A Naturepedic 2-Stage Mattress not only provides a good night's sleep - it supports your growing baby and keeps them healthy and safe. As one of the top organic mattress companies in the world, they believe that Mother Nature provides the best materials for a healthier and more comfortable sleep. Their organic mattresses are only made of natural, organic, and non-toxic materials which have been designed with the help of pediatricians, chemists, and engineers. They've considered cost, comfort, durability, safety, and health as your baby will spend countless hours on their crib mattress.
A Naturepedic 2-Stage Crib Mattress
is a smart choice that offers long-lasting quality to serve your child well into their toddler years. You simply flip the mattress from the flat, firm infant side to the slightly more cushion firm toddler side. When is the proper time to flip from the infant side to the toddler side?
Step One: Identify each Side
You will find a useful and easy-to-read tag that has been sewn into the seam of the mattress to let you know which side is for infants and which side is for toddlers. The infant side is designed with an extra firm mattress for flat, firm surfaces critical for the safety of the baby. The toddler side is cushion firm for a little more comfort.
Step Two: Determine when to Flip
This phase is truly up to you and your child's needs, but it's best to check with your pediatrician before making any transitions. On average most people flip their mattresses when their baby is about 12 months old. When you're ready, simply flip the mattress over. It's that easy!
Most importantly, your babies safety comes first. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends a firm, flat crib surface with no soft bedding in the crib to reduce the risk of suffocation for infants. To prevent suffocation, never place pillows or thick quilts in a baby's sleep environment until the doctor gives the OK and make sure there are no gaps larger than two fingers between the sides of the crib and the mattress.
For the Big Kids:
A Naturepedic 2-sided Mattress is a great option when you've reached the next stage of your child's life. If your child no longer needs a crib but is not quite potty trained, we suggest the 2-in-1 Organic Cotton Ultra/Quilted Mattress
. This ultra-safe and highly versatile mattress have a waterproof side for when they first come out of the crib. This side is made of organic cotton fabric, that functions as a dust-mite barrier, and protects against leaks and accidents. When your child is all grown up and potty trained, just flip the mattress over to the plush quilted cotton side for a more luxurious and comfortable feel.
For your big kids that need a more natural, healthy and cozy sleep environment we suggest the Naturepedic Twin 2-Sided Quilted Organic Cotton Deluxe Mattress
. This design means that both sides of this mattress can be slept on and is deeper than a one-sided mattress for a more luxurious mature feel.
All mattresses are GOTS and Greenguard GOLD certified and are appropriate for adults or children to sleep on. Made in the USA.
