When preparing for a baby, every decision is important. Parents do their best to provide their children with safe products that will promote healthy development. They may want to make sure the baby’s food does not contain GMOs and that the child’s toys do not pose any choking hazards. But what about the potential health risks babies encounter while sleeping? The majority of ordinary baby mattresses contain harmful chemicals that are released into the air your baby breathes while sleeping. And since babies typically sleep for about 14-16 hours per day, the release of toxins from their mattress (a process known as off-gassing) exposes your child to a significant intake of harmful chemicals. Find out more about what is in an ordinary baby mattress and see how they stack up against organic mattresses in our new infographic.
