According to the declaration, Graco Premium foam crib and toddler mattress has everything that a quality and safe baby mattress should have. But, Graco Premium is such an affordable baby crib mattress, that it raises the question if all its features are as good as they should be.

So we were eager to find out if it is good enough to fulfill our expectations, and if we can place it side by side to some really good baby crib mattresses we have already reviewed.

Are there problems with Graco Premium foam crib and toddler mattress decompression or not?
If I say that there was never a problem with the mattress expansion, you would know it’s a lie. Only because we didn’t notice this problem, that doesn’t mean it can’t occur.
If the problem occurs, that is usually on mattress’s corners. Sometimes one of the corners doesn’t fully decompress. To aid in the mattress expansion fluff the affected areas similar to a pillow, and it should be fine.
However, the same as with any product on the market, you can be the unlucky one who gets a product with a defect. That is why it is nice to know that Graco Premium foam crib and toddler bed mattress came with a 6-year limited warranty.
For optimal convenience, Graco Premium foam crib and toddler bed mattress ships compressed in a lightweight, easy-to-carry box. It is a self-expanding mattress, but for the optimal performance, you must follow the provided instructions.
First of all, unroll your Graco Premium mattress within two weeks of purchase. Remove the plastic wrapping and place it on a clean and flat surface, in a well-ventilated room. That is it. Now just wait that the mattress expands on proper size.
Although the mattress expands into its normal shape almost immediately after unpacking, you have to give it a decent amount of time to fully expand before the use. Graco states you should wait 48 to 72 hours, but we recommend leaving it unused at least for one week.
Not only you will be sure it has fully expanded, but you will also get rid of any possible initial odor.
Crib mattress safety
Graco Premium foam crib and toddler bed mattress is GREENGUARD Gold certified. This certification ensures that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.
The mattress is free of prohibited phthalates, lead, and mercury. It also meets all applicable federal flammability standards.
Graco Premium is not an organic crib mattress, but it is made using only safe materials.
The mattress is designed to make your child sleeping environment as safe as possible, and its low price doesn’t compromise its safety at all!
For the price you are paying, Graco Premium foam crib and toddler bed mattress offers many useful features. It is also a safe mattress which grows with your child.
But let’s be realistic. Graco Premium foam crib and toddler bed mattress is a classic example of “you get what you paid for”. It is a good mattress, especially comparing to its price, but you can’t expect the quality of a high budget crib mattresses.
