Getting ready for a baby to come is nerve-wracking, to say the least! Especially when it is your first child, you want to make sure the environment you’re bringing your baby home to is a safe and healthy one. While there are what feels like a million decisions to make for your new baby, choosing the right crib mattress is a crucial one. An infant can sleep nearly 22 hours when you first bring them home, and even as they age, the number is still many more hours than the average adult sleeps. They are going to be spending a large portion of their first several years on their mattress, so make sure that it is a quality, non-toxic crib mattress like those that we have here at Green Dream Beds.
Many people are surprised to learn the amount of chemicals and additives that go into mattresses, even mattresses specifically made for infants and children. Many mattresses are routinely pre-treated with fire-retardant, as well as made from phthalates and polyvinyl chloride. All of these chemicals have been linked to issues like asthma, obesity and other health problems. Since new babies and toddlers spend so much time in their beds, they are getting a more concentrated dose of these chemicals.
If you are worried about bringing home baby, give yourself peace of mind by bringing baby home to sleep on a safe, non-toxic crib mattress. To learn more about our selection of non-toxic crib mattresses here at Green Dream Beds, come and see us today.
