravel or trap liquids and odors.
Square corner design for snug fit in cribs
Lightweight for easy crib sheet changing
Protective cotton wrap encloses the whole mattress
I will say mattresses sure have come a long way since I bought our first crib mattress. I don't remember anything fancy about it at all. It was encased completely in wipeable plastic and I paid a little more for a softer one but that was it. I love that this mattress is designed for growing with your child and enhancing their sleep, which is a must, right? Its breathable and soft where it needs to be, really it is perfect. I love too that it does not feel cheap or stiff, plus that it is completely cleaned by just wiping it down.
I used to think all mattresses were built the same but there are definitely some nicer ones out there, such as this one that makes you want the best for your baby. For how much time a baby sleeps (which is hopefully a lot) in their crib and then toddler bed and then if you pass it on for another baby, a mattress like this is a great investment. Its durable enough too that putting it in storage in between kids would be fine as well I would think!
