The Next Step in Safe Sleep: Naturepedic Organic Cotton Twin Mattress

babyphoto

Hey, I know you.

You’re that mom who saw those 2 little pink lines and wanted to change the whole world. It started small, with a healthy diet and more exercise. Maybe you stopped wearing perfume and using harsh cleaning products. Then you started changing everything from your beauty products to the containers you store your food in. By the time your baby arrived, you wanted nothing more than to wrap them in the cleanest little bubble you could find and keep them there forever.

I recognize you because your story is so much like mine. As moms, we only want the best for our babies, and that desire to make their little worlds perfect can really take over. In my case, I eventually realized that the pursuit of perfection and that unattainable “purity” just isn’t possible. So, we prioritize.

When we were planning for our first child, I made exceptions on some things, but the one baby purchase I absolutely wouldn’t budge on was our crib mattress. It was the one place my baby would be spending the most time, and the one product they’d be putting their face on for hours. I did my research on natural, organic options, and there was no choice for us but Naturepedic.

But then a funny thing happened. Our son grew up at lightning speed (just like everyone said he would.) Before we knew it, he was out of that crib, and out of his toddler bed, and his new little sister was sleeping on his Naturepedic mattress…and we were faced with another decision to make.

What does he sleep on now? We took great care to create a safe sleep environment for him as a baby, so didn’t he deserve that same care now, especially since a bigger bed would probably be used for so much longer?

There are so, so many mattresses on the market now making “green” claims, and I ended up with a headache every time I tried to research. I found countless dead ends and false claims until I decided to just stick with what we know and trust. There was only one answer: Naturepedic.

So, I’m beyond excited to partner with Naturepedic to bring you a review and recommendation of their organic cotton quilted deluxe twin 1 sided mattress, which is the one on which my precious boy now sleeps soundly.

Why we’re continuing to trust Naturepedic:

First, the obvious safety factors. This mattress is crafted from quilted organic cotton fabric with an organic cotton filling. There is no wool or latex, which are high allergy materials. The individual materials as well as the mattress itself are certified by OTCO to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and GREENGUARD® “select” certification standards. Naturepedic also passes all Federal and State flammability standards without the use of any fire retardant chemicals or FR barriers. (Get more details here.)

What all that means is that your child is sleeping on organic cotton. Period. Love that.

The money you spend on a Naturepedic mattress is money you won’t have to spend twice. This mattress comes with a 20-year limited warranty, and the company boasts a very low warranty claim rate. (I can vouch for the durability, as our crib mattress still looks brand spankin’ new!) Please note: The one-sided mattress is not waterproof. If you’d like it to be, consider using a Naturepedic waterproof mattress pad. 

You’re supporting USA-made products. Naturepedic is a family owned business located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Their workers are skilled Amish craftsman that take pride in their work, paying special attention to every detail to ensure long lasting durability. Plus, the cotton filling is all 100% certified organic and grown in the USA. So your purchase supports both farmers AND manufacturers in this country, and the standards for certification are enforced by this country, too.

But what about the price? The mattress we’re using retails for approximately $649. We added a simple bedframe and box spring to ours, which cost us $149. That puts the total value of our son’s bed at $798. Higher than some on the market? Yes, maybe. But what are you paying for? And what are you really getting if you pay less?

If you figure that this mattress will get at the very least, 10 years of use, it breaks down to less than $80 a year to ensure the quality of the place where your child will be resting their head for at least 8 hours a night, every night. That’s over 29,000 hours over 10 years! In my opinion, there is nothing worth more than that kind of peace of mind. And honestly, when we priced other mattresses, they were more expensive than I thought so the difference in price was relatively small.

But is it comfortable? That matters a lot, right?

Since we’re still transitioning our boy into his new bed from ours, there are many nights that I fall asleep beside him (which works out great for review purposes!)  I love the firmness of this mattress, and I sleep great on it. The specs say that it has 360 steel coils in alternating directions for support, but I can’t tell you why that equals comfort. What I can tell you from my experience is that it’s very supportive and firm, and I prefer it to my own. I especially like the borders of the mattress, as they’re sturdy, durable and strong – like my son won’t roll off easily if he gets near the edge. (In other words, this mattress has strong shoulders.)

And there’s no sound, no squeak, no spring noises. It’s perfectly quiet!

We have not compromised one bit on comfort for the sake of organic quality. In fact, it’s our hope to upgrade our bed to a Naturepedic in the future, too! But for now, the little ones are most important. Every night that my littles have gone to sleep on a Naturepedic mattress is a night that I’ve slept a little more soundly, too.

The Naturepedic Organic Cotton Quilted Deluxe One-sided Twin Mattress is available on Amazon.com.

  29. We’re about to invest in a “big boy bed” for my oldest son and we should really look into Naturepedic. It would probably be a great idea to replace my daughter’s mattress with something like this too since she has eczema and seems to be sensitive to her surroundings.

  32. I love, love Naturepedic! Both of my children have a Naturepedic mattress. Such great quality!

  33. Wow, that seems like a lot of money for a mattress! However, we will likely be using mattresses for quite a while and if it could make it through a few kids then it would probably be worth it.

  34. We are really close to needing a new mattress. I love that it is organic!
    Emily recently posted..Affinity Pro Double Electric Breast Pump from LansinohMy Profile

  35. Naturepedic makes great products! I would love to get one of these once my baby gets a big kid bed.

  36. I really need to look into this company further. my husband and i need a mattress (we’re still sleeping on the floor on a futon mat… its killing my pregnant back!… and this is my second!) and i love that their products are organic and safe!!

  37. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I agree that price doesn’t really matter when it comes to quality and how safe the mattress is.

  38. This mattress looks amazing. I am really wanting to get an organic mattress for both of my kids.

  39. I love that these are fire retardant and non-allergenic. Great review!

  40. I absolutely love the look of their mattresses. They look so comfy. We are looking at replacing ours and I hope to replace it with a Naturepedic!

  41. We are in the market for a “big girl bed” for our daughter and Naturepedic is at the top of my list. I love that it is organic, made in the USA AND comes with an awesome warranty!

  42. Yolanda Flores says:

    Seems soft, cuddly and perfect for a newborn; can’t wait to own one!

  43. I so want one of these for our daughter’s big girl bed. We spent so much time picking out safe things for her when she was a baby, why should it stop now? Although the price is higher than some other mattress on the market, it’s not nearly as high as I was expecting and, IMO, worth the investment.

  44. This looks like a great mattress! My son definitely needs this!
