Naturally Flame Retardant
Waterproof & Non Waterproof Option
MADE in USA
Naturepedic Organic Cotton Flat Crib Mattress Protector Pads are a soft, natural, breathable and comfortable waterproof alternative to vinyl or rubber. Available in your choice of waterproof & non waterproof. The waterproof pads feature DrySleep technology, which effectively blocks liquids from passing through while still allowing the pad to “breathe.” Some water vapor is allowed to escape resulting in more comfortable sleep.
Both waterproof & non waterproof pads will provide added breathability and absorption in case of an accident. If a waterproof mattress is used, you can use either waterproof or non. For non waterproof mattresses, the waterproof pad is preferred because in addition to providing a moisture barrier, it also blocks dust mites & other allergens.

Naturepedic's All Natural Fire Protection
Cotton does not burst into flames or release deadly fumes when ignited, unlike polyurethane foam. The Naturepedic exclusive fire protection system features a non toxic, naturally derived fire barrier system that is safe and effective. It meets and exceeds all Federal and State flammability standards without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
The primary filling material used in nearly all crib mattresses today is polyurethane foam, a highly flammable substance because it is essentially a petroleum product. In fact, the National Association of State Fire Marshals refers to it as “solid gasoline.”
In order to prevent this hazard and pass Federal and State flammability standards, polyurethane foam has typically been treated or wrapped with harsh industrial fire retardant chemicals, which pose other health and toxicity issues. Some of these chemicals have already been associated with thyroid and liver damage, hyperactivity, and changes in motor behavior and other brain functions. These chemicals typically constituted 10-30% of the foam by weight and can easily become airborne. Natural organic cotton is a far superior filling material and is significantly less flammable than polyurethane foam.
Our exclusive fire protection system is based on the unique fire retardant properties of baking soda and hydrated silica bonded to cellulose fiber. Baking soda is a non toxic substance with excellent fire retardant properties. Baking soda is a non toxic substance with excellent fire retardant properties and can be found as a naturally occurring compound. Silica is a natural mineral that comprises about 60% of the earth’s crust. Clay, rocks, sand, etc. are all made primarily of silica. It is a major constituent of human tissue, bones, teeth, and is even available at health food stores as a food supplement. It is also a primary ingredient in natural toothpaste. The cellulose fiber used is derived primarily from eucalyptus and poplar trees and has a low carbon footprint. These materials provide the best way to meet fire regulations without the use of dangerous chemicals.
