Part of the Delta crib company, these mattresses are sold under several names: Beautyrest, Naturally, Black and more, but the bulk seem to be Beautyrest models. Most of the models are coil mattresses.

The most popular mattress from Simmons is the Beautyrest Beginnings Sleepy Whispers Ultra Deluxe 2 in 1 Crib and Toddler Mattress. Whew! Let’s just call it Sleepy Whispers for brevity’s sake. This coil mattress has 231 pocketed coil springs, extra corner support, 100% cotton fire protection (no chemicals used to make it fire resistant), and it’s GREENGUARD certified. This mattress retails for $175, although online it sells for as little as $139.

If you’re looking for something a little less expensive, the Beautyrest Studio Grand Dreams Infant & Toddler foam mattress sells at Walmart for $100. It comes with an eco-friendly organic blend cover that has a medical grade waterproof backing. It is GREENGUARD certified as well. We’re impressed with a mattress at this price level that has this certification. 

Two other foam mattresses are available from Simmons under the BeautySleep name: the Happy Nights and Sleep Whispers. They are both GREENGUARD certified again with cotton fire protection but the Sleep Whispers has a hypo-allerenic waterproof vinyl cover. Price: $90 for the Happy Nights and $124 for the Sleep Whispers. 

Overall feedback on this brand is mixed—the low-end mattresses (under $100) are often knocked for poor quality, but the more expensive units (like the Sleepy Whispers Ultra Deluxe above) get better marks. Complaints included seams that ripped and mattresses that arrived dirty or damaged.

Bottom line: there are better bets out there than Simmons.  Rating: C+
