New Baby Must Haves: Naturepedic Crib Mattress

review disclosure

New Baby Must Haves

This post is part of a new series I am doing this month called New Baby Must Haves. In this series, you will find reviews for products that I feel you really need if you have a new little one on the way!

As a family, we have been taking small steps to living a greener, cleaner life. With two children, we have learned the importance of using safe products in the home, especially where they are concerned.

A durable, safe, and clean crib mattress is definitely a new baby must have, and we are excited to feature the Naturepedic Lightweight Classic Baby & Toddler Mattress.

Naturepedic Organic Baby/Toddler Mattress

Upon removing the mattress from the box, I noted how lightweight it was. It was advertised as having this feature on Naturepedic’s website, but I didn’t realize a mattress could weigh so little! It was easy to pull from the box, place in the bed, and put on the bedding once we were ready. It was packaged in a sealed bag so there was no worry of damage to the mattress…

And the plastic covering meant Big Brother had to help!

Naturepedic Mattress

The Naturepedic Lightweight Classic 2-Stage Mattress is Certified Organic. The company only uses U.S. grown and certified organic cotton, which I like because so many of the items we buy these days are made overseas and then shipped here. I like to support US business when possible. The outer layer is made of a quality non-toxic and stain resistant material, meaning the mattress is very easy to clean and will not hold a smell due to diaper leaks or baby spit up.

Providing a two-stage use, the crib mattress can be flipped once your baby is old enough for the softer toddler side. The infant side is firmer, keeping the baby’s safety in mind, while the toddler side provides more comfort as your baby grows. I like the handy tag at the top of the mattress that shows you which side to use!

Two-Stage Crib Mattress

Once we had the Naturepedic mattress out of the plastic, we decided to check out the fit inside the baby’s crib. It was a perfect fit! It is snug against the corners, preventing our little one from getting lodged between it and the rails. It will also work with a toddler bed, so we may invest in one this time around just to be able to use this mattress longer. I honestly am jealous of my newborn, as his bed is more comfy than mine!

      I know right? I wish my first son had had one – we moved him to a twin bed when he was ready and that required a different mattress. I look forward to using this one with a toddler bed for baby #2!

    I love concise, helpful posts like these. Now I know where to send friends who are pregnant, cause we are sure finished with that!

    • Kecia says

      Exactly! And with a newborn sleeping about 20 hours a day, you definitely want something supportive for them.

    That’s so smart to have the two sides and so clearly labeled! I’ve changed my crib from crib to toddler bed back and forth through 4 kids now!

    • Kecia says

      Now that we have this mattress, it makes me wish we had a crib that would convert to a toddler bed!

  3. Jaime says

    I wish I had this three years ago when we were picking out a mattress for our little one. I love the concept of having the two different sides for infant and toddler.

    • Kecia says

      I’ve been thinking the same for my 3 year old! He just got a standard mattress from Walmart — I didn’t even think to research a better option…

  4. Jessica says

    I have never seen anything like this! I love that there are two sides to choose from. It’s amazing how far manufactures and brands have come. I remember buying my daughter’s first mattress and there was nothing like this available!

  5. Ashley says

    I just love that there are two sides! What a great way to get more use from a mattress, while keeping safety the number one priority. I also appreciate it’s all made in the US.

  6. Ashley M says

    I’ve heard about this mattress, it’s two stage option makes this an awesome investment.

  7. Jennifer says

    It’s been so long since I had a crib in the house! LOL! I can’t remember if we had one with two different sides meant for different ages back then!

  8. Diana @ NannyToMommy says

    Is that a drop down side crib? We have one too that looks JUST like that one, same color and everything. I need to look into this mattress. SweetPea’s old one has an little slit in it, so I probably need a new one. Have you been using your little lounger? I’m thinking of using that until baby #2 is ready to be moved to a crib.

    • Kecia says

      No, it’s a stationary crib. And yes, Dawson LOVES the Little Lounger. We kept Sawyer’s bassinet for our second baby, but he doesn’t care for it. He sleeps good in the lounger, and I like that his head can be slightly elevated. I’m paranoid about him spitting up at night and us not knowing about it!

  9. Stefani says

    I like that this is a two stage crib. When you have children, they outgrow their clothes and such so quickly. I also like that it is made with organic cotton.

  10. kim says

    a win win here. I remember shopping for one and I knew I was going to get a good one. If we as adults have good mattress, so is baby!!

  11. Autumn says

    When Danger was a baby, I dreamed of putting her in a Naturepedic mattress, but we just couldn’t swing the cost. She ended up sleeping with us, which worked out well. IF we decide to add to our family, I would make sure to budget for the Naturepedic mattress. They really are the best for baby!

  12. kalani says

    I think it’s great that you didn’t experience any fumes! I’d love to be able to have one for our baby!
