Breathable crib mattresses are all about added safety and comfort. Should your baby roll over to be face down, having a breathable surface is an excellent idea. According to an independent test designed to measure suffocation risk, Naturepedic scored in the lowest risk category! Naturepedic breathable crib mattresses are also more comfortable. Airflow under the baby allows heat to dissipate more efficiently for less sweaty backs and a reduced risk of overheating. We do breathability right with our unique and practical approach.
Breathable crib mattresses are all about added comfort and safety. Simply put, babies tend to cry more when they're uncomfortable. Airflow under the baby allows heat to dissipate more efficiently, helping regulate temperature for less sweaty backs and a reduced risk of overheating. According to airflow tests, breathability may also increase safety by allowing air to flow more freely around the baby.
The CPSC recommends putting babies to sleep on their backs, and we fully back this recommendation. According to the CPSC, "Placing babies to sleep on their backs instead of their stomachs has been associated with a dramatic decrease in deaths from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)". With that said, however, there will likely come a time when your baby will turn face down in his or her sleep. That's when having a breathable cover the baby can actually breathe through may be helpful in providing an extra level of protection. A breathable cover can also improve temperature regulation and reduce overheating.
