You’ve may have read about organic latex crib mattresses, but still unsure whether it’s right for your baby? Well, these types of mattresses have steadily become one of the most preferred mattress by those who value quality and are prepared to pay a little extra for it. That’s right, these mattresses are not cheap. For example, the Natural Mat 10410 latex crib mattress is one of the best out there but one of the most expensive, so be prepared to pay $500 or more for it.
So what’s in an organic latex crib mattress that makes it so high quality? First of all it contains natural components that won’t harm your baby. The organic latex mattress is made from rubber harvested from the rubber tree and processed naturally without the use of chemicals. It’s a great alternative to synthetic foam or combined materials used in many mattresses on the market. The latex crib mattress is naturally hypoallergenic from the lack of chemicals, plus its antibacterial so it doesn’t harbor dust mites, meaning a healthy, happy sleeping baby. Natural latex is also very durable and will last through the first years of your child’s development until he or she grows too big for it.
The Natural Mat 10410 contains a natural latex foam core and organic coir or coconut fibers that are super breathable and provide great support. Another component is non-allergenic lamb’s wool which repels dust mites, insulates in winter and cools in summer. Even the cover is made of organic cotton that you can unzip to wash.
You must make sure to research organic latex crib mattresses first before purchasing, since not all latex is ‘natural’ and can be combined with other materials. Being prepared and knowing what you’re looking for is important when buying the perfect sleeping surface for your child.
