Rest Easy With Naturepedic
Considering that babies spend about 70% of their early life sleeping and playing on a mattress, it makes perfect sense not to skimp on a cheap, vinyl mattress. Nearly all crib mattresses today contain polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC), phthalates, chemical fire retardants, and an extensive list of added chemicals which release fumes into your baby's environment. Babies spend an average of 10-14 hours a day sleeping and playing on a mattress. A child inhales air no more than six inches away from these chemicals. The mattress is the single most prominent object in the child’s environment. Naturepedic mattresses are designed to provide a natural and healthier alternative to today's mattress offerings by helping you eliminate many toxic chemicals your child would otherwise be exposed to. Naturepedic is the first and only waterproof organic cotton baby crib mattress designed with a safe food grade polyethylene cover. The heirloom quality workmanship and extra firm innerspring make this mattress the best for your baby, all while avoiding the use of potential allergens such as latex and wool. The mattresses are reasonably priced, and you can use coupon code PPMH during checkout to save $35(equal to the cost of shipping). We tested and reviewed the 2 in 1 Organic Cotton Ultra. The materials used were of the highest quality. The cover was very soft and water beaded on the surface of the mattress without fail. Naturepedic was generous in providing other nursey items, which I will be posting about in the near future. Check out their site http://naturepedic.com/ to see their line of bedding and mattresses for baby and toddler, along with a nice selection of twin through queen size mattresses and bedding.
