Once you become a parent, a good night’s sleep seems like a thing of the past, thanks to middle-of-the-night feedings and on-call monster patrol. But for those times when you actually can snuggle down in your bed (and yes, you may have a kid or two with you) having the right setup is key to getting the sleep you need. Fear not, fellow parents: we’ve found a mattress that’ll give you (and your kids!) a fantastic night’s sleep. And we tested it against our own restless nights. Read on to learn more.

What It Is: Chemical Free & Organic

There are a ton of mattress companies on the market, but few hit all of our must-have’s the way Essentia’s organic memory foam mattresses do. As parents, many of us are concerned about the number of chemicals we bring into our homes, from our food to our cleaning supplies. What we might not consider, though, is the chemicals in our mattresses—where we spend nearly a third of our time. Memory foam mattresses are some of the most recommended in the country, but aside from Essentia, they are all made from petroleum-based chemicals. Essentia, on the other hand, shares the exact ingredients used to make their foam (and the VOC report) so you can be sure it’s healthy. In addition to Hevea milk, the mattress is made with essential oils like grapefruit seed, coneflower essence and jasmine essence. Plant extracts and water are added to help achieve an amazing level of comfort.

Why You’ll Love It: Comfort

Organic is awesome and essential oil extracts a big bonus, but none of it matters if the mattress isn’t actually comfortable. As parents, we need all the rest we can get, and these mattresses are like hitting a reset button on life. No matter how many toddlers you’ve been chasing all day, you’ll get an excellent night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. Unlike other memory foam mattresses, which sleep hot, Essentia’s patented natural memory foam actually absorbs heat and wicks it away from the body, allowing it to dissipate through the mattress. In short, this is one of the most comfortable mattresses on the market.

Bonus: Warranty

Another thing that’ll help you sleep well at night is knowing that Essentia’s mattresses are made to last—twenty years in fact — and that they’re truly made responsibly, in Canada using Canadian, U.S., and Italian components.That means your little infants will be off to college before you need to even think about making a new purchase.

Essentia offers a variety of great options for the entire family, from organic crib mattresses to their new mattresses made just for growing kids’ bodies. Their organic memory foam mattresses for adults come in a variety of levels of firmness, so you can choose exactly the perfect mattress for you. You can even test them out in person at a variety of stores across the United States.
