Full Naturepedic Verse Mattress Review

The correct bed can make all the difference not only for adult sleepers, but also for children.

Like adults, kids want to have a comfortable and cushy mattress to rest and also requiring a bed to offer them the ideal posture support for their growing bodies.

And that is why, the Naturepedic Verse mattress is ideal for kids.

Naturepedic is a brand that is based in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and this family-owned mattress company was founded by Barry A. Cik, who had several years of experience in the environmental engineering field.

The brand is committed to offering organic beds for people and their families.

Mattresses are usually crafted with noxious chemicals that can be dangerous to your kid’s health, or aren’t made to last until they grow into young adults.

However, the Naturepedic Verse mattress is made keeping in mind that a child’s sleep is precious and imperative for proper growth and development.

The materials used in the bed provide as much comfort and support as you will find in a conventional latex, innerspring, or memory foam mattress.

What Type of Mattress is the Naturepedic Verse?

The Naturepedic Verse is the newest and one of the most innovative organic mattresses on the market today.

The company takes pride in using only the best quality organic materials to craft their mattresses, especially their kid’s mattresses.

  • Top Quilt: It is made of organic cotton which gives the top of this bed a luxury soft feel. The cotton is locally sourced within the US, and the Organic, Non-GMO plant-based batting, along with a PLA (an organic plant-based material), helps in drawing moisture away so that your child sleeps cool all throughout the night.
  • Encased Coils: The base of the mattress is made of individually encased coils that offer bouncy support for appropriate posture alignment. Each coil is properly encased in GOTS-approved polyester fabric, thereby banishing the requirement for adhesives and glues that can irritate your child. In addition to this, these coils are quite breathable for a cool night’s sleep.

How is Motion Transfer and Sinkage with the Naturepedic Verse Mattress?

Naturepedic fares well in this category as it uses only the best quality innersprings available.

Steel springs offer heavy duty support without any health or allergy concerns.

In particular, the company’s continuous coil innerspring offer stable motion-transfer mitigating support that is both comfortable and supportive.

In addition tot this, the coils in the luxury models are individually wrapped in certified organic cotton fabric and also hand assembled for unmatched quality.

This method in turn ensures isolation of movement as well as pressure point relieving comfort that contours to your body. .

Furthermore, the 6 gauge border wire adds heavy duty edge support for long lasting durability.

Does it Sleep Hot?

No, the mattress does not sleep hot!

The Encased coils offer more breathability, which implies your kid will sleep cool and comfortably instead of hot and sweaty.

Additionally, a top quilt of U.S.-grown organic cotton, along with organic wool batting and plant based batting draws moisture away and offers a comfortable and luxurious feel underneath organic cotton surface fabric.

This wool used in the mattress draws away moisture, offers natural fire protection, and also provides temperature regulation, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Does it Have any Smell?

The bed is all natural and safe for both kids and adults to sleep on.

It is made without polyurethane foam, including soybean foam, memory foam, and eco-foam blends.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) logoThey are free from flame retardant chemicals or chemical flame barriers of any kind.

Furthermore, it is made without vinyl/PVC, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), phthalates, formaldehyde, glues/adhesives, and GMOs.

In addition to this, the individual materials as well as the final product are certified to non-toxic standards.

The mattress is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and OTCO certified, and all materials are tested for chemical emissions through the rigorous Greenguard Gold Certification standards.

Thus, you can sleep easy knowing you or your kid won’t be coming into contact with any toxic materials or noxious chemicals.

Furthermore, GOTS certified organic wool facilitates healthy, well treated sheep and the elimination of noxious chemicals in the processing of the wool.

Does it Require a Foundation?

No, it does not require a specific foundation!

However, it is recommended to put the Naturepedic Verse mattress on platform beds, slated frames, or box springs.

It can also work well with your existing foundation so there is no need to purchase a separate foundation.

What type of Cover does the Naturepedic Verse Mattress have?

It has a quilted cotton top made of organic cotton locally sourced within the US, which gives the top of this mattress a luxury soft feel.

The organic cotton filling provides cushion over premium encased coils, which means less bed wiggling during restless nights, thereby helping your child settle comfortably and more easily.

This quilted design further promotes airflow to mitigate overheating and is the perfect mix of softness and firmness —so it feels just like a grown up mattress.

What is the Best Way to Care for the Verse Mattress?

The mattress comes with a practical design which includes a waterproof cover that is quite easy to clean.

This waterproofing is crafted from polyethylene derived from non-GMO sugarcane.

Polyethylene is quite easy to clean and highly stain resistant while offering an excellent barrier to dust mites as well as other allergens.


Naturepedic takes pride in using only the highest-quality organic materials to construct their mattresses, especially their children’s mattresses.

Furthermore, the mattress is crafted in the U.S. by Amish craftsmen who take the utmost pride in their work, thus ensuring long lasting durability.

The bed is heirloom quality and also made to be durable, so that it can withstand anything your kid throws at it or onto it.

Thus, superior workmanship makes for a superior mattress, and the Naturepedic Verse bed has you covered.

In addition to this, the bed comes with a 10 year warranty to back your purchase, especially when it comes to your children.

This decade long warranty thereby ensures that your kid will get the most out of their mattress before they promptly outgrow it.

Size and Shipping for the Naturepedic Verse Mattress

The bed comes shipped in a convenient box that can easily fit through hallways and doors so you can have the bed in the room in no time.

The naturepedic shipping boxThe shipping method allows the company to ship the mattress through ground delivery, which implies mitigated shipping costs, a smaller carbon footprint, and absolutely no appointment hassles for you.

All that you need to do is simply follow the enclosed instructions to assemble your kid’s new organic bed and go from box to bedtime in just minutes.

Despite being shipped in a box, the bed is easy to assemble.

Once you take its plastic wrapping off, the bed unfolds to its full size and is ready to be slept on.

There is absolutely no waiting hours for the bed to expand, so you can throw on a few sheets, some pillows, a comforter, and just doze off.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

Undoubtedly it is quite imperative to have an actual in-home trial period when it comes to purchasing a mattress.

This is because sitting or lying down on a mattress for a few minutes won’t really tell you what kind of sleep you will get, or how you will wake up feeling after sleeping on it.

Unfortunately, this organic mattress does not come with a trial period to test it out.

So the Naturepedic Verse bed doesn’t have a trial period, however, it does have a 30-day money back guarantee if you buy it directly from the company.

In case you buy the mattress from another retailer, then only that retailer’s return policy applies.

Also, if you are unhappy with the mattress and decide to return it to Naturepedic, then you will have to pay any shipping costs including all outbound costs associated with any promotions.

All in all, 30 days isn’t a good amount of time to actually get a feel for a bed, so you and your child will have to make a quick decision on whether you are going to keep it.

Naturepedic Verse Mattress Warranty

When you buy the Naturepedic bed through their website or another authorized online retailer, your bed comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

Though this may not seem like a long time, you have to remember that children will outgrow their beds, so a decade is more than enough time.

The warranty is not transferable and only covers you if you are the original purchaser as well as the owner of the mattress and purchased it directly from the company or from an authorized dealer.

This warranty covers any manufacturers’ flaws that aren’t caused by human error.

It is limited to material defects due to defective materials or workmanship in the Naturepedic mattress, crib mattress, pad, or accessory you have purchased.

However, keep in mind that juvenile pads (e.g. bassinet, cradle, etc.) are not considered mattresses for purposes of this warranty.

You must also let your kid know to treat their bed with care.

In the event of any warranty claim, the company will, at their option, repair or replace the mattress, subject to the limitations and exclusions herein.

Naturepedic also reserves the right to substitute material of equal or higher quality.

Also keep in mind that repair or replacement does not extend the original period of limited warranty, nor does it constitute the beginning of a new limited warranty period.

Furthermore, the warranty excludes: (a) minor imperfections and slight cosmetic flaws; (b) normal wear and tear; (c) tears, stains, soiling, burns, and discoloration
that occur over time; (d) dampness or mold; (e) firmness preference or a change in comfort; (f) a naturally occurring cotton aroma; and (g) Products
that are sold “as is” or “floor models.”

How Much Does the Verse Mattress Cost?

Just because this is a kid’s bed doesn’t imply that it comes at a small price.

Thus, in order to get this bed, you have to pay as much as you will pay for an adult mattress.

Mattresses are a long term investment no matter who you are, so you will need to make considerable room in your budget for this option if you actually feel it is a fit.
