Since 1984, The Natural Bedding Company has been handcrafting mattresses in the Inner West of Sydney. We use only top quality organic and sustainable materials. We have mattresses to suit every member of the family – including newborns and those with serious allergies. Whether you like your mattress hard, soft or something in between, we’re certain that you’ll find one that’s just right for you. From our Marrickville workshop, we personally deliver to nearby suburbs and through our trusted couriers we can deliver to Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, and all other major cities as well as many regional areas.

Inspiration Gallery

Mattress firmness is an especially important consideration for infants and growing children. A firm mattress is recommended for children under 18 months old for safety and to assist with proper development. Once your child is ready to move from their cot (if they have been sleeping in one), it really becomes a matter of personal preference, just like it is for adults. With most kids often not weighing enough for their body to drastically sink into their mattress, it means they don’t always require a mattress that has all the bells and whistles. 

Our most popular options for toddlers, kids, and young teens are the Aurora, Artemis and Cloud 7. All of these mattresses are a medium-firm feel, feature our 7 posture zone support system, and include a 10-year manufacturer's warranty. Any of the mattress suggestions above should last your little one well into teens/adulthood, provided regular maintenance is carried out and our care instructions are followed. 

Our all natural, handmade cot & bassinet mattresses are a great choice for parents who want their babies to sleep on natural materials from day one, minimising their risk of exposure to toxic materials.These mattresses are custom made in our own Sydney workshop, with a coir core for firmness, layered with pure Australian Downs wool (a great thermoregulator) in a certified Organic Cotton cover. 

We have been in the mattress making business since 1984 and understand that as the market has grown so have the shapes and sizes of cots and bassinets. These mattresses are made to the specific dimensions you require, with no additional fee for any customisations up to 132x76cm. Please contact us if you need something larger than this. We do require a template of the mattress if it has rounded corners or the shape is anything other than a rectangle/square. Please note that the thickness of the mattresses is not customisable, as the current layering is designed and tested, with your baby’s safety the main concern, to comply with AS/NZS Voluntary Standard 8811.1:2013: Methods of testing infant products – Sleep surfaces – Test for firmness.

Coir, rubberised coconut fibres, is used as the core piece for our custom cot & bassinet mattresses due to its high density of 85kgm³, providing a solid yet supportive base for your baby's developing body. The coir offers minimal cushioning so we have added a layer of untreated Australian Downs wool which is also a great thermoregulator. These layers are hand stitched through a method called tufting, into an Organic Cotton cover. The entire process is free from toxic chemicals, synthetic materials and glues. We decided to use coir instead of latex due to its higher density, and the fact that it does not allow for any ‘sinking in’ like latex can. 

Partner disturbance can be frustrating and we understand how important getting a good night sleep is! We have found that because the high-quality Organic Latex we use in our mattresses isn't as 'jelly-like' as memory foams or as rigid as a traditional innerspring mattress, movement is more easily absorbed and the mattress doesn’t react in the same way. The mattresses in our range containing the cushioning layers of latex performed higher during the product testing phase when it came to reducing partner disturbance. As mattress feel is very subjective, we always recommend light sleepers come into one of our showrooms or stockists to find out which style will suit their needs best when possible. 

Our GOLS certified carbon-neutralised Organic Latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and dust-mite resistant. It’s great for anyone sensitive to synthetic products or chemicals, and produces very little off-gassing. It also lasts for years – it should be 20+ years before you’ll see any sign of indentation in your mattress. 

The Organic Latex we use offers wonderful support and our 10 unique layering designs allows our range to cater for varying levels of firmness and comfort. Grown in Sri-Lanka the process to create this latex involves the milk of the rubber tree being sustainably harvested then whipped and baked to make the Organic Latex foam. In our Sydney workshop, we assemble the latex layers, using varied thicknesses and densities to create the different levels of firmness and softness. Most of our designs include a layer of Australian Downs Wool, these layers are all sewn (tufted) by hand into an Organic Cotton and hemp cover. We use the method of tufting to keep our layers together in order to avoid using glues and unnecessary toxic chemicals. 

While memory foam and polyfoam can offer some support, they tend to get hot very quickly and many of these synthetic mattresses are manufactured with harsh & toxic chemicals. Latex has an open cell structure which allows heat to dissipate so you can keep cool and comfortable throughout the night. All this while being completely natural and free from toxic chemicals. We have been manufacturing natural mattresses ourselves since 1984 and take great pride in creating products that are healthy for you & the planet, and are genuinely made with love and care.

One of the reasons that we use Organic Latex in our mattresses is for its longevity; latex can retain its shape for a long period of time when it is cared for correctly and doesn't tend compress with time or use like wool does. Over the years we have found that wool can compress and change the shape and feel of the mattress over time, which is why we have opted for a thin 1-2cm layer of wool around our mattress rather than featuring it as a larger component.

An additional benefit of our Organic Latex mattresses is their natural anti-microbial and dustmite-resistant properties. Our mattresses are encased in Untreated Australian Downs wool, so you will receive the same benefits of an Organic Wool mattress, such as thermo-regulation and a mattress that is naturally flame-retardant but with the benefits of the Organic Latex.

All of our mattresses come with a 10-year warranty but are expected to last longer. We have had clients provide feedback that their mattress has lasted 15-20 years and still provides the comfort and support they require.

As our products are not treated with heavy chemicals to deter things like mould, we do recommend a slatted base and a little extra upkeep. Flipping your mattress regularly will assist with airflow to the components of your mattress that can be prone to mould growth. Latex itself is naturally anti-microbial and is not a mould or allergen conducive environment, it is however the padding layers, untreated downs wool & Organic Cotton & Hemp covers, where mould can develop.  Additionally, we do not use any fire retardants or popular chemicals like Benzene, Dimethylformamide, TDI and Polyols which you may find in synthetic, mainstream mattresses. 

Worth it for a safe sleep environment if you ask us! 

If you have any questions about mattress upkeep and assistance deciding whether or not a TNBC mattress is right for you, please email

We do! You can view our Organic Latex Topper here, or if you prefer wool for it’s thermoregulation properties and some additional cushioning, we also offer an Organic Latex and Wool Topper. These can be made to suit any size bed, even custom beds in campers and tiny homes. 

A topper is a great option for adding an additional layer of cushioning to a mattress that is feeling too firm, or if you want to invest in a natural and organic sleep surface but are not quite ready to commit to a whole new mattress. Either way, please be aware it does change the feel of the mattress below and that any dipping or sagging in your existing mattress will cause the topper to mould to this. 

If you are having trouble deciding on a mattress online and are unable to try the mattresses in-store, we occasionally suggest some of our customers go with the firmer option as you can always make a mattress softer with a topper, but it is much more difficult to change a mattress to make it firmer! 

Organic Cot and Bassinet Mattresses

Handcrafted from premium natural materials with love and care, our wool and coir bassinet and cot mattresses provide the firm support your little one needs. We understand how important it is for infants and toddlers to have a healthy sleeping environment. As a result we’ve created a bassinet mattress and a cot mattress that is extremely low in VOCs and made with 100% natural materials, so there are no nasty synthetics or harmful toxins hiding within. Moreover, each bassinet and cot mattress undergoes rigorous testing to comply with the AS/NZS Voluntary Standard for firmness to ensure your child can sleep peacefully and safely. 

As all of our natural mattresses are custom and handmade to order in our own Sydney workshop, we are able to allow for some customisation. Should the bassinet be other than a rectangular shape with right-angled corners, please provide a template.

If you’d like to come in to one of our showrooms to view one of our natural cot or bassinet mattress for yourself, we offer our full range at our StanmoreMarrickvilleUltimo Sydney showroom and our new Gold Coast showroom in Carrara. Trying our organic mattress in turn is the best way to get a real sense of our quality and for mattress firmness. Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like further information about any of our products, we are always happy to help.


Benefits of Natural Materials

Coconut Coir
Crafted from the shredded fibres of coconut shells and rubberised with GOLS Certified liquid Organic Latex, coconut coir provides firm, even support. Perfect for use in both our cot and bassinet mattresses, the firm support from a coir core is also popular with those who prefer a more robust feel. Due to the latex coating, the coir is naturally dust-mite resistant and anti-fungal.

Untreated Australian Downs Wool
The natural wool we use as the outer layer in most of our mattresses is a pure, untreated Downs wool sourced from Victoria and South Australia. The wool does not undergo any chemical treatments, only being washed with a mild detergent and then carded to ensure it retains its soft, natural feel.

Learn more about the organic materials we use in our products on our materials page

Sustainability and Ethically Manufacturing

In a range of our products, you will find Untreated Australian Downs Wool. Sourced from Victoria and South Australia we use wool of the highest standard that has not been highly chemically processed. Not only does this make the wool great for chemically sensitive individuals but it also reduces the toxic waste produced from the wool industry.

The wool we use is washed with a mild detergent and then carded. It doesn't undergo typical processes like 'carbonisation' which is a chemically intensive process that strips the wool of plant debris as well as much of the natural lanolin found in wool.

Similar to our Latex, once your products containing our Untreated Australian Downs Wool reach the end of their lifetime they can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. The wool can either be used for composting or repurposed for a multitude of different uses, such as mulch in your garden, it is great for preventing weeds and retaining moisture.
