Infants need an extra-firm mattress and toddlers need one that's a little softer. So how do you pick? Now you don't have to, with this high-quality mattress—made exclusively for giggle by Colgate. The two sides are cushioned to meet these two developmental needs, so that you never have to compromise. When your child gets a little older, just flip the mattress over. It's both comfortable and well constructed, with a 135-coil fabrication and triple-laminate vinyl cover.
Why it's a giggle pick We love the innovation of this great baby necessity from our very own line of Better Basics.

Meets the following giggle Criteria:
BEST BASICS: These are the tried-and-true necessities that every new parent needs, such as burp cloths and baby bottles, plus some of those things that just make parenting a little simpler. Most of them are considered must-haves, and the rest will make your life so much easier they'll be a no-brainer. In this category, we look for convenience and functionality above all else.BEST BASICS: everyday baby essentials
MULTI-USE: Everyone wants to get the most for their money, but that doesn't always translate to the lowest price. Sometimes it means choosing one great product instead of buying multiple products over time. These products last longer and do more - whether they grow with your baby, live on beyond the baby years, or can be used for more than one purpose - so that you can always feel confident that you made a great investment.MULTI-USE: versatile & long-lasting
HEALTHY: Every parent's number-one goal is a healthy baby, and babies' developing systems are a lot more sensitive than adults. That's why we work hard to find products that won't introduce any more toxins than necessary into your home. Sometimes that means organic products that avoid pesticides and chemicals, but it also includes things like nontoxic cleaning products made from plant-based ingredients, or plastics without toxins likes BPA or phthalates.HEALTHY: made with safe or organic materials

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coming back for more We bought this mattress when our son was born 3.5 years ago and it's still going strong. Now that we're expecting #2, we're planning on buying another. This is a mattress that I would be happy to sleep on (if it weren't a little short for adults). We bought a cheaper mattress at BRU for the grandparents' house and it doesn't even compare. April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality and value I didn't appreciate this mattress until we were temporarily displaced by the hurricane and bought a "cheap" (considering the circumstance) crib and mattress from the furniture rental company (they did not rent used - only new for purchase). Only then did I realize how far superior the Giggle mattress we had grown accustomed to was. Despite being small and only having to support the weight of a 2-month old munchkin, there really was a huge difference in how well the mattress distributed weight and did or didn't create weird puffy areas. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value We got this mattress to go with our Harper crib. It was a good value and seems like a solid, well made mattress. I like that you can use it on the soft side for older babies and firm side for infants. Good deal! March 13, 2011

Q: 
Polyurethane is a known endocrine-disruptor, despite many endorsements by government/baby organizations to the contrary. How come Giggle is promoting an item with this component? Especially when other website-products cite the GreenGuard certification boasting the product is polyurethane free?

Which mattresses are polyurethane free, and can this be more clearly demarcated on the website?

A: 
Yes, the foam inside this mattress is polyurethane. And yes, we agree that there has been a lot of discussion on the healthy attributes of polyurethane. However, its use not only meets and exceeds all current and pending standards for baby mattresses, it is used as the #1 cushioning solution throughout the world and respected associations such as First Candle (formerly known as the "SIDS Alliance") have specifically come out in support of its use.

The bottom line is that all 100% natural alternatives, that can also meet and exceed all other national and international standards, still cost more to produce. If spending more on a crib mattress is a choice that you can make, we encourage you to consider our giggle Better Basics organic mattress, our pure grow wool/organic cotton options from OMI, or our coco fiber/lamb's wool/organic cotton from NaturalMat

The Dual-Firmness mattress is a budget-friendly option that does meet and exceed all required standards for a safe and healthy sleeping environment for your baby.

Q: 
If one side of this mattress is made for toddlers, then why does the age range say "newborn - 12 months"? I mean - shouldn't the toddler side extend beyond 12 mos?

Oops! Thanks for catching our mistake! giggle's Better Basics Dual-Firmness Crib Mattress (like all crib mattresses in giggle's assortment) is intended to be used from birth until a child outgrows their crib, which can be as early as age 18 months and as late as age 4. Use the very firm side from newborn to age 1; use the toddler side from age 1+. Our mattresses are so sturdy you can even continue to use your infant's mattress once you convert your crib to a toddler bed!

Q: 
I see that this mattress has a "triple laminate vinyl cover" and was wondering if that causes any crinkling sounds when you sit on or roll around on the mattress? Also how does this covering affect the texture/feel of the mattress?

Thanks!

A: 
The cover of giggle's Better Basics Dual-firmness Crib Mattress is triple layered, reinforced, waterproof and tear-resistant. When dressed with a crib sheet the mattress's embossed texture is smooth, and when active babies are sitting, standing, or rolling the cover does not cause crinkling sounds.

giggle's Better Basics Dual Firmness Crib Mattress is made in partnership with Colgate, a trusted manufacturer of children's mattresses for over 30 years. This mattress is in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Mattress Flammability Standards 16 CFR 1632 and 16 CFR 1633, and uses a chemical-free, felted cotton outer-layer as a flame barrier.

In addition, all Colgate mattress products are GreenGuard certified. In order to be GreenGuard certified, each individual raw material was tested for volatile organic compounds (VOC's) as well as the final product, which is a combination of those raw materials. As GreenGuard certified products must meet stringent requirements for chemical emissions and toxicity, such as being screened for over 10,000 different chemicals including irritants, carcinogens and reproductive toxins, giggle is confident that our Better Basics Dual Firmness Crib Mattress is the healiest conventional mattess option, which means more sleepful nights for you and your baby!

Q: 
We just purchased the dual-firmness crib mattress, and it's great -- except we're trying to figure out which side is the infant side and which is the toddler side. The firmness seems pretty similar once it's in the crib. Could you let us know which side the better basics / manufacturer's tag is on (infant or toddler)? That would let us know! Thanks!

Great question! The sides are labeled "firm" and "extra firm", with extra firm being the infant side. The toddler side is the one with the giggle Better Basics label attached. You made a wonderful choice with the Dual-Firmness mattress!

Hi, a lot of products are "Made in the USA" and get parts from China~ when your mattress says "Made in the USA" is the entire mattress from USA or is it just assembled here? How do you know?
