Size & Safety
In order to fit in a standard frame, crib mattresses should be about 52 inches long and 27.5 inches wide. The most important size guideline to keep in mind is that any gap between the edge of the mattress and the side of the crib bigger than the width of two fingers is too large. Babies are able to get trapped in that space, which can lead to serious injury or suffocation.
Materials & Budget
When it comes to mattresses, infants need more support than adults. What may seem too hard for you is probably ideal for your baby, as they need extra firm sleep surfaces to help them develop muscle strength. Crib mattresses are typically made with foam or innersprings.
Foam mattresses are popular lightweight options. While less expensive than coil springs, foam mattresses are just as resilient and long-lasting. A good way to test foam crib mattresses for firmness is to press down on the center and then watch how quickly the material bounces back.
Innerspring mattresses for cribs tend to be more expensive, but they're also thicker and denser than foam. Look for high coil counts and low steel gauges when searching for mattresses of greater quality. Elements such as border rods and coir fibers add to the uniformity and coziness of these crib mattresses.
