All Naturepedic natural and organic mattresses have been designed with the help of pediatricians, orthopedic specialists, chemists, and engineers. Research and design is coordinated by G.E.M. Testing & Engineering Labs in Cleveland, Ohio."
Many crib mattresses use vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam that release chemicals. Can you believe that is legal? There is actually an interesting article on the Naturepedic website that talks about Phthlates that I would recommend anyone who sleeps on a bed to read. Can you imagine your brand new little baby inhaling chemicals while they sleep? Naturepedic uses Polyethylene, a food grade environmentally friendly plastic. The mattress also uses organic cotton, has heavy duty orthopedic innerspring, is hypoallergenic, and offers non-toxic fire protection. Now that is peace of mind!
The mattress is so soft to the touch and I love how one side feels slightly firmer for a baby while the other is softer for a toddler.
Naturepedic also has several other products including other size mattresses and mattress covers. To view all of their products as well as informative links and faq's visit Naturepedic.com
