Dual Firmness Mattress
A crib mattress is more than a sleep surface.
Selecting the right crib mattress is as critical as choosing the right car seat.
Why? Because a crib mattress is more than simply a sleep surface. It’s a growth and development center. Your baby will be spending 70% of his or her time sleeping during that first year.

Multi-layered Dual Firmness Design
The Eco Classica III's Dual Firmness (dual zone) design allows you to easily flip the mattress as your child transitions to the toddler stage.
Your infant will sleep on the firmer side. While this may not seem like it would be comfortable to you, infants need a firm, flat, even sleeping surface to maximize their development, strengthen their muscles, and ensure breathability in the crib. Babies need resistance and a firm surface to push up, turn and eventually stand up on.
Once they start to transition to a toddler, you can flip to the softer side of the mattress. This provides greater comfort for your toddler, while maintaining the level of safety that Colgate is committed to providing.
What is the Standard Crib Mattress Size?
Two Finger Test
The goal is to have the crib mattress fit either very snug or moderately snug in the crib. A good rule of thumb is that no more than two fingers of space should exist between the side of the mattress and the crib frame. Any more than that, the crib mattress is too small and could be a suffocation and entrapment hazard.
Snug = Safe
The Federal government regulates the size for all standard crib mattresses via the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA).
The minimum size is 27 1/4 inch x 51 5/8 inch with a thickness not exceeding 6 inches.
