Baby Safety Month
September is Baby Safety Month so for this blog entry we’re going to focus solely on creating the very safest sleep environment for your baby. When you consider that infants spend more than 16 hours a day in their crib, safety and comfort is a huge concern. Not all crib mattresses and sheets are safe, and there is some misleading information out there.
Last year, nursery products were blamed for roughly 75,000 injuries in children under age 5. And cribs are near the top of the list, causing 12,500 annually. Research studies show the main problem is extra bedding in the crib, which can lead to suffocation. I know, it’s hard to believe that cute little blanket your best friend gave you isn’t safe for your baby! Unfortunately numbers don’t lie, and your baby’s safety is paramount.
That’s why QuickZip has teamed up with the pioneering crib mattress manufacturer called Colgate on a fabulous shopping spree for one lucky winner. Shop from a variety of premium crib products, including our own Sweet Dreams Sheet Collection, Colgate’s Eco Classica I, and much, much more.

About Colgate Mattress
Colgate was founded in 1955 by Sol and Anne Wolkin with a $1,500 loan from Sol’s brother. All of Colgate’s mattresses are made right here in the US. Over the past 62 years, they’ve grown from a small 4,000 square foot factory to their current 60,000 square feet in the historic Cabbagetown Georgia. Colgate was founded on the values of integrity, loyalty and honesty and Sol and Anne passed these principals onto their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The company is still owned and operated by the Wolkin family.
Colgate was the first in the crib mattress industry to manufacture:
- A dual-firmness mattress, which is a lightweight so it’s easier to lift
- A foam mattress, which features a firm side for infants and a slightly softer side for toddler comfort
- A mattress using organic materials, including using coconut coir, organic cotton and other plant-based materials

They are made with the latest technology, eco-friendly materials and are GREENGUARD® Gold and CertiPUR-US® certified safe.
