So we have a special announcementI am expecting a baby here this summer andso we're pretty excitedWe are because of this we're gonna change gears a little bit with our reviews typically if we review anything for kidsIt's been things for kids were a little bit older our kids are 6 and 9And now we're gonna start reviewing some things for babies.
First we have disclosures.
We were sent the Newton baby mattress for this review, but we are not paid to do this reviewBut if you decide that you want to purchase this mattress to look into it we ask you please do use our link because ithelps to support our channel, and if you decide to use our link it is www.
com/babymattress The NewtonBaby mattress comes in two sizes it has the mini size for bassinets and smaller things like that and it has the standard which fitsIn the standard crib.
So onto the video.
We're going to reveal the top 3 reasons that you'll want to love this unique baby mattressReason #3 this mattress is reusable and recyclable.
So this mattressreally is built to last which means it will make it well through your child into the toddler years and can be handed down tothe next child or a friend.
It really is built for durability and to last.
Plus this mattress is recyclableSo we're not filling our landfills with big unrecyclable mattressesbut the fact that this mattress is reusable andrecyclable isn't even the coolest thing about this mattress and coming in at #2This is a safe mattress that doesn't have harmful chemicals.
Nowthat's really important because a lot ofmattresses are made with a lot with chemicals and glues and it has off gassing and things like thatso if you don't know what off gassing is sometimes when you buy a brand-new mattress especially a mattress in a box you get asmell that comes with the mattress and you have to air it out for days sometimes even a few weeksI think this is a particularly important point because we're talking about our newborn or a little teeny tiny infant.
Ifor one don't want my kids sleeping on a mattress my baby sleeping on a mattress that is releasingsmells whether they say it's toxic or not they say it's not Ijust don't want that for my kids so when we pulled this mattress out of the boxstraight off the first thing we did was smelled it and not a thingIncredible that's not a smell.
And the cover that comes in a separate bag.
It actually has a tiny smellI wouldn't even call it off gassing at all so the mattress itself is made ofLDPE great for plastic what that means is it's a food grade plasticThat's used in milk cartons, and there are no safety concerns with this type of plastic.
Infants spend 50-0% percent of their daysasleep.
I know they tell you to but you can't.
So they're gonna spend a lot of time on their mattress.
The Newton crib mattresscontains no foam or latex.
It's GREENGUARDgold certifiedWhich means it has no off-gassing toxic chemicals orallergens.
We did a little bit of research aboutallergens and babies.
According to research reported in the Environmental Science and Technology that new crib mattresses are these about 4x as manyvolatile chemicals as old crib mattress mattresses.
You'd think it gets betterbut they gotten worse.
Body heat increases emissions chemical emissions are strongest in the sleeping infants immediate breathing zoneSo just right around where they're breathing in that's where the strongest submissions are happeningAlso a lot of other mattress manufacturersdon't tell you what's inside the mattress and infants are highly susceptible to adverse health effects of indoor air pollutantsAnd we've talked about that in our Venta review that we actually have a lot of pollution indoorsThat we're just passively breathing if you want to check out that research.
I'll put a link in the video description.
Okay So seriously there are tons of harmful chemicals that we are now showing with new studies that are in these mattressesand so I'm really grateful now that I'm going to be amom to a new baby of thinking that my baby you think I'd be breathing in these chemicalsSo what is it made out of it's really weird.
It's really unique.
They call it polymer.
So what is it?Let's show you.
Oh weird! Cool! Yeah, so this mattress is 10% food grade polymerIt's 90% air.
It has a great cover by the way it is clouds super can it comes in the really cute colorsSo this is a pink one, even though Diana is having a boyInteresting it.
Looks like ramenramen noodlesIt's very supportive.
It's still collapses some, but it's kind of like aplasticy=, but they said it's food grade so the amazing thing is is you can throw this into the bath or shower and wash itRight so this it right here that covers machine washableAnd when you take this off you throw this into the shower or bathtub.
Itwashes it gets all the dust mite or allergens or anything that might store up in here.
If there's an accident andyou get you're an illness you can just wash it off, and they also suggest getting one more cover.
Nowthey're kind of expensive $65 for the white and it's more for the colorsBut I think that's a good idea to have the extra one and it's very durably madeI think on both of these and the zippers are super durable high quality easy and fit that's totally importantBecause you're gonna probably be changing it well since this already has a hole in itAm just going to cut right into it.
What really is in hereSo I got some foamMore foam there are springs.
It's a spring go through the whole mattress that's right nowOkay, there we gosospringAnd then it's got some foam around itAnd I don't I don't know what this isAnd then more padding on the top the number one reason why we're so excited about this mattressAnd why I am so happy to be able to use this with my baby is it's breathableI mean I know when we talk about safety measures that we take for our babies when we lay them downyou know you don't lay them on their tummies you keep them on their back make sure you have less than one inch of agap between your mattress and your cribAnd you also don't have a pillow or bedding in the bed.
Oh and the American Academy ofPediatrics just came out with a statementThat said no bumpers, so we do all of these things to keep our babies safeBut they know when it comes down to a mattressI don't think a lot of us myself included before thought about what fifty measures I could take involving my mattressand I had you saw my mattress it was awaterproof plasticYeah, plastic things so that obviously so that if your baby has an accident.
It's not gonna go into the mattress itselfbut if my baby were to roll over onto his tummy on aNon-permeable mattress where you can't you know it's waterproof, and you can't put air through itThat would be a risk that would be a danger that I would consider for my baby.
That's what I love about this this is100% breathable, and then the cover is100% breathableSo I feel like this gives me some peace of mind that if my baby were to roll over onto his tummyandand his face his face is down that he's still going to be able to breathe you saw what it was made of on theInside and you can see and we'll show you how?How air permeable? This is the air can move back and forth and I love that but I'm just gonna do it right nowIcan breathe normally it feels really no different than breathing through and this toothis is two layers, so it's not gonna be two layers, but Ican totally breathe through this without any problems at all.
So the Newton mattress only comes with one coverbut I would recommend having two if you have an accident in the middle of the nightAnd there's a leakage.
Throw it into the washand then you have another one that a new clean one that you can put right on.
You can use this cover by itself oryou can use a sheet on top of it.
They recommend using a muslin sheet or something that's breathableThey have a brand of sheets that they recommend on their website called Aiden and AldenThey are really well known and respected for their swaddling blanketsSo they're a really good quality sheet so we haven't tried those sheets yetWe haven't had a chance to use this mattress since our baby hasn't come yetBut when baby comes this summer we will give you an updated reviewThanks for watching our video on the Newton baby mattressWe hope that you found it informativeAnd if you have any questions or comments just like that in the comment section below if you haven't already doneSo please remember to hit subscribe and thanks for watching.
