Too many Nook mattresses spoil the baby. In a good way.

Last year, Nook wowed me with the launch of their incredible (if expensive) Pebble crib mattress. Natural materials, no off-gassing, water and stain resistant and–bonus–it looked totally cool. Now they have a new mattress that even more mamas can afford.

The Nook Pebble Lite offers the same conveniences and eco-friendliness in a package that lives up to its name–it weighs less and it costs less. Lite, get it?

Now, there are some elements that differ from the original Pebble mattress, like the core is non-toxic foam, not latex. And the materials in the Lite mattress aren’t organic. But, really, the great features still exist in both.

The new mattress is still naturally fire-resistant, and, best of all, it still comes with the awesome Pebble Wrap, the nifty zip-on cover that makes the mattress water-, stain- and microbe-resistant. And it’s breathable, thanks to the pebble-shaped surface that encourages better air flow. Plus, the cover zips off easily and is machine washable, which is a mightily helpful feat

ure in a baby mattress, if you ask me.

I also love the fact that the mattress is designed so that infants sleep on the firm side and, down the road, it can be flipped over so toddlers can sleep on the softer side.

So, for everyone who loved the mattress before, but didn’t want to spend quite so much, the Pebble Lite is definitely worth a Nook. (Ha.)
