More about the Little Lamb Mattress
This is a perfect stand-alone kid’s mattress. Or, as part of the “Grow With Me” system, the Little Lamb mattress is the fundamental building block. Additional components can be added to the mattress on occasions when a growing child requires a softer feel for more comfort. This 6 inch mattress is sufficient for a child up to 150 pounds.
The Three Stage “Grow With Me” System
- This Little Lamb Mattress is the first step in the three stage system just for kids. This latex mattress is the medium-firm base layer. Each subsequent layer is added as the child grows and can be purchased as a complete system, or separately as needed.
- The Little Lamb Wool Topper is the second layer in the three stage program. The topper can be placed on the Little Lamb Mattress for children who desire a soft enveloping feel.
- The Little Lamb Latex Topper is the third layer of the three stage system. This topper can go between the mattress and the wool pillowtop to give older children or teenagers a pressure point relieving layer.
More about the natural and organic materials used by Suite Sleep
Made in the USA with a low carbon footprint! Suite Sleep products are made to last significantly longer than their conventional counterparts by using high quality natural materials. Replacing products less frequently means less waste in landfills and conserving raw materials.
All of the wool used by Suite Sleep is sourced in the USA, no importing from New Zealand or Peru. This helps reduce the carbon footprint of the material. These USA growers use the best animal husbandry practices and the sheep get to graze on natural land never used for agriculture, guaranteeing that it is free from contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Their fleece, shorn from live animals, is also processed domestically, washed with hot water and vegetable based soaps and without the addition of any chemical agents.
All of the Suite Sleep organic cotton is GOTS certified and all of the knit fabrics are milled in the US and Canada. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and uses less water to grow than conventional cotton. It is processed without harsh chemicals and finished naturally using low impact dyes.
The latex is GOLS certified organic and comes from Sri Lanka. The rubber is harvested by tapping the sap of the Hevea brasiliensis tree which produces for many years before being harvested, used for wood, and replanted. Natural rubber plantations are great to help sustain the local economy as jobs are created while not depleting the natural resources of the country. The plantations are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, their processes certified by EcoInstitute and their practices are Fair Trade certified. The natural rubber sap itself is converted into natural rubber foams for use in mattresses and bedding by adding air, natural soap, and natural vulcanization agents, thus creating a healthy and sustainable product.
The matching foundation
The 9 inch matching foundation is made to be used with this rubber mattress. Solid wood slats are covered in wool and matching organic cotton fabric. The wood is pine harvested from sustainable forests in Oregon and Washington.
