Organic Crib Mattress Pad Tips

Benefits of an organic crib mattress pad?

  • Provides softness and comfort (but still firm)
  • Absorbs liquids
  • Non-toxic and chemical free

You don't want all those liquids from urine leaks to spit-ups to end up inside your quality organic crib mattress. That's why a mattress pad will absorb those liquids no matter how big they get.

Certified organic cotton is a great natural fiber that most pads are made from. Quality organic pads are quilted and easy to clean. Simply adding a splash of white vinegar to the wash will keep the mattress pad looking brand new time and time again. This will also increase the softness and absorbance, and you won't need any harsh chemical softeners.

Your crib mattress pad should be used over a moisture or puddle pad. Otherwise the liquids will just sit there like a puddle and your baby will be wet. The moisture pad prevents the leaks from seeping into the mattress, while the mattress pad absorbs those leaks until it can be washed. I bought two organic mattress pads for Samantha's crib for those times when one is in the wash.

One of them is the Naturepedic Organic Cotton Crib Mattress Pad. Both the top and bottom layers are made of 100% organic cotton fabric. This organic cotton fabric effectively blocks dust mites and allergens.

Naturepedic Organic Cotton Crib Mattress Pad is safe and simple.


  • composed of 100% certified organic cotton layers
  • waterproof and comfortable
  • repels allergens such as dust-mites
  • environmentally friendly
  • breathable and durable
  • free of phthaltes, vinyl/PVC, and other chemical toxins

This crib mattress pad does the job it is designed to do. It protects the mattress from the unavoidable leaks and also protects your baby from harmful chemicals and toxins. This mattress protector is breathable enough to keep your baby dry. This is a good thing, because you don't want your baby's back to be constantly wet from sweat that many non-breathable pads create.
