Moms Review Of Lullaby Earth’s Non-Toxic Crib Mattress
Here is what our mama testers had to say about Lullaby Earth:
When having a new baby one of the first things new parents think about it the crib and mattress. A mattress that needs to stand up to all of their safety standards for their new bundle of joy arriving within a short 9 months’ time. But what does one really look for in a infant/toddler mattress? Firmness? Waterproof? Well if this is the case for any new parent or even those experienced ones, the search is over. Lullaby Earth has made a Super Light Weight Crib Mattress that is simply fabulous and I am here to tell you why!
Some baby mattress’ contain bad plastic chemicals that in turn your baby breathes in when laying on. Such as flame retardants, waterproofing additives and antibacterial, none of which are safe for anyone let alone a precious baby.
Lullaby Earth’s mattress meets all safety standards and leaves out all that icky stuff nobody wants to lay their baby on.
So you can breathe a sigh of relief every time baby lies down to rest their eyes. They make each mattress core and surface with food grade materials, in fact 100% of it is! And absolutely NO polyurethane foam or vinyl/PVC! Then we look at how it’s flame retardant and this is amazing, they use hydrated silica which is a form of sand.
GREENGUARD certification got the chance to review and test Lullaby Earth products. This company helps manufacturers test items for low chemical emissions, improving the air where products will be used. Lullaby Earth’s products passed their tests and gives us parents some insight on how wonderful their products really are.
When we first got our hands on the mattress I was amazed how light it was compared to another one we were using.
It made for simple sheet changing as I was not fighting with a heavy bulky mattress the entire time. And to our surprise the sheets fit much better on Lullaby Earth’s mattress as well, no more super stretching out those adorable crib sheets in fear of ripping a seam. Another surprise I noticed was just how firm it really was, which is perfect for a infant. My daughter was used to a little give in her old mattress so it took some getting used to.
As a mom I always sit with my daughter, and give a cuddle at bed time. I enjoyed how the mattress didn’t sag when I sat down. Mind you this is a new item for us so it may change over time, but it has been over a month and its firmness has held up with an almost 40lb toddler bouncing all around at times.
It passes the parent safety test in my book for sure. I love how all those yucky chemicals are tossed out the window with this wonderful company. No more worrying about what my little one is breathing in while she is dreaming. I also love that it’s so simple to clean due to it being waterproof, I used a little soapy water and a rag and within minutes it was all washed up , super simple!
This mattress is a great thing to have whether it be for a new baby or for your growing toddler. And it has a great price tag with a lifetime warranty! They offer two styles starting at $169, and that’s just fabulous!
From the Founder of Lullaby Earth
Why is your product a safer (non-toxic/greener) alternative?
In addition to being exceptionally green, this mattress passes the strictest physical safety tests available for a crib mattress better than any other crib mattress on the market. The edge and corner support is unsurpassed and is comparable to a spring mattress. No legs from a jumping toddler will compress the edge or corner of the mattress causing a leg to fall down through the crib. The unique design of construction gives this foam mattress strength beyond any other lightweight mattress and even many coiled mattresses. If you stand it on end, the mattress will not bend, fold or collapse – even with pressure applied. I haven’t seen this kind of strength in any other foam mattress except Naturepedic’s more expensive lightweight mattress.
With this said, while the mattress is quite firm, it has a layer of fill for comfort so the infant does not get flat-head. That is important too. The mattress has the best of all features and safety factors while being very affordable. Why consider this product for the MACT Green Award? Lullaby Earth’s Super Lightweight crib mattress uses only non-toxic, natural and recyclable materials which is very friendly to the environment while being the best foam crib mattress on the market for comfort and safety. This is a winning combination.
