Congratulations, you have a new addition to your family! One of the many things that a couple purchases to prepare for their newborn is a crib. It is a must-have and you want to select one that ensures the safety of your baby. Your safety concerns should also extend to the mattress you select for your baby’s crib. You should definitely consider choosing a chemical-free and organic mattress for your child.
Your Baby’s Mattress Dissected
When selecting a mattress, sheets and pillows for the crib many parents consider the price, aesthetics and physical safety features such as a firm mattress to keep the baby from suffocating and not having an area where the baby can get stuck between the mattress and the frame. They often don’t stop to consider that they may be choosing bedding, sheets or pillows that may have their infant breathing in volatile chemicals. This is not a good thing, especially during their development stage.
