picture-035.jpgWhen creating a green nursery, your baby’s crib mattress is one item you might not want to skimp on. According to the Healthy Child website, toxic chemicals such as PVC, phthalates, polyurethane foam, and fire retardants are often found in crib mattresses. If you’re looking to reduce your child’s exposure to some of these harsh chemicals, then look no further than the Coco Mat Organic Crib Mattress from Natural Mat. Handmade in England, The Coco Mat is filled with organic coir made from sustainably sourced coconut husks coated with natural latex and then wrapped in lambswool. Try repeating that five times fast! Phew! This 100% organic mattress is high quality and completely free of glues, bonding agents, chemicals, plastics and PVC. Plus, all Natural Mat mattresses are naturally fire retardant (details here) and they source their raw materials from 100% renewable and sustainable sources that adhere to fair-trade policies. Wow! There are so many great features about these mattresses, it’s hard to stop gabbing about them! Just one more thing bears mentioning – my 15-month-old sleeps on his Coco Mat like…well, like a baby…and his smile every morning is testimony that Coco Mat isn’t just a safer mattress, it’s a comfortable one too. Now, if only they’d make it in Queen size!
