1 x The Little Green Sheep Twist Natural Latex Mattress for Cot size 60cm wide x 120cm long x 10cm deep. Designed to fit standard sized cots. Handmade in the UK, it has a deep springy core of natural coconut coir finished with a layer of natural fleece wool on one side and a layer of thick pure natural latex (sap from the Hevea tree) on the other side. These are then securely bound with luxurious layers of fleece wool. This cot mattress gives two levels of support. A firmer level to provide the recommended amount of support for baby (from newborn) is made up of coir/wool. The comfortably supple latex/wool side is designed to correctly support the needs of a toddler up to 5 years of age.
Your Little Green Sheep Twist Natural Latex Cot Mattress will come with a (non-removable), durable, unbleached, organic cotton herringbone cover. We strongly recommend that you purchase the mattress protector at the same time to protect your mattress and cover. This item is available from our drop down menu above. The waterproof mattress protector will help to create an anti dust mite layer and protect your mattress from wetness and can be purchased separately.
Little Green Sheep guarantees this mattress for 5 years. This covers any manufacturing defects over a 5 year period from the date of delivery. This guarantee will be void should the mattress be mis-used in any way as detailed in the terms of warranty as published by The Little Green Sheep.

If you have ordered your mattress early and plan to store it for more than two weeks, do remove it from the cardboard packaging it comes in. Gently and carefully pierce the polyethene wrapping so that the mattress is allowed to breathe. Keep the mattress in a room with consistent temperature and not in a loft or a shed for example.
Unlike other mattresses, the Twist Natural Latex Mattress does not need to be turned.
From 0-18 months the firm springy coir side should be used. The mattress can be flipped after your child reaches 18 months onto the supple latex side.
Hoover your mattress:
Regular hoovering of the mattess will help reduce the risk of dust mites.
Stains & Soiling:
Little Green Sheep mattresses are not waterproof and not removable - a mattress protector will help prevent stains and wetness from occuring. The process of waterproofing mattresses can restrict air circulation and reduce breathability. A mattress protector which lays flat on top will help protect your mattress from little accidents and also help keep out dust mites. If your mattress does get soiled you can lightly sponge the cover with a mild detergent and air out until completely dry. Always ensure the mattress is completely dry before reusing.
- The safest place for your baby to sleep is on its back, in a cot, crib or moses basket in a room with you for the first 6 months.
- Check your baby regularly to ensure that they do not become too hot or too cold, and keep your baby's head is uncovered while sleeping.
- Do not cover your baby's face or head while they are sleeping, or use loose bedding
- Babies do not need especially warm rooms (around 16-20 degrees Celsius is recommended)
- Babies should never sleep next to a radiator or in direct sunlight.
- Place your baby on their back, rather than on their front or side
- Place your baby with their feet to the foot of the cot, to prevent them wriggling down under the covers, or use a baby sleep bag.
