Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Will accommodate your children till they grow into a toddler
The Eco Classica is a dual-sided mattress, with one side firmer than the other. You can initially use the firm side for your infant and you can transfer the mattress to a toddler bed and use the softer side when he outgrows the crib.
Pro Has no harsh chemicals that are harmful for babies
Babies sleep and are exposed up-close to the mattress for at least 14 hours a day, during their most fragile years. They are prone to breathing in and absorbing, through their skin, whatever chemicals are in a regular, non-organic mattress. The Eco Classica is Greenguard Gold Certified, meaning it generates no harmful emissions, ensuring that your baby won't be exposed to them.
Pro Resists flame and heat in case of a fire emergency at home
The first two layers of the mattress are 100% organic cotton and they act as flammability barriers. It will not catch fire and resists heat in the event of a fire.
Pro Waterproof backing prevents mold and mildew from building up
Liquid has no means of permeating the surface. The foam inside stays dry forever and no harmful fungi will ever build up. It lets nothing into the mattress.
Pro Maintains body temperature with its breathable design
The cotton cover and foam core are created to allow air and heat passage, keeping your baby cool and comfortable during warm days. It also retains your baby's body temperature when it gets cold.
Pro The firm surface helps prevent sudden infant death
A firm mattress eliminates the chances of babies getting stuck in dips or indentations which can result in suffocation if they are face down.
Pro Its firm surface is great for babies' physical development
When your baby starts to crawl and stand on his own, he will need a surface that resists against pressure, push-ups and helps strengthen his muscles.
Pro Crib sheets won't loosen on a 6-inch thick mattress
This mattress is six inches thick, which ensures that your standard-size crib sheets are really tight and snug. When your baby moves around on a thinner mattress, the sheet might loosen from the edges and crumple up and cause suffocation when it ends up covering his nose.
Pro Easy to lift up and turn over
It is easy to lift the mattress from the crib, even with just one hand, due to its 9.6 pounds weight. Changing sheets in the middle of the night is a piece of cake.
The Eco Classica Series is one of the most expensive crib mattresses, mainly because it is eco-friendly. However, many parents don't mind spending a few extra bucks to ensure their baby isn't exposed to harsh chemicals used in conventional mattresses.
