Portable crib mattresses

So I purchased a portable/mini crib. I read all the reviews and they all said that the pad that comes with it was horrible. So I am looking for a good mattress. Can anyone recommend a good portable crib mattress? Also, where did you get your bedding?

Re: Portable crib mattresses

Check to see if the manufacturer of your crib makes a 'real' mattress. We have the 'Emily' Mini crib made by Million Dollar Baby. The pad that comes with it would be ok for a night or two at Grandmas, but not for everynight. The 'real' mattress we bought from them fits great in our crib and is 5" thick. Sorry, I don't remember the price but I believe it was around $80?

As for bedding. There isn't much for choices out there. UNLESS you can sew!! My mother made a crib skirt and sheets for us. (we chose not to use bumpers or blankets). So for us, the sky was the limit. We are only limited to what fabrics we can find. So I think we have about 8 crib sheets that are a mix of jersey knit, cotton and flannel. If you don't sew or know anyone who can, maybe check out etsy?
