There are so many reasons to love Naturepedic mattresses, America’s most trusted brand of organic cotton mattresses.  All of their certified organic cotton baby mattresses & bedding, as well as children’s mattresses & bedding, are made in the USA of materials also made or grown in the USA.  Naturepedic mattresses are 100% free of vinyl (PVC, including phthalates), toxic fire retardants and polyurethane foam, materials typically used in conventional mattresses.

Given how susceptible newborns are to the harmful effects of synthetic fire retardants and how much time they spend on a mattress, creating a natural, healthy sleep environment is imperative.  Naturepedic mattresses have been tested for chemical emissions and certified by GreenGuard to meet their strict standards for babies & children.  Their baby crib mattresses have a firm flat surface to provide ideal support in accordance with pediatrician and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) firmness recommendations.
