4” Organic Coco, Latex & Wool Innature Cot Mattress

This Innature cot mattress is the best quality, natural mattress you will find for your baby or toddler.  It is made with the highest quality natural products and intricate attention to detail.

Inner core consists of 30mm Coco fibre. Then 30mm latex is layered on either side of the core. The coco and latex is then covered with a layer of 500gsm New Zealand eco wool (from the South Island). This is then all hand stitched together (no toxic glues or solvents used).

Once stitched, an unbleached removable organic cotton & hemp cover, quilted with 250gsm wool covers the mattress (as per image).  This cover can be removed and washed, or replaced when the cot mattress is required for additional children.

Size:  69 x 129cm

Care instructions:  Spot clean using a gentle, eco friendly detergent and leave to dry naturally.

Toddlers and young children can be quite active sleepers and leaks and accidents do occur! We strongly recommend a wool cot mattress protector (underlay) is used with this mattress. This will provide additional warmth, comfort and health benefits for your toddler and extend the life of your cot mattress.

Why is it so important to get a natural mattress for my baby or child?

One of the most important decisions you can make for the care, comfort and health of your baby is your choice in mattress. Babies and toddlers spend 10-14 hours a day sleeping and playing on a bassinette or cot mattress. A child’s every breath inhales air no more than six inches away from it. As such, for the first few years of a child’s life, the mattress is the single most prominent object in the child’s environment.

Conventional synthetic mattresses (foam and innerspring) are made using an array of toxic chemicals and more parents are becoming aware of the negative effects these chemicals are having on the health of their children.

Polyurethane foam, for example, is made from a base of petrochemicals combined with a staggering array of additional chemical ingredients used as stabilizers, catalysts, surfactants, and blowing agents. Each of these chemicals is associated with a host of environmental problems as well as numerous health hazards. Polyurethane foam is extremely flammable. To combat this hazard, toxic industrial fire retardants are added. The most common chemical fire retardant used to treat polyurethane foam has been pentaBDE, a toxin asociated with hyperactivity and neurobehavioural alterations.

PentaBDE is not bound to the foam, so it leaches out into the surrounding air. It has recently been banned in Europe, and by the State of California as of 2006.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the surface material used in nearly all baby mattresses, is widely considered to be one of the most toxic and environmentally unfriendly plastics in use today. Phthalates, associated with asthma, reproductive effects, and cancer, make up 30% by weight of the PVC surface of a typical baby mattress.

The FDA and Consumer Product Safety Commission have issued general warnings regarding the use of phthalates, yet the PVC surfaces of baby mattresses still contain phthalates. The PVC surface of a typical baby mattress is also often treated with toxic fire-retardant chemicals such as antimony, arsenicand phosphorous.

Our natural cot and bassinet mattresses are free from all synthetic and unhealthy chemicals. The materials we use have been specially chosen because they allow good air circulation and provide the best comfort and support for a young child. A baby’s lungs, nervous and digestive systems are still developing and a natural mattress is the healthiest choice for young children who deserve the best start in life.

Can I use this natural mattress for more than one child?

Obviously, only one child should sleep in a cot or bed at a time. When your baby outgrows their cot, you can definitely re-use this natural mattress for additional children. The materials these mattresses are made from are very durable and a child’s mattress can sustain a weight of up to 70kg comfortably.

When the next child comes along, simply replace the eco wool cover which encloses your mattress with a new cover. Contact us if you require assistance.

Why is latex a wonderful fibre for a mattress?

Natural rubber latex foam is produced from the rubber tree (Hevea Brazilensis). The trees are sustainably harvested and grown in plantations throughout Malaysia. This natural latex is biodegradable and contains no fillers or additives, compared to about 30% inert fillers contained in other foams.

Latex is known for it’s therapeutic properties and its ability to provide orthopedic support. It naturally adjusts to the contours of your body, providing gentle support that maintains proper spinal alignment without restricting capillary blood flow. This reduces tossing and turning and allows a deeper, more restful sleep. It is durable, hypoallergenic, and has thermal qualities. It is porous and therefore breathable, keeping the body cool in summer and warm in winter. Bacteria, mildew, mold and bed bugs hate latex! Latex in a mattress can last for up to 20 years.

A small percentage of people have an allergic reaction to natural latex which is caused by the natural proteins found in the Hevea Brazilensis tree. We advise you to test for possible allergy before considering natural latex mattresses. However, please note that we have never experienced any reaction to our mattresses as the latex in our products never actually comes into direct contact with skin.

Why is Coco fibre a wonderful material for a mattress?

Coconut fibre is obtained from the fibrous husk of the coconut from the coconut palm. It has a high lignin content and thus a low cellulose content, which makes it resilient, strong and highly durable, and a great material to provide the support the body needs whilst asleep.

Coco fibre has many healing properties, is non allergenic and has excellent moisture and air permeability properties which keeps the mattress internally dry. Despite it’s durability it’s also extremely elastic, making it a great addition to a mattress to provide firm support for the spinal column. The combination of latex and coconut husk fibre in our mattresses offers optimal posture and lumbar support whilst keeping free of pressure points. The fibres are compressed together with natural latex glue giving it a rubbery texture. This combination reduces tossing and turning and allows a deeper, more restful sleep.

Why is pure wool a wonderful fibre for a mattress?

Wool is a ‘super fibre’ in our minds! The properties of real wool make it a perfect material to provide a dry and safe sleep. Wool fibres:

  • Are hygroscopic. This means wool has the power to readily absorb and give off moisture. It can absorb moisture up to one-third of its own weight (synthetic fibers can only absorb 2-3 per cent of moisture before they begin to feel wet). Since a human body can relieve up to 1 litre of perspiration while asleep, wool’s ability to release moisture makes it a unique material in providing hygenic, comfortable sleep,
  • Naturally regulate temperature and insulate. Since it supports rapid evaporation of moisture– a woolen bed is considered the warmest and driest one,
  • Are naturally fire retardant – harder to ignite than most synthetic and cotton fibres used in equivalent products making it excellent for safe sleep.

Uncoloured, unprocessed wool has also been known to provide wonderful relief for muscles, joints, and backbone and to stimulate circulation.
