Pro Ideal for those who own non-standard size cribs
Send Naturepedic your crib's measurements on a template, and they will send you a custom-sized mattress that fits your crib perfectly. A perfectly matched crib and mattress help eliminate the dangers of babies falling and getting entrapped in the extra space.
Pro Your baby won't be exposed to chemicals since the mattress is organic and non-toxic
Organic mattresses are made with organic and non-toxic materials instead of conventional and chemical materials. They use natural and organic cotton which helps provide a healthy and natural alternative to today's crib mattresses. Unlike brands which 'greenwash' or claim that their products are environmentally-friendly but really are not, Naturepedic is 100% organic. It does not have the chemicals that regular crib mattresses have.
Pro Easy to lift and frequently change sheets
While the weight is not the same for every Naturepedic mattress (because of its custom sizes), it is definitely lighter than all the other competitors, as it is only 2 inches thick.
Pro Can be used for years and handed-down to a younger baby
While in most cases, parents are discouraged to buy used mattresses for hygiene reasons, when it comes to the Naturepedic, it will last you for many years, since it is dust mite proof. If not in use, it is best to protect the mattress with a clean, tight wrap and store it in a dry place.
Con Susceptible to wear due to its thinness
Your child's crib mattress will be subject to weight and force as soon as your baby learns to walk, stand and jump around. Since these custom mattresses only have a fixed width of 2 inches, they are more prone to deteriorate easily compared to thicker mattresses.
Con Standard size crib sheets are loose and may cause sudden infant death
Since these custom mattresses only have a fixed thickness of 2 inches, all the standard size crib sheets do not fit and will surely scrunch up and crumple up. Your baby's movements will pull the sheets loose from underneath the mattress. To prevent this, you can either purchase custom fitted sheets or have your current sheets repaired to fit the new measurement.
