As parents we all know how important sleep is to both our children and ourselves. We are quite lucky in that both of our girls have generally been good sleepers. There are various things we do to help them get a good night sleep such as reading before bedtime, comfy bedlinen and mattress.
Before I had Ophelia we knew we wanted a bedside crib as opposed to a moses basket. We ordered a SnuzPod and we haven't looked back since. We had read lots of reviews and ordered a mattress from Little Green Sheep to go with it.
We were delighted when they asked if we would like to review a mattress for Eva. We've been so pleased with Ophelia's that we jumped at the chance. Eva is now in a normal size single bed so we ordered her one to fit her bed which is 90x200cm, mattress.
Little Green Sheep mattresses are all made with the best natural ingredients meaning that your child is sleeping safely away from any chemicals and are allergy free. The 4 ingredients are coconut, cotton, natural latex and wool.
The cotton aids breathability and has been grown without the use of pesticides. The coconut fibres form a supportive core acting as tiny springs and reducing pressure points. The natural latex binds the coconut fibres and acts as the comfy, supportive layer. Finally, the wool is hypo-allergenic and temperature regulating. The organic sheep's wool remove the need for chemical fire retardant sprays due to its natural fire proofing properties.
An organic mattress is kinder to your child's delicate skin and to our environment as it's free from harmful toxins.
Eva was delighted with her new mattress. The first thing she did was jump on it. This is clearly the top priority test for a 3.5 year old. Luckily the mattress passed her vigorous inspection.
I asked her what she thought of her new bed and these were her own words and opinions:
"It's very soft and comfy. I like sleeping on it and so does bunny (her teddy)." As you can see, she approves.
We've been so happy with the quality of both Ophelia and Eva's mattresses. They are firm and very durable. Even though they are firm they are soft to touch and provide the girls' with a comfy, yet supportive night's sleep.
We'd recommend the brand to everybody. We always choose high quality mattresses for ourselves and are very fussy about what we sleep on so it's only natural that we would do the same for our children.
Ophelia has now moved into her own bedroom and is in a cot. We've been looking at their range for cots and we will be buying one asap for her bed. You can view the range here, Cot Mattresses. They are unique in that they are dual sided. One side is firm and can be used up until the age of 12 months old as recommended by industry experts. The other side is more supple with durable support which can be used up until age 5 years.
We just wish they did them for adults..
Have you heard of the brand before? Have you used any of their products?
