breathable

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. Breathability is also about physical safety. In an independent test designed to measure suffocation risk, Naturepedic achieved the lowest risk category, allowing a simulated baby to breathe directly through the breathable surface indefinitely.

how it works

The breathable surface is actually a 3-dimensional fabric that allows air to flow through the fabric and under the baby for 360° air circulation. Since air is able to pass freely through the pad’s 3D structure, babies can breathe right through the sleep surface!

practical design

The breathable function is encapsulated in a washable pad that completely hugs the mattress.  This removable layer has a waterproof backing that keeps the mattress clean and protected from urine, spit-up, and other messes.  In the event of an accident, simply replace with a spare pad or put the baby back to sleep on the fully functional underlying mattress.  The pad can then be machine washed and dried at your convenience.

why an organic breathable crib mattress?

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 sleep surface the baby can actually breathe through may be helpful in providing an extra level of protection. A breathable sleep surface can also improve temperature regulation and reduce overheating.

more comortable

Airflow under the baby means less sweaty backs and a lower risk of overheating. Moisture can more easily evaporate while heat can dissipate more efficiently. All this translates into a baby that's more comfortable, and hence, more likely to sleep through the night!

safer

More sources of air equals safer sleep. While in their crib, babies can typically breathe air from above and from the sides. With Naturepedic breathable technology, they can also breathe from below if necessary. In an independent test designed to measure suffocation risk, Naturepedic achieved the lowest risk category, allowing a simulated baby to breathe directly through the breathable surface indefinitely. 

Conducted by an independent third-party accredited laboratory.

so what is your baby actually breathing for 10-14 hours a day?

The last  thing you need is for your baby to be breathing flame retardants, VOC off-gassing, mold, mildew and other microbial growth. Sadly, many other breathable crib mattress designs are susceptible to these dangers. With Naturepedic, you get ORGANIC plus BREATHABLE! You also get an easy, practical approach to keeping your baby's sleep environment clean and hygienic WITHOUT sacrificing comfort or safety.

"The data clearly shows that Naturepedic crib mattresses with a breathable pad cover are five (5) times below the threshold of what is considered suffocation risk under the worst possible scenarios... it is not prudent to remove the waterproofing from a crib mattress as that only creates non-hygienic conditions... a safer approach is to keep the mattress hygienic and to add a breathable layer as is done with Naturepedic."
