Mom’s 2018 Guide: Does My Baby Need An Organic Crib Mattress?

What do pediatricians say?

If you are a new parent to a newborn, the most important product on your registry list is going to be a crib mattress. As a parent, there are so many things to think about on the registry list, and safety is the prime factor. Our little one’s safety is our priority and our job: therefore we google research to find the safest options for our children.

    Expert Advice: The American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • Back to sleep for every sleep
  • Use a firm sleep surface
  • Infants should be placed on a firm sleep surface covered by a fitted sheet with no other bedding
  • There should be no gaps in cribs, and other sleeping locations
  • Do not have baby sleep on mattress topper age for infants younger than 1 years old

Ingredients In The Average Crib Mattress?

  • Foam
  • Synthetic Latex
  • Toxic Flame Retardants
  • Vinyl

The above ingredients carry toxins that overtime off gas in the room, creating a posionous environment for you baby. Research at The University of Texas at Austin has shown that these chemicals release 4 times as many VOC’s as old crib mattresses, body heat increases these emissions, and the chemical emission are strongest during infants breathing during naps and bedtime. This is alarming because infants inhale higher air volume than adults and sleep for longer hours, creating a higher rate of exposure of VOC’s.

Flame Retardants: A report in September 2017, Consumer Product Safety Commision issues a warning:

What Do The Experts Say?

Consumer Product Safety Commission: Recalls: Check out your mattress here to be sure it is not recalled. Check out for recalls on a new mattress, a current mattress you have, and if you have been given a mattress. It is best not to use a used mattress because of new laws, but if you do receive one, be sure to check if it has been recalled.

Dr. Brandon E. Boor,: Research Assistant from Purdue University
    “Our research shows mattresses can be a significant source of chemical contaminants in the nursery and bedroom,” Boor said.
