Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Naturepedic Organic Kapok & Cotton Pillow {Review}

Naturepedic Organic Kapok & Cotton Pillow {Review}






This is a sponsored post.

Since I am pregnant, I now sleep with 3 pillows-one between my knees, one I lean slightly forward on, and one under my head. Before getting pregnant, I only slept with two pillows, so I needed to get another pillow. I'm slowly switching over to organic bedding. I figured I spend about 1/3 of my time in bed, so it's important to have natural, organic, non-toxic bedding.

Naturepedic
specializes in the design and manufacturing of quality organic mattresses for infants, toddlers, children and adults that promote natural and organic materials, a non-toxic design, fire-safety, and overall health & safety. 
Naturepedic was founded by Barry A. Cik after he looked on the market for an organic waterproof crib mattress and found there was none. Barry developed the first and only waterproof organic waterproof mattress designed with a food grade safe polyethylene cover. Today, Naturepedic also manufactures organic: pillows, mattress pads & toppers, changing pads, toddler pillows, sheets, etc.



I was sent a standard size organic cotton/organic kapok pillow. The outer fabric has 300 thread count organic fabric. The filling is a 50/50 blend of organic kapok and organic cotton. I had no clue what kapok was, but I learned from the packaging that Naturepedic's kapok fiber,
also known as "silk cotton", is certified organic and hand picked from the tropical kapok tree (ceiba pentandra). Kapok is very light and highly water resistant, helping wick away moisture while adding a softer and more comfortable feel.
It is GOTS certified organic and is available in these sizes:

  • LS54: Standard Size (20" x 26")
  • LQ54: Queen Size (20" x 30")
  • LK54: King Size (20" X 36")

Upon opening the package, I immediately noticed that the pillow is "spot clean only", which to me is a drawback. But this drawback actually encourages me to change and wash my pillow cases often. I have been using the pillow for over a month and love how soft it is. Plus, it is able to support me in just the right spots since I have to sleep on my side. If you are looking for a safe, non-toxic pillow, then I recommend this brand. The organic adult pillows range from $79-$139. I might get a toddler size for Charis, since the pillow she has is coming apart at the seam.

Do you use organic bedding? Why or why not?

I received a pillow for the purpose of this review.

  1. Great review. I'm also sleeping with 3 pillows for pregnancy comfort. One behind my back, between my knees, and for my head. I've been thinking of switching to organic as well, so I will have to check this out.

  4. That's so cute.. I would like to make the same one by my on, but now I'm pregnant and that's pretty hard to do something at all. So, I just found a place where I can buy best sleeping pillow for pregnancy and now I don't even have a pain in neck and back as I had it before. Maybe, it would be useful for you too.
