Milliard crib mattress with dual comfort system Review
Your child’s sleep is essential for his development. While newborns and young babies need a firmer sleeping surface, toddlers enjoy in a soft and cozy sleeping space. That is why Milliard designed a baby crib mattress that offers both. With a dual comfort sleeping system, this Milliard’s crib mattress offers safeness and comfortability combined in one product.
Milliard’s dual comfort sleeping system must be flawless to make it worth your money! That’s why we have put the most attention on its two-stage feature during our review. And I can say we were not disappointed!

Dual comfort sleeping system review
Daul comfort sleeping system provides this baby crib mattress reversibility. The mattress is made of two separate layers, combined into one crib mattress. Those layers differ because of their different firmness.
At this moment I want to point out, that the following phrases mean the same crib mattress model.
- dual-sided crib mattress
- dual-firmness crib mattress
- crib mattress with a dual-comfort sleeping system
- two-stage baby crib mattress
- 2-in-1 crib mattress
The firmness of regular baby mattresses is meant solely for babies or only for toddlers. So, having everything combined in one is a big advantage for this dual-sided baby mattress.
But is the infant layer as safe as the mattresses designed solely for babies? Or do toddlers sleep on Milliard crib mattress with dual comfort system as well as on toddler mattresses?
In short, yes it is, and yes they do!
Both layers meet all safety and quality expectations, and can easily compete with the best one-sided crib or toddler mattresses. The mattress offers a perfect transition from a crib to the toddler bed.
While a foam layer on the infant side is extra firm, super supportive and safe, a toddler side made from memory foam ads the comfort all toddlers want.

Make sure you always set the crib mattress on the right side! Milliard crib mattress comes with the softer side for toddlers up. For use with infants and younger babies, you have to remove the cover, flip the mattress with firmer side facing up, and place the cover back on the mattress.
I am not sure why it doesn’t come with the firmer side up. It would be logical, as you first use it on that side, but the flipping is quick and easy, so it is not such a big deal.
Sometimes parents are worried that they won’t distinguish amongst two sides of the mattress. I don’t think you should worry about that!
The infant side is much firmer on the touch. But if you are not sure, unzip the cover and squeeze both sides of the mattress. The side that leaves an indention longer is the memory foam on the toddler side. The side that feels firmer and springs back right away is the infant side.
The structure and specifications of Milliard dual-sided crib mattress
Mattress size: 52″ long by 27,5″ wide
The thickness of the mattress: 5″
Mattress weight: 9,35 pounds
Age and weight limits:
- In theory, you can flip the mattress after your child starts to roll over and push up by himself, but I wouldn’t do it at least until he stands up. Not because of safety reasons, but because the firmer surface provides better support for your baby.
- There are no weight or age limits for this Milliard’s baby crib mattress. Your child can use it until he outgrows the toddler bed.
Structure of the mattress:
- washable cotton cover + leak-free waterproof lining
- woven, natural non-toxic fire barrier
- soft memory foam: older babies and toddlers love the plushness of the memory foam
- firmer foam: perfect for newborns and infants
Our review of other Milliards dual-firmness crib mattress features
I have already written what we think about its most distinguished features above, but check-up others as well.
According to Milliard, this baby crib mattress should have all the following features. To see if that is the truth, and to see how well they perform, we have reviewed them all!
- it has the right firmness for babies and toddlers
- it fits into all standard size cribs
- it has good breathability
- it is a durable mattress
- it has a quality cover
- it is waterproof and hypoallergenic
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’FIRMNESS and SUPPORT:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
We have done a simple home firmness test, which you can do too. Press on the mattress with one hand and observe what will happen. If it holds firm, and springs back quickly, it is firm enough.
The infant side springs back immediately, while on the toddler side we saw an impression. That is how it should be!
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’FITTING IN THE CRIB:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
Because it is a standard size crib mattress, it doesn’t fit into mini cribs, but it must fit into all standard, full-size cribs. Measurements of standard size cribs are set by the government, so all new models must correspond to them.
However, if you have an old crib, make sure the mattress fits into it perfectly. You can make a home fitting test. Place two fingers between the crib’ frame and mattress’s edge. It shouldn’t be more than two fingers space there.
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’BREATHABILITY and HEAT REGULATION:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
It is one of the most breathable crib mattresses on the market. It doesn’t have venting holes, and you shouldn’t search them on foam mattresses, as they don’t need them. The foam core provides good ventilation, so additional venting holes are needless.
However, for good air circulation and heat regulation, the mattress’s cover must be breathable too. Although the cover is waterproof, it’s also soft and super breathable.
Sufficient breathability increases the mattress’s comfort. Because it provides an excellent heat regulation, your baby won’t sweat during sleeping.
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’COMFORT:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
The infant side is firm and probably doesn’t feel comfortable to you. But I can assure you, that your newborn won’t miss the soft sleeping surface. Because it decreases the risk of SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome), that is how it should be!
The toddler’s side of the mattress is super comfortable and soft because of the specially designed memory foam. The memory foam is soft, but still with proper support for a perfect posture in your toddler’s back and neck.
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’BOUNCE:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]The Milliard dual comfort crib mattress is not bouncy at all. Your toddler can’t use it as a trampoline, like innerspring mattresses. It has just enough bounce for comfortable sleep, and that is how it should be.[/stextbox]
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’HYPOALLERGENIC:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
Milliard’s dual-sided mattress is naturally hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and resistant to allergens. It is an ideal choice for children who might suffer from allergy and asthma.
The waterproof cover is non-porous, so it keeps unwanted allergens, bacteria, dust mites, and mold from permeating the mattress.
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’DURABILITY:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]We couldn’t test it for a longer period of time, but we had asked numerous parents how well it performed. They claim it is very durable. It doesn’t lose shape, sag, or becomes too soft over time.[/stextbox]
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’Is the cover WATERPROOF?‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
Yes, it is! And let me tell you that we saw many poorly made waterproof covers during our baby crib mattress reviews. I am happy that this is not the case here!
The cover is manufactured from pure 100% natural cotton. It is multi-functional, with a soft quilted cotton face, and a vinyl-free waterproof backing to protect the mattress against accidents.
The inner side of the cover has an anti-slip layer which keeps it in the place.
If you experience problems placing it back on the mattress, that shouldn’t bother you. It’s actually great that it fits snugly, as that reduces wrinkles and bouncing during the sleep.
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’CLEANING:‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]After mild accidents, you can just wipe it with a damp cloth, but you can wash it in the washing machine too. We have tried, and it stayed undamaged and water-resistant.[/stextbox]
Safety of Milliard dual comfort baby crib mattress
It meets or even exceeds all required safety standards. It has a CertiPUR-US certificate which ensures all foam has been made without ozone depletes, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals. It tells you that the foam in the mattress is safe and of high quality.
Milliard dual-sided crib mattress is a safe choice for newborns, babies, and toddlers. Just make sure you always use it on the right side!
Natural fiberglass lining inside the mattress’s cover also meets all fire safety standards without using chemicals for safety in its purest form.
The mattress fits perfectly into standard size cribs and toddler beds, so there is no gap between the frame and edge of the mattress. But make a home fitting test if you use an older crib!
It costs few bucks more than other Milliard’s baby crib mattresses. But it certainly not belongs to the most expensive dual-sided baby crib mattresses on the market.
Milliard crib mattress with dual comfort sleeping system has a really good value for the price, as it can be the only mattress before the transition into an adult bed.
We certainly think it is worth the money! And not just because of the convertibility, but because it is a quality, safe, comfortable, and durable choice!
