The Best Foam Baby Mattress

Foam Core Crib Mattresses are lighter in construction compared to Innerspring Mattresses, making them a popular option for parents. When sorting through and selecting the best foam baby mattress, the most important factor to consider is foam density. Always remember, the firmer the mattress, the better for baby!

Below we’ve selected and reviewed three of the top-rated foam baby mattress, though there are more wonderful options making their way onto the market each year.

Best Baby Mattress - Sealy Soybean

The layers of the Sealy Soybean Foam Core Crib Mattress.

With a consistent 4.4 rating, the Sealy Soybean Foam Core Mattress is made with renewable soybean foam; the first of its kind in the industry. It is certified for indoor air quality, making it a great fit for your dream nursery as well as preschools and other child care facilities. The foam core is extra firm with cotton cushioning, which is essential for baby’s safety and growth.

With a 4.4 Star Rating, the EcoClassica III has risen to be one of the top picks in Foam Crib Mattresses. It’s dual-sided firmness ensures this mattress will last through both the infant and toddler stages. Weighing 9.6lbs, it’ll be easier to lift when changing those fitted crib sheets. The certified 100% organic cotton cover has a waterproof backing for spills and leaks, though we still recommend using a fitted waterproof cover.

The layers of the Little Dreamer Crib Mattress features an extra firm infant side and a less firm toddler side.

Rated 4.4 by moms and dads, this mattress is one of the few available that is certified vinyl, polyethylene, PVC, phthalates AND lead free. Talk about peace of mind! Weighing in at 10.3lbs, it is one of the heavier foam-core mattresses available, but this is a signal of a high-quality foam core. With dual-sided firmness, you have an extra firm infant side and a less firm toddler side ensuring longevity with this investment.
