The search for an ideal organic cotton crib mattress will lead mothers to a variety of options. In particular, it is important to look at all of the features of the mattress. Ensure it is truly organic, not comprised of “mostly” or “nearly” all organic products. There is a great deal of options available and this allows a mother to have plenty of choices to consider for their child. In particular, you may wish to consider organic cotton and the wool/cotton blends that are on the market. Both are good choices when compared to regular crib mattresses for children.

The Naturepedic, No-Compromise Classic is an example of a quality organic cotton mattress for your child's crib or toddler bed. As the company points out, the average baby will spend up to 70 percent of their early life sleeping on this mattress: it matters that it is organic. This particular model offers a pure, organic cotton filling. There are no chemicals used within the cotton from the start. Of course, another benefit to using cotton is that it is a renewable resource and therefore its use does not, in any way, hurt Planet Earth. A 100% certified organic cotton crib mattress will never be bleached, dyed and will not contain any type of pesticide, chemical fertilizer or herbicide.

The design of the No-Compromise Classic is excellent. It gives a nice, firm support with a 150-coil design. It does contain the orthopedic innerspring which makes it ideal for supporting the child while still providing comfort. In addition, there is a dust mite barrier as a cover, which is excellent in terms of protecting the child. The critters just cannot get in!

Another option to consider is the Pegasus crib mattresses. This manufacturer does an excellent job of creating an affordable yet well-designed crib mattress. This is the type of mattress you are likely to pass from one child to the next, because of its well-built design. It too is all organic. It contains no chemicals or pesticides in its construction. This particular mattress does offer a bit more strength and support than the No-Compromise Classic, because it features 210 elliptical coils. It is a basic innerspring design, as there are others a bit more expensive and offer higher quality.

To keep the child safe, one of the nice features of this mattress is the addition of wool. Like the No-Compromise Classic, it does contain a nice, organic cotton batting, but it also contains the added wool. Wool is a natural fire retardant. Standard mattresses contain chemical protection because they aid in providing your child with a flame resistant quality, protecting the child longer for help to arrive in a fire. There are no synthetic fibers in this mattress either.

When it comes to selecting one of these, the wool addition is the main factor. Wool is a quality addition because of its ability to be fire retardant but it is not always an option for all children. Some children are allergic to the wool (or latex) models and therefore mattresses containing these materials should have careful consideration before the child is placed in the cribs. If you are unsure if they are allergic, ask your pediatrician about this risk before investing in mattresses that use wool.

For the most part, both the No-Compromise Classic and the Pegasus crib mattresses will aid in protecting your child and providing him or her with a comfortable and safe place to sleep. Searching for an organic cotton crib mattress is an easy solution when you have quality manufacturers like these providing the best products possible.
