Naturally Flame Retardant
MADE in USA
Naturepedic Organic Cotton Lightweight Classic Baby Crib & Toddler Mattress creates the same natural, healthy environment for your baby or toddler as the Naturepedic Classic mattresses with 150 or 252 coil innersprings but weighs half as much. This makes changing the sheets much easier. Naturepedic mattresses are 100% free of materials typically used in conventional mattresses such as vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam, which release questionable chemicals over time. These materials and toxic chemicals have been eliminated in the Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Cotton Baby Crib Mattress.
Babies spend up to 70% of their early lives sleeping and playing on crib mattresses & their tiny bodies are especially susceptible to the harmful effect of synthetic fire retardants. This mattress has been tested for chemical emissions and certified by GreenGuard to meet their strict standards for babies & children.

** Available in Traditional Single Firmness or Seamless Dual Firmness Design - Which is Better?
The seamless dual firmness design features heat sealed waterproof edges that prevent moisture or fluids from seeping into the mattress along the edge & provide a more hypoallergenically sealed construction. The Dual Firmness mattress is fitted with a slightly firmer infant side and a slightly softer toddler side. The traditional single firmness has a binding or trim & has a very traditional mattress look. A single firmness crib mattress has the same firmness on both sides, which works for both infants and toddlers.
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.
