As with all Avocado mattresses, the Avocado Crib Mattress is handmade in Los Angeles. There are now three options to choose from. This review is of the Avocado Organic Crib Mattress.

Like the rest of Avocado’s mattresses, the Avocado organic crib mattress is gorgeous. The crib mattress is also long-lasting because it’s 2-stage. That means it can go from a baby to a toddler bed. One side is more firm for infants who need that extra support. Flip it to the other side for a tad softer feel – ideal for toddlers who can move their heads and bodies around more.

A Farm to Bedroom Mattress

Avocado has taken the concept of farm-to-table that’s popular in the food niche and applied it to making mattresses. Most mattress brands don’t manufacture their products but are made by a different manufacturer (or several). Avocado made their own, from farm to bed, in their GOTS organic certified factories in Los Angeles. Avocado Green co-owns the factory in India where the GOLS Dunlop latex is processed and control more than 4,000 acres of family-run latex plantations. In addition, they ethically raise more than 150,000 native Gaddi sheep on 40,000+ hectares of organic certified pastures in the Himalayas.

No Polyurethane Foams, Glue, Flame-Retardant, or Chemicals

Avocado Organic Crib Mattress DOES NOT have:
✔️ Polyurethane or foams.
✔️ Chemical adhesives.
✔️ Chemical flame retardants.
✔️ Vinyl.
✔️ Heavy metal springs.

There are no petroleum-based polyurethane foams, chemical adhesives, vinyl waterproofing, polyurethane, polyethylene, or flame-retardant chemicals in the Avocado Organic Crib Mattress. Instead, they use 100% organic wool as a natural fire retardant and interior needle tufting. The Avocado mattress protector is made from certified organic cotton. That means it doesn’t have plastic waterproofing. So expect to do more washing, and that’s why the company recommends you buy three so you can change them out as needed.

If unsure about the protector, you may want a washable waterproof incontinence pad to put under where the baby is sleeping.


Babies sleep more than adults, which means that they spend more time near mattresses that can emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and EDCs (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals). Studies show these emissions are linked to neurodevelopmental issues, childhood obesity, asthma, and other conditions. That’s why our organic crib mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low emissions. It’s been tested in environmental chambers to meet the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants. Few crib mattresses qualify for this gold standard.
