Why Your Child Should be Sleeping on an Organic Mattress

One of the first and most important decisions you’ll make for your child is choosing their mattress. From their crib mattress to their twin mattress, it is important to remember that babies and children have delicate systems that are still developing.  They also require plenty of support for their growing bodies. A mattress with good support is essential, but it is also important to consider what your mattresses are made of – is it made with all certified organic materials, or is it a synthetic, chemically treated mattress?

Many people underestimate the importance of buying a high-quality mattress for their child, be we are firm believers that they deserve – and will benefit immensely – from high-quality organic products from Palmpring Organic Mattress.

Lately, you may have seen many “natural” mattresses. Don’t forget – “natural” does not mean organic. Natural mattresses are still heavily treated with chemicals, and those natural materials are still grown with pesticides and insecticides. To truly be organic, you must succeed in acquiring organic certifications – such as GOLS, ECO INSTITUT, OEKO-TEX, GOTS, and many more – which we are proud to show on our website.

Materials in the Average Children’s Mattress

Just like the conventional queen or king mattress for adults, most crib or twin mattress for children are made from synthetic materials, especially polyurethane foam or memory foam, and treated with additional chemicals.

More and more adults are turning away from these materials and chemicals because they find it causes breathing problems, migraines, skin rashes, and can cause or exacerbate serious medical conditions, such as heart disease or cancer. This common concern is called off-gassing, when the chemicals from the mattress seep into their air and into the skin, is the largest concern among consumers and parents.

So if more adults are looking for a healthier, safer mattress, why not give the same option for children? When you consider a child’s developing body, it’s easy to see how these chemicals can affect their development and cause lifelong health problems.

Your Baby’s First Mattress

Your child will spend around three years of their life sleeping on their crib mattress. This is when their developing systems are the most delicate and susceptible to harm.

According to Healthy Child Enterprises, “Children’s respiratory, neurological, reproductive, and immune systems are in the early stages of development. This makes them more vulnerable to toxic chemicals. Of particular concern is brain development. Low-level chemical exposure during the critical period of brain development can cause more harm than high doses later in life.”

Children also can’t detoxify as efficiently as an adult does regularly. Bedtime is when the cells regenerate and their immune systems try to remove toxins. But think about how ineffective this process would be if they are continuously breathing and absorbing chemicals being given off by their mattress. Let’s not forget, children spend around 8-12 hours sleeping every night, giving them even more exposure to these toxic chemicals.

Why an Organic Twin Mattress?

So your little ones aren’t so little anymore, and they need a twin mattress. Many people don’t consider the importance of investing in an organic twin mattress for their children – mainly because they don’t realize how long their children will be using it! Most likely children will be living with their parents until they are 18 years old, and since we spend one-third of our lives sleeping, your organic mattress purchase will be put to excellent use!

 Palmpring’s Organic Twin Mattress provide even, sturdy support while still offering a variety of firmness levels, and made with certified organic latex, organic coconut coir, organic cotton, and organic wool.

A supportive mattress is essential for young bodies while they’re still growing, and is still important afterward for a well-rested sleep. Our organic mattresses are also more durable and comfortable, especially compared to the average spring or hybrid mattress. Our materials will not begin to break down or lose their shape after a few years – like many synthetic mattresses do. And of course, since there is no off-gassing, your child will never be exposed to the toxic chemicals that come from memory foam mattresses. We are proud to provide comfort, support, and durability while keeping all of our products certified organic and chemical-free.

Palmpring Organic Mattress believes that everyone should have the safest, healthiest mattress no matter the size of the mattress or the age of the individual.
