Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCGIRL28 Great Love this mattress for my toddler. He has been sleeping in it along with the Harper crib since he was a newborn. The mattress is firm and I love the feeling of knowing it is so eco friendly and my child is not being exposed to any unnecessary chemicals. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LMarie Best Mattress You'll Find I definitely did my homework in picking out a mattress - I wanted something safe, organic, comfortable - pretty much perfect. When the mattress was delivered and fit snuggly into our Century Crib I was so happy. It was the perfect fit, firmness and the quality I was hoping for. No bumpy uncomfortable springs or toxic plastic here! March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoDaddy Baby likes! Is organic worth extra cost? Not sure, but we always air on the Side of being safe. Plus we will have this for many more children, so hoping it will last! March 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by januarybaby Perfect firmness and great quality! Of all the things that mattered the most when shopping for our little one, we worried and researched the most about the mattress. We wanted something not only safe and free of nasty chemicals, but soft and welcoming for our little one to lie her face upon. We found it with this mattress. Great quality, price, and firmness! 14 months later, we still feel like our little one is safe when we put her to bed. March 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice Going organic It was a hard choice finding a mattress and deciding whether or not to go organic. In the end I thought it was best to go the organic route because I plan on having this mattress for a long long time, better to make a good investment now. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by HH23 Love it! I just received my organic cotton crib mattress and I am very pleased with how it is constructed, and how well it fits in our Newport Cottage Crib! I think its definitely worth spending a little more to get a mattress thats organic when you consider how many hours your child spends sleeping. I also like that because the mattress is waterproof on all sides you really don't need a waterproof mattress pad so I think it will breathe better. The fact that it is the seamless design also is great because there are no gaps between the crib and mattress. It also arrived at my door in just 3 days very well packaged and clean!

Q:I'm trying to understand the difference between the two organic crib mattresses from the Giggle Better Basics line. Can you compare/contrast? Thank you.
A:giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress and Organic Dual Firmness Crib Mattress are both GreenGUARD certified (and, are flame retardant without the addition of chemicals!), fit standard cribs and meet or exceed the equivalent firmness of a 135-coil-count mattress.
The differences are in the materials. Here's the breakdown:
--giggle Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress: This waterproof, hygienic organic mattress has traditional mattress features (like a 252 coil count), and boasts natural internal materials (including organic cotton, hydrated silica and baking soda bonded to eucalyptus and poplar cellulose fiber). Plus, the organic cotton outer layer protected by food-grade polyethylene and heat-sealed edges prevent moisture & dust penetration making sure your mattress's insides stay clean!
--giggle Better Basics Organic Dual Firmness Crib Mattress: This is a budget-(and eco!)- friendlier 2-in-1 solution for an organic customer! The inside of the mattress is built with conventional materials (like 280 coils, Certi-Pur foam, coir fiber, and felted cotton), and organic cotton is used to cover the outside of the mattress (backed with a waterproof lining -- make sure to add a waterproof cover to keep the cotton clean), combining the parent-favorite feature of a dual-firmness mattress with the healthier option of organic cotton next to your baby's skin!
Products from my answer
Q:Is this crib mattress strandrd size? Will it fit sheets from other retailers, or only sheets sold at Giggle?
A:giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress is a U.S. standard-size crib mattress made in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulations, and is intended to fit all U.S. standard-size cribs and all U.S. standard-size crib bedding.
Q:hello! i've been reading a lot about sids prevention - and there are many studies suggesting that fire retardant materials could be a cause. I know the mattress is organic, but does that only pertain to the filling? Does the outer coating of the mattress need to be fire retardant to meet codes???? Thank you!
A:All crib mattresses have to meet the flame retardant laws, no questions asked. However, retardants are not the only way to meet the required standards. Organic cotton is a far superior filling material and is significantly less flammable than polyurethane foam or latex, allowing for more creative solutions. Our exclusive fire protection system is based on the unique fire retardant properties of baking soda and hydrated silica permanently bonded to cellulose. This results in an inherently flame resistant barrier that does not breakdown. The cellulose fiber used is derived primarily from eucalyptus and poplar trees, and has a low carbon footprint.
So, yes, giggle's awesome Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress meets and exceeds all relevant standards, including the flammability standards, but is free of any/all flame retardant chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, petrochemicals, or other chemicals.
A:giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress is made in partnership with NaturePedic. The mattress's flat seams are heat-sealed to keep moisture away from the organic cotton filling. Plus, it eliminates the potentially harmful chemicals commonly found in crib mattresses for a healthy night's sleep.
Q:Does this mattress offer dual firmness for infants and toddlers? If not, do you have another organic and safe mattress that does? Thanks!
A:No, this mattress is not a "dual firmness." However, with a 252 coil count, it is a mattress that we firmly stand behind for useage throughout the life of a crib-sized mattress (whether for a crib or in a toddler bed). This lovely organic mattress is really a "best of class" for a value-based, organic crib mattress. We think you'll love it!
Q:Hello, does this mattress fit the Oeuf Sparrow Crib? Also, how would this mattress be different than the organic mattress Oeuf sells? Thank you.
A:Yes, our amazing giggle Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress fits any standard US-sized crib. And yes, the Oeuf Sparrow Crib is a standard US-sized crib. Our giggle Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress represents our pick for the best in overall value and health for crib mattresses. We work hard to select our products – particularly those that qualify as giggle Better Basics products – from the very competitive world market of mattresses. Because we do not have the details on the who Oeuf is buying their mattress from, we cannot comment on their point-by-point comparison. However, we can confidently say that as a valued partner of Oeuf, they recommend our giggle solutions for their products.
Q:I just received the Organic Cotton Crib Mattress and it looks great! Is there anything I need to do to air it out or clean it before putting my crib bedding on? Also is there a particular crib mattress pad you recommend? I spoke with Naturepedic and they said you don't need an additional waterproof mattress pad because its already waterproof. I just wanted to make sure! Thanks!
A:Nope, no need for airing out or cleaning this awesome mattress before use. It comes ready to go! And it is true that the beautiful mattress’ 100% polyethylene food-grade waterproof surface (no vinyl/PVC, phthalates, or antimicrobial biocides!) doesn’t require an additional mattress pad. However, many of our parents prefer to add our Organic Cotton Waterproof Crib Mattress Pad for added protection – both from a clean-up/preservation of the lovely mattress they’ve just invested in as well as for an easy-to-clean layer that makes wets/leaks faster/easy to clean. In the end, this choice becomes more about lifestyle and use rather than need. Enjoy your beautiful new mattress!
Q:Is this manufactured by Naturepedic? Does it have dual firmness and if not can you flip it? Also is it good for todlers?
Q:Who manufactures this mattress & where can I go to verify giggle's claims that this product is peer tested & approved?
A:Our giggle Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress is manufactured by Naturepedic, is certified to meet and exceed all federal and state flammability standards and has achieved the strictest GREENGUARD certification standards for eliminating toxic chemical emissions. To be sold at giggle, like with any product we sell, this mattress has been through an extensive evaluation against our giggle criteria (for more information about our criteria, read more at http://www.giggle.com/about_criteri...), is open to the public for peer feedback with 100% transparency and represents a set of product claims that we absolutely stand behind.
Q:is this made by naturepedic? trying to compare different organic mattresses and this description says it's 252 coils, they have the exact same number amount of coils.
A:Yes, our great partner in manufacturing the Organic Cotton Crib Mattress is Naturepedic. Their GREENGUARD certification and overall strong commitment to baby health and safety (such as the use of U.S. grown organic cotton, and elimination of harmful chemicals during production) are what make them a natural giggle pick, and part of our better basics line.
