We were very impressed by the crib sized version My Green Mattress. This crib mattress is extremely high-quality and is quite a bit thicker and more substantial than the crib mattress Lucas was using before. When I unboxed it, (which was tough… it’s heavy!) there was no chemical odor or off-gassing at all. It is about an inch thicker than my regular, run-of-the-mill crib mattress. Fitted crib sheets still fit it fine!
Here’s Lucas and I unboxing the product and telling you a bit about it!
The mattress is made of organic cotton and a natural wool that has not been treated with chemicals, but is naturally flame-resistant. There are 280 individually wrapped coil springs in this mattress, making it just as nice as what adults sleep on! I am really impressed by the springiness of the mattress, and now that I have seen a high-quality, natural, organic mattress, I definitely won’t switch back to the old (only 7 months old!) basic mattress for Lucas’ crib.
Here’s a brief video comparing our basic crib mattress to the My Green Mattress.
After using this product for a few weeks, I do think Lucas has been waking up less. He seems to go to sleep more easily as well, possibly since the My Green Mattress is so soft and cozy! This is a totally high-quality product, through and through.
My Green Mattress doesn’t make any noise, so there’s no disturbance to a sleeping baby. My old crib mattress was plastic-encased (so it was waterproof) but it made a lot of smooshing and crinkling noises when Lucas moved around which probably contributed to Lucas being a troubled sleeper. Since I have a waterproof mattress pad, the waterproof mattress turns out to be unnecessary.
The price for a My Green Mattress crib mattress is $249, and shipping is free. This is definitely more costly than your basic mattress, but after testing this mattress, I think it is worth the extra cost. It is a top-quality product, made of organic cotton and natural wool and is manufactured here in the USA. It is extremely well-made, and I know I will be able to use it for years and for future kids as we add to our little family! I hope you give this product a try and enjoy it as much as Lucas does!
