Colgate Mattress has been announced the official recipient of the Best of Year 2018 Award by Reviewed.com, a part of USA TODAY Tech - the most comprehensive source for unbiased, trustworthy and lab-tested reviews! Reviewed.com editors named the Colgate Eco Classica III “Best Crib Mattress” in the Parenting Products category.
Since 1955, Colgate has worked tirelessly to earn the trust of parents and along the way we’ve been recognized by industry groups and consumer product organizations for producing the highest quality crib mattresses available. While the health and safety of your baby is our primary focus, we are honored by these recognitions.
The Colgate Eco Classica III will be prominently featured on Reviewed.com, USATODAY.com, and the entire USA TODAY Network throughout the holiday shopping season. You can read Reviewed.com’s full review below.
Amongst all the crib mattresses we tested, the Colgate Eco Classica III performed the best. It is both CertiPUR-US and Greenguard Gold certified, which means it comes out of the package with very little smell, and the smell it does have is somewhat earthy and not unpleasant. These certifications also mean, of course, that the mattress is considered to emit very low levels (if any) of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). That’s a plus because nobody wants their baby breathing in that business all night.
The Eco Classica III is also a dual-sided mattress, so it's a good combination of safety and comfort from birth through toddlerhood. The infant side is firm without feeling too hard for comfort, while the toddler side has just enough give without being too soft. The edges are squared instead of rounded, which makes for a secure crib fit. While it may protect the mattress itself from liquids, the cover soaks them up and stained terribly in our tests. The fact that you can’t remove and wash the cover feels like a glaring design flaw, but top it with a mattress protector, and it’s a great mattress.
