    I don’t think organic is worth it. My son is almost 10 month and sleep on his pack and play mattress. They grow out of their cribs and bed so quickly not worth it in my opinion.

    We purchased a Sealy foam mattress for my daughter who is almost 2 now. So far it has held up very well.

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be forking over extra money for an organic mattress.

    We got simmons kids slumbertime naturally mattress. We actually got it as part of a deal with our crib from target so we didn’t intentionally choose it but it got excellent reviews and so far it’s worked out well. Dear Daughter has been in it for 10 months and its holding up well so far.

    We’re going with an organic all natural mattress. I’ve read a few studies that show a possible link to SIDS from chemicals released through regular mattresses. This has not been proven but i feel more comfortable going with organic. If you don’t want to fork over the money for organic, you can always get a regular mattress and put an organic mattress pad on it!

    I did a bunch of research and decided on a Moonlight Slumber Little Dreamer foam mattress. I was willing to spend extra money on where my kid sleeps. It’s where she spends the majority of her time, between sleep at night and napping. And she should be using until she’s at least 3, as the crib turns into a toddler bed. I think it’s one place you don’t skimp on.

    I have the Sealy foam mattress.  It’s been great and my son seems comfortable.  It’s also light so it makes it easy to change the sheets.  It was one of the highest ranking ones in the book Baby Bargins.  If you have not checked out that book you should because it is a life saver!

    I sleep on a foam matress myself and love it, so there was no question about it.

    I like foam because they are lightweight.  Makes it easy to change those sheets frequently!!  Look at the book Baby Bargains, they are pretty reasonable about what is worth it and what is not and make good recommendations.

    Yea I’ve read TONS of stuff about all that because while it’s not proven…I don’t know, it just sort of make sense to me. It’s definitely a personal decision and the organic ones are a pretty penny. So many decisions to make when bringing a baby into this world!!!
