When I was pregnant with Hayden, my husband and I did a ton of research on baby items – from cribs to car seats! But for some reason, we didn’t do much research on a crib mattress. When the time came to purchase one, we walked into a store and picked one of the first crib mattresses we came across. Of course, Hayden never complained about it as a baby but when we used that same mattress in his toddler bed, he would tell us how it wasn’t comfortable.
We care so much about mattresses for ourselves – after all, we spend so much time in bed and it’s so important to get a good night’s sleep – but why didn’t I do the research for a good mattress for my baby?
When we found out that we were having twins, I knew that I was going to use the same car seat brand and even the same crib brand – we had researched those and knew we had the best. I now wanted to make sure that we were getting the best mattresses for them also. I was wanting something that was both safe and comfortable but also that would last since we would be using these crib mattresses to convert to a toddler mattress.
I’ve worked with Serta Mattresses for the last two years now and I can’t imagine sleeping on another mattress brand. My husband and I are getting the best sleep now (well maybe not NOW since we do have newborn twins!) and even my son makes excuses to try and sleep in our bed.
When it came to choosing what mattresses our twin girls would sleep on, I knew it would be a Serta Crib Mattress! The mattress that we chose was the Serta Quiet Nights Crib Mattress – a dual sided crib mattress featuring the original Serta® Exclusive Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam! Basically, this crib mattress is just like the mattress that my husband and I sleep on! It’s got so many great features and it’s really unlike any crib mattress I’ve came across.
The girls have been sleeping on their new mattresses for naps right now and they look pretty comfortable to me! Check back next week when I share an in-depth review and lots of pictures of the features of the Serta Quiet Nights Crib Mattress!
What features do you look for in a crib mattress?
