Right now everyone is looking for green products! I had the chance to review the mother load of a green product. I had the chance to review an all organic crib mattress made by Naturepedic. So many of you out there wonder why should you go green with your crib mattress. Well, I will give you some great reasons why.
Naturepedic has created a mattress that is free of those nasty toxins, that are usually found in the typical mattress. Due to those toxins, many researchers say they have increased childhood disorders. Here are some of the toxins found in that typical mattress polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC), phthalates, chemical fire retardants or barriers, and a large list of industrial chemicals. Hmm.... Do you want you want your child breathing all of that in? Just think your little one sleeps between 10-14 hours. Wow! All of that has been inhaled. YIKES!
Want to know what's in the Naturepedic mattress? Ahh I will tell you, nothing but fabulous products that you can feel comfortable about laying your child on! A seamless design that is waterproof (when Kiwi spilled some milk it just rolled off) with dual firmness so your child can grow with it. So you are curious how can it be waterproof and toxic free huh? Well they use polyethylene an environmentally friendly plastic used throughout the food packaging industry for its purity and non-toxic properties. <---Yes an environmentally friendly plastic :) Trust me I am smiling right there with you. Also you get an organic cotton filling with orthopedic innerspring inside. At last a great hypoallergenic mattress, it has a dust mite barrier and it is free of wool and latex. It has fire protection that is toxic free. A little tid bit for you I had no idea that cotton does not burst into flames or release deadly fumes when ignited. Who would have known besides you local fire fighter. LOL
So my question to you is do you want your child sleeping in toxins? If not I would HIGHLY recommending head on over to Naturepedic and get one of these environmentally safe and children safe mattresses. I am glad my princess gets to get her beauty sleep on a mattress that won't harm her. So why not let your prince or princess feel like royalty on a Naturepedic mattress.
