Babies spend so much time sleeping that an organic mattress was at the top of our list for the nursery. Naturepedic offers a line of organic crib mattresses which are listed as ‘top picks’ by the Baby Bargain Guide:
NaturePedic “No-Compromise” coil mattress organic cotton version OR
NaturePedic Organic Cotton Ultra coil mattress with quilted organic cotton cover
Although we are really pleased with the Naturepedic line and have used it for the crib mattress cover, we opted to go with a ‘runner-up’ from the Baby Bargains Guide and have been extremely happy with our choice. The Sealy Posturepedic Springfree Crib Mattress is a soy and latex based foam mattress which is extremely lightweight. The mattress is made in the USA and is GREENGUARD® certified for indoor air quality and low chemical emissions. It meets or exceeds all state and federal testing including flammability, lead, phthalate and chemical testing and does not contain toxic fire retardants.
Update: As of the spring of 2013, the Sealy Posturepedic Springfree Crib Mattress has unfortunately been discontinued. We have chosen NaturePedic for our toddler’s twin bed mattress and highly recommend this manufacturer for an organic crib mattress as well.
