A few months before B arrived, it dawned on me that we were going to be needing another crib and another mattress. (I claim pregnancy brain for not thinking of it sooner). So, we acquired a new-to-us crib. That still left the mattress. In our efforts to be more aware of the things coming into our house, I remembered chatting with the Naturepedic people at two conferences. The make baby, toddler and adult mattresses are certified organic and free of harmful allergens and chemicals!
Naturepedic gets their organic cotton from local farms grown right here in the USA. And, they are regularly tested for chemical emissions and are GREENGUARD® CERTIFIED. Of course, they also meet meet CPSC firmness recommendations and fit snugly in U.S. standard size cribs.
When I went to the Naturepedic site, the first thing I noticed was that they are made in the USA and they have a Limited Lifetime Warranty. That’s definitely not something you see with other mattresses. Then, I realized how many different mattress options they had and I got overwhelmed. Quickly, that ended when I saw they had a mattress selector to help you determine which mattress would best suit your needs.
All Naturepedic products follow these principles and priorities:
Priority #1: No harmful chemicals.
Priority #2: No allergenic materials.
Priority #3: Natural, organic and renewable materials wherever possible.
Priority #4: Practical design (e.g. easy-to-clean waterproof cover).
Priority #5: Third party independent testing and verification.
After going through the selection process, I discovered that the Organic Cotton Ultra 252 Seamless 2-Stage Baby Crib & Toddler Mattress would best suit our long term and short term needs because it has both a firm infant side and a not so firm toddler side.
As soon as we took it out of the box and packaging, E and I had to test it out. It is a very comfortable mattress…I might be slightly jealous.
E wanted to test out the infant side all on her own. Can you tell it was close to nap time?
It wasn’t too heavy for a very pregnant me to put it in B’s crib (on the right) and get it all ready for her arrival. (yes, our cat is wondering why there is another crib in our house!)
And, once Miss B arrived, she had to test it out too. I think she likes it! After all, she’s even posing.
The mattress shipped incredibly fast and had no smell to it (unlike our previous mattresses). I’m very impressed with the quality and attention to detail of the mattress. I’m so happy to see that they have an adult like, too!
Naturepedic wants to give one (1) lucky reader their own Organic Cotton Ultra 252 Seamless 2-Stage Baby Crib & Toddler Mattress. It has a value of $379!!
