From The Manufacturer

When you are the best-seller at Moonlight Slumber, when parent reviews make you acclaimed on the internet, and when you win numerous industry awards, people sit up and take notice. When you do all this and are “A” rated by Baby Bargains and earn a Cribsie Award finalist position for healthiest crib mattress, what do babies do? Nothing, they just snuggle back to sleep. Because that is the whole point of a crib mattress! We love the praise, but the best advertising we receive are the thousands of soundly sleeping infants resting on Little Dreamer mattresses each night. Are you looking for a crib mattress? For this combination of price and features, it would be hard to beat a Little Dreamer. One of our most popular models, Little Dreamer mattresses are affordable, antimicrobial, and comfortable for little dreamers and their parents. The Little Dreamer is a two-stage sleep system offering an extra firm layer foam infused with plant oils on the infant side and a softer, plush side foam (also infused with plant oils) for toddlers. The entire 5″ deep mattress is wrapped in a woven fire barrier with no spray-on FR chemicals and enclosed in a medical quality, water-, stain- and odor-resistant deluxe fabric. The finishing touch is an optional Moonlight Slumber logo’d celery green colored ribbon, waterproof ribbon denoting its quality and origin as a Moonlight Slumber Specialty Crib Mattress. No ribbon on twin and full models.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Its dual-sided design offers an extra-firm mattress for infants, which you can flip over at around 10 months to a slightly less firm and more comfortable side for toddlers.
Reversible and easy to flip to the "toddler" side for additional support as your baby grows.
You and baby can breathe easy knowing that this mattress is non-toxic and free of PVC, phthalates, lead, antimony and fire retardant chemicals.
The eco-friendly foam is infused with plant oils, and the mattress is covered in waterproof, medical-grade fabric, certified to contain no toxic flame-retardant chemicals.
The Little Dreamer has squared edges, and the fit was snug in each crib we put it in.
In our testing, this mattress fits our (DaVinci) crib like a glove, and the squared corners are awesome, filling all the extra space.
Dual sided for baby and toddler use – Consensus nice and firm for baby – Easy to clean waterproof covering – Good fit on standard cribs.

What reviewers didn't like

It's the most expensive model on our shortlist, but it's also a sound investement for the infant to toddler stages.
The Little Dreamer lacks the bells and whistles like the Pebble Pure’s coconut coir interior, or the Lullaby Earth’s removable cover.
In our testing, we found the smell (off-gassing) a bit stronger than the others (other than the Simmons, below), but within a couple days it was either gone or unnoticeable.
Expensive versus competing brands – Complaint about length not matching mfg specs (though others verify snug fit for most cribs)
