Benefits of an Organic Crib Mattress

The morning sickness continues to plague me all…..day, so I decided to try to cheer myself up by continuing my Baby Shower Madness with our review of the Naturepedic NO-COMPROMISE™ ORGANIC COTTON ULTRA
Baby Crib & Toddler Mattress

Between the ages of birth and one year, babies will spend about 70% of the time sleeping. Given that statistic, deciding what your baby will be sleeping on is a very important decision that should not be taken lightly. After a lot of research, I became sold on the idea that I would go Organic as far as crib mattresses go this time around.

Many Non-Organic crib mattresses contain a number of materials with questionable effects. Experts are starting to look at everything from polyurethane foam to chemical fire retardants to see what kinds of effects they may have on growing babies. Some studies have even shown a link between chemicals added as fire retardants and an increase in SIDS

Some experts say that Organic crib mattresses, with their natural ingredients, allow air to flow freely through the mattress. The better air circulation may help your baby breathe better. In addition, some studies suggest that the organic cotton may lead to a lower incidence of allergic reactions.

After researching Organic crib mattresses, I was most impressed with Naturepedic because they received the most awards and endorsements of any child mattress company on the market. They also  regularly test their products for chemical emissions and are certified by GREENGUARD? to meet their strict standards for children.

I ordered the NO-COMPROMISE™ ORGANIC COTTON ULTRA Baby Crib & Toddler Mattress and am very impressed with my choice. It provides firm support, provides an Organic cotton waterproof cover, is hypoallergenic, and provides fire protection. It is also one of the most reasonable prices on the market.

Naturepedic mattresses are sold in fine stores throughout the USA, or you can order online, and for about $35, the mattress will be delived to your door.
