A couple of months ago I was contacted by Natura to review some of their natural washable wool bedding. I visited their website and was excited to try the comforter and mattress pad.
Natura provides products that you can feel good about, organic and hypoallergenic so that you know your little one is wrapped up in nature's goodness. I love that I can help him fight off his fears the boogy man and his bedding can help him fight off invisible "monsters."
I got the package in the mail and the nursery transition began. Our office turned big boy room had fresh coats of paint, carpets cleaned and was all ready for his new (to him-it was daddy's bunk bed when he was little, his dad built it) bed to be dressed. (I did not iron the comforter, it is straight from the box. Don't judge.) I love that everything was fresh, new, and germ free!
I have to be honest I was a bit skeptical about wool, to me many times wool is associated with scratchy and hot. But, the washable wool is wrapped in cotton sateen that is sooo soft. I hardly want to leave when I lay on it to read him bedtime stories. The comforter is designed to regulate temperature which is great for these transition seasons when it is cold one night and hot the next. Our little guy tends to get hot and sweaty when he sleeps so this is ideal. See all the cool features on the box.
And the mattress pad is under there, you just can't see it. I love that it is waterproof without being noisy or crunchy. Little guy is newly potty trained, so a good mattress pad is a must! I love that it provides a little cushion on his rather firm mattress and according to the box has "Natural Silver Technology that kills microbes, fungi, viruses and dust mites." After the Kirby salesman showed me a picture of dust mites that means a lot to me!!
So now that his bed is properly "armed" I can send him to bed feeling good and armed with a battle axe for any other monsters that may decide to creep out of the closet. Is mine the only kid who forgoes the teddy bears for swords, hammers and saws? Sleep tight little one!
Now, I just wish I had their baby collection for the one on the way!
In all fairness, there was a little sticker shock when I first saw the prices. They are high for my taste, but you pay for quality right. I mean look at all these certifications!
P.S. On the Natura homepage it says that if you Fan them on Facebook you get 10% off!!
