Great Mattress
This mattress is very easy to keep clean and it is also not too heavy. I have an easy time changing the sheets without breaking my back!! and it is still organic. I know it is a bit expensive but it is totally worth it when it comes to your babies first sleeping experience....it is amazing how much time they spend sleeping!!!

do NOT buy.
This is the worst baby product I bought. The mattress is SOOOO heavy. Every time I need to change the sheet I want to cry. It seems like not a big deal when the crib is up high...but when you lower the crib to the midlevel or lowest level and you have to change the sheet, it becomes impossible.

OUR MOST POPULAR MATTRESS, IT'S TRUE THAT THE OMI ORGANIC SPRING MATTRESS IS A HEAVIER MATTRESS THAN MORE TYPICAL VINYL COVERED BABY MATTRESSES. WHY? IT'S FILLED WITH PURE GROW WOOL AND IS FINISHED MUCH MORE LIKE A TYPICAL ADULT'S MATTRESS. LOOKING FOR LIGHT WEIGHT? WE RECOMMEND THE COLGATE 2-IN-1 AS OUR PICK FOR "FIRM" BUT TRADITIONAL STYLED MATTRESS -- LIGHT AND MADE WITH A LAMINATE VINYL COVERING.

Avoid Toxic Chemicals Where Your Baby Sleeps
A few years ago I read a very interesting book about the impact chemicals are having on our health. In that book there was a section on SIDS and a possible connection with fire retardant chemicals. A chemist in New Zealand made a persuasive argument that toxic chemicals like fire retardants interact with the heat from the child's body and a fungus that commonly grows in bedding. It creates a gas that asphyxiates the baby. This would make sense considering parents were told for so many years to have their babies sleep on their stomachs. They found that SIDS cases fell 48 percent once they instituted a new campaign to encourage parents to wrap the crib mattress in airtight protective coverings.
Maybe there is truth to this SIDS argument and maybe not, I cannot say. But I always like to avoid chemicals on or around my baby when possible so I chose this organic cotton mattress. Why bother with organic cotton pajamas and sheets if your mattress is covered in flame retardents and other chemicals?
I am very happy with this mattress and the other products I've purchased from Giggle and plan on buying more for baby #2. Thank you!

We have two!
We were so pleased with the first one, we had to get another when the second child came. And we've never regreted either purchase for a moment.
