Chemicals that are used in these typical mattresses off-gas and the babies breath these gasses while they are sleeping. Phosphorus, antimony and arsenic are some of the chemicals that are used in the manufacture of the typical crib mattress. While there isnt actual proof that the use of these chemicals in these mattresses is related to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), what is known is that after chemicals were initially added to crib mattresses, the incidents of SIDS rose dramatically. While the chemicals used for the filling are bad enough, the moisture-proof vinyl covering has various potential health hazards as well. According to the FDA, the vinyl that has been used in the moisture-proof outer layer has been known to cause allergic reactions in many humans. Another issue with the moisture-proof vinyl outer layer is that this material does not breath and restricts air flow. When you consider that in conjunction with the chemicals used inside the traditional crib mattress it gets pretty scary. Even though the vinyl outer layer is moisture-proof, these chemicals can still leach through it and your baby can breath the gasses while inside the crib. The good news is that an organic crib mattress offers a safe and healthy option.

In the UK they are popular with younger people who are on a very tight budget as they are very affordable. The mattresses can be used on the floor or a frame can be purchased to make it more of a bed.

A twin (or "single") mattress is great for day beds and bunk beds, as well as guest rooms! Many twin mattress size buyers are looking for their childrens needs - it is simply perfect for a childs bedroom. This will give the child enough room to sleep for years, maximizing bedroom space and making room for toys, a desk, a dresser and more. It will be quite some time before he or she will need a full or queen size mattress! Has your old mattress seen its better days? If so, there is no better time to consider the purchase of an organic mattress. They are available in all standard sizes including crib; twin extra long and California King. Initially, you might think that a natural mattress is out of your price range. However, it shouldnt take long for you to realize that the overall benefits that these sleep surfaces provide are well worth the extra expense. An organic mattress typically lasts two to three times longer than a conventional one. Many have a life span of more than 20 years. This fact, alone, represents a huge savings. Synthetic mattresses emit dangerous fumes, on a continuous basis, which are especially harmful to children. Organic mattresses do not present this problem.

The firm mattresses include the Orbit, Neptune Cotton Only and the Single Foam futon mattresses. Usually, these firm mattresses have very little foam, and are cotton only, giving it the firm feeling. The ones with foam use a denser foam that makes the mattress less soft. These mattresses are great for people who like to sleep on something firm and who need the additional support. The extra-firm mattresses include the Simmons Monarch 2 and the Liberty Futon Mattress. Some of these mattresses are created with very dense layers of foam from top to bottom. Finally, the ultra-firm mattresses are for those that love to sleep on the ground. These mattresses are usually not recommended for a futon frame, but more for a platform bed. These are for people who want that firm feeling of a traditional Japanese futon mattress. The high density of the foam makes these mattresses very heavy and harder to move around.

However, they mostly use slightly different outer layer and filling materials. Since there are many safe and healthy options available today, understand that you are not looking for just one option when shopping for an organic mattress. Some items you ought to look for in an organic mattress include: The use of 100% organic cotton and wool - both in the filling and the outer layer of the crib. There are not any herbicides or pesticides used on organically grown cotton crops. The fire retardants that are used in organic mattresses are organic. As we mentioned before, the chemicals that are used in traditional mattresses, to protect against fire can have serious health effects. In-crib fire barriers are required per governmental regulations. Organic fire retardants such as baking soda, hydrated silica, cellulose fiber and wool, which is a natural fire retardant, are some of the products you should look for. These are all natural alternatives that may meet the fire protection requirement of crib mattresses.

Because of the biodegradable materials used in their construction, they decompose at a faster rate than synthetic mattresses. They are also not as damaging to recycling equipment. It is alarming to note that millions of vinyl mattresses are dumped into landfills each year, taking up much needed (shrinking) space. All organic mattresses are not 100% natural. Has your old mattress seen its better days? If so, there is no better time to consider the purchase of an organic mattress.

Many people are becoming aware of the importance of avoiding products that are created without the use of harmful toxins and other materials which are harmful to us and the environment, and since we spend so much of our time in bed, this has special importance to our babies. Therefore purchasing an mattress for your baby has many health benefits. While we will look at these, lets initially look at some possible problems with the crib mattresses that have been the standard for years. Traditional Mattresses - The Problem. Mattresses have been produced basically in an unchanged manner for years. To protect the outside of the mattress against the likely diaper spill event, these mattresses are encased with a impervious vinyl covering. The soft inner fiber used to stuff the mattress looks strangely similar to the insulation that is used to fill our home ceiling and wall cavities. Although this makes for a moisture-proof mattress and one that is comfortable, there are toxins used in the chemicals used to make the stuffing fire-proof.
Fabienne Gendron Furniture, 2017-12-07 09:28:44. Hard Vs Soft Mattress. Mattresses come in a wide range of solidity. From the ultra soft to the extremely hard, it is more a matter of preference than necessity. However, there are some basic truths that hold for the majority of us. Very soft cloud-like mattresses can wreak havoc on bad backs. This is because there is very little support in a soft mattress. While hard mattresses might be better for a bad back, very hard mattresses can cause just as much trouble. It all boils down to what works best for each individual.
