Majority of all Amazon users who were helpful enough to write a review of this particular Naturepedic crib mattress give it five stars. The most attractive feature of this mattress, apparently, is it being 100% organic and free from inhalable chemicals that can harm a baby. Users also appreciate the coil spring system, which they say is safer, firmer, and more comfortable than foam mattresses. Although many reviewers find the price for this item more expensive than that for most other mattresses in the market, they still chose to purchase this one and some are planning to make a subsequent purchase.
Some minor flaws observed were the crinkly plastic that made quite a noise whenever the baby moved (but others pointed out that it can be remedied by using a mattress topper) and the middle of the mattress being puffier than the outer edges.
A few Amazon reviewers pointed out that the food-grade polyethylene surface is not really 100% safe because, according to one, polyethylene is made from petroleum.
Overall, though, most of those who bought this item were very pleased with their purchase and the excellent customer service provided by Naturepedic. Some of those who were dissatisfied with their first purchase were able to get a better replacement from the company.
