Best Non-toxic Organic Crib Mattress for Your Baby

May 5, 2020

Bedtime can be one of the most stressful times of the day. Especially in the early months before your baby can sleep through the night. Choosing the right crib and mattress can go a long way in relieving this stress. What’s more, this is especially hard, knowing that most companies use toxic materials, dangerous chemicals, and artificial fibers in their mattresses. So I decided to switch to a fully organic and non-toxic crib mattress, and I love knowing that my baby only gets the safest products, and is not inhaling any harsh chemicals or toxic vapors, which might affect her in the long run.

Like me, if you’re concerned about your child’s health and well-being (and frankly, who isn’t!), it’s time to make the switch to an organic non-toxic crib mattress. Here are some of the best and safest crib mattresses to consider, in my personal order of preference.
