Why pick a natural mattress for your baby? Ethical brand The Little Green Sheep explains the benefits of creating a healthy sleep environment

Paid partnership

With an ever-growing focus on embracing a more ethical lifestyle, it’s easy to see why adopting a natural approach to raising a child is a fast-growing consideration, and high on the agenda for many new parents. With a baby spending on average 14 hours a day catching ZZZ’s, creating a natural sleeping environment is a top priority, too.

It’s essential to get the right crib or Moses basket, as well as the best sleeping bags, but what little ones sleep on is undoubtedly most important. A natural mattress will ensure they are resting in a pure and healthy environment, free from toxins and harmful chemicals, and will create the right setting for a naturally, full night’s sleep.

Little Green Sheep Natural MattressA brand dedicated to creating the most natural environment for families is The Little Green Sheep. With its range of lovingly handmade mattresses, the brand has been championing the importance of a natural night’s sleep for well over a decade. From the luxuriously soft sheep’s wool at the core, to the 100% cosy cotton cover, each Little Green Sheep mattress is made using only the finest natural materials. The naturally sourced coconut coir acts like tiny individual springs to relieve pressure points and provides unrivalled firm support in line with recommendations from safe sleep experts.

Free from nasties

You can rest assured that there are absolutely no harmful chemicals or fire-retardant sprays used.

Naturally hypo-allergenic

The wool naturally absorbs and disperses moisture. This pure ingredient creates a clean and dry environment that’s resistant to dust mites and bacterial growth.


The materials in a Little Green Sheep natural mattress are naturally breathable, which maximises air flow. Not only does this help little ones with temperature regulation and sweat-wicking, it ensures a warm, dry sleeping environment for your baby that will keep the dust mites away.
