Perfect Embrace 3-inch Mini Crib Mattress
Serta’s Perfect Embrace 3-inch Mini Crib Mattress was designed with your baby's health, safety, and comfort in mind. It delivers all the benefits of a full-sized crib mattress in the convenience of a smaller size to fit mini cribs and portable cribs. The fiber core made from recycled materials delivers a firm yet lightweight sleep space while the waterproof vinyl cover helps prevent mold, mildew and odor. Fits most mini and portable cribs (not designed for standard cribs or pack 'n plays).
The safest size of baby cribs and crib mattresses is determined by the federal government. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) requires all full-size baby crib mattresses to be at least 27 and ¼ inches in width by 51 and ¼ inches in length, with a maximum thickness of six inches. But for cribs, the standard size isn’t as simple.
The CPSC requires that full-size baby cribs have a standard width of 28 inches and a standard height of 52 and ⅜ inches, but with a “pull or minus factor” of ⅝ inches. Because of this variation, it’s important to look for the recommended mattress size listed on the crib’s box and/or assembly instructions.
Crib mattresses should fit very snug or moderately snug in the crib. No more than two fingers of space should exist between the side of the mattress and the crib frame. A mattress that is too small for the crib could be a suffocation and entrapment hazard.
The firmer, the better when it comes to crib mattresses. Soft surfaces can pose a suffocation hazard and increase your baby’s risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). You can test a how firm a mattress is by pressing on its center and edges. When you release pressure, it should snap back immediately.
