Nursery progress and Newton Baby crib mattress review

If you've been following along with our house-selling and house-hunting journey, you know it was really hard for me that I couldn't work on our baby's nursery while I was pregnant! I think most new moms get to do that maybe halfway through the pregnancy? At that point in mine, we were living in my old bedroom at my parents' house with all of our stuff in a storage unit, and then when I was 7.5 months pregnant we moved into a 1-bedroom apartment, so still no nursery.

I found out about Newton Baby and their breathable, washable!, hypo-allergenic crib mattress way before I was ready to put together Otto's room. But I jumped on the opportunity to try it out and it sat in storage for months! Now we've put together his nursery and he sleeps on it every night and nap, and I'm so happy with it!

Newton Baby provided a mattress for review for this post.

I didn't know much about baby mattress options before motherhood, but I figured I'd want something free of harsh chemicals. That was about it. I hadn't done any of the research I have now about baby sleep and safety. Now, as a mom (and as Otto has started flipping over and sleeping on his belly a lot), I'm so glad that we have not only a hypoallergenic, nontoxic and non-off-gassing (Greenguard Gold Certified), latex-free mattress, we also have the most breathable one out there!

Tests showed that a baby gets 97% more air while breathing through a Newton Crib Mattress than on a traditional crib mattress. It's made of a spun recycled plastic, which sounds weird, but it feels like any comfortable mattress. This also means the ENTIRE thing is washable.

The cover zips off easily and is machine washable (they advise not using a sheet on top for the first 12 months, to keep it super breathable), and the core can be washed in the shower/bath! Pretty crazy!

The unique plastic material means it's also great for temperature regulation and bacteria build-up (see above--ALL washable!).

I am so glad we have this nice mattress for Otto to sleep on, and it's a great part of his work-in-progress nursery!

(Of course, in the name of safe sleep, these don't stay in his crib when he's sleeping!)
