Brand Profile: Naturepedic Baby Beds

Just when you thought you’d covered all the bases…there’s one more household necessity you have to watch out for. But don’t worry, like cosmetics, clothing, and cleaning products, we’ve got you covered with this potentially phthalate-laden product as well. This one might have slipped your mind as something you should be concerned about – I know it’s something I never really considered: mattresses, and more importantly, mattresses for baby cribs.

Just like clothing, the fabric in mattresses can be toxic. From the fibers to the factory itself, there are plenty of opportunities for chemicals to slip into the product – the standards (or lack thereof) for quality are both archaic and corrupt. And this is something we put our bodies – our faces! – on every night. As if we needed one more thing to worry about before falling asleep…

And worse, the standards for adult mattresses are no different than those for babies, whose raw, delicate, developing immune systems soak up chemicals like a sponge, causing often irreversible damage like respiratory, neurological, and endocrine disrupting diseases.

However, when I say “the standards” I of course am referring to conventional (and sadly still industry leading) brands. But there is a safe alternative – and no it’s not a mat made out of grass and sticks. In fact, this product is a step up from the rest in comfort just as much as safety. For babies and parents alike, the Naturepedic is a high-end and low-risk solution to the issue of toxic mattresses. It comes in various sizes as well as shapes so it can fit any bassinet, changing table, or cradle; it’s available in toddler and tyke sizes, growing with your child. And when they run in to cuddle on those stormy nights and early weekend mornings, they can rest easy on your Naturepedic, too.
