Newton mattress enters the market with an innovative bang! We are going to share our investigation on the topic with you through this blog post.
Many of you must be aware of the fact that thousands of healthy babies die in the USA because of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). The major cause behind these deaths is suffocation during sleep. To minimize these fatal accidents, the FDA advises putting your little one to sleep in a separate crib that is breathable and safe. So, Newton took the challenge of providing breathable and safe sleep to infants and toddlers.
Like many other baby care product manufacturers, Newton is helping parents around with its superior quality crib mattresses designed specifically for the safety and comfort of newborns and toddlers.
Newton crib mattress comes into three models:
The Newton Orginal Crib Mattress has a 5.5 inches thickness with a dual-layer outer cover. This version is only available in standard size.
|Warranty||Lifetime Limited Warranty|
|Trial Period||100 Nights|
|Material||Food Grade Polymer|
Newton’s Original crib mattress is similar to the Essential model where the construction and material used are concerned. This mattress also employs the wovenaire Polymer construction technology that makes the mattress highly breathable. The inner core resembles a bird’s nest or a pack of uncooked instant noodles with eyelets. This airy design results in better circulation of air and keeps the mattress cool and comfortable even after prolonged use. The main difference between the original and essential model is the thickness. The Original mattress is 5.5 inches thick and fits a US standard crib nicely.
Feel of the Mattress
The firmness and comfort are ideal for small babies and toddlers. It’s a no-foam mattress with a medium-firm feel. This mattress, like all other newton products, is 100% recyclable and is made up of all-natural and chemical-free materials. It’s a Greenguard Gold Certified mattress and meets the federal standards for babies’ safety and hygiene.
It has a dual-layer Polyester cover that can be removed and machine washed with ease. The fabric is soft, delicate, and breathable. The core of the mattress, unlike other conventional baby mattresses, can be washed in the shower and then put to dry.
It seems a durable product as no foam or spring could be bent down or flattened up with time. The fact that it can be washed means it can last a lifetime. After the baby stage is over, it can be transitioned to be used as a toddler’s bed mattress.
Even after using the product for a significant period, a refund or exchange can be requested within 100 days from the date of purchase.
Cons of Newton Original Mattress
Despite having a lot of benefits for the safety, hygiene, and comfort of babies and toddlers, the Original Newton living crib mattress still has some drawbacks.
What made us disappointed was the inability of the product to resist water drips and spills. With babies and toddlers, you always expect accidents, be it a leaking diaper, spilling water from the sippy cup, or a vomit. The leakage can penetrate inside the core and make the crib surface wet which won’t be easier to clean. Newton has released a waterproof version of the original mattress but those with the Original one still suffer the risk of water leaks and spills.
Another downside to the product is the cost. It’s an expensive product that might not suit a lot of people’s budget requirements.
The Newton Essential Crib Mattress is a 4 inches thick mattress with a single-layer removable outer cover. There are two size variations: standard and mini. The standard size fits nicely in all US standard cribs and cots and the Newton Mini Crib Mattress can be used in small bassinets and carrycot.
|Warranty||Lifetime Limited Warranty|
|Trial Period||100 Nights|

It’s suitable for newborns and toddlers alike and features firmness and support that will last all through the toddler years.

Its unique wovenaire core construction made purely from Food-Grade Plastic Polymer makes it highly safe and secure for small children. The inside of the product is 90% air and 10% Polymer fibers that are compressed together to make a firm sleeping surface.
The breathable technology employed in the construction may help prevent suffocation and set the path for better breathability. The brand claims it to be the only mattress available in the market that can be washed from the inside.
No foam, spring, gel, or latex is used in the manufacturing process, which allows the mattress to be washed from the core. It can be washed whenever needed with mild soap and tap water. After washing, shake it well and leave it to dry.

|Warranty||Lifetime Limited Warranty|
|Trial Period||100 Nights|
|Material||Wovenaire Food Grade Polymer|
As mentioned earlier during our review of the original newton crib mattress, the downside of the product was its inability to resist water drips and spills. The brand rectified this shortcoming and launched a waterproof version that costs highest than the previous two versions.
With a thickness of 5.5 inches, the waterproof newton mattress can resist water leakages and spills with a barrier stitched inside the layer of the outer cover, on one side of the mattress. The other side has the same highly breathable outer covering designed for small babies to prevent the risk of suffocation and SIDS. The side with a waterproof barrier can be used for toddlers up to four years of age, especially during the toilet training period.
The construction of the mattress is the same as the other two previous models. The typical wovenaire core technology is used with recyclable and breathable Polymer plastic.
Removable Outer Cover
The removable cover can be machine washed with mild detergents. The soft quilted cover still has the unmatched breathable fabric that keeps temperature-controlled and prevents sweating during sleep.
The product can be purchased via Amazon, other third-party vendors, or direct orders can be placed at Newton’s official website to avail of the 100-night free trial period.
Sizes of Newton Mattress
The Essential Newton crib mattresses are available in standard and mini sizes. The Waterproof crib mattress and the Original newton mattress however are only available in standard sizes. The mat can fit nicely in all US standard-sized cribs.

The extra inches and layers in the Original mattress come with an increased price. The Essential is priced at 249.99 USD whereas the Original is priced at 299.99 USD. The waterproof version is the highest-priced mattress among all three with a price tag of 349.99 USD.

Common Features of Newton Mattress
The Soft Quilted Removable Cover
All three Newton mattresses have a plush quilted outer cover made out of pure Polyester that is washable and 100% breathable. The enhanced breathability of Newton covers and core makes it a preferred choice of new parents. You will be having a single-layer cover in the Essential version and a dual-layer cover in the Original and Waterproof models. The extra layer adds more comfort and enhances the surface’s overall feel. The brand claims that additional layers result in even better air circulation and keep the mattress cooler.
The Patent Wovenaire Core
The inside of all Newton crib mattresses is made up of the patent Wovenaire Core Technology. This unique construction features individual Polymer threads tangled together in a complex form to lay the foundation of the mattress. The compressed threads form a sturdy yet comfortable surface that is finished with soft and delicate coverings. The materials incorporated in the construction of this highly innovative design are Greenguard Gold certified, which means it’s a chemical and toxin-free product.
The Feel of the Newton Mattresses
Although we cannot review the mattress feel from a baby’s perspective but we can discuss the firmness and comfort by attempting to examine its surface and built. The mattress when touched with hands feels bouncy yet firm. We can say it has a medium firmness level, and a delicate feel that is highly suitable for small babies. We thought we could feel the inner plastic core but that was not the case. The plush quilted cover does not let you feel what lies beneath and offers a supportive and breathable surface that does not seem to sink much.

For small babies, the mattress feels quite firm and for toddlers, it seems responsive enough to enjoy a long undisturbed comfy sleep.
