Now onto my review and GIVEAWAY of the Lullaby Earth Super Lightweight 2 Stage Crib Mattress………
Grady never slept much in his crib. I thought I would be able to reuse his mattress for Haley since he never used it, but he recently transitioned from our bed to his own toddler bed. His crib mattress fits right into his toddler bed so it’s finally getting some use! That meant I needed to buy a new one for Haley even though we’re a co-sleeping family. Because Grady’s only 2, I’m using the crib as a “safe place” to put Haley when I use the bathroom, shower, etc. so that Grady doesn’t accidentally hurt her. She’ll eventually use a crib mattress, so I wanted to get as healthy of an option as I could find for her.
I decided to get one from Lullaby Earth. I went with the Super Lightweight 2-Stage Crib Mattress since it’s likely that Haley won’t use it much until she’s ready for a toddler bed (I’ll get to that feature in a bit). Even more important though, is that it’s chemical and allergen free unlike most traditional mattresses. Their mattresses are free of polyurethane foam (including “soybean” foam blends), vinyl/PVC, polyurethane coated nylon or damask, PFC water-resistant treatments, antibacterial biocides and other various chemicals. Instead of the chemicals needed to make it fire retardent, Lullaby Earth uses hydrated silica, a harmless natural mineral. Their partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World was what sealed the deal for me. Knowing that Lullaby Earth met HCHW’s strict quality standards gave me piece of mind that I was choosing a safe product for Haley.
I was so surprised when the mattress arrived at my door. I knew that it was going to be light, but I was still shocked that I picked up this huge box and carried it right inside. It’s only 7 lbs! I think Grady’s mattress weighs 3X’s that! Having such a lightweight mattress makes changing the crib sheet super easy. I can lift the end of the mattress right up and slide the sheet on! It’s a perfect snug fit, too!
Another feature that I like is that it’s completely WATERPROOF. No worrying about urine or spit up getting into the mattress. It’s completely sealed all around so there’s no chance of anything getting in (bed bugs included). No mildew. No mold. No bacteria. Just a perfectly clean mattress that’ll last for many years! And when we’re done with it, it’s completely recyclable!
Now, lets talk about the 2-Stage feature. One side of the mattress is firm for use by infants and the other side of the mattress is softer for use by toddlers. Isn’t that neat? I’ve never seen another mattress like that before. It’s a great idea! We have it set up in the crib with the firm side up. There’s a little tag with an arrow to help you know what side to put it on. Then when she moves to a toddler bed, we’ll switch it to the softer side! Genius idea!
Haley hasn’t slept on it much yet (a couple naps here and there), but we plan to get lots of use out of it as she grows!
BUY IT: You can purchase a Super Lightweight 2-Stage Crib Mattress from Lullaby Earth, like the one I reviewed, directly on the Lullaby Earth website or through selected retailers for $199. That’s an AMAZING price for a chemical free mattress! I’m planning on getting a second one to replace Grady’s mattress.
