This non-toxic mattress for kids is perfect for when your child is ready to make the transition out of the crib and into a “big kid bed.” For many families, this non-toxic mattress will be the one mattress in your child’s bedroom all the way from the age of 2 to when you drive them off to college. (OK – let’s try not think about college just yet!)
Needless to say, though, you don’t want a mattress that has been soaked in flame retardants, or made with harmful chemicals that start off-gasing into the room.
The mattress is a standard twin size (38″ x 74″), which allows you to maximize the life and use of the mattress.
What’s Inside our Pure Start Non-Toxic Mattress for Kids
We make this Non-Toxic Mattress for Kids with the same materials and attention to detail as our non-toxic crib mattress. It’s lovingly handmade in California, using only three natural ingredients: Organic Cotton, PureGrow Wool & Tempered Steel Innersprings. It’s standard twin size, and built to last.
1. Firm, Tempered Steel Innerspring – ideal support & longevity
To start with, we use firm, tempered steel innersprings at the core. These firm innersprings will ensure that this mattress continues to provide enough support as your child ages and extends the useful life of the mattress, making it an excellent investment.
2. Tufted Organic Cotton
The innersprings are covered with layers of tufted organic cotton pads. Not only is the cotton grown organically, it is also processed naturally. So there are no pesticides, no defoliants, no mineral oils & no fire-retardants.
3. PureGrow Wool
Then we add a layer of PureGrow Wool – which was sheared from live, healthy sheep and gently processed without chemicals. Why do we use wool here? Well, wool is the perfect bedding material for its ability to wick off moisture, regulate temperature, and reduce mildew. It’s also naturally flame resistant. That means this mattress naturally meets the fire safety standards we’re required to have by law without any harmful flame retardant chemicals.
These generous layers of Organic Cotton & PureGrow Wool mean that your child won’t just be sleeping on a safe and toxic-free bed, but also an amazingly comfortable bed. Even though it can be difficult for us as parents to justify spending a tiny bit extra for all this comfort, having a more comfortable bed is hugely important. It means more peaceful nap times & deeper sleeping through the night. Which also means better sleep for Mommy & Daddy!
At the end, the entire mattress is covered with our Organic Cotton Ticking. We make this cotton extraordinary soft & breathable by twice-washing it in gentle, non-toxic soap to remove any starch. And no bleaching or chemical treatment is ever used in this process.
And that’s it. Just steel innersprings, organic cotton, and PureGrow wool.
What makes the Pure Start Mattress for Kids “Non Toxic”
Like all of our mattresses, the Pure Start Mattress is made from start to finish to be a truly non-toxic mattress for kids. While we could call this an “organic mattress for kids” or “natural mattress for kids”, we think “non-toxic mattress for kids” is the best description because of the special care we put into keeping harmful chemicals out of the mattress – something that many so-called “organic toddler mattresses” do not do.
So here’s our promise: At SleepLily, you will never find any of the following chemicals in our mattresses.
- No Flame Retardants
- No Polyurethane
- No Synthetic Latex
- No Vinyl
- No Antimony
- No Halogenated Flame Retardants (HFRs)
- No Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs)
- No Artificial Waterproofers
- No Harmful Chemicals. Period.
Whether you buy from us or another company, we implore you to make sure that the mattress you buy does not have any of these materials. Companies aren’t obligated to tell you what is in the mattress. So if the company does not specifically make a pledge like ours, there is a very good chance that they have one or more of these harmful chemicals.
Handmade in California – Just for You!
Every SleepLily mattress is made fresh to order, by hand, in California.
This means you don’t have to worry about getting a mattress that’s been sitting in a warehouse for months on end, like you do with some of the other mattresses. You’ll be getting a top-quality mattress that is perfectly pure and untainted.
Because we make each mattress to order, please allow 1-3 weeks for the production of your mattress, plus 5-10 days for shipping from California.
If you need to expedite your order, please contact us in advance so we can see if we can accommodate.

When my 3 year old transitioned to a big kid bed a year ago I knew that I had to find a safe mattress for her to rest her head on each night. It is no secret nowadays that your average mattress is pumped full of flame retardants and toxic materials. While I can’t fully guard my daughter from a toxic world, I can make sure she is breathing safe and easy every night by finding the right mattress. I looked high and low and truly wasn’t impressed by the many companies claiming to sell non-toxic mattresses… until I found SleepLily.
SleepLily produces REAL non-toxic mattress made with quality materials. What’s more, they are made of ethically sourced materials and constructed in the USA. Don’t be fooled by the mattresses you’ll find on Amazon that claim to be safe and clean. These often have a layer of something organic or natural, but the full composition is nothing special and they are certainly not ethically sourced or produced. SleepLily hits every important point and also works to make their mattresses within reach for families.
It’s been a year with our mattress and I can honestly say that I fully expect our SleepLily to be with us when my older daughter graduates high school. This is no flimsy mattress that we’ll have to replace in a few years. It is thick and sturdy with a soft outer layer that is nicely quilted. It also doesn’t hurt that it has a lovely natural smell that still smells fresh a year later. There is no chemically odor or synthetic texture because it is completely natural…. to the core.
I encourage anyone who is on a similar quest for a safe mattress for there family to look into the real difference offered by SleepLily. I researched extensively and could not find a better option. Having tested our mattress for over a year, I can say with some authority that families need look no further than SleepLily for safety and quality.

When I was setting up for baby the one thing I really invested in was the bed. Both of my kids slept in the same crib made with solid wood and non toxic paint (because kids gnaw things!) with an organic crib mattress. When my son got older we moved him out of the crib and invested in this organic mattress which I feel good about because it doesn’t have any harmful chemicals but truth be told it’s rather firm and kind of uncomfortable. It’s not a place I like to get stuck at night.
When we were ready to give up the crib for our littlest, we discovered the Sleep Lily Pure Start Non-Toxic Organic Mattress and while it was more expensive than our other organic mattress IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY! It is the most comfortable mattress I have ever laid on. Elodie has been sleeping on this mattress for 2 months now and I have to say there have been a few nights when she snuck into my bed and I decided to just sneak into hers instead of putting her back there.
This is the mattress my child will spend every night on for the next 15+ years so if you break it down that way for only 16 cents a day I’m providing my child with the most important thing I possibly could: a healthy start and a toxin-free place to sleep. That my friends is PRICELESS.
