This Month’s Prize
EverTrue™ Cuddle Mattress
I had the chance to take a look at the EverTrue Cuddle mattress this month and I’m really impressed with all the comfort and safety features. I was also happy to learn that the company that makes the mattress, Colgate, has been focused entirely on making great kid’s mattresses since 1955. Founded by an Air Force Veteran, it continues to be family-owned and operated with the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the founders contributing to the business today.
Best of all, the mattress is made in the USA – there aren’t too many mattress companies that can boast about that these days. Of course, what is in the mattress is even more important than where it’s made. They happily provide details on how they put their quality mattresses together: waterproof cover, cotton batting for fire protection, recyclable material that promotes ventilation, eco-friendly plant-based foam, and cool gel memory foam on the toddler side. Toddlers love the comfortable memory foam side as it keeps them comfortable for sleeping through the night, something we all desire!
The bed has also earned many product certifications: CertiPUR-US, ISPA, GreenGuard, JPMA, and Consumer product safety commission, all providing me with an additional level of comfort that this is a safe product for my child.
Colgate has engineered their product to maximize comfort, safety, and proper safety spine alignment. The infant side is firm to prevent SIDs, while the toddler side’s cool gel memory foam is cozy and offers spine alignment and support. It has a waterproof cover built-in to make potty training less stressful. No more worrying about waking up to a urine-stained mattress! The design also enhances air circulation for sound sleep and it is safe for both babies and toddlers. Additionally, the natural cotton batting provides both comfort and fire protection. Something any parent can appreciate.
I’m a granola mom at heart so a mattress that is made of 100% recyclable material is a godsend. The firm plant-based oil eco-foam on the infant side, and the gel foam kept my toddler cool. Bonus points because it is lead and phthalates-free with green guard certification, meaning its certified low chemical emission standards. Did I mention it’s also hypoallergenic which is great for your little one with eczema or other allergies.
But I was most impressed by it being built with foam side rails that provide support and keep your little one from rolling off when he/she graduates up to a toddler bed. Too often we read about buying pool floaters to use under the sheet and they just move around. Colgate thought ahead and gave us the safety feature we needed!
Pressure relief technology and inverted seams prevent scratching a child’s sensitive skin – this type of seam also makes the bed more durable so that it can last for several years, and the air flow helps prevent your child from overheating.
I know that for my child, who suffers from sensitive skin, a product being hypoallergenic is an important part of my consideration process. He also gets very warm in the evenings so air flow is a lifesaver. The two-sided feature also extends the useful life of the mattress saving me money. Now I can use the mattress for 4 or 5 years instead of 1-2.
Lastly, this mattress is relatively light at 27 lbs. You will appreciate a manageable weight after changing sheets multiple times a day during potty training time.
