Top 3 Reasons

SafeSleep® is The Better Choice

A title

Image Box text


Safer Design 


  • The SafeSleep® crib mattress has no fill or core of any kind.  By design, it is filled with constant fee flowing air
  • The open-weave surface allows air to travel up and down without trapping harmful carbon dioxide.  Crib mattresses containing fiberfil, loose cores, quilted surfaces, have all been shown to trap harmful carbon dioxide.
  • The constant airflow keeps your baby’s core body temperature stable – not too hot and not too cold for a better, longer sleep.

Easier Washing & Sanitizing


  • SafeSleep® has no fill or plastic core to wash, so there is no bathtub or shower needed. 
  • The surface is easily removed for machine washing.  There is no reason to lift the mattress out of the crib for cleaning & sanitizing. 
  • The base is easily wiped clean while still in the crib.  Spit up can be easily wiped clean from the surface with a damp rag.
  • The SafeSleep® takes 10 minutes to completely dry.
  • The Newton® Crib Mattress takes 5-6 hours to completely dry.

No Viscose or FR’s


  • The SafeSleep® exceeds all crib mattress safety standards without the use of fire retardants (FR) or waterproofing chemicals. 
  • The open-weave cover allows liquids to pass through the SafeSleep® instead of pooling on the surface which can be dangerous. 
  • Newton®  Crib Mattress  uses a viscose layer for both waterproofing and as an FR.  Viscose is a water-repellent synthetic fiber, which allows heat to build up.

Breathable Crib Mattress

The objective data from breathe-through crib mattress by SafeSleep® is impressive for a solution to the problem of the infant who rolls during sleep.

The Back-to-Sleep Campaign has saved thousands of infants.  Using a firm, air-permeable crib mattress that allows oxygen to circulate is part of the safe infant sleeping environment.”

I Don’t Worry Now

This mattress is totally breathe through.  I tested it myself and can now sleep knowing he can breathe when he face plants.”

Best Crib Mattress to reduce SIDS risks

Babies can flip themselves face down, even if they were first positioned face up, as they should always be.  The face-down position is obviously hazardous. The whole purpose of a breathe-through mattress is to ensure that a baby can still get fresh air even when its nose rests directly on the sleep surface. 

The SafeSleep® design eliminates an important risk factor, and the developers are to be congratulated on their excellent work.”
