The DrySleep technology used in waterproofing this mattress pad effectively blocks liquids from passing through the fabric while still allowing the material to “breathe.” This is achieved by allowing a certain amount of water vapor (similar to humidity naturally found in the air) to pass through. This results in less “sweaty backs” and a drier, more comfortable sleep. Vinyl/PVC, latex, and rubber, on the other hand, are comparatively “sweaty” - they block all moisture from passing through, creating a more uncomfortable sleeping environment. Drysleep uses a specially formulated polyurethane waterproof barrier that is proven to not leach harmful chemicals. It is made from the same grade material as is required for food contact applications. It also meets the highest standards for medical device biocompatibility (USP Class VI). It does not contain any fire retardants or antimicrobial treatments and is free of vinyl/PVC, phthalates and latex. It also easily passes the GREENGUARD “Gold" certification standards for chemical emissions. With this organic mattress pad, you never have to worry about harmful chemicals or allergenic materials.

Babies spend up to 16 hours a day in their cribs, so your baby's crib should be a cozy, comforting place to rest. By using bedding made of soft organic cotton and non-toxic dyes, you can rest assured that you are keeping harsh chemicals from constant contact with baby's sensitive skin.
