Colgate Kids has over fifty years experience as crib mattress specialists. I honestly had never heard of Colgate Kids (besides the toothpaste) until I started googling for the best crib mattresses and they were always on the top of the lists. After visiting their site I was so giddy that they also make organic crib mattresses!
I spent awhile looking over each and every crib mattress they make until I finally fell in love with the EcoSpring Ultra II! I was even more excited to find out that over the last 55 years Colgate has stayed a family business and they are still manufacturing crib mattresses out of Atlanta, Georgia!
After talking to the AWESOME people behind Colgate I knew this was a company and brand I would be happy to represent and I actually squeeled a little when our crib mattress was delivered.
This natural crib mattress is everything I hoped it would be! It’s innerspring foundation is covered with a natural coir fiber insulator that is made from sustainable and renewable coconut shells. A plant-based foam cushioning layer covers the coir fiber. A liquid proof damask cloth cover is on top, closest to the baby.
I think it is SO cool that the can make a totally awesome crib mattress from coconut shells and even more so that it has a water proof damask cover, because let’s face it, something wet is bound to get on the crib mattress and I would rather just wipe it up and not worry about it seeping into the mattress!
Colgate EcoSpring Ultra II Crib Mattress retails on Amazon for $229, I know that seems pricey but I actually feel good about what Princess Dot is sleeping on rather than trying to pretend that the bamboo and organic sheets I bought to top the crib were good enough and that alone makes the price tag seem not as significant.
