In order to meet federal regulations, before a company can stamp their product with "organic" they have to meet several requirements. This is the case, as well, with organic baby mattresses.
Babies and children are constantly exposed to chemicals. Most of these chemicals have never been tested for toxicity to babies and young children, so caution is recommended to keep your baby safe from exposure. You might be aware of the chemicals in crib, bassinet, cradle and porta-crib mattresses and are searching for a healthy organic baby crib mattress. Organic is important, but the main thing to determine is whether the mattress is non-toxic. Even organic mattresses can contain unsafe materials.
Touted as the most breathable completely organic baby mattress out there, this mattress by Natural Mat also includes a mattress protector. Its interior is filled with coir from the only certified organic coir in the world, and this natural material provides a breathable and supportive middle layer which offers great cushioning and comfort. The outer layer of the mattress is made of lambswool, a feature unique to the company, which is bathed in a soothing mixture of lemon, lavender and eucalyptus. As such, it is completely dust-mite free and will not irritate baby’s smooth skin. Moreover, the lambswool provides excellent thermal insulation for your infant as well, keeping baby warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather. Meanwhile, the organic cotton outer cover included with the mattress is removable and machine washable to kill all bacteria and dust mites as well as remove accumulated fluids from your child.
An organic baby mattress, on the other hand, tends to not have this issue. Most truly organic and natural crib and infant mattresses use organic or untreated wool as their batting. Wool is naturally mold and mildew resistant. In addition, an organic and natural mattress is breathable due to being made of natural fibers and materials. All of this helps to make a mold or mildew problem highly unlikely.
