arms reach co-sleeper mattress question

is it very comfy? I thought I read somewhere they are very thin. Just wondering because I am considering buying one and wanted to know if I will need a new mattress. Also, can anyone tell me how high the mattress comes up? Thanks!

The mattress is not very comfortable at all and thin. Kind of like a cheap pack-n-play mattress.

I don't think they are super...the mattress is the same at a pack and play mattress.

Have you tried their website? I think they have all sorts of accessories for those.

FWIW, we used ours until dd grew out of it and the mattress seemed fine. It is thin, but dd didn't care. She still sleeps in a Pack N Play on the same type of mattress.

The mattress is thin but our DD didn't have any problem with it. We bought a "plush" kind of velour sheet made for the co-sleeper. Still thin enough to be safe but warms it up a little I think. We also purchased the arm's reach mattress pad but when it arrived it was so thin it wouldn't have helped anyways, so I returned it and wouldn't recommend that at all!

I did look at the website and an organic mattress (which is all they have) is like 120, which I am not willing to spend, lol.

Re: arms reach co-sleeper mattress question

We got an organic mattress to fit our co-sleeper, but I didn't buy it through Arm's Reach. I can't remember how expensive it was, but it was less than $120. It's really nice and fits perfectly. I just did a google search for organic crib mattresses to find one.
