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!

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

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.
