Why Choose an Organic Cotton Cot Bed Mattress Protector?

But why, you might ask, is this organic cotton option so 'green'? What makes organic cotton such a sustainable choice?

Cotton is a natural material, and, unlike synthetic textiles, is not derived from fossil fuels and will biodegrade at the end of its useful life.

Unfortunately much of the cotton produced around the world uses high levels of pesticides and herbicides, which pollute water supplies and the wider environment. Cotton accounts for 16% of global insecticide releases – more than any other single crop.

Choosing organically grown cotton is a far greener and more ethical choice. It is better for human health as well as for the planet.

Organic production can also help to protect the soil, which has a knock on effect in protecting global food security. By choosing organic products, you are helping to insure that there is a future for your children and everyone else's.

Choosing cotton also means reducing your reliance on plastic, and organic cotton products will not contribute to the problem of plastic waste either when washed during use, or at the end of their useful life.

Why This Cot Bed Mattress Protector is Good For Your Baby

One of the reasons for the widespread use of cotton in bedding is that it can be made into a fabric that is very soft and comfortable against the skin.  

Unlike synthetic fabrics like polyester, cotton is a breathable material, which will allow for good air flow,and won't crinkle nosily at night.

Soft cotton layers in this mattress protector will absorb liquids well. These and other properties of the material mean that it will keep your little one comfortable and make sure baby gets a comfortable night's sleep.

This cotton layer serves as a barrier against dust mites and allergens that might disturb baby during the night. And since it has no harmful chemicals and has an Oeko-Tex Class I (Baby) waterproof membrane, it has been tested rigorously for any chemicals that might pose a threat. This means that you can rest assured that your baby's health will be safeguarded as they sleep.

Good For Parents

Of course, if baby sleeps well then you will too, so what is good for baby in this regard will also be good for parents. Above and beyond this, however, this product will make life easier for parents.

This waterproof mattress protector will keep the cot mattress clean and dry, making sure that it remains comfortable and in good condition for longer.

The protector itself is also durable and long-lasting. The longer you can keep products like this, the less you will have to spend on new items for your baby. This will save parents money – which can always come in handy when you have a little one around.

What is more, the mattress protector is flat, not fitted. This not only means that it will protect the whole mattress beneath but also means that it can be used for other things too – as a changing mat, or for potty training, for example. Again, this could save youmoney by reducing the number of things you have to buy.

Finally, the cot bed mattress protector is fully machine washable and tumble drier safe, which makes things easier for busy parents.

Good for the planet, good for baby, good for parents,. This mattress protector is a win, win, win. The Little Green Sheep range of mattresses and mattress protectors uses no harmful chemicals and all natural materials, so you can rest as easy as your little one, safe in the knowledge that your baby's cot bed is safe for them, safe for you, and safe for the environment.
