We are super excited to be working with Newton Baby again! We got their crib mattress a few months ago and I swear it’s the most breathable type of mattress or bedding I’ve ever come across. You can read my full review of just the mattress here if you missed it!
This go around, they sent us a waterproof, breathable crib mattress pad to put over the mattress. When I first saw that they were releasing a mattress pad, I was slightly skeptical that it would affect the total breath-ability. Looking back, I’m not sure why I ever doubted them!
The mattress pad is made of the same type of material as the mattress, so it’s just as breathable. It fits right over the mattress perfectly so that it’s snug and does not pose any type of suffocation or strangulation hazard. Not to mention it’s just as cushy and soft as the mattress itself!
Just like I did when we first got the mattress, I pushed my face into it once we had the mattress pad on and took a deep breath. You really do have to try it to believe it but it’s honestly just like breathing normally! I even made my husband come put his face on it and take a breath or two. It’s crazy how much airflow can get through the mattress. I took the #breathe2believe challenge and was just as shocked as always at how incredibly breathable it is!
When I took these photos, Leopold decided he wanted to sleep on the crib mattress for his nap time…and he did!! I was surprised but he stayed there for his whole nap…must really be comfy!
These waterproof mattress pads would be great at any age! We are just starting to work our way into night time potty training so we might end up letting Leopold sleep on his baby sister’s mattress for a while as we work out the kinks! It will be insanely easy to pull the mattress pad off to wash it in case of any accidents.
Once baby sister arrives, this will be a great way to spare our pretty Newton crib mattress from spit up and all of the other messes babies can make. This mattress pad is made to stand up to messes big and small!
