Natural Mat’s Organic Cotton and Natural Latex Mattress: The Coco Mat

By |March 27, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, MACT Award Winners, Nursery, Nursery Room, Product Reviews|

Natural Mat is a respectable mattress company that passes strict US Fire Retardants standards without any use of toxic fire retardants. Right on!  This is not easy to find.  (Please beware of the “organic” label on mattresses unless you really know what you are looking for.) Natural Mat is truly a safe, non-toxic, chemical-free crib mattress that we recommend. Natural Mat uses natural latex, cruelty-free wool and organic cotton in their mattresses.  However, their Coco Mat is latex free. ‘Natural Latex’ was a topic we were feeling quite confused with, so  Natural Mat helped clarify with us how their “natural” process works since they do use natural latex in their more expensive line of organic mattresses.  Also, we cover the subject of potential allergies, and other important concerns in our exclusive interview below!

Non-toxic Crib Mattress: Organic doesn’t mean safer!

By |March 25, 2009 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Nursery, Nursery Room, Product Reviews|

Knowing now the dangers of fire retardant to our children, the thought of having my baby face down, or even face up, on a product that is riddled with these dangerous chemicals is frightening. It is also unsettling to think that a mattress can be labeled “organic”, and STILL contain toxic hormone, reproductive, and neurological-disrupting chemicals. Yes, you read that one correctly. An “organic” mattress does NOT mean “free of toxins” or “natural.” (Something to loose sleep over when it comes to the product your baby spends over half of their young years on.) You could be getting fooled by toxic marketing techniques! So, before you spend your money to keep your most precious angel safe and dreamy, read this! […]
