Education Dust Mite Protection for your Crib Mattress
Natural materials, including organic cotton, wool and latex,
will not keep dust mites away. (Don't believe the hype
that wool and latex protect against dust mites.) Dust mites are

Any non-waterproof mattress (including the Quilted Organic Baby Crib Mattress)
would require an external dust mite barrier encasing to
prevent dust mites from penetrating the mattress. However, an
will provide protection for the top of the mattress which
mostly solves the problem.
The Classic Organic Baby Crib Mattress,
Ultra Organic Baby Crib Mattress,
Lightweight Organic Baby Crib Mattress, and
2 in 1 Organic Baby Crib Mattress all feature a waterproof surface that cannot be penetrated by dust-mites. There is no need for any additional dust mite barriers
for these models.
