We spend half our lives in our beds sleeping so it makes sense that it should be a safe environment right? Today I’d like to tell you about Naturepedic who are the first and only mattress company to specialize exclusively in the design and manufacturing of infants and children’s mattresses that promote natural and organic materials, are non toxic and fire and baby safe.
Naturepedic was found by an environmental engineer, Barry Cik, after he went shopping for a crib mattress for his first grandchild. He was disappointed because all he could find were mattresses containing vinyl/PVC, polyurethane foam, and various other nasty chemicals. He knew the dangers of these chemicals and would not buy this type of mattress for his grandbaby. He then went to search out the organic crib mattresses and found problems there too! They all either contained latex or wool and were not waterproof. All it would take is the mattress to get wet to have fungus and mold to grow- yuck!
Barry and his two sons founded Naturepedic and make it a company dedicated to providing parents with an organic and non toxic crib mattress that is also waterproof. They have since expanded their product line to twin, full, and queen mattresses, changing pads, mattress pads, and sheets to name a few. All their mattresses contain NO harmful chemicals or allergenic materials, have a practical design with an easy to clean waterproof cover, have natural, organic and renewable materials and have been independently tested and verified by a third party (GREENGUARD).
I reviewed the Waterproof Organic Mattress Protector Pad for a double bed. It’s made from 100% organic cotton flannel fabric making it soft, breathable and lightweight. It is supposed to reduce uneven temperatures, sweating and clamminess.
It was very easy to put over top of our mattress. It has a elastic straps that secure to the mattress and it stays put once secured. I put my sheets over top of it so you don’t even know its there. I noticed that it made my mattress feel softer and more comfy. My boyfriend sweats at night so it being waterproof is great since it will keep our mattress from getting all icky.
I like knowing that it is chemical free. I have latex sensitivities so I need to be careful of anything containing latex. It’s also very easy to care for and is machine washable. It can be dried in the dryer on low. We sometimes eat and drink in bed (I know it’s not good to do that!) so having our mattress protected from spills is great.
Overall, I am impressed with my mattress pad and think Naturepedic is an awesome company and if I ever had any more kids, I would definitely buy one of their crib mattresses now that I more aware of what’s on the market.
