Babies and sleep. Often times, the two don’t go together…especially when you are a new parent! Add the constant and ever-present risk of that scary acronym S.I.D.S., suffocation and the risks of putting your baby to sleep are almost too much for any parent to handle. When we pick a crib set for our new baby, we know that it needs to be firm and the area around the baby should be as clear as possible. Many of us have read about how fluffy, stuffed animals and other items inside the crib with the baby are a significant suffocation risk, but what about the actual mattress on which our little bundle of joy sleeps? What’s it made out of?

With many of these questions in mind, I would like to introduce you to the Newton Wovanaire® Crib Mattress. I was intrigued by Newton after reading that their mattress was not only breathable, washable and recyclable, but that it was made from 90% free air! I think that makes them the only mattress that can actually say that it’s like sleeping on air! Jenn and I had a chance to use this amazing mattress with our ten-month-old son and it was a hit! Here is a short video on what we did:

As you can see, the switch was super easy. We wish we would have had this mattress from the very start! Our son always woke up from his naps and overnight sleeps pretty warm, no matter how low we had the air conditioning. We never though that it could be the mattress. After just one night of restful sleep, he woke up cool as a cucumber! The core of the mattress is made of 10% food-grade polymer and is wrapped in a breathable, three-dimensional hypoallergenic fabric that provides comfort, prevents bacteria growth, and unzips for easy washing! There is no foam, latex, springs, glue or allergens in the mattress.

One of my favorite things about the Newton Wovanaire® Crib Mattress is that is was developed and created by a Dad! Michael Rothbard is a father of three and has a long career in providing sleep solutions. His goal with making this mattress was to help babies and their parents enjoy a smarter rest and he has done just that. In fact, the mattress has been deemed the “safest crib mattress” by the nation’s leading pediatricians, including Dr. Jim Sears, co-host of The Doctors.

You can find the Newton Wovanaire® Crib Mattress and many other Newton products at buy buy Baby, Giggle, Amazon and on Newton’s own website, It retails for $299.99, but Newton often times has neat little promotions and coupon codes, so be sure to follow Newton on Facebook and Twitter.
