The Savvy Baby by Savvy Rest

I’m sure you’ve seen my Esmont Platform Bed and Organic Kapok Pillows on the blog time and time again. Savvy Rest makes such wonderful products so when I heard they had a crib mattress, I knew it was the perfect fit for Elliott. We spend 1/3 of our lives on our mattress and pillows, and I want to make sure my son is sleeping on something good for his health and development. The amount of chemicals used to create the majority of mattresses on the market, today, does not make me feel comfortable. I’m constantly checking labels and making sure I understand exactly what’s in the product. With the Savvy Baby, you can feel confident knowing every material used is safe for your little one. 

Made in a GOTS-certified facility, this organic {also GOTS-certified} mattress is made of a single, solid 5" layer of firm natural Dunlop latex in the Savvy Rest organic casing. The true natural latex {Dunlop} uses rubber from USDA organic tree plantations and is processed under the Global Organic Latex Standard. So what that means for us is no toxic memory or polyurethane foam which you usually find in synthetic latex. Even the wool batting, which acts as a natural flame barrier {no chemical flame retardants used}, is certified organic and helps regulate temperature through airflow. The casing around the mattress is made from unbleached, GOTS-certified organic cotton. Feeling good about all of that, right?! 

When I first took the mattress out of the box, I couldn’t believe how soft and comfortable it felt. If I could take a nap on it, I would. I thought, ‘my baby is going to be sleeping on total luxury’! It fit perfectly in a standard sized crib, and has worked well with every sheet I have purchased. Eventually we will move him into a toddler bed {which takes crib sized mattresses}, and I know this type of quality will be able to withstand the next several years.
