Newton's innovative crib mattress is made from 90% air volume and Wovenaire (a patented cushioning material), a combo that allows air to flow freely for optimal breathability and temperature regulation, and it’s completely safe, hypoallergenic, and doesn’t off-gas or leach. What's really cool: your little one can smush their face up against it and breathe totally normally. The washable cover prevents bacteria growth – which means whatever happens in the crib, doesn’t stay in the crib, and the inner core can also be hand washed in the shower or bathtub!

  • Bought this for the breathability to help prevent SIDS, but the removable cover was a lifesaver because our baby spit up A LOT while sleeping for the first few months so we had to frequently wash it Sep 04, 2018

    Purchased as I liked the breathability and ability to wash both the cover and mattress itself. Liked that it was a non-toxic alternative to other crib mattresses. Aug 30, 2018

  • I both love and regret this purchase. The baby sleeps 12+ hours with no wake ups! However, he wakes up with red chapped cheeks even though I use a fitted sheet. No help from Newton yet Aug 29, 2018

  • I both love and regret this purchase. The baby sleeps 12+ hours with no wake ups! However, he wakes up with red chapped cheeks even though I use a fitted sheet. No help from Newton yet :( Aug 29, 2018

  • I love that I do not have to worry about my baby rolling over in the night since it is breathable or about off gassing that can occur with many typical mattresses. Jul 21, 2018

  • While my little is still keeping in his bassinet next to our bed, we have laid him down in his crib for naps and he naps like a champ! This mattress is wonderful. Breathability assures parents! Jul 06, 2018

  • This mattress gives me a peace of mind for my stomach sleeper! Jul 03, 2018

    The cover to this is comfy,but we use a muslin sheet on top that's breathable just for added comfort. We sleep better knowing he's on this,plus our baby's hot natured so air mattresses are great! Apr 18, 2018

  • We wanted an eco friendly mattress and I love that she can breath through it. since she is a belly sleeper (and sleeps face down sometimes) it was well worth the additional cost. Apr 09, 2018

  • This mattress is ultra-safe and breathable, easy to wash, and super comfortable (I would sleep on it!) Baby loves the extra comfort and I love that I can sleep with some peace of mind. Feb 13, 2018

  • My son was sick with the flu at 13 months. It was awesome being able to unzip the cover and put in our shower to rinse with cold water!!! Feb 13, 2018

  • I got this mattress for the piece of mind knowing that it's fully breathable. It's lightweight and firm. The cover comes off for washing and for big messes the entire mattress can be washed. Jan 19, 2018

  • The piece of mind was worth every dollar we spent on this mattress. You had better believe the first thing I did when I got it was lay face mashed into it and attempt to breath. I could without effort Aug 24, 2017

  • A bit more expensive than others on the market but so worthwhile- I am less terrified when baby is sleeping on her belly with this totally breathable mattress. Jul 12, 2017

    WORTH THE MONEY! My daughter sleeps soundly in her crib since night one. Upon opening, there were not any smells. I love how you can spray it down easily in your bathtub! Feb 18, 2017

  • I''m a freak about safe sleep. This gives me peace of mind when I look on the monitor and my lo has buried her face in the mattress (again) Oct 23, 2016

  • From

    The Newton Crib Mattress was developed by Michael Rothbard, a father to three young children and experienced entrepreneur in the area of sleep solutions.

    As a new father with the same concerns for safety and better sleep that every parent faces, Michael decided to set out to make a safer and more comfortable crib mattress. This goal was achieved with the discovery of Wovenaire, a patented comfort fill that allows air to circulate freely, making Newton the first first fully breathable, washable and recyclable crib mattress.

Everyone
  • Q: I understand middle-of-the-night leaks are common. Would I need to clean the mattress itself in the middle of the night + wait 2-6 hours for it to dry (or spend money on a duplicate mattress), or does the mattress cover catch most leaks? Do leaks reach below the crib? What do owners end up doing?

    asked by Secretly Expecting - Dec 19, 2015

  • You can definitely put a waterproof cover on it, but that'll limit its breathability. When we've had middle-of-the-night issues (vomiting baby, etc.) we just put her in the travel crib for the rest of the night. We only rarely have needed to do that though.

    Allyson D. - Dec 19, 2015

  • Most parents are finding that event the biggest leaks and messes are not going through to the core. We have made the cover water resistant, easy to remove, and completely machine washable. We also sell additional covers, so that you can simply change the cover in much the same way that you would a sheet, and have your little one sleeping soundly in no time.

    Newton Rest . - Dec 22, 2015

  • Q: How firm is this mattress since it's ~90% air and 10% wovenaire? Also what's the feedback compared to: a. Colgate Eco Classica III b. Moonlight Slumber Little Dreamer Dual Firmness All Foam Crib Mattress Thanks!

    asked by Secretly Expecting - Aug 31, 2015

  • It's firm enough to be safe but cushy enough for a picky baby. (My daughter howled when we put her on really firm organic mattresses, but she loves this one.)

    Allyson D. - Sep 01, 2015

  • Newton crib mattress is firm enough for your baby's health and growth, with the comfort that they want. Newton has passed all firmness requirements for ASTM standards, while displaying comfort and superior breathability benefits.

    a.) The Colgate Eco Classica III is a foam core mattress that has a rayon and plastic waterproof coating. Foam normally is a heat conductor, and does not allow for great air flow or circulation, and the water proof covering makes the product completely air tight. The Newton Crib mattress you can literally breathe through. Specifically designed to allow air flow through the mattress to avoid sweaty backs and overheating, Newton also allows for superior breathability, giving your child a the perfect temperature for sleeping conditions as well as unsurpassed safety.

    b.) Moonlight Slumber Little Dreamer Dual Firmness is also a foam based mattress that is encased in a water proof barrier. With foam mattresses there is little air flow, and the waterproofing encasement limits any breathability of the mattress. Newton combats sweaty backs and overheating by allowing maximum air flow through the mattress.
