Big Kids, Healthy Mattresses

Big Kids, Healthy Mattresses. So much hype about healthy baby crib mattresses, and yes that is super important.  Big Kids need healthy mattresses too!  Both  my daughters were climbing out of the their crib at age 12 mos.  We moved to toddler bed and then to a twin mattresses with a guard at age 3.  Big kids, Healthy mattresses are important also as your child gets older, even into the teens. Whatever the age of your child, sleeping on a mattress without off gassing toxic chemicals is important.  Kids still are developing and their brain and lungs are effected by the chemicals in mainstream mattresses, and bedding.  Organic mattresses, Green Mattresses, that use natural fire retardants are so  much more healthier than mattresses that have harsh chemical contents and toxic fire retardants  ( Environmental Working Group).  It can take years for these chemicals, fire retardants to off gas. Imagine years of a child breathing in chemicals.  Fire retardants have been linked to serious diseases.

In the scheme of marketing and advertisements many of us forget big kids need a healthy mattresses.  Toxic mattresses have  been linked to allergies, asthma among other illnesses.  Healthy mattresses and healthy non toxic bedding help keep your big kid sleeping healthy and sleeping well and feeling their best.

Big Kids perform better with healthy amount of sleep, sometimes sleeping as much as 11 hours a day, while growing.  Sleep is important to their immune system, brain function, body growth and mood.  Since our face is so close to the  bedding and mattress, the mattress contents are so important.  Whatever the mattress is made of, is what will be inhaled while sleeping.

Buying an Organic Mattress

Buying an Organic Mattress

There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding to buy an Organic mattress.  If you have medical conditions, it would be good to speak to a medical Dr. or a Chiropractor about what might be good for your back.

Do research before you buy. Not all Natural mattresses or Organic mattress are created equal.  You need to know what you are buying the contents of the mattress and chemicals, if any, that could cause issue with allergies, asthma etc.

One of the biggest complaints I hear from people is that they just purchased an expensive mainstream mattress and now they can’t sleep on it due to the odor from off gassing. They then have an expensive mattress they cannot use.

Check out the complaints and the reviews to make sure what you are buying is highly rated.

Ask about return policies to make sure that if your unhappy with your mattress, you can return it.  Our mattresses come with a guarantee.

Check the warranty on the mattress, good quality mattresses have a good warranty.

Remember that firm mattresses aren’t always best, depends on your body type, weight and your health condition, same with pillow top mattresses.  Marketing campaigns will convince you that you need a top of the line pillow top mattress, not necessarily true.  Studies suggest that light weight people don’t need a pillow top mattress. Their weight doesn’t weigh them down enough to get to the underlying support, heavier adults might need more cushion under their body. I’ve heard many complaints of people buying the memory foam mattresses thinking they would be soft, only to find out they are too firm, and uncomfortable.

Not all Organic mattresses are created equal.  Check out the mattress contents, reviews and ratings before buying an Organic mattress. You investment will be worthwhile.
