The two organic crib mattress options that Greenbuds offers retail for $339 (Primrose) and $389 (Magnolia). The primary difference between the two is simply the thickness (4.5" vs. 5.5"), by no means the quality. This is a U.S. made mattress - which is a rare find! It comes with a removable organic cotton cover which is naturally water repellent with 100% pure organic wool quilted into it. The mattress comes with 2 sleep surfaces in one - the firm side of natural Coconut Coir for infants to sleep on and a 1" layer of all-natural latex that's perfect for toddlers.
The Greenbuds mattresses are entirely flexible to fit your needs and budget. First you pick the mattress core and then you pair it with a cover. The covers virtually eliminate the need for a mattress protector since they are removable and washable. I have already mentioned the two core options above, the removable cover options are as follows:
- Organic Cotton Quilted Cover
- Organic Cotton Quilted with Organic Wool Fill
- 100% Waterproof Organic Cotton Cover with Food Grade Polyethelyne
In addition to mattresses you'll find affordable organic toddler pillows, currently available on Amazonfor $34.95. Also available are organic cotton crib sheets, crib mattress protectors, oval mattresses, cradle, and portable crib mattresses.
When we received the mattress it was easy to tell it wasn't the typical crib mattress - primarily by the smell. No toxic fumes and no need to air it out. It only had the slight smell of the latex, similar to the shredded latex pillows that we sleep on. This is a huge relief and I feel safe placing my baby to sleep on it! I hope they also consider making a twin size mattress in the future - our toddler will be switching to one soon...
