In order to decide which mattress best suits you, let’s look at four key questions:
1. Does the mattress have a cover?

The Lullaby Earth, Naturepedic and Newton baby full crib mattresses all have a removable and washable cover so you can machine wash it and have it back on your mattress in no time! :)

2. Is the mattress breathable?

What does it mean when we say a mattress is breathable?

A mattress is said to be breathable when your baby is lying on his/her stomach and can still breathe easily. Breathable mattresses are designed to allow continuous airflow and are perfect for babies to sleep on once they start rolling onto the stomach in the middle of the night. 

Which mattresses are breathable?

The Lullaby Earth and Naturepedic full crib mattress have a breathable cover, while the Newton full crib mattress features both a breathable mattress and cover

3. What are the mattresses made of? Are these materials non-toxic?

ALL of the mattresses that we sell are certified to be safe for your baby! Read on to find out more.

What materials should your mattress not be made of?

PVC is found in some mattresses, which contains dangerous chemicals such as phthalates, lead, cadmium, and/or organotins, which are toxic to children. These can potentially seep through and evaporate into the air over time, posing unnecessary dangers to children.

GMOs stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. The use of GMOs in mattresses could include using cotton that is modified genetically or synthetic fibers for GMO sugarcane. GMOs have the possibility of certain negative side effects such as allergic reactions. 

 

What are the Lullaby Earth, Naturepedic and Newton Baby full crib mattresses made from?

The Lullaby Earth full crib mattress is made of food grade materials and has a removable and washable cover. 

The Naturepedic full crib mattress is made of organic cotton cover and has a breathable and waterproof cover made also of organic cotton. 

The Newton crib mattress is a mattress which not only features a fully breathable cover but also a fully breathable mattress! It is hypoallergenic, and it's Wovenaire core is 90% free-flowing air and 10% food-grade polymer. It includes a cover which is both removable and machine washable! 

All three mattresses are made without vinyl/ PVC and avoid the use of chemicals such as formaldehyde, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), pesticides, glues/adhesives, and GMOs. Additionally, all three mattresses are made without flame retardant chemicals or barriers.

Additional Things to Consider
What certifications do the mattresses have?

Which mattress would fit my full crib/ toddler best?

A super cool feature included in both the Lullaby Earth and Naturepedic full crib mattresses is that they include a dual-firmness feature which grows with your little one! One side is designed to be firmer for an infant and the other is more toddler-appropriate with some cushion! How useful is that?!
