Naturepedic No Compromise Organic Crib Mattress

Natural & Organic Crib Mattress, Waterproof Crib Mattress Pads & BeddingI have to admit, when the word “organic” comes to mind, I think of fresh fruit, yummy salads and cookies made with homemade ingredients; Not bedding. So when my friends asked me what kind of crib mattress I was going to choose for my newborn baby, my initial response was, “1-800 mattress should do the trick.” After a few vacant stares, and some minor lecturing, I quickly realized my mistake. But hey, I was a new-mom-to-be, and I had no clue.

Don’t get me wrong, my child’s safety is extremely important to me, I just never realized how much care and attention should go into choosing your child’s bedding, nor did I realize that “going organic” was even an option. So I decided to do a little research and find out what the big fuss was all about.

After a few swift clicks of my mouse, I was in shock. I discovered that most baby and children’s mattresses typically use vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam, materials which release questionable chemicals over time. Who knew?! Furthermore, many companies are not required to divulge the ingredients in their flame-retardants. Most contain PBDE, which has been shown by the Washington State Department of Ecology to cause problems in rodent brain development. Um, no thanks.

Immediately, the hunt to find the safest, most perfect bedding began. And let me say that it didn’t take long to figure out that the “No Compromise Ultra Traditional” crib mattress by Naturepedic was the highest quality mattress on the market. I knew I had to try it.

Immediately after receiving the crib mattress by Naturepedic, I knew I had made the right choice. Not only has it changed my world, (and my child’s), it has been one of the most rewarding products I’ve had since having my baby girl. I can honestly say that each time I place her in her crib, I know that I’m putting her in a clean, healthy and safe environment.

To start with, unlike other normal mattress companies, Naturepedic is completely natural and organic and does not use any harmful and unsafe ingredients in their products. Their mattresses have also been tested for chemical emissions and certified by GREENGUARD® to meet their strict standards for children. A huge must!

The list of benefits for using Naturepedic are endless, but for those of you who are as clueless and I once was, here are a few reasons?

• It features an amazingly soft premium organic cotton fabric for increased durability and a nicer finish. It also has an easy-to-clean 100% polyethylene waterproof surface. (Key for those bad spills and icky accidents!)

• It is made with an organic cotton fabric and filling, which is unbleached, undyed, and grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers.

• It has a firm flat surface and provides the ideal support in accordance with pediatrician and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) firmness recommendations.

• It is hypoallergenic and has a dust mite barrier cover which creates no need for an additional dust mite barrier encasing. Also, because there is no wool or latex, that means there is no need to worry about these potentially high allergy materials.

• It has an exclusive fire protection system, featuring a non-toxic and naturally derived fire barrier system that is safe and effective. It meets and exceeds all Federal and State flammability standards without the use of harmful chemicals.

• And, there is no need to toss your mattress after your baby gets bigger! It features a 2-stage dual firmness option, meaning it provides a slightly firmer side for infants and a slightly softer side for toddlers! (More bang for your buck? )

So there you have it, my journey on learning a very valuable lesson.
As a true health nut, I vow that I will never again question going organic when it comes to my child. For me, there is no price for peace of mind and that goes for good salads and good bedding!
