Q: What is the difference between the Starlight Support and the Starlight Support Supreme mattress?
A: Both mattresses are constructed exactly the same (dual firmness, internal fire barrier, stretch knit fabric, etc.) with one exception: the Supreme has Gel/Visco elastic memory foam on the toddler side. So when you flip the Starlight Support, you flip from extra firm to firm. When you flip the Supreme, you flip from extra firm to a layer of visco elastic memory foam.
Q: What are the differences between the all-foam and innerspring mattresses?
A: The all foam models have a core made entirely of foam. Top and bottom layers of foam are added to create dual firmness comfort. The innerspring models have an innerspring coil core, which is encapsulated on all sides, top, and bottom with foam, creating a sandwich-like construction.
Q: When should the mattress be flipped from the infant side (extra firm) to the toddler side (firm)?
A: While all children progress differently, we recommend that you flip your mattress when your child is approximately nine months old. This is the age when they can typically move freely about the crib, becoming mobile and beginning to pull up into a sitting position. However, should you notice your child becoming restless during the night or naptime, it may be a sign that they are ready for the less firm toddler side.
Q: What is the fire barrier in Moonlight Slumber products?
A: Moonlight Slumber uses a natural, halogen free, patent-pending, internal fire resistant barrier. It is made of inherently fireproof materials with no topically applied chemicals, retardants or other additives. Further, it has been used in the healthcare industry for many years, exceeding all current Federal and State regulations.
Q: What is the difference between a fire retardant and fire resistant materials?
A: Fire retardant materials slow the spread of fire. Fire resistant materials do not burn. Moonlight Slumber products are 16 CFR Part 1633 compliant, meaning they are fire resistant. They have been proven, by independent tests, to withstand open flame.
Q: Are Nature's Star mattresses organic?
Q: Do you need to use a mattress pad or waterproof mattress cover with Moonlight Slumber mattresses?
A: It is up to personal preference as to whether you use a mattress pad or waterproof mattress cover. All Moonlight Slumber mattresses, even the Nature's Star, are manufactured with a premium, waterproof fabric. This fabric is smooth to the touch, warms under your baby, resists cracking and crunching, and can be cleaned with a damp sponge. Because there may be some stains that can never be removed you may want to use a mattress protector.
Q: Do regular size crib sheets fit Moonlight Slumber mattresses?
Q: What is the difference between the contour changing table pads and flat changing table pads?
A: The contour changing table pad has either two or four raised sides and a security strap to attach to your dresser. The Little Dreamer contour pad has two raised sides while the Starlight Supreme comes with four raised sides. The flat changing table pad is 1” thick, with no strap.
Q: Can Moonlight Slumber make custom crib mattress sizes?
A: Yes. Our mattresses are domestically made, right in the heart of Illinois, so we have complete control over the production lines. We can create custom crib, cradle and bassinet or pack-n-play mattresses at your request. The Nature's Star Mattress does not allow for customization.
Q: What is the best way to clean a Moonlight Slumber mattress?
A: Moonlight Slumber recommends the following method to clean a mattress: simply use a damp sponge and warm soapy water when necessary to clean a mattress. Avoid harsh chemicals.
