An organic baby mattress is the number one best green baby item to own. Your baby spends much of his time sleeping, so investing in an organic mattress is a great way to keep your baby safe from toxins and chemicals found in traditional mattresses. That said, not everyone can afford an organic mattress or maybe you already bought a non-organic mattress. If this is the case, then there are steps you can take to make your baby's sleeping space safer and less toxic. First of all, even if you didn't buy an organic mattress you can still use a non-vinyl mattress cover and invest in organic baby crib sheets. Secondly, research has found that most of the toxins and fumes released by mattresses are released early on, soon after you open the packaging. With that in mind, you can limit your baby's exposure to said fumes by taking the plastic off your mattress and allowing it to air out for a couple of months before your baby is due. This should release many of the fumes created by standard crib mattress baddies like PVC plastic polyurethane foam, and flame retardants.
