Newton Crib Mattress Review- the Wovenaire is the best mattress for your baby that is 100% breathable! Perfect for First Time Moms who are worried about everything (that’s me!).
For my next review in the baby series, I’m diving into mattresses. Consider this another category that I put endless amounts of time into reading reviews and cross comparing products. This, like so many other baby products, resulted in Matthew physically removing my computer from my lap late night one day saying “That’s enough reviews for you today”. I’m obsessed.
Honest Newton Crib Mattress Review
Baby mattresses range widely in quality and price. They’re firm, they’re soft, they’re made out of this, they’re made out of that, they are waterproof, they soak up water, they’re $29, they’re $400, etc. I ended up getting the Newton Crib Mattress for our baby because it checked everything off that was a must have for me, most importantly: safety.
The Newton Wovenaire Crib Mattress is 100% breathable and uses the highest quality food-grade polymer extruded into a crystal clear pool of water. From there it creates a resilient three-dimensional shape that is 90% air by volume. What does this mean in regular words? It means it’s safe, cleaner and healthier for your baby. If you are worried about the baby rolling over in the middle of the night, this mattress is completely breathable. Tests have shown that babies can breathe right through the mattress which reduces risk of suffocation. Being a first time parent, this is something that worries me and I know will keep me up at night so having this reassurance definitely makes me feel better.
Safest Crib for Baby
Here’s my full Newton Crib Mattress Review video.
Once you remove the cover from the mattress (which is completely machine washable by the way) you can see the Wovenaire core is 90% air and 10% food-grade polymer. Look at how I can easily stick my finger through it. This means that the baby is going to be able to breathe right through it!
Besides the cover, the actual Wovenaire mattress can be washed by hand in the shower or tub. I love that both pieces can be completely washed!
The Newton mattress leaves out all the foam, latex, springs and glue common in other crib mattresses which means no off gassing, toxic chemicals or allergens.
The mattress comes in standard size and mini for mini cribs. I am using the standard size in our Babyletto Modo crib and it fits perfectly. (Pictured here with the Skip Hop cloud mobile).
You want to be sure to use a lightweight cotton muslin sheet for the mattress because if you use something heavy this would affect the breathability of the mattress which defeats the point.
The mattress is on the pricey side at $300 but I think the piece of mind you’ll receive from it is worth every penny. You can buy it at the Newton website, Amazon and BuyBuyBaby.
Hope you found my Newton Crib Mattress review helpful if you’re on the search for a mattress for your little one!
