There is just no way to prepare yourself for how much you will contemplate sleep as a new parent -- your sleep, of course (or lack thereof), but more often, baby’s. And while you can’t predict whether you’re going to get a sleeper or not, but you can at least help your cause by creating a safe and sleep-inducing environment for baby.

You’ll certainly get your fair share of advice from hours of googling “how to get baby to sleep” and countless conversation with everyone from your pediatrician to the old lady sitting next to you on the subway. Take it all in because something is bound to click.

But also remember what your child sleeps on (and in!) totally matters too! From a healthy, breathable crib mattress, like this brand new one from Newton, to organic pajamas that you’ll wish they made in your size, here’s our Green Week picks for safe and sound sleep. Because when baby’s sleeping, you can too.
