Babies sleep 10 to 14 hours a day, so naturally, you'll want to choose a safe and non-toxic spot for them to catch all those Z's. Traditional mattresses are layered with a variety of chemicals including PVC, polyurethane foam and toxic flame-retardants. If you go shopping for an organic crib mattress you'll find lots of options at a variety of price points from a variety of brands. But before you snatch up any organic crib mattress deal, you should know that they aren't all created equal. Even though a mattress may be labeled as organic, natural or eco-friendly, it may still include a vinyl covering or be coated in dangerous flame-retardants because there is little control over what those labels mean. So how can you be sure you're getting a non-toxic crib mattress for your baby? We narrowed down the field to bring you our seven favorite organic crib mattresses that meet fire safety standards naturally. There's one for every budget ranging in price from $595 to $259. Note: If you're worried about possible wool or latex allergies, you may want to opt for one of our crib mattress picks made from other materials. Once you pick your mattress be sure to check out our favorite eco-friendly modern cribs.
Nook Sleep Systems Pebble Pure Organic Mattress
The newest crib mattress from Nook Sleep Systems provides the same pebbled surface that promotes air circulation and maximum breathability, but the Pebble Pure is dual-sided. It features a certified organic coconut core layered with 1 inch of latex and wrapped in eucalyptus. This way it can provide a super-breathable and firm sleep environment for infants and a more cushioned surface for toddlers. To combat wet beds and messes, the Pebble Pure comes with a machine-washable, removable cover.
