Rated 5 out of 5 Nice mattress pad This mattress pad is soft and I think it keeps the crib a little warmer in the winter. We haven't had any problems with leaks or stains. I was happy to find a nice cover in organic cotton. December 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LMarie Excellent choice to supplement your bedding I wasn't sure at first if I needed a mattress pad, given the texture and material of the giggle organic mattress, but I am very happy I have added this to my baby's bed. Not only can I rest assured that the material is good for him as well as the planet, it adds just the right about of softness to the crib, without worrying that it's too soft or squishy. All of the sheets I have purchased fit snuggly over it and when I'm done making up the crib, it seems so cozy I want to climb right in. I don't have to worry about drool and accidents leaking through to our mattress! March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaBean wish I'd gotten 2 of the same! I registered for 2 different organic mattress covers and this is far superior. The quilting is nice and it has a nice thickness to it. March 19, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by pandaNYC does the job and good value Mine survived the wash and fits great, and it's a good value for the price. March 10, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Alice Easy to wash and dry I haven't had any problems yet. So far it is easy to wash and dry and that is very important! March 10, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Robin Did not survive one wash I purchased two of these pads to cover a Naturepedic organic mattress. I washed one with the Better Basics detergent in cold water and dried it on the lowest dryer setting. When I put it on the mattress, I noticed that one of the quilted pockets had ripped open at its seam with the elastic side panel. Set it aside to return, washed/dried the second, only to have the same problem. One other issue. When the pad was on the mattress, the corners stuck out. I will say that after being washed and dried, the mattress pad was soft and plush. But I'm planning to return both and look elsewhere. January 22, 2011

See what people are asking, and maybe add some answers of your own.
Q:Bedding containing polyurethane often has been treated with flame retardants - does this mattress pad contain any flame retardants?
Q:What country is the organic mattess pad made?
A:giggle's manufacuring partner for our very own Better Basic Sateen Waterproof Crib Mattress Pad is Fiberlinks Textiles who make all of their bedding in China. Customized to our own highest standards, this luxurious quilted pad features a laboratory tested barrier for protection from dust mites and allergens of less than 1.0 micron, and a breathable yet waterproof polyurethane membrane to help parents create a healthy, safe sleep environment.
Q:I've been reading that Polyurethane is the filling material used in most baby mattresses. This material is made from petroleum and typically contains chemical catalysts, surfactants, emulsifiers, and pigments. Depending on how it's processed, some polyurethane foam may possibly contain various chemical additives, including formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, and other well established toxic chemicals.
How's the polyurethane in this cover safe for babies. I'm looking for the best organic waterproof cover since i've bought my omni mattress, any suggestions that are toxic-free? Thank you
A:Two of giggle’s top considerations when choosing products for our edited assortment are a child’s safety and health – one of our larger goals is to eliminate exposures to any potentially harmful chemicals and substances contained in any product so we can help parents build healthier environments for their children. This commitment extends from products used in the home to foster healthier indoor environments, to gear and equipment used that a child is in close-contact with for extended periods during a family’s out-and-about travels.
The best waterproof pad for an OMI organic mattress is giggle's Organic Cotton Flannel Mattress Pad. This mattress pad is a "best" pick for use with your OMI organic mattress since it's not quilted, and won't add extra bulk over the mattress's quilted finish. Featuring a proprietary “DrySleep” food-grade polyethylene membrane that allows the fabric to “breathe” yet also be waterproof, this pad is non-toxic and meets the strictest GREENGUARD® certification standards for eliminating toxic chemical emissions. It's free of vinyl/PVC, phthalates, latex rubber, fire retardant chemical treatments, antimicrobial/bacterial treatments, and all chemicals listed on California’s Proposition 65.
Products from my answer
Q:How many crib mattress pads should one buy? Is one sufficient?
Q:The care instructions on this say to wash in cold. If a child pees/pukes/poops in bed, I will want to wash it in hot. Will it shrink if washed in hot?
Also, in general, I have had problems with mattress pads shrinking, even when washed in cold, what guarantee do you give that the pad will fit after washing?
A:We recommend following the care instructions on the packaging for the Organic Waterproof Crib Mattress Pad, which has been sized to allow for shrinkage. The quilting used to create the padding requires it to be washed in cold water rather than hot for optimal long-term comfort. Our products were designed for everyday, new child use – and we stand behind each product we carry should you experience any quality issues!
Q:Does this pad contain vinyl, phthalates, or latex? If not, what does it contain to make it waterproof?
Q:The flannel mattress pad specifies it is free from PVCs, Phthalates, latex, and vinyl. Is this also true of this mattress pad?
