The HistoryNaturepedic was founded by Barry A Cik, a quarter century veteran in the field of environmental engineering. In anticipation of his first grandchild, Barry went searching for a suitable baby crib mattress. Sadly, he found all of the crib mattress offerings completely unacceptable and was in shock at the state of the industry. "I knew all about vinyl/PVC, polyurethane foam, and the various chemicals contained in them and there was no way I was going to put my grandchild to sleep within a few inches of these chemicals."
Barry then set out to find a suitable organic baby crib mattress. "All of the organic baby crib mattresses on the market contained either latex, wool, or both, and were not waterproof... if the mattress were to get wet, it would grow mold and fungus without any effective way to clean it. The wool/latex issue left a lot to be desired considering their known allergenic properties." According to Barry, "the organic baby mattresses were nothing more than miniaturized adult mattresses, which made little sense for babies."
Barry, together with his two sons, set out to found Naturepedic, an organic and non-toxic baby crib mattress company dedicated to providing parents with a better alternative - the first and only waterproof organic baby crib mattress designed with a safe food grade polyethylene cover, and which eliminates the potentially harmful chemicals with which Barry was so familiar.
Today, Naturepedic has a large and growing network of retail outlets across the country and abroad. Due to the success of the No-Compromise™ Organic Baby Crib Mattress, Naturepedic has launched many new models to meet the growing demand for high quality non-toxic baby and children's mattresses and bedding.
