Kolcraft -- Sealy Spring Form Crib Mattress Review & Silent Auction!

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 9:20 PM

When I was pregnant, John and I had so many discussions on what crib and what crib mattress we'd get for Kendall. There are sooo many choices on there, it can get pretty stressful to say the least. Of course you want your baby to be happy and comfortable and of course safe.
We finally agreed but turns out, it wasn't the best for Kendall. The one we bought is extremely firm, turns out... Kendall doesn't like overly firm things to sleep on. Greattt.

I was so excited when Kolcraft agreed to send me a Sealy Spring Form mattress! This is a two sided innerspring mattress that features latex foam.
First let me tell you that we had a 100% wake up free night the 1st night Kendall slept on this! It was so great for the whole family, she always wakes up pretty happy but this day was extra special, plus daddy & I felt amazing after a uninterrupted nights sleep.

The benefits of Innersprings
  • You get amazing posture support. Whenever baby is positioned on the mattress, the interlocking coil innerspring system will adjust to support baby's weight and position.
  • Peace of mind with edge to edge security. No matter how close to the edge a baby moves or a toddler stands, the heavy gauge perimeter border wire prevents sagging!
  • Flawless motion sensitivity. Head-to-toe helical wire is interlaced through each coil to minimize disturbance when baby moves, providing a firm foundation.
We had Makenna stand on the mattress to test out the corner sagging. She's 35 pounds and even with her standing near the corner it didn't budge. I think it passed the test :)

Like me, you may not know the benefits of latex foam. I recently learned that latex foam is very resilient. Latex foam resists compression, also it will respond to a child's movement, and does not heat up and sink in like memory foam.  Latex foam keeps the body cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter for a very breathable mattress. A couple other great benefits of latex foam is that it inherently inhibits bacteria, dust-mites, and microbes from attaching to it, promoting a cleaner sleeping environment. That makes the Spring Form mattress very hypoallergenic & naturally antibacterial!

Like I mentioned before this mattress is two sided!!
Side One Innersprings for Infants:
There are 4 points that I just have to tell you about when it comes to the side for infants.
  1. 204 interwoven innerspring coils for a supportive and firm foundation
  2. All-around border rods keep sides, corners and edges firm
  3. Hypoallergenic layer plus protective wrap for comfort
  4. Plush woven jacquard fabric cover & lock stitched binding
    · Staph-Gaurd® treated to keep bacteria, odor, and allergens away.· Wet-resistant for baby's comfort!

Side Two Latex Foam for Toddlers
Of course we haven't used this side yet but I truly cannot wait because it sounds perfect!
Besides the above great features the toddler side has a few others I just have to mention...
  1. Luxuriously thick hypoallergenic latex foam top layer for ultimate comfort and resiliency.
  2. Airflow pocket allows mattress to "naturally breathe" without the use of metal vents.
  3. Square corners for a snug fit into all U.S. standard size cribs and toddlers beds.

See!! A pretty amazing mattress, right? Can I just say that I'm pretty jealous of Kendall.
Oh and also... the whole mattress is is phthalate and flammability compliant and does not contain toxic fire retardants, plus there is a lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials!!
