The world of eco-friendly baby products is a quickly-changing one. Just months ago, Joy was expecting her second child. In her confessional post, she admitted that she couldn’t bear spending so much more for an organic crib mattress. Our readers assured her that she needn’t feel guilty. But now, just a few months later, there are several very affordable “greener” mattresses on the market! Look at the ones we found:
Sealy Baby Ultra Rest Mattress $70 (21% off!)
This mattress has three non-allergenic layers. The top layer provides a plush, soft sleeping surface for baby.
Made from 150 interwoven steel coils and certified organic cotton certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A hypoallergenic sleeping layer and a protective wrap prevents allergens from clinging to the mattress.
Sealy Naturalis Crib Mattress with Organic Cotton $90 (25% off)
The Sealy Naturalis Crib Mattress with organic cotton includes naturally harvested and handled organic cotton and a hypoallergenic sleeping layer plus protective wrap for support and comfort.
*Our top pick!* Sealy Soybean Foam-Core Crib Mattress $149.
Uses a renewable resource—soybeans!—instead of relying on crude oils. This soy-based high-density foam doesn’t sag. The cover prevents allergens from clinging to the mattress.
Made from plant-based materials instead of petroleum products.
The Willow mattress is made from a natural coconut palm fiber and latex-free foam to create a completely organic inner foundation that supports your baby’s sleep. It can be used on both sides.
If any of our faithful readers have tried one of these mattresses, we welcome your reviews! Did you find an eco-friendly option we haven’t mentioned? Or did you manage to forgo the crib altogether, opting to co-sleep with your baby? What worked for you?
