Why breathability matters
Research shows that a sleep environment rich in oxygen is critical for cognitive and physical development in infants. It also helps them sleep longer and deeper. Nook applies this knowledge in all products by facilitating better airflow in and around the crib and by ensuring smarter temperature regulation at naptime and nighttime.
How Nook does breathability
We employ nature’s highest-performing materials, a carefully controlled fabric weave, and innovative structural designs to foster environments optimized for breathability. In the Pebble Mattress, a breathable natural latex core is covered by a unique airflow layer to promote ventilation while a patented asymmetrical pattern facilitates oxygen flow on the surface. Materials like certified organic cotton, eucalyptus and low-impact dyes facilitate breathability across the entire Nook product line.
Standard infant crib mattresses are often comprised of non-porous plastics and synthetics that impede airflow. Even "organic" mattresses do nothing to ensure air circulation through the mattress interior and require non-breathable mattress pads. The Nook Sleep System is the only infant sleep solution designed to ensure consistent oxygen flow over and through every product.
