When I became a Mom four years ago to our sweet baby girl, I had read every book, re read every magazine article and asked hundreds of questions to doctors, nurses and friends who were already parents. I truly thought I knew it all.
What reality was that again? Oh wait- it isn’t at all! One of the things I remember being most worried about was when Lily began to roll over in her crib. I kept thinking of horrible thoughts of her not being able to breathe if her head was face down on her mattress. We didn’t realize at the time that there was a better solution out there!
When I was researching about baby mattresses, they range widely in quality and price. They have firm ones, soft ones, made out of this and that, waterproof and can be a hefty price tag! The most important thing to me when looking at a mattress; safety! That is where Newton Crib Mattress comes into play.
The Newton Crib Mattress is 100% breathable and uses the highest quality food-grade polymer extruded into a crystal clear pool of water. It creates a resilient three-dimensional shape that is 90% air by volume. You have no idea what I just aid right? Basically it means that it’s cleaner, healthier and over all safe for your baby. As a worrier about your baby rolling over in the middle of the night- this mattress is completely breathable! Tests have been shown that babies can breathe right through the mattress which greatly reduces the risk of suffocation.
Now I know what you’re also thinking- my child is going to sleep on this mattress without a cover? But you’re in luck because the mattress cover is completely washable! It goes directly into the wash and the core can be sprayed down in the shower or tub for a completely hygienic crib environment. It’s only 11lbs and incredibly convenient for new Moms or grandparents trying to change out sheets or clean up a mess ( like when Landon was sick last week! ) I do put on a a light sheet for comfort. You want to make sure that your sheet isn’t a heavy material so it defeats the purpose of having the mattress.
I also love that it’s free of chemicals and toxins and has no off-gassing. The mattress design itself has a unique longevity- it’s firm enough for my little guy but also has a bit of cushion for when he continues to grow. It is around $300 but in my opinion you can’t put a price on safety for your child.
