The Benefits of a Pocket Sprung Mattress

Wake them up with a spring in their step with our NEW Natural Sprung Mattress range! With your baby spending on average 14 hours a day sleeping, you’ll want to be sure they’re getting the best night’s sleep, naturally. With so many different options available, how do you choose the right mattress for your little one? Read on to find out why pocket sprung mattresses are a great option for your child.

Progressive Support

At The Little Green Sheep, we’ve been championing the importance of a natural night’s sleep for well over a decade. Our new range of Sprung Mattresses is a real first, providing dual-sided support for your little one. With firm support for your baby as recommended by sleep experts, simply flip it over at 12 months for more progressive support into toddlerhood and beyond.


From the luxuriously soft fleece wool and naturally sourced coconut coir at the core, to the 100% cosy cotton cover, our natural pocket sprung mattresses are made using only the finest materials. Every layer is designed to provide maximum comfort, with the premium individual pocket springs there to further support your child and evenly distribute their weight as they grow.

Pocket sprung mattresses are ideal for supporting any sleeping position, and are especially good at relieving pressure from joints and muscles.

Better Temperature Regulation

Pocket sprung mattresses are known not only for their comfort, but also their superior breathability. This is especially true of natural mattresses. Combine the two, and your little one’s bedtimes will likely be as cool and comfy as they come!

Unlike foam mattresses that are known for trapping heat and moisture in, our Natural Sprung Mattresses are made from naturally air-permeable materials. Air is able to flow between the pocket springs, coconut coir, wool, and through the soft cotton cover to provide a dry sleep environment for your little one. Wool also happens to be naturally temperature-regulating, as well as a natural fire-retardant - it truly is a wonder material, and without a doubt the magic ingredient in our mattresses!


While the same can’t be said for all pocket sprung mattresses, we’re proud to say that all of our mattresses are anti-dust mite, and free from any nasties and harmful chemicals. As well as being super soft and temperature-regulating, wool is - you guessed it - also anti-allergenic! Featured in all of our mattresses, it really adds that extra something to ensure only the best night’s sleep. You could just say it’s a perk of going natural!

Luxurious Comfort

All of these features combine to offer your little one a truly luxurious night’s sleep. The comfort and support offered by pocket sprung mattresses is truly incomparable, especially not when held up against man-made memory foam and synthetic mattresses.

Now you’re up to speed on the benefits of pocket sprung mattresses, why not give our range a browse today, and ensure your little one gets only the most natural support as they grow.
