Prefer natural rubber core to polyethylene foam core
I was disappointed to learn that the core of Naturepedic bassinet pads are made of “30% polyethylene foam.” I thought they were only coated with polyethylene. I would much prefer a mattress or pad with a natural rubber core. The Naturepedic representative said the Naturepedic crib mattresses also contain this same polyethylene foam, although I’m not sure how much. I just do not feel comfortable putting my baby on their mattresses.
Not as firm as I’d like for a newborn…
I loved this product when I first opened it… no foul odor and it was much more substantial than the mattress that came with my bassinet. After a single usages by my 8lb baby, there was a huge indent which was dissapointing. I’ve continued to use the mattress, I just rotate it and try to fix the indentations every night!
Better mattress for peace of mind
When I purchased a bassinet for my daughter, I did not like the flimsy mattress that came with the bassinet. I began to look for a new mattress for the bassinet and found this. Make sure you measure the bassinet before ordering this item. I did and it fits well. A friend of mine didn’t and it doesn’t fit her bassinet.After 2 1/2 months of continuous use, the mattress is still holding up well. It is starting to take on my daughter’s impression. It would be nice to “flip it” to even out the wear and tear on it but it does not appear that that will work. Hence the four stars.The price has gone down since I purchased my bassinet too.All in all this is a good mattress for the price and is a much better option than the standard flimsy mattress that usually comes with a bassinet.
Great quality and fits the Summer Infant By your side Sleeper more or less
Thick, firm and organic – love it. I purchased this to replace the mattress in the Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper. It fits but could be about 1 inch longer. However, the mattress that the Sleeper comes with actually does not fit in tight to the ends, so I don’t think that there is much difference. However, rolling up a prefold diaper and wedging it in to cover the 1-2 inch space (at baby’s feet) actually makes it a really tight fit at the top and sides – tighter than the mattress it came with. I think it will be great for every night and during the day use. It’s not ideal for traveling, as the sleeper won’t close up as well so in those cases I will use the mattress it came with. I purchased Kushies organic bassinet sheet and it fits great after washing!
Way too expensive
We bought the oval bassinet mattress to replace the plastic mattress that came with a cosleeper nest. It’s fine, but there’s not anything to it and the price is just ridiculous. We have the reversible crib/toddler mattress from the same company and that was something like $250. It’s fantastic quality, so it seems ridiculous that this flimsy little mattress that is less than 1/20 the size of the crib mattress is almost $70.She didn’t use this much because she wouldn’t sleep apart from me very well, but we still had issues with the mattress dipping where she lay on it, even though she was teeny tiny (less than 6 pounds) when she used it.There aren’t many options for organic bassinet mattresses, so for that reason alone (if you are like us and insist on organic bedding) it may be worth getting, but the price is still ridiculous.
