Babies typically spend a lot of time sleeping, as this is essential for proper growth and development. Make sure that your baby has a comfortable sleeping surface that is appropriately firm and safe—like what a certified organic baby mattress can provide. Organic mattresses for babies are made of the finest materials such as extra firm natural latex, organic cotton fabric for the cover, and layers of natural wool. Your baby’s mattress should be firm enough to support his/her body and help him/her sleep comfortably.
Unlike conventional synthetic foam crib mattresses, organic baby mattresses are never doused in toxic pesticides and harmful chemicals such as flame retardants, which have been linked to cases of cancer, infertility, neurological and developmental disorders, memory deficit, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems, and a weakened immune system. Long term exposure to harmful chemicals like boric acid and antimony can cause kidney and lung damage, skin irritation, respiratory disorders, learning disabilities, and other such problems. Better to keep your child safe and healthy by investing in an organic baby mattress instead of scrimping and settling for a cheap and harmful mattress.
Wool is a natural fire retardant, so you do not have to worry about harmful chemicals off-gassing and getting inhaled or becoming absorbed through your baby’s skin when you buy an organic baby mattress. Some of the best organic mattresses for babies have an easy to clean cover, but you can prolong their service life by purchasing an organic cotton or wool mattress pad, too. Some models of organic baby mattresses come with an innerspring consisting of 250 coils and standard border wire for added durability.
When choosing organic bedding for your baby’s crib, make sure that the materials have passed the strict standards of the National Organic Program of the USDA. That way, you can be sure that you are buying a mattress and pads that are certified organic from the field to the finished product. Moreover, be sure to buy an organic baby mattress only from a reputable retailer that is a certified Gold business by Green America and a member of the Organic Trade Association. Be sure to arrange a visit to the retailer’s showroom to personally explore the selection of organic baby mattresses and learn more about them.
