I purchased the Naturepedic mattress, but both my children didn’t appreciate the firmness of the mattress when they reached toddler-dom. In hindsight, I wished I purchased the dual firmness which means that you can flip the mattress over for a more cushion feel when they get older. Infants/babies under 12 months should always sleep on a firm surface to reduce the risk of SIDS. Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. There are numerous studies that indicate a firm mattress may reduce SIDS.
You can opt to use the same mattress as a toddler mattress. If this is the case, a dual firm crib mattress would be the best way to go so you’d get a firm side (under 12 months of age) and a cushiony side (over 12 months of age).
Here’s the list of the most non-toxic, chemical free crib/toddler mattresses:
