The time had come: She was officially transitioning out of the bassinet and into her Big Girl Crib.™ My feelings on already reaching yet another milestone aside, it was a big deal, one that needed a big mattress to go with it. And when the Newton Baby Crib Mattress popped onto my radar, it almost seemed too good to be true. I had to try it.
It had every safety feature I was looking for in a crib mattress. It was almost like they were inside my baby-safety-anxiety-filled brain. For starters, it’s breathable, made from the brand’s patented Wovenaire material, which is this 90 percent air, 10 percent food-grade polymer filling that looks like a tangle of noodles. The Breathe-Thru Technology allows for the highest level of airflow so babies can breath and sleep safely. And, in a study done by an independent third party lab, Newton was found to be 17x more breathable than its competitors with a 97 percent lower suffocation risk.
It’s also chemical-free. The viscose cover that incapsulates the Wovenaire Core is natural, breathable and even machine-washable (you can just toss it in the bathtub and give it a good scrub). It’s Greenguard-Gold Certified, and it exceeds the highest industry emissions safety standards.
