Our Analysis

These USA-made waterproof mattress protector pads have a proprietary technology called DrySleep™ that blocks liquids from penetrating the mattress, but also allows the two layers of organic cotton flannel to "breathe." With an ultra-thin waterproof barrier in the center of the mattress, this breathable feature lets some water vapor escape in order to diminish baby sweating, providing for a more dry, comfortable sleep.

Free of vinyl, PVC, phthalates and latex while also deterring dust mites and other allergens, the Naturepedic Organic Mattress Protector Pads can be machine washed and dried, and are available in both flat and fitted in several mattress sizes:

  • Bassinet - 15" x 30"
  • Bassinet Oval - 14" x 29"
  • Cradle Flat - 18" x 36"
  • Minicrib/Portacrib Flat - 24" x 38"
  • Crib Flat - 28" x 52"
  • Crib Fitted - 28" x 52"

Moms love how soft these mattress pads are and how well they fit and work. We recommend buying two of these highly functional mattress pads, however, because they take some tim to dry.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
