When you consider how many hours of your adult life you’ll be spending unconscious, an organic mattress is a great investment—especially if you plan on co-sleeping with baby. Have you purchased one? The Naturepedic Organic Cotton Quilted Deluxe pictured below is priced at just under 1200 bucks…which is more than Rebecca and I each spent on our entire first year with our babies.
Since organic mattresses run about three times their conventional counterparts, cost was a limiting factor for my family. In fact, we would still be sleeping on a very low quality full size mattress if our friends wouldn’t have given us their used queen size mattress, which didn’t happen to be organic. If I knew then everything I know now about flameproofing materials in mattress production, I would probably have splurged on the organic waterproof mattress cover by Naturepedic ($139) when I co-slept with my babies.
Would you like to replace your mattress with an organic version? Did you buy an organic crib mattress for baby? Is cost an issue for your family? Would an organic mattress pad quell your worries?
