My toddler finally sleeps in her crib now!!!
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2017
This Foam Mattress Topper is a game changer! I've co-slept since around 8 months. Trying to transition our toddler back into her crib since we moved has been a nightmare. She refused to sleep in her crib and would toss and turn and cry until we bought THIS!
We bought the sleep easy solution book, this foam mattress topper, and moved her crib to our room. Then we transitioned the crib into a toddler bed and added this 2" Topper. From day one, she (18 months old) laid down in her toddler bed like a big girl and has gone to bed in her big girl bed ever since. I even lay down next to her and have fallen asleep myself because it's more comfortable then our own mattress.
Since it's on the softer side, I do not recommend this for infants as they need a firm sleep surface for safety reasons. However, once our toddler seemed like she could handle a small toddler pillow, we felt she was ready for a softer mattress. We also bought the American Baby Company Heavenly Soft Chenille Crib Sheet and it fits over the mattress plus this foam mattress Topper and this combo made all the difference for our daughter.
The mattress topper comes rolled up inside a plastic sleeve, inside a box. Upon opening, I didn't smell anything. Once I pressed my face into the mattress topper, I could then smell a slight odor. I unrolled the Topper and let it "air out" for a day. The smell was completely gone and we put it on top of the mattress at that point. Overall, I highly recommend this mattress topper for any toddler who is ready for a softer, more comfortable bed.
I've included pictures of my 18 month old standing on top of the foam mattress topper over her crib mattress to show the amount of "give" and softness of this topper. If you found this review helpful, please let me know. Thank you
