I needed a couple of mattresses for my kids and decided to try two different ones: The Graco Premium Foam Crib and Toddler Mattress in a Box, and the DaVinci Twilight Hypoallergenic Ultra Firm Crib Mattress.
- Inexpensive at $50
- Noisy (every movement makes a squeaky sound)
- Not as firm as advertised
- Firm and well made
- Really comfortable (baby sleeps like a rock on it)
- No noise
- Price ($20 extra compared to the DaVinci)
- Takes a day or so to expand to full size
Neither of these mattresses had any chemical smells.
Overall, if we had to do it again, we’d pick the Graco – for both kids. Our youngest sleeps really well on it (every night for a week now). Our oldest tosses and turns on the DaVinci. DaVinci makes a good crib but they don’t make a great mattress.
