What's The Best Organic Crib Mattress | Best Organic Baby Mattress
Considering a person spends nearly 20-30 percent of their life sleeping, making sure you spend time researching the best mattress for your needs is very important. This decision making process is compounded when considering which mattress to buy for your baby. You want your baby to be comfortable and safe. Knowing what is (and is not) in your baby's mattress is important, but the information may not be so easy to find. Infants spend more than 16 hours a day in their crib, making them more susceptible to chemicals inside the mattress. Not all crib mattresses are safe, and there is misleading information out there. What chemicals are in your baby's mattress is important to know.
A recent New Zealand study had determined a specific link between mattresses that contain chemical flame retardants and SIDS, noting that if the mattress was properly wrapped to prevent direct contact, the rates of SIDS deaths reduced to zero. Click here for full article.
Polyurethane foams in crib mattresses are also of concern. The two main of chemicals used in the manufacture of polyurethane foams are Toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and methylene diphenyldiisocyanate. Both substances are mutagenic and at least TDI is carcinogenic to animals. Although no direct studies have been performed on the effects of these chemicals on humans, a study conducted in 9 Swedish polyurethane manufacturing plants found increased rates of rectal cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in workers.
Purchasing mattresses, especially crib mattresses that are free of chemical flame retardants and polyurethane foams and replaced with organic and natural ingredients is a safer, healthier option. Organic mattresses are made with all-natural or organic materials, including cotton, wool, coconut fibers, food-grade polymers, natural latex. You can expect to pay around $200 for an organic crib mattress, with the most expensive brands being sold for over $400. The best Organic Crib mattresses contain organic wool or organic cotton, and organic coconut coir. The coconut coir provides a firm core that it breathable, resistant to mildew and durable. The wool will help dissipate heat and moisture, keeping your baby cooler and more comfortable. Wool also has natural antimicrobial properties and it also acts as a natural fire barrier.
