Sealy Soybean Foam-Core Crib Mattress vs. Colgate
Sealy Mattress Review: Popular and Safe Mattress?
By JAN ASHBY
In today’s post, I wish to give you an overview of some popular Sealy crib mattresses as well as a few other crib mattresses (Colgate, Lajobi). You’ll HEAR the Good and the Bad – so you can make your best choice.
There are 3 memory foam mattresses made by Sealy which are popular and rated highly.
- Sealy Soybean Foam-Core Crib Mattress
- Sealy Soybean Plush Foam Crib Mattress
- Sealy Baby Firm Rest Crib mattress – The first two (#1 and #2 above) are rated highly and are $99 – as of this writing (July 2013). The third option is Sealy Baby Firm Rest Crib mattress – which is rated 4 stars and is $71.99.
Having read the reviews on each, I am going to convey what it is reviewers most liked and disliked. First will be Sealy Soybean Foam-Core Crib Mattress
“Easy to change the sheets, due to its lightweight nature”
“Whole mattress is phthalate and flammability compliant and does not have toxic fire retardants”
“Square corners provides a snug fit in cribs”
“Mattress fits toddler bed frames”
“The product description is kind of misleading in that it’s only 5% soybean. I did a bit of research & discovered that companies are allowed to CLAIM a mattress is soybean, even if it’s a tiny percentage.” – READ MORE
“The outside is made of vinyl material”
“Can be too soft for some babies”
You can make up your mind on this, but if you don’t like vinyl OR you’re concerned it won’t be firm enough.. you may want to consider a different mattress. There’s a Sealy Baby Soybean Plush Core mattress that got 5 Star Reviews (and no other ratings) – it is:
SEALY BABY SOYBEAN PLUSH FOAM CORE CRIB MATTRESS
5 STAR REVIEWS
What Reviewers Said:
“I like how it fits the crib the way it should. Is easy to flip, and PERFECT construction. This is…” – READ MORE
” The mattress arrived quickly, and it fit correctly – with no gaps at the corners or..” READ MORE
Let’s continue on now, with the Sealy Baby Firm Rest Crib mattress
Of 110 total reviews, 89 owners rated this baby foam mattress either 4 or 5 stars. There are pros and cons of every product. However, 3 cons go against Sealy Baby Firm Rest:
- 2 people commented that the mattress is not firm enough – and additionally that it is cheap
- It is made by Kolcraft – not by Sealy
- 5 of 8 reviewers that rated it 1 Star reported indentations in the baby foam mattress
I do not recommend this mattress.
Crib Mattress Supreme: Colgate Visco Dual Foam Mattress
If money is not an issue, I can recommend you investigate Colgate Visco-Classica Dual Firmness Foam Crib Mattress with Memory Foam. It’s $249 (as of July 2013), but most of the ladies rated it 4 or 5 stars and only 1 person said “2 Star”. WHAT did the mothers like so well about it:
“Had this bed for 4 years and it’s not lost its shape. Also, it’s a breeze to get into and..” READ MORE
“No gaps with this bed, in fact we feel this is the perfect, comfy mattress for..” READ MORE
“Our baby has slept well on this since Day 1. Very light – it’s a snap to change the sheets. Would purchase again…” READ MORE
“The dual side bonus has been wonderful for our baby as he moved into Toddler years..” READ MORE
80 percent of reviewers gave it 5 Stars, no one rated it 1 star – so this bed may be worth looking into.
