You may recall my Review of the No-Compromise Organic Crib Mattress by Naturepedic. It is one review that changed my outlook on a particular baby item, literally forever. The benefits of using an Organic Crib Mattress far outweigh and reason you may have for not, the health and safety of a baby depend on it. But the mattress they sleep on is only half of the problem. What else does baby sleep on? Naturepedic offers other products that ensure baby is fully protected while sleeping.
We received the Organic Cotton Waterproof Pad which is completely waterproof and breathable. It features a thin waterproof membrane in the middle with the top and bottom layers being 100% Organic Cotton fabric. This pad ensures that the mattress won’t be ruined by leaks. But, unlike others, this one is soft and does not contain vinyl, PVC, Phthalates nor rubber. Yep, the others do!
The Waterproof Pad features DrySleep™ Technology, “which effectively blocks liquids from passing through while still allowing the fabric to “breathe.” Some water vapor is allowed to escape resulting in less “sweaty backs” and a drier, more comfortable sleep.”
The way I see it, most pads are rough, tough and must be very uncomfortable. Naturepedic offers one that is great on the environment, safe for baby and that is comfortable to sleep on. There is no sacrificing a good nights sleep in the quest for protecting the mattress.
The Organic Airflow Sheet Crib Size w/Quick Release Snaps is a neat little item to have. It’s like a pad and sheet all in one. It has handy snaps all around the perimeter that can be fastened to the rails of the crib. This ensures that it stays in place, yet requires no lifting of the entire mattress to change it. Brilliant!
It features the Airflow™ Technology, which consists of an internal breathable space which increases air circulation. It provides improved temperature control and breathability and reduces “sweaty backs” (Which will be so nice in the peak of summer!) This pad/sheet is an all-purpose item. When you have multiples and more than one bed to change in the night (I hate those nights!), it is a lifesaver!! Less disruption on the baby which means more of a chance in going back to sleep (and you really can’t argue with that!)
To complete the Safe nighttime experience, my girls received the 100% Organic Cotton Ivory Crib Sheet. Amazingly soft to the touch, this sheet is pure luxury against the skin. It is a very luxurious 250 Thread Count Sateen. It features an elastic perimeter that guarantees a secure fit when used with the Naturepedic mattress. It is available in cotton or flannel and also in Ivory and white. One for the crib, or the bassinet – Naturepedic allows a comfortable and safe alternative to regular sheets. Babies are in direct contact with sheets on their beds most often than not, and for my girls with sensitive skin – these sheets are my top choice!
All of these products are completely machine washable and dryer friendly, they require no special care to keep them looking new even after dozens of washes. So, it’s something that can be bought and used with peace of mind that you are doing your best to ensure your baby is safe from chemicals and toxins.
