Many parents are deciding to use organic products to reduce their child’s exposure to chemicals. Babies spend much of their first year sleeping and choosing an organic crib mattress pad will reduce your baby’s exposure to off-gassed chemicals. You will want to choose an organic crib mattress pad that is appropriate for your child’s age and one that will complement the type of mattress you have.
The Naturepedic Organic Mattress Protector Pad comes with waterproof and non-waterproof options. If your baby’s mattress is not waterproof then the NaturepedicWaterproof Organic Mattress Protector Pad will protect your mattress from accidents and provide a dust mite barrier. It is made from two layers of soft organic flannel with a layer of waterproofing sandwiched in between. The waterproofing technology is designed to help your baby feel dry even in hot and clammy conditions. It is available in a flat sheet that fits on the top of the mattress or in a fitted style. It can also be used over a waterproof mattress if you don’t want to wipe down the mattress after an accident.
What if your baby’s mattress is waterproof already? You have two options. You can use a waterproof mattress pad for easy clean-up or you can use a mattress pad that is not waterproof and just wipe down the mattress when you change the mattress pad. The Naturepedic Non-Waterproof OrganicMattress Protector Pad is made from two layers of soft organic cotton flannel material. This comfortable organic crib mattress pad comes in a fitted style. Both the waterproof and non-waterproof Naturepedic mattress pads are free from vinyl, phthalates, and latex.
If a highly breathable sleeping surface is important to you then take a look at the Naturepedic Crib Airflow Pad. It provides greater air circulation and protects your mattress at the same time. This mattress pad features two layers of organic cotton with a polyester lattice structure in between to provide excellent temperature control. The lattice structure is also designed to relieve pressure points so your baby has a comfortable sleeping surface. The bottom of the pad has a waterproof barrier that is non-toxic. It can be used with waterproof and non-waterproof mattresses. It fits on your baby’s crib mattress like a fitted sheet and can be machine washed and dried.
When your baby has grown into a toddler and is using a crib mattress in a crib or a toddler bed the Naturepedic Organic Cotton QuiltedMattress Topper will provide a comfortable organic surface for your little one. This organic mattress pad is not waterproof so it is best used over a waterproof mattress. The pillowtop-like quilting is made from organic cotton and PLA fiber, a polymer made from plants. PLA fiber is designed to hold its shape wash after wash.
You can reduce your baby’s exposure to chemicals and provide them a high quality and comfortable sleeping surface at the same time. Thanks Mama offers organic crib mattress pads, organic crib bedding, and organic mattresses to help you provide the optimal sleeping surface for your baby.
