Safety 1st Transitions Baby and Toddler Mattress Review

If you are looking for a crib mattress with two different levels of firmness (one for the infant side and the other for the toddler side) that comes with super firmness at a decent price tag, then this is the answer for you.

Considering that , Safety 1st is a trustworthy, globally renowned brand among the large community of parents, is also a plus.

Features That Left Us Impressed 

There were many things that I loved in the mattress. A few of them are explored in detail below:


I love how firm the mattress is. 

As I said, it comes with two different levels of firmness – a new feature for me. One of the sides of the mattress supports babies and the other side, toddlers. It can be used for a few years without having to invest in a new crib mattress. The toddler side has a little added cushion. This is great because my little one tends to sleep with his arms and legs spread out. 

Some of my friends complained that it was difficult for them to identify the toddler and infant sides. In fact, there are tags that tell you which side is meant for the baby and toddler. I could easily identify this by touching as the toddler side was slightly softer and the infant side was meant to be perfectly firm.

Meets Standards

The mattress comes with a host of regulatory standards that it has met. I also did small research on these standards and found that they were necessary to ensure toddler safety.

This mattress meets the Greenguard Gold certification as well as the ederal flammability standard 16 CFR 1633. That is, it is made  without the use of potentially harmful chemicals and, fits standard cribs and toddler beds perfectly. 

The above standards make sure that this mattress is free from potentially harmful chemicals making it highly safe for your kids.

Any mattress that does not give me the task of washing out stains is perfect! This particular one is great because you can simply wipe off any stains from juice spills with a cloth. A little sanitizer added to the mix could do you a world of good too.

Thankfully, the mattress is light and is quite easy to move around and flip when required. The foam used is quite durable. I would recommend it to parents who want to make a mattress investment that would last for a few years.


This is a standard size crib mattress that is compatible with most of the standard crib sizes.

It really fits so tight in my baby crib. You need to double-check the crib dimensions as well as the crib mattress dimensions before you buy. This mattress measures 52″L x 27.5″;W x 5.5″H .
