Nook Pebble Lite
When Nook came out with its acclaimed, a bit exorbitant ($550 – youch!), Pebble mattress, parents were impressed but daunted. The Pebble is designed to allow maximum oxygen flow, which the company claims it fosters a better sleep and even cognitive development. Nook now has a Lite version at half the price that has the same pebble design and eco materials, including eucalyptus and nontoxic foam.
What to watch out for: The Lite does have an organic cover, but its core isn't organic like the original Pebble's. Also, the Lite is literally lighter than the original – 16 pounds versus 30 – which makes some parents question its support.
Available at Amazon starting at $295
Sealy Nature Couture Cotton Bliss Waterproof 2-Stage Toddler & Baby Crib Mattress
The main selling point of this mattress, besides the price, is its not-too-soft, not-too-hard firmness. This mattress contains organic cotton, tear-resistant, airflow pockets keep the mattress fresh, and made with organic cotton.
What to watch out for: Parents don't like the mattress's covering. The organic cotton is inside the mattress.
Available at Amazon starting at $129.99
LA Baby Eco Friendly 2 in 1 Soy Foam Crib Mattress
Parents say this is the hands-down best organic mattress for the money. The biggest draw, besides the organic cotton cover, is its two-sided design. One side is firmer for infants and babies; the other is softer for toddlers. The core coy is wrapped in natural coconut fiber for extra insulation.
What to watch out for: Some say the toddler side of the mattress sounded a little crunchy.

Naturepedic Organic Baby Crib Natural Mattress
Follows CPSC and pediatrician recommendations for firm support and a snug fit for a firm but comfortable sleep, the Naturepedic is a best seller because of its quality and all-natural ingredients.

Some parents report that the mattress looks as good as new two years later. Naturepedic is also said to have excellent customer service and will send a replacement no questions asked.
What to watch out for: There are a few complaints about a strange smell and lumpiness in the middle.
