Organic Crib Mattress

Yep, we did it. We got our baby an organic mattress for his crib. Even though the sales girls at BuyBuy Baby had never even heard of all the hype about non-organic mattress fumes causing sudden infant death syndrome, and the theory is supposedly completely unfounded ... we decided to skip the risk and shell out the extra money. It kinda makes sense that the preservative chemicals sprayed on a mattress are too much for a seven pound newborn baby to breathe in, night after night. After all, pregnant women are told to avoid paint fumes and household cleaners, could there really be that much of a difference? Matt and I feel confident that our decision wasn't made in vain, our money wasn't wasted, and all three of us in our new little family will be able to sleep better at night.


  1. I am very proud of you and happy that you are making such a great choice for your baby!! Have you thought about cloth diapers and wipes for your little boy as well?

  2. That’s a very smart decision, Meghann! When buying a crib mattress for your baby, the safety of the mattress should be your main concern. And the safest mattress that you can buy is made of all-natural or organic materials, usually cotton or wool. This is may be quite expensive than the non-organic one, but you’re sure that it does not pose any risk to your baby. Non-organic mattresses sometimes contain toxic gases and other harmful substances that can induce allergic reaction in babies, or worse, it can result to sudden infant death, just like what you mentioned. #Dante Storey
