You want to give your baby the best of everything, so while you’re carefully preparing every detail for your little one’s arrival, be sure you don’t overlook his or her crib mattress. Your new bundle of joy will be sleeping up to 18 hours a day, which means he’ll be spending quite a bit of time in his crib. There are many compelling reasons to opt for an organic crib mattress in Sacramento, even though the cost may be a bit higher. Most of them are about what an organic baby mattress doesn’t have, rather than what it does.
Waterproofing is pretty important in an infant’s bedding, but most mattress manufacturers achieve this with plastics, or PVC. PVC is known to out-gas and release cancer causing agents. PVC waterproofing may also crack over time, allowing urine and bodily fluids to seep into the mattress and create bacteria.
