Nolah Nurture 10 Overview
- Great for Combination Sleepers: The Nolah Nurture mattress is a good choice for people who often change sleeping positions because it is responsive and allows for easy movement, making it suitable for side, back, and stomach sleepers.
- Breathable: The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress is also designed to be breathable and cool. This is important for kids who tend to sleep hot at night.
- Pressure Relief: Since kids are still growing and developing, their bodies need time to rest and repair. A mattress that provides good pressure relief can help improve muscle recovery by evenly distributing weight and reducing pressure points. The Nolah Nurture mattress is made with Talalay latex, which is a naturally pressure-relieving material. Thus, it has a high-pressure relief score, which means that it is well-suited for kids who are active.
- Hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant: The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress is made with natural materials, such as latex and wool, that are naturally hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, and it has a wool cover that provides additional protection. This quality helps to reduce allergies and asthma symptoms.
- The firm side may not be suitable for all children: The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress has a firm side that may not be suitable for all children. This is because the firm side provides more support than the soft side, and some children may find it too firm.
Who we Recommend the Nolah Nurture 10 for
- Children who are active: The Nolah Nurture 10 is a good choice for children who are active because it provides good pressure relief. This can help prevent pain and stiffness, and it can also help kids sleep more soundly.
- Children who are sensitive to chemicals: The Nolah Nurture 10 is a good choice for children who are sensitive to chemicals because it is CertiPUR-US and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified. This means that it is free of harmful chemicals and emissions.
- Parents looking for a durable mattress for their child: The Nolah Nurture 10 is designed to be durable for children. The mattress is made with all-natural materials, including Talalay latex, organic cotton, cooling wool, and recycled steel coils. These materials are known for their durability and longevity.
- People who want a flippable mattress: This is because the Nolah Nurture 10 is made with two different layers of foam: a soft Talalay latex layer on top and a firm Talalay latex layer on the bottom. This allows you to choose the side that best suits your needs. If you prefer a softer mattress, you can sleep on the soft side. If you prefer a firmer mattress, you can sleep on the firm side.
Unboxing the Nolah Nurture 10
When it comes to delivery and unboxing, it is very important that the experience meets your expectations. That is why Nolah ships their mattresses, including the Nurture 10, compressed in an eco-friendly box with beautiful artwork.
Upon delivery, simply unbox it and place it on your child's bed frame using the handles on the side for easy lifting since the mattress weighs around 72–96 pounds. Remove the plastic wrapping and the mattress will expand to its full size in a matter of minutes, However, we recommend waiting a few hours for the mattress to fully expand all the way to the edges.
The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress may produce off-gassing when you first unbox it. This is because the mattress is made with materials, such as latex and wool, which can release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) as they off-gas.
However, the off-gassing from the Nolah Nurture 10 mattress is not harmful and should dissipate within a few days. You can help speed up the off-gassing process by airing out the mattress in a well-ventilated area.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Nolah Nurture 10
Nolah Nurture 10 Firmness
The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress is a medium-firm mattress, according to our scale. This means that it is not too soft or too firm, providing a comfortable balance of support and pressure relief for most people.
The mattress has two sides with different firmness levels. One side is softer and was designed specifically for younger children because it almost feels as if you’re sleeping on clouds. This side feels like a 5 out of 10 on our firmness scale, thus, providing a comfortable cushioning feel. The plush side is a good choice if you prefer a soft mattress or need pressure relief in the shoulders and hips.
The other side has a firmness level of 7 which is targeted mainly at older children who may need support and stability. The firm side is a good choice if you prefer a firm mattress or need more support in the lower back.
|Choose Plush If:||Choose Firm If:|
|- Ages below 10||- Ages above 10|
|- Weigh less than 100lbs||- Weigh more than 100lbs|
|- Side Sleepers||- Stomach/Back Sleepers|
Nolah Nurture 10 Feel
The outermost layer of the Nolah Nurture 10 is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton that will give your child a very luxurious and comfy night's sleep. Not only that, but they will feel cool sleeping on this mattress all night since it is breathable and temperature-regulating. The Nolah Nurture 10 also has a bouncy and responsive feel thanks to its coil system and Talalay latex foam.
Nolah Nurture 10 Comfort
The Nolah Nurture 10 is a versatile mattress that is comfortable for a variety of different sleepers. We tested the mattress in a variety of sleeping positions to see how comfortable it feels given its key features, such as level of firmness. We found that the mattress was comfortable in all positions, although some positions were more comfortable than others.
The Nolah Nurture 10 mattress is comfortable for a wide range of people because it has two sides with different firmness levels. This gives you the ability to try and choose which side suits your child best.
Being a medium-firm mattress, it is expected to hold weights ranging from 35 to 140 pounds with minimal sinkage.

Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
This mattress is designed to support your child’s growth and development in their early years.
The Nolah Nurture is a 10-inch-tall hybrid mattress that is made with long-lasting, hypoallergenic, and GOTS-certified natural materials like Talalay latex and coils for support. These materials make it more breathable and help regulate the temperature. The Talalay Latex makes the mattress more durable than others on the market.
To achieve exceptional performance, Nolah Nurture 10 has 7 layers that all come together to create an innovative, luxurious, and comfortable mattress.
Layer 1 Organic Cotton Cover - The Nolah Nurture Mattress is covered in this durable, GOTS-certified cover that gives a luxurious, breathable soft feel.
Layer 2 Wool Layer - A cool and breathable wool layer that acts as a natural fire barrier and adds comfort as well as helps to regulate temperature and wick away moisture.
Layer 3 Soft Talalay Latex Comfort Layer - A 2-inch layer on the mattress's plush side of pressure-relieving, breathable soft Talalay latex.
Layer 4 HDMax™️ Tri-Zone™️ Support Coil System - A 6-inch layer of coils that adds optimal support, responsiveness, and durability.
Layer 5 Firm Talalay Latex Comfort Layer - This is the firmer side of the mattress. It is a 2-inch layer of a more firm Talalay latex that gives a more supported sleep and less sinkage.
Layer 6 Wool Layer - This is just a duplicate of the 2nd layer so the firm side can have the same benefits as the plush side.
Layer 7 Organic Cotton Bottom Cover - At the bottom is also an organic cotton cover with handles that make lifting and moving the mattress a piece of cake.
Performance of Nolah Nurture 10
The Nolah Nurture 10 does an exceptional job of keeping the mattress cool all night long because its pocketed coil support core helps keep the mattress cool. The coils are individually wrapped, which allows air to flow freely between them. This prevents body heat from building up and makes the mattress feel cooler. The wool and cotton cover also helps to wick away moisture, which further helps to regulate the temperature of the mattress.
We did our usual cooling performance test, which is done by lying down for 20 minutes and measuring heat dissipation on both the mattress's sides. As expected, the mattress felt cool throughout the whole test, especially on the firmer side.
Thus, we gave the cooling performance a score of 5/5.
A responsive mattress will quickly return to its original shape after you move on it, thus allowing you to move freely and sleep in all positions without feeling stuck or bogged down.
The materials, like Talalay latex, used in designing the Nolah Nurture 10 are a reason for its responsiveness. The pocketed coil support core also helps to add to its responsiveness. Pocketed coils are individually wrapped, which allows them to move independently of each other. This helps to reduce motion transfer and allows the mattress to conform to your body more easily.
We tested the responsiveness of the mattress by placing a 20-pound ball on it and then measuring how long it took the mattress to return to its original shape after the ball was removed.
As expected, the mattress performed exceptionally well. The mattress’s latex support allowed a quick shape recovery. This means that your kid will have no problems moving around and will not feel stuck.
We gave the Nolah Nurture 10 mattress’s response time a score of 4.9/5
This mattress, as mentioned before, has a layer of coils between the two latex layers, which makes it a bit bouncy.
We conducted two tests to measure the motion isolation performance of the mattress. The first test involved placing a glass full of water on one side of the mattress and dropping a 20-pound ball on the other side. We observed the motion propagation to the glass of water to determine how much movement was transferred from one side of the mattress to the other. Since the mattress has some bounce to it, the water in the glass moved a little when the ball was dropped.
The second test involved rolling on one side of the mattress and having our partners report the motion they felt on the other side of the mattress. This test allowed us to quantify the amount of motion that was transferred from one side of the mattress to the other. During this test, minimal motion was reported, but nothing too extreme.
This could be an issue when sharing a bed with someone. However, since this is mainly a kid’s mattress, the bed isn’t shared, so this won’t be a deal-breaker. The soft side of the Nolah Nurture 10 mattress has a Talalay latex layer that absorbs movement more effectively than the firm side. The firm side is slightly more responsive, but both surfaces provide adequate motion isolation.
Therefore, the mattress scored a solid 4.7/5 in our motion isolation tests.
The Nolah Nurture 10 model’s pocketed coil structure also helps in supporting these edges and keeps them from sinking in too much, as well as reinforced perimeter springs to strengthen corners and edges.
The firm side of the Nolah Nurture 10 mattress has a slight advantage over the soft side in terms of edge support. The soft side's latex is slightly more likely to compress at the edges. However, both surfaces adequately support kids who use the entire mattress over the course of the night.
We did our usual edge ball sinkage test and found that there was a slight dip. That indicates that this might not be suitable for adults, and that’s fine because it will perform great for children or lightweight sleepers in general.
The mattress scored a solid 4.9/5 in our edge support test.
To test if this mattress makes any kind of noise when moving on it, we did our noise ball drop test where we dropped a heavy ball and listened to any noises through our highly sensitive mics that may occur.
Although coil mattresses are expected to squeak, to our surprise, we didn’t notice any squeaking or noises.
Which is why we gave this mattress a noise score of 5/5.
The Nolah Nurture takes pressure relief to the heart. The layered construction provides excellent pressure relief, regardless of sleeping position.
For example, the coils used by Nolah mattresses allow the mattress to conform to your body shape and are made with natural materials, such as latex and wool, that have cooling properties, and promote pressure relief. This can help reduce pain and improve your kids' sleep quality.
We used our pressure relief test, which consists of taking a 20-minute nap on each side of the mattress and then measuring the pressure on different body zones. The pressure map below shows how the mattress responds to each sleeping position.
This test showed that the Nolah Nurture 10 provided some of the best pain and pressure relief performance we have ever seen for a kids' mattress.
The pressure map above shows the pressure points that the mattress may cause, which are very minimal to nonexistent. As you can see, the mattress had a nearly entirely blue pressure map, which provided excellent pressure relief throughout the body in all sleeping positions.
Side sleepers under 130 pounds and those who experience pressure point discomfort should choose the soft side of the Nolah Nurture 10 mattress, as its latex formulation compresses deeply to cradle high-impact areas. While the soft side offers the deepest pressure relief, we also gave the firm side above-average scores during performance testing.
This is why the Nolah Nurture 10 has an outstanding score of 5/5.
