This cover combines breathability and waterproofing for a safer, healthier and more hygienic design. The cover features a soft organic cotton surface and a 3-dimensional polyester lattice structure that creates a breathable space under the baby for increased airflow. This results in improved temperature regulation for less sweaty backs and a reduced risk of overheating. It also allows the baby to breathe directly through the breathable cover if necessary. Additionally, the cover also features a waterproof backing which protects the mattress from urine, spit-up, and other messes, making crib changes easy. Get all the safety and comfort benefits of a breathable mattress with the convenience and practicality of a removable and washable layer.
Breathable crib mattresses are all about added comfort and safety. Simply put, babies tend to cry more when they're uncomfortable. Airflow under the baby allows heat to dissipate more efficiently, helping regulate temperature for less sweaty backs. According to airflow tests, breathability may also increase safety by allowing air to flow more freely around the baby.
The breathable fabric is 3-dimensional, allowing air to flow through the fabric and under the baby for 360° air circulation. Since air is able to pass freely through the cover’s 3D structure, babies can breathe right through it!
The breathable function is encapsulated in a washable cover that completely hugs the mattress. This removable layer has a waterproof backing that keeps the mattress clean and protected from urine, spit-up, and other messes. In the event of an accident, simply replace with a spare cover or put the baby back to sleep on the fully functional underlying mattress. The cover can then be machine washed and dried at your convenience.
Airflow under the baby means less sweaty backs and a lower risk of overheating. Moisture can more easily evaporate while heat can dissipate more efficiently. All this translates into a baby that's more comfortable, and hence, more likely to sleep through the night!
A breathable crib mattress is not helpful if your baby will be breathing flame retardants, VOC off-gassing, mold, mildew and other microbial growth. Sadly, many other breathable crib mattress designs are more susceptible to these concerns. With Naturepedic, you get ORGANIC plus BREATHABLE! You also get an easy, practical approach to keeping your baby's sleep environment clean and hygienic.
