The Little Green Sheep Natural Twist Cot Bed Mattress (140 cm x 70 cm)

If you’re looking for a cot mattress, you really have to read this.  The Little Green Sheep Company have come up with a really unique idea with their one mattress that incorporates two types of support. The Twist Natural Latex Cot Bed Mattress is a duel sided mattress that will grow with your baby meaning they will get the right support as they grow without you having to buy a new one.

Your baby’s sleep needs change as they grow and the Natural Twist Cot Bed Mattress is the perfect solution to this. It has a firm side which is recommended for babies from 0 to 18 months of age and then you simply twist the mattress over to its softer natural latex side that is durable and comfy for toddlers and children up to 7 years old. The Little Green Sheep Company have been working with the Lullaby Trust to promote safer sleep for babies and this mattress has been developed to incorporate your babies growing needs. The firm side feels firm but not uncomfortable which I’d worry about a little; however, Benjamin made the transition from his SnuzPod to the cot without any complaints so I’m taking that as a win in terms of both comfort and safety! Because it’s firm, it means he doesn’t get all sweaty in the warmer months and he also is less likely to ‘rebreathe’ Carbon Dioxide, especially as he has started to sleep on his front now.

Being from The Little Green Sheep Company, it goes without saying really but the mattress is 100% chemical-free (lots of other baby mattresses use fire proofing chemicals but not The Little Green Sheep Company!). The mattress is made from fleece wool which is naturally fire proof and it also helps to regulate your little ones body temperature as well as keep those pesky dust-mites at bay; a coconut fibre is used which acts as the springs and actually reduces pressure points for your sleeping baby; it uses natural latex which is breathable for your toddler and cotton which helps aid the breathability of the mattress. I love the fact that Benjamin is sleeping on something that has no nasties, especially as he has started to sleep on his tummy so his face is a lot closer to the mattress.

 

To keep this mattress in great condition, we’ve been using a waterproof mattress protector on the top. The Little Green Sheep Organic Waterproof mattress protector is a super soft mattress protector which is made from a breathable, extra absorbent cotton. This helps to create a dry and safe sleeping environment without the crinkly feel of your usual waterproof mattress protector. Using the mattress protector allows your mattress to breathe from the sides and underneath whilst also creating a dust mite barrier which could help reduce SIDS. It’s 100% waterproof and best of all is machine washable & tumble dryer safe so you know you can have it washed and dry in no time at all! If you are planning on using your mattress for future babies, it has been recommended that you use a mattress protector to keep it as clean and free from dust mites as possible to reduce the possibility of SIDS. Even though we aren’t planning on having any more children, I still think it’s worth using the protector to keep the mattress as clean as possible.

The fabric is much sturdier and the whole design is better thought out; it just feels so well made. The fabrics aren’t cheap and there are no nasty chemicals to worry about. I would certainly recommend this mattress again and again.
