Organic Crib Mattress vs. Traditional Crib Mattress

Everybody knows that babies are more sensitive than adults. For one thing, they have more hypersensitive skin that is prone to rashes if it touches even the mildest chemical. For another, their immune system is not strong enough to handle some of the most common irritants found in the environment. This is why it is paramount to ensure the baby’s safety by guaranteeing that they are using the right bedding while they are still vulnerable.

Unfortunately, traditional crib mattresses suffer the same manufacturing processes as those mattresses meant for adult usage – that is, they are also heavily treated with chemicals to meet the government’s standards for mattresses.

These chemical are no lightweights either. Crib mattresses are obliged to be resistant to fire, which is why you’ll find most are soaked with brominated flame retardants to meet this required standard. They also need to be waterproof, which means using a known carcinogen, polyvinyl chloride, as well as large amounts of industrial glue to keep it all together. Now imagine all these chemicals in close proximity with your sleeping child.

In contrast, an organic mattress is basically chemical-free from the time the fiber is plucked from its origin to the time it is manufactured. Depending on the natural fiber used, an organic mattress can still be flame-retardant and water-resistant without using any harmful chemicals to make it so. Wool from organically-raised sheep, for instance, is a great example of this. Another is organic cotton, which was long proven to be the gentlest, most comfortable, and most appropriate crib mattress for babies.

Babies spend most of their life sleeping. An organic mattress for their crib can help give you peace of mind that, even while they are sleeping, your love and protection are there to guide them through a restful slumber.
