Naturepedic May Make You a Customized Mattress or Pad


Did you know that at Naturepedic we make custom-made pads? Sometimes babies spend a lot of time in their playpen – they might hang out there most of the day, with the playpen in the living room where mom can see them – or in their carriage. When I was younger, babies would be put in their carriage in the fresh outside air on the front porch for a nap. They could be there for a couple of hours.

Babies can also spend a lot of time in portable cribs when they go to visit family, friends or even the babysitter. And some spend hours every day in the equivalent of a car seat – the kind that can be taken out of the car to rest on tables or floors, can change positions so the baby can lie down and so on. It’s an easy way for mom to keep the baby with her no matter what she’s doing – taking the baby to the laundry room, the kitchen and so on, lets mom get things done while also spending time with the baby.

Naturepedic will make custom pads for many of these items. We’ll make them with the same materials we use for our toddler and crib mattresses so you can be sure you’re baby is not exposed to potentially toxic chemicals like PVC/vinyl or phthalates, and all the other stuff that many other brands of toddler, crib mattresses and pads contain.

Just contact us by phone or email and we’ll discuss what you need.

    I would like to have a custom organic mattress made for the Bloom Alma Mini Crib. Is that possible? Our daughter will be born in late November and will be using that crib until her older twin brothers grow out of their bigger cribs. Please let me know if this is possible and how I should order. Here is a link to the crib:,default,pd.html

    Thank you so much! Reagen

    Hi, do you make custom size mattresses for a playpen

    • Naturepedic

      Hi Maggie, we do not make a custom mattress for playpens because the manufacturers have guidelines that you should only use their mattress for the safety of the baby, as it is considered part of the structure. Using a substitute mattress may compromise the integrity of the structure, and cause safety concerns. For this reason, we do not make a mattress to fit these products. We can make the sheets and/or pads, just not the mattress. Please let me know if you have any more questions! ^Rachel

        will you be able to make a waterproof pad for the dimensions of 36 x 36 by 2″?

    Gee you had me at organic and lost me….I love what you have to say but…. how can you use latex in a mattress? I have a latex allergy..So your mattress may be no toxic but what about allergies? disappointed and I thought I had found my mattress…and the search continues I am finding everyone thinks or says their mattress is the best but when you read what they are made of, not so and the search continues.

      Hi Theresa, thanks for reaching out. We do offer a mattress made without latex. You can build your own custom EOS using our microcoil option, which will replace the latex layer. The coils are encased in a stretch-knit organic cotton outer casing and are individually wrapped for full body-contouring comfort in a lightweight yet durable polyester fabric. They resist body impressions while providing comfortable pressure point relief. They also improve breathability and heat dissipation for a cool and comfortable sleep. Exclusive construction completely avoids the use of glues and adhesives. Just choose the “Build without latex” option here:
