Q: What is the CertiPUR-US certification program?
A: CertiPUR-US certification is based on the standardized chemical analysis that tests for low emissions for indoor air quality, environmental guidelines, physical performance and random compliance verifications. This certification is given for approved foams made without PBDEs, Phthalates, Ozone Depleters, Mercury, Lead, Heavy Metals, Formaldehyde and Methylene Chloride.
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 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. A top and bottom layer 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 an all-natural, 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 retard fire—they slow its spread. Fire resistant materials do not burn. Moonlight Slumber products are 16 CFR Part 1633 compliant, meaning they are fire resistant. In independent testing, they have been proven to withstand open flame.
Q: Are Natures Star mattresses organic?
A: No. The Natures Star mattress has substituted all-natural cotton in place of foam. The cotton is not bleached, dyed, or chemically altered.
Q: What is the difference between organic cotton and natural cotton?
A: For a crop to be certified organic, it is required to be grown without use of toxins, fertilizers and synthetic pesticides. Natural cotton may be grown in a manner consistent with modern commercial farming techniques. However, both natural and organic cotton products are unaltered upon harvesting. Neither is treated with chemicals, bleach or dye in the manufacturing process.
Q: Do you need to use a mattress pad or waterproof cover with Moonlight Slumber mattresses?
A: No. All Moonlight Slumber mattresses, even the Natures 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.
Q: Are Moonlight Slumber mattresses JPMA Certified?
A: No, JPMA does not have a certification program for mattresses or pillows. Moonlight Slumber is however a JPMA member.
