We are really happy with this bed! We were concerned about all of the chemicals in standard mattresses, but we couldn't pay an arm and a leg for a green mattress. This bed seemed like the perfect compromise. It was equally as important for us to find a comfortable bed, because our son is picky about where he sleeps. This bed is great! It is comfortable, but it is still firm enough that I'm not concerned about a one year old sleeping on it (I've even spent a few nights on it, and even though I like a soft bed, I can't complain).
