Organic Baby Bedding: What are the best waterproof crib mattress pads?

When shopping for organic baby bedding don’t forget an organic waterproof crib mattress pad. You’ll need this breathable, protective layer to keep your baby’s bed dry and comfy. Why organic? Because it’s a natural, healthy alternative to conventional mattress protectors made from vinyl or other non-wicking materials treated with harmful chemicals.

Which organic waterproof crib mattress pad is best for your baby?

Our organic baby bedding collection includes several types of organic waterproof mattress pads; each one is made from certified organic natural fibers and inert waterproof protection.  All of these pads do a great job at moisture control.  Choose the best one for your baby based on your material preference, how it feels and your budget.

Why do you need a crib mattress pad? 

We highly recommend an organic waterproof pad to protect your non-waterproof crib mattress.  Some of our customers double-up on pads for extra protection, i.e. a fitted Naturepedic Organic Cotton Waterproof Pad with an Organic Wool Moisture Pad. 

Even if you have a crib mattress with a waterproof finish it is a good idea to use a crib mattress pad.  The mattress pad provides absorbency and helps manage moisture (i.e. leaking diaper, spit up, drooling, etc.). It helps prevent irritation to baby’s skin from exposure to a pool of moisture.
