Newton’s innovative crib mattress is made from 90% air volume and Wovenaire (a patented cushioning material), a combo that allows air to flow freely for optimal breathability and temperature regulation, and it’s completely safe, hypoallergenic, and doesn’t off-gas or leach. What’s really cool: your little one can smush their face up against it and breathe totally normally. The washable cover prevents bacteria growth – which means whatever happens in the crib, doesn’t stay in the crib, and the inner core can also be hand washed in the shower or bathtub!
We’ll admit a little naiveté about mattresses: when we were shopping for one pre-baby, we wondered, “Why does a mattress need to be organic? It’s not like our baby is going to EAT it.” We hadn’t considered that he’d be breathing chemicals that were off-gassing from it…. for 12+ hours a day. Naturepedic’s all-cotton organic mattresses are equipped with a waterproof cover that wipes clean, and parents rave about their outstanding customer service.
The Catch: It’s very firm (which is what you want for safety!) but some babies might not be into it.
Nothing about wrestling with a heavy mattress sounds appealing to anyone, but with Moonlight Slumber you won’t have to. It’s lightweight for easy sheet changing day or night. On top of that it’s also easy to clean with it’s medical grade nylon casing. It’s considered to be a “green” mattress made with high-quality medical grade foam and it’s PVC and Vinyl free. Featuring dual sided firmness crib mattress is cleverly designed to accommodate baby as they transition to the toddler phase with a simple flip of the mattress.
