We believe that an organic crib mattress is one of the most important purchases you will make as a new parent. It is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the things you are told your baby will need during their first couple of years. One of the most important is your crib mattress. An organic crib mattress offers you the safest and healthiest option for your baby. Conventional crib mattresses can contain toxic chemicals, flame retardants, and off gassing materials. A baby’s immune system, nervous system, and organs are still developing and are so fragile. Organic crib mattresses offer your child a completely natural surface to sleep on with no off gassing or toxins being absorbed into their body. The investment in an all natural organic crib mattress is worth every penny. We offer everything from an affordable organic crib mattress to the most deluxe luxury organic crib mattress. Also, don’t forget that we offer free shipping on every organic crib mattress!
What is the best organic crib mattress?
The best organic crib mattress is one that offers you completely organic materials and no flame retardants, plastics, toxins, or off gassing. There are many brands out there that claim to have an “organic” mattress, but the truth is that only 70% of their materials need to be organic to be called “organic”. It is so important to do your research when going organic for your baby. We offer some really great brands that we believe are the best organic crib mattresses out there. Ecobaby, NaturalMat, and Vivetique are all dedicated to offering the most organic and natural baby mattresses available. We are proud to offer these brands and happy to answer any questions you may have about these great organic mattresses for baby. Please feel free to check out our organic crib mattress reviews and ratings as well.
Will an organic wool puddle pad keep the organic crib mattress dry?
Yes! An organic wool puddle pad is the only truly natural way to keep your crib mattress dry (especially if you choose one with cotton on the outside). It is highly recommended that you get an organic wool crib mattress pad to allow the moisture to puddle on top and not go through to the mattress. It is anti bacterial, anti fungal, and prevents dust mites. We do also recommend an organic cotton pad on top of the wool as an absorbent pad so your baby is not laying in the puddle (sheets can only soak up so much).
What are the health benefits of organic baby bedding and crib mattresses?
There has been research that suggests that organic crib mattresses may prevent SIDS. You can read more about the study done in New Zealand here. With no off gassing or toxins in your babies face while sleeping, your child is at a much less risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Beyond that, there is also some proof that going organic with your crib mattress may prevent allergies, asthma, and other serious health problems that may not show up until later but begins negatively working in tiny infant bodies.
How do I choose between the different options for crib mattresses?
We offer a wide range of organic crib mattresses while also trying to not overwhelm our customers. We offer: organic wool, organic coir, organic mohair, organic latex, and a combination of these crib mattresses. Please check our organic crib mattress education section for more information.
What about organic baby bedding?
If you are going to make the leap and buy and organic crib mattress, why then surround baby by sheets and bedding that are not organic? Conventional cotton uses a very large amount of pesticides that do not wash out for a long time. This is why we choose organic. We offer organic baby blankets, organic baby bedding sets, organic crib sheets, and more.
