Naturepedic-No-Compromise Organic Cotton Ultra Crib Mattress

When I first got pregnant with our second little one I started looking for a new crib mattress since we were going to have to move Monkey out of his crib and into a toddler bed.  I wanted to find something that was safe for our little one to use, but also comfortable and good quality that will last for a long time (especially with the abuse that it gets from being jumped on, peed on, and messed with by a two year old). In all of my mattress searches I came across Naturepedic.   
 Naturepedic is the first and only mattress company to specialize exclusively in the design and manufacturing of infant and children's mattresses that promote natural and organic materials, a non-toxic design, fire-safety, and baby health. All of Naturepedics products are regularly tested for chemical emissions and are certified by GREENGUARD® to meet their strict standards for children. So why is picking a quality and safe crib mattress such a big deal? Generally most mattresses use materials such as vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam which release chemicals over time. With the No-Compromise crib/toddler mattress these materials and chemicals have been eliminated so they are safe for your baby. As we all know babies spend up to 70% of their early life sleeping and playing on a crib mattress, so a safe mattress is a big deal! My baby’s health and safety is a huge deal to me and I will do anything in my power to keep him safe. As I do while I am pregnant, I try as much as i can to stay away from harmful chemicals or substances that could be a detriment to my growing baby......shouldn't we do the same for our children that
are already born! OF COURSE!

Naturepedic makes every size of mattress (besides king) including bassinet and cradle mattresses, along with changing pads, mattress pads, sheets, pillows, and much more. Naturepedic products have been made to where all hazardous chemicals found in conventional mattresses are removed.  In addition, Naturepedic does not sacrifice critical features and benefits such as waterproofing and a hypoallergenic design. With a toddler that is going to be potty training soon, a waterproof mattress is a huge deal for us. Accidents happen with little ones and you don't want to have a mattress that will just soak up liquid! 

All Naturepedic products follow these principles and priorities:
Priority #1: No harmful chemicals.
Priority #2: No allergenic materials.
Priority #3: Practical design (e.g. easy-to-clean waterproof cover).
Priority #4: Natural, organic and renewable materials wherever possible.
Priority #5: Third party independent testing and verification.

I was so excited when I was contacted by Naturepedic to do a review for them! I was sent their No-Compromise Organic Baby Crib Mattress to try out with Monkeys new toddler bed.  Monkey has always been a good sleeper. He slept through the night when he was 4 months old, has always taken good naps (well, usually), and only wakes up during the night if he is not feeling well. His crib has always been a place of comfort to him, so I was a little concerned when we were changing beds and mattresses at the same time. I wasn't sure if a different mattress meant that he wouldn't sleep as well at night. I had nothing to worry about! My little man sleeps so well on his new mattress it isn't even funny! He loves going into his room at random times during the day and just laying down on his "nigh nigh" bed, and when he wakes up in the morning after a good night sleep he is as happy as a lark.

    The No-Compromise crib mattress is made with Heavy-duty orthopedic inner springs and has a firm flat surface that provides the ideal support that a baby/toddler needs. What is also cool about this mattress is that it has a slightly firmer side for infants and a slightly softer side for toddlers.  It features an additional AirCore support on infant side.

    The mattress is made with an organic cotton filling that is unbleached, undyed, and grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. Cotton is an ideal filling material for mattresses since it is both natural and renewable. It is not man-made with chemicals, but grown naturally and provides a healthy and comfortable sleep environment for children and adults.

    In my opinion the Naturepedic mattress that we received is top-quality. We are extremely happy with the quality, comfort, durability, and safety of the mattress. The mattress fits perfectly in our crib and on Monkeys toddler bed and the sheets fit nice and snug over the mattress.

    I would definitely recommend any and all Naturepedic mattresses, and any of their other bedding accessories for all babies out there! Do the research when you are looking for a mattress and you will find that Naturepedic has the highest quality and safest baby crib mattresses out there!
