Newton Baby’s founder, Michael Rothbard, is a sleep industry veteran who is proud to share the best the company has to offer from their families to yours.
Michael Rothbard is a third-generation sleep entrepreneur with over thirty years of experience in the industry. As a founder and entrepreneur, he has devoted his career to the pursuit of all things beneficial to a good night’s sleep for the whole family. Newton Baby was born out of concern as a parent of three young children that existing baby sleep surfaces weren’t breathable enough to ensure adequate airflow. Upon learning about Wovenaire technology, Michael knew that a mattress comprised of this unique fabric would quell his concerns, and the “rest” is history.
