What exactly is an organic crib mattress? And why is it so confusing to shop for one? Yes, many crib mattress makers claim they are green, natural or eco-friendly . . . but which ones really are worth your hard-earned money? We put 11 different organic crib mattresses to the test, checking for firmness, construction and overall quality. Here are the winners.

What are the best bassinets for a bedside? We looked at several bassinets designed to sit right next to your bed, allowing easy access for nursing. Judged on ease of use, quality and affordability, we pick these bassinets as the best of the bunch. A quick safety note: some of these bassinets have fold-down sides. When baby is put down to sleep, we recommend having all the sides of a bassinet in the full, upright position. That prevents baby from rolling toward an open side and possibly becoming entrapped between the bassinet and an adult bed. Only use the included mattress in the bassinet—never add additional padding or bedding.
