Mattress for Ikea Crib?

I know the Ikea cribs are pretty popular... did you buy an Ikea mattress or a different brand?  I really want to use the Simmons Comforpedic that is a harder infant mattress on one side and a little softer on the other for use as a toddler bed, but it looks like it might be slightly too big for the Ikea crib.  So many things to figure out and the weeks are flying by!

    We got Colgate Classica III mattresses for our Gulliver cribs and they fit perfectly.  They are foam mattresses with one firmer side and one softer side.  I love that they are foam because they are lighter than traditional spring mattresses which makes it easier to changes sheets and such.

    We just purchased our Ikea crib last week and we went ahead and purchased an Ikea mattress as well.  I wanted to make sure we got one that fit.  I tried to get one of the firmer mattress' with springs because I'm nervous about a super soft mattress.  

    We purchased the Vyssa Vackert.

    check the measurments.  Ikea cribs take standard mattresses- but not all standard mattresses are the same size - i learned this the hard way when i got 2 that were too small for the Ikea crib and had to return.

    we got the Safety 1st at Walmart that cost $40 each.... they fit great and are super firm, just like the $$$$ one we got DS1 from BBB.

    We bought Simmons (coil) mattresses (don't remember the exact one).  They fit perfectly in the Gulliver cribs.
