I received a family cradle from my parents. It meets a rigorous safety inspection. Now I need to find a mattress for it. My concern is that all the cradle pads are not firm at all. Everything says that you want a firm mattress for baby. Are there any firm mattresses for a cradle? Where can I find them? Has anyone used the regular pads that you find at Babiesrus,baby depot, etc? Are my worries about the mattress being too soft, legit?
Thanks for your help.

RE: cradle mattress
I'm in a similar situation -- my mom bought an old-fashioned cradle to keep in her part of the house (she lives with me). In looking for a cradle pad I decided to opt for the Colgate brand b/c it is top-recommended and what we bought for the crib. They offer cradle pads in a variety of sizes. Go to this link:
