7 Natural and Organic Crib & Youth Mattress
Organic Mattresses Matter
We spend more than 30 percent of our lives sleeping, and babies sleep upwards of 10 to 20 hours per day. This accumulation of time is significant, and the mattresses that our little ones are sleeping on matter.
Traditional mattresses are made with polyurethane foam made from petroleum and are often soaked or sprayed with toxic fire retardants, such as formaldehyde or benzene. Crib mattresses are often coated in vinyl, which is waterproof but contains chemical plasticizers that leach and can be inhaled.
Because babies under two years of age are particularly vulnerable to environmental toxins, it is essential to reduce chemical exposure and prioritize a mattress with natural ingredients. While there are a lot of products on the market—from niche brands to sustainable lines from larger manufacturers—here are seven sustainable brands making safe products for your little ones.
