For those of you looking for a memory foam crib mattress, you have came to the right place.
The My First Mattress Memory Foam Crib Mattress is by far the best memory foam crib mattress we have ever came across in the market and if you've done your research, you will know that there is quite a handful of them.
As mentioned, this baby crib mattress is constructed of premium CertiPUR-US certified flexible polyurethane foam. This type of foam is firm yet very breathable to ensure maximum comfort.
Being CertiPUR-US certified, it means that this crib mattress has undergone rigorous testing to ensure it is free of any prohibited chemicals i.e. phthalates, lead, and mercury.
It also meets or exceeds all applicable ASTM International and CPSC safety standards, and meets all applicable federal flammability standards so you can be sure that this is a very safe memory foam crib mattress for your little one.
Because it is memory foam, the mattress is quiet and doesn't make noises when baby moves, unlike other traditional foam crib mattress with plastic vinyl covers.
Instead, the My First Mattress uses a soft velour removable crib mattress cover that is waterproof and washable. Not only does this help to prevent nasty mould and bacterial growth, the velour cover also adds extra comfort to your baby’s tender skin.
One thing that you may find is that the My First Mattress is firmer than what you would have expected from a memory foam product.
Do not be alarmed - it is designed to be this way because babies need extra firm high-density support for their safety. It won't be uncomfortable for them (even though it may seem so to you) but instead, it will be good for their growth and development.
We do have to let you know that there may be mild scent when you first open up the mattress. This is expected of memory foam mattresses, especially when delivered during cold weather when its smell may be heightened.
You see, the My First Mattress is machine rolled and compressed into a bundle (as pictured left) when it is delivered.
It is unavoidable that some scent will be present because of the tight compression and it may take up to 72 hours to regain its full shape.
While we understand that there may be some who are sensitive to odor and that it can be irritating to some, it is in no way harmful or unhealthy. If anything, we'd say the the smell of this one here is not as strong as many others in the market.
Simply air it out and the smell will dissipate quickly. We suggest leaving the mattress uncovered during the first few days to allow the air in your home circulate around the product so that the open cells can expel the ‘processing’ air and take in new air.
Hypoallergenic, mite-proof and anti-microbial, the My First Mattress Memory Foam Crib Mattress is actually very reasonably priced . The stand-out feature for us here, amongst others, is definitely how quiet it is compared to vinyl covered "crunchy" sounding mattresses.
If your baby is a light sleeper, this crib mattress might just be the choice for you.
