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.
These chemicals that are used in these traditional mattresses are potentially very unhealthy to our babies. 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.
The firmness of a memory foam mattress is used in defining comfort. A memory foam mattress can be firm to supple. Because your weight is distributed evenly over a memory foam mattress, you get a firm feeling without your hips, back, and joints being compromised. And because a memory foam mattress adapts to your body heat, your body gets the cradling support it requires. Almost every Memory Foam Mattress is temperature sensitive. At lower temperatures, the mattress is firmer or more viscous while at higher temperatures, the memory foam mattress is softer making the mattress more comforting, as it is more elastic. The mattresss temperature sensitivity is responsible for the melting feeling you have whenever you are lying on it and this accentuates the foams molding affect. This is another thing that a spring mattress does not have. A spring mattress does not react to the heat of the users body. When it comes to maintenance, a spring mattress has to be rotated once in a while, preferably once every three months. This is done to even the wear and it is important that you avoid bending or folding the mattress. With a memory foam mattress on the other hand, you do not have to flip it over or rotate it: it virtually requires no maintenance.
