And the Winner Is: Newton Baby Crib Mattress

When you’re a new parent, you dream about sleep—literally. And you’ll do everything in your power to ensure little one gets some solid zzz’s. This tall order starts with setting up a comfortable and safe sleep space. While you might not think twice about the mattress you buy for your own bed, you’re sure to obsess over the one you get for your baby’s crib. You want one that’s safe, supportive and easy to clean—because, babies! The original Newton Baby Crib Mattress has been our go-to for years, and with good reason. Made from 90 percent air (yes, air), it’s super-light and ultra-breathable, meaning it helps reduce the risk of suffocation. What’s more, it’s hypoallergenic, recyclable and free of the junk you’ll find in so many other mattresses (we’re talking dubious materials like latex, foam and glue). And did we mention that you can wash the entire mattress? Just unzip the cover and throw the whole thing into the bathtub for a little soak. (It sure beats scrubbing!)

What We Love

  • Newton’s Breath-Thru Technology allows baby to breathe right the mattress, reducing the risk of suffocation and giving you peace of mind

  • It’s the only fully washable crib mattress. Foam-, glue-, latex- and spring-free, the original Newton mattress is also hypoallergenic

  • At 5.5” thick, the original Newton mattress offers the ideal level of firmness and support for infants and toddlers, meaning you’ll use it for years to come

“This crib mattress is unparalleled in my opinion. The breathability and air flow helped me breathe easier in the early newborn days—and the washability of the mattress has come in handy more times than I care to count.” - Lauren Barth, senior editor at The Bump
