Avocado Organic Crib Mattress
Like the rest of Avocado’s mattresses, the Avocado organic crib mattress is gorgeous. It’s also created to go from baby to 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. As with all Avocado mattresses, it’s handmade in Los Angeles.
Crib Mattress Size
Fits standard cribs and is 6 inches deep and 28 inches across. The bundle of joy is 52 inches long and weighs 36 lbs. Mom and baby are doing great!
What it’s Made of
In addition to 170 cotton-wrapped pocketed innersprings which are encased in unbleached cotton, there’s organic certified wool, organic certified flax pads; organic certified coco-fiber perimeters infused with organic latex for strong edge support; resilient organic certified natural dunlop latex foam; and organic certified cotton ticking. Cotton is GOTS organic certified.
How much is the Avocado Organic Baby Mattress?
The Avocado Organic Baby Mattress costs $1,249 and has an option to finance with Affirm. If you quality you can get the mattress now and get 0% APR and payments as low as $76/month.
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 make their own products, rather they’re made by a different manufacturer (or several). Avocado mades their own, from farm to bed in their GOTS organic certified factories in Los Angeles. They co-own 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
There are no petroleum-based polyurethane foams, chemical adhesives, vinyl waterproofing, polyurethane, polyethylene or flame retardant chemicals in this Organic Crib Mattress. Instead, they use 100% organic wool as a natural fire retardant and interior needle tufting. Keeping with the theme of no plastic or polyurethane, the baby mattress protector is made of certified organic cotton too. That means more washing and the company recommends you buy 3 so that you can change them out as needed.
If you’re unsure about your purchase at all, you may want to get a waterproof incontinence pad to put under where baby is sleeping.
GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFIED
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.
100% GOTS Organic Certified Wool
Carbon Neutral Production & Shipping
25 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
100 DAY SLEEP TRIAL – but the company states that the crib mattress must be sanitary and undamaged to be eligible.
As of this writing Avocado does not sell the crib, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that was the next addition to the Avocado Green mattress family.
