non-toxic waterproofing

Only Naturepedic baby crib mattresses feature a patented food-grade waterproof surface made from non-GMO sugarcane. Most crib mattresses today use questionable materials such as Vinyl/PVC, PFAS or are not waterproof at all! A waterproof surface is the first step towards a healthy and hygienic sleep environment and is  essential for preventing urine, spit-up and other messes from penetrating inside the mattress. Once inside, these fluids can wreak havoc, growing a garden of mold, bacteria and other microbials (we love gardens, but not this kind).

We even incorporate waterproofing in our popular breathable models to ensure the insides stay clean and sanitary. After all, mold and bacteria are the last things you want your baby breathing night after night.

organic cotton fabric, waterproofed!

We start with a certified organic cotton fabric, then melt a clear food-grade waterproof coating on top. The coating is embossed with a unique micro-pattern for a luxurious finish. No glues or adhesives are used in the process whatsoever. The resulting fabric is impenetrable to all types of fluids and messes for total protection. The waterproof surface is so pure, it actually meets food contact standards.

don't let a simple accident ruin your day

Well, quite simply, yes. Organic vegetables are healthier because they do not have chemical pesticide residues. Organic milk is healthier because it comes from cows that are not given artificial chemical hormones. Likewise, organic mattresses do not have all the chemicals that regular mattresses have.

But that’s just the beginning. Organic mattresses are made with organic and non-toxic materials instead of conventional and chemically questionable materials. Consumers are choosing organic mattresses as a way to avoid unnecessary exposure to these chemicals. If you’re shopping for a new mattress, it's worth knowing what you’ll be spending a third of your life on.

easily wipes clean

Keeping your baby's crib clean and hygienic shouldn't be hard work. While mattress pads are always a good idea, there are times when they're soiled, in the wash or just not available. In these cases, you can always put your baby back to sleep with just a sheet.

The waterproof surface wipes clean with a wet cloth or paper towel. We recommend a mild soap or some hydrogen peroxide to help sanitize the surface. With Naturepedic, your crib mattress can always be cleaned.

made from non-GMO sugarcane

Using the latest green technology, Naturepedic has found a way to make its waterproof surface out of sugarcane. Through a unique process, the sugars are naturally fermentated by various yeasts into ethanol, which is then used to create a recyclable LDPE bioplastic that's flexible and fully waterproof. Naturepedic goes out of its way to ensure that the sugarcane is non-GMO.

seamless waterproof edges keep the mattress clean to the core

Naturepedic crib mattresses feature seamless waterproof edges so urine, spit-up and other messes can never seep into the core of the mattress. Most crib mattresses today (especially the latest crop of breathable ones) allow for these messes to seep into the interior of the mattress where they can grow mold and bacteria. Keeping your baby's crib clean and healthy requires a hygienic design making a waterproof surface is a must!
