The classic crib mattress
Classic crib mattresses are the tried and true, long time favorites that have been keeping babies safe and parents happy for years and years. Features that define a classic mattress are:
- Firmness through the use of durable steel coils, border wire, and other core upgrades
- Cushioning support that is firm enough for infants and comfortable enough for toddlers to create better sleep
- A cover with an easy-clean waterproof surface to keep liquids, odors, and germs from clinging to the mattress.
A couple of classic mattresses to check out are the Sealy Baby Stargazer and the Sealy Ortho Rest.

- Seals like Greenguard Gold and tests that pass the Children’s Safe Products Act & Chemicals of High Concern Regulations
If creating a luxurious sleeping environment for your baby while doing a solid for the planet is something you’re into, take a look at the Sealy Soybean Plush Foam-Core and Sealy Healthy Dream 2-Stage Hybrid.
