Seal of Approval Winner
|Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2014
||With three different models of Naturepedic crib mattresses to evaluate one thing stood out across the board, Naturepedic is producing some of the finest mattresses on the market today, one that every new parent should consider when making this important purchase. Most people don’t think of it but babies will spend up to 14 hours a day on their crib mattress. From the start testers were impressed with the fact that right out of the protective plastic bag there was no odor whatsoever. No smells of chemicals, rubber, plastic, etc. Perhaps itâs because all the materials in Naturpedic’s mattresses are 100% organic. These mattresses are also completely waterproof (not just water resistant), but unlike most waterproof mattresses it is silent when you move against it, there is no crinkly sound from a plastic lining. Some parents expressed some reservations based on the price of this mattress, until they learned that this was a two-sided system, one for infants and the other for toddlers. The infant side being much firmer to reduce SIDS and the toddler side softer and with more give. Their opinions about the price quickly turned from being pricey to being a terrific value.
