Thankfully for now, we're still thinking about baby stuff. I'll enjoy this sweet time in his life as long as I possibly can. But my goodness, there sure is a lot of stuff to buy! Which is one reason I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a review for CSN Stores. I think by now, we all know about this awesome website (and if you don't, you should!) that has pretty much anything you could want for your home, pets, baby... the list is almost endless.
I knew I'd do the review on a baby-related item since that's pretty much all I'm buying these days and after some deliberation I decided to get our crib mattress. Then, after some research and more deliberation, I settled on the Serta Nightstar Extra Firm Crib Mattress. I know nothing about what kind of mattress is best for a crib, besides the fact that it needs to be firm. I chose this one because I trust the brand, it had great reviews on different websites and it seemed like a good value for the price. Also, I cannot tell a lie, it has the cute little Serta sheep printed on it, which basically sealed the deal for me ;-)
So far, I couldn't be happier with my choice! Of course shipping was quick and easy, as it always is with CSN. It's the perfect size for the crib (no gaps around the edges) and the sheets we chose fit nicely. One feature I really like is that it has a vinyl cover which can be easily wiped down, as I'm sure will be necessary quite a few times. It also comes with a 25 year warranty, which is always nice. Although I can't comment on the durability of the mattress since we haven't actually used it yet, it does seem really promising. So far, so good, and I would feel comfortable recommending this product to other parents looking for a crib mattress.
And because CSN is so awesome, they not only gave me a $45 gift code to use toward an item to review (I paid the balance on the mattress), they also gave me another $45 code to give away! And this code can be used at any of their 200+ stores! I guarantee you'll be able to find something you love or need. If you don't believe me, go browse around their site for a while and then when you're convinced, come back here and enter!
I like to keep giveaways simple, so all you have to do is comment on this post and ask to be entered! I'd prefer that entries only come from followers of my blog, because I like to reward y'all once in a while for putting up with my babbling :-) I'll pick a winner on March 27th or 28th (with my sporadic posting schedule lately, I figure I need to leave myself some flexibility). I can only accept entries from the US or Canada since those are the only countries CSN ships to at this point. If I can't get to your email by replying to your comment, please be sure to include your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you win. You don't have to have a blog to enter but, again, let me know your email address or make sure I know how to contact you.
So let me know if you want to be entered and good luck!
