When Barry Cik, an individual experienced in environmental engineering, was about to have his first grandchild he went in search of a suitable crib mattress. He found crib mattresses with vinyl and polyurethane foam. With his knowledge of chemicals, he didn't want to use them with his grandchild. When he sought out an organic mattress, he found that they were not waterproof which posed a problem for potential mold or fungus growth. That led Barry and his two sons to start Naturepedic. They desired to give parents a safe waterproof crib mattress that did not expose a child to harmful chemicals. Since that time Naturepedic has designed mattresses for bassinets and cribs, mattresses for older children and adults, as well as natural mattress pads and pillows.
Naturepedic has designed a variety of mattresses suitable for bassinets. Their mattresses for bassinets have an inner core made from environmentally friendly non-toxic plastic. Organic cotton is inside the mattress and a waterproof exterior is made from organic cotton with a polyethylene coating. The bassinet mattresses come in different sizes and shapes to fit bassinets, cradles, and portable cribs.
The crib and toddler mattresses from Naturepedic also come in different varieties. For instance, the Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Cotton Ultra Baby Crib and Toddler Mattress is available with inner coils and strong edge support while the Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Cotton Lightweight Baby Crib and Toddler Mattress is waterproof with an inner support structure made from polyethylene. Both waterproof and non-waterproof options are available. Add a Crib Airflow Pad for your crib or toddler mattress. It combines a crib sheet and a mattress pad in one. Inside the pad is a polyester lattice structure that helps increase airflow. A waterproof barrier helps protect your mattress.
When your child outgrows a crib or toddler mattress, you will also find Naturepedic mattresses for twin, full, or queen sized beds. The Naturepedic 2 in 1 Organic Cotton Ultra Mattress has an innerspring with organic cotton. One side of the mattress is quilted and the other side is waterproof. You will find it available in twin and full sizes. The Naturepedic Quilted Organic Cotton Deluxe Mattress is available in twin, full, and queen sizes.
