Your Child Will Sleep Better with a Quality Baby Crib Mattress

The purchase of a Simmons crib mattress shouldn't be ignored. In the excitement of a new baby, many parents forget that the design of the mattress is just as important as the design of the crib.

In fact, is just as important for an infant to have the very best crib mattress as it is for an adult to have a quality bed. While babies are known for waking up in the middle of the night, you might be able to help your baby sleep better if they are sleeping on a surface that is supportive and comfortable.

Just like adults, babies can benefit from a sleeping surface that supports their bodies and doesn't give them any joint pain. We may assume that babies wake up because they are hungry or wet, but an uncomfortable crib mattress can also be part of the problem.

If you choose a Simmons crib mattress for your baby's crib, know that you are choosing a trusted brand that has lulled children of all ages off to sleep for years. Today, Simmons crib mattresses are not only comfortable but they also come with special features that help your child to stay rested and healthy.

Simmons Crib Mattress Lines

There are two different lines of Simmons crib mattresses, Beautyrest Beginnings and Slumber Time. Each offers a different sleeping experience. While you don't yet know the individual sleeping preference of your child, start by choosing a mattress that you find comfortable.

The Beautyrest Beginnings line of mattresses are made to provide your baby with firm support into his or her toddler years. The mattress is made of interlocking coils to provide a firm sleeping surface.

This Simmons crib mattress also has extra side support to uphold the shape of the mattress. This not only makes the mattress more comfortable, but it reduces the risk that your baby could slide between the mattress and the crib during the night.

The surface of the Beautyrest is treated to prevent mattress stains from forming. It is also vented at the sides so that any odors can be vented away. The price of these models is about $200, a little steep for something that will be used for only a few years.

The other Simmons crib mattress is the Slumber Time model. This is unique in that there are two sides to this mattress. On one side is a softer surface to help your baby sleep. Then, as your child grows older, you can flip to a firmer toddler size. This is a better deal, as you can get this mattress for about $70.

The Slumber Time also works to extend the life of your mattress by having a high coil density and the same continuous band that is also found on the Beautyrest. The Slumber Time is covered on both sides by a layer of supportive foam for added comfort.

If you feel that your baby might benefit from the support that only memory foam can provide, the Beautyrest gives you an option for a memory foam topper to their mattress. However, many pediatricians warn against using memory foam for babies. They say to wait until their toddler years.

The choices that are offered by Simmons crib mattresses should make shopping for a baby crib mattress quite easy. Take a look at this easy checklist before going to the store.

Simmons Beautyrest Beginnings


  • firm sleeping surface and solid sides to reduce risk of suffocation
  • treated and vented to prevent stains and odors


  • expensive and can only be used for a few years

Simmons Slumber Time


  • has two separate firmness sides for use through toddler years
  • less expensive than Beautyrest
  • foam top can break down and trap odors

While Simmons products should be trusted to provide a high quality sleeping surface for your child, you should check with a pediatrician or an in store expert to figure out which mattress is best for your new baby.
