I have long sang the praises of Naturepedic. Both of my kids sleep on their mattresses. People have asked me for years “which mattress do you recommend?” and though an organic mattress is an expense I think it’s one of the most important investments in a nursery or child’s bedroom you can make. If you are going to splurge on something, this should be in the running for consideration. Babies and toddlers spend an enormous amount of time collecting sleep. Sometimes up to 16-18 hours a day, laying on a crib mattress. Conventional mattresses are made with loads of materials that are off-gassing toxic chemicals, flame retardants and phthalates which are known to cause an abundant number of ailments and health problems. Babies and toddlers are growing at a fast rate and are particularly more sensitive to toxins in their environment.
Naturepedic is my top choice for many reasons. Filled with Certified organic cotton instead of flame retardant foam as well as food grade materials to protect the mattress and your child from moisture, dust mites and allergens. As a user of their products I can vouch for their durability. The crib mattress I used for two kids now still looks new despite the constant beating from rambunctious boys. It stands the test of time!
