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.
