When your child is happy and healthy during the daytime yet sneezes, sniffles and coughs while asleep in his or her crib at night and for naps, allergies may be to blame. An organic mattress with a protective hypoallergenic lining may help to lessen your child’s allergy symptoms. Understanding the variety of ways in which an organic baby mattress can help your child will assist you in determining if this type of bedding would be right for your baby.
Causes of Bed Allergies
The most common cause of allergies related to sleep and nap times is dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic critters that live anywhere that dust accumulates. Because babies spend so much time sleeping, they are exposed to all of the dust that settles on their mattress, as well as those that land on curtains, blinds, carpeting and furniture in their bedrooms.
