We don't use a waterproof plastic or polyurethane layer. Instead, we created a quilted, 100% GOTS organic certified cotton protector pad. Sewn in our GOTS certified Los Angeles factory, these pads are moisture-resistant and stay snugly in place with four elastic corner straps. They are not waterproof. How many do we recommend? The time-honored mother’s axiom says it best: “Three. One for the bed, one for the wash, and one for the shelf.”
Organic cotton is more durable, luxurious, and breathable. Synthetic fibers and cotton grown with pesticides can be stuffy, not to mention hazardous to your health and environmentally damaging. That’s why we use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton. The material is responsibly and sustainably harvested in India exclusively for us without pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. This is better for you, the environment, and our farmers.
Rest easy. The absorptive natural fibers in our Crib Mattress Pad Protector are moisture resistant. The pad will protect your mattress from life’s little accidents. Our organic cotton effectively wicks moisture while remaining breathable and cool to sleep on. That means a better night’s sleep for you and your little one.
Simply spot clean or machine wash using an eco-conscious laundry detergent. Do not use bleach. Tumble dry on low or air out on the line until completely dry. Don’t worry, the internal fibers won't shift or get lumpy after laundering.
Our Green Crib Mattress is made in our GOTS certified facility in Los Angeles factory. The certificatio validates that we provide our factory team with fair wages, comprehensive benefits, and safe working conditions. GOTS also prohibits the use of the kinds of toxic chemicals commonly used in textile processing that can cause cancer, birth defects, and other serious illnesses. Of course, by using certified organic materials, we also protect the environment, our factory team, and you.
Avocado Crib Protector
100% GOTS Organic Certified Cotton
We use 100% GOTS organic certified cotton in a soft, natural color. No polyester or synthetic fibers. Our cotton is ethically sourced from India. Our organic cotton has received STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Class 1 certification (15.HIN.75800, Hohenstein HTTI), to ensure no harmful substances are present as a result of processing, to include banned substances, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and dyes. Even the green thread used in the stitching and logo embroidery is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified (94.0.6007, Hohenstein HTTI).
Use only a fitted bottom sheet that is specifically made for crib use, along with a mattress pad and/or a waterproof pad. Do not place stuffed animals, pillows, quilts, or comforters in the crib while your baby is sleeping, as they may prevent proper air circulation around your baby’s face.
Side of crib removed for display/photographic purposes only. Cribs should be fully enclosed to ensure safe and secure sleep for your little one.
