Organic Crib & Crib Mattress
Childhood disorders have been rising dramatically. These disorders include autism, ADD/ADHD, asthma, allergies, cancer, and more. They were extremely rare only thirty to forty years ago. While the sources for this dramatic increase in childhood disorders are not fully known, there is mounting evidence and a good reason to suspect environmental factors, particularly toxic chemicals, as playing a significant role. Children are far more vulnerable to toxic chemicals than adults, especially within their first few years of life.
Babies and toddlers spend 10-14 hours a day sleeping and playing on a crib mattress. Furthermore, a child’s every breath inhales air no more than six inches away from these chemicals. As such, for the first few years of a child’s life, the mattress is the single most prominent object in the child’s environment.

By learning you will be able to remove chemicals found in conventional mattresses such as flame retardants, adhesives, vinyl, VOCs, polyurethane foam, isocyanates, perfluorinated compounds, and other questionable chemicals.
When we shop for authentic organic and natural mattresses, we need to study their material.
To make sure they aren't toxic we want to start with their foams.
❌ POLYURETHANE FOAM: this foam is toxic and polluting. The most common beds are made of memory foam (or viscoelastic foam), flexible polyurethane foam, coils, or combinations of these materials. Both memory foam and Flexible polyurethane foam are polyurethane foams. These cheap, unhealthy foams are petroleum products, meaning they are derived from fossil fuels.
❌ SOYBEANS FOAM: These foams are full of pesticides, so avoid that too.
Not recommended Brands
❌ Lullaby Earth is not clean natural, it doesn't carry the necessary certifications, plus their mattresses are made of polyethylene (Human any irritant - strong evidence) and polyester, two synthetic and polluting materials.
You may learn that your current mattress is not that healthy, so you are considering upgrading to a truly organic mattress, even better a CERTIFIED ORGANIC MATTRESS.
These are the certifications to look at when shopping for an organic mattress
✅ GOLS CERTIFICATION: The Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) is a materials and processing standard for organic latex and finished latex foam. In addition to the use of organic raw material, this standard also concentrates on human health, safety and welfare, and the environment in the manufacturing process of organic latex products. The best certification for a foam mattress.
✅ GOTS CERTIFICATION: The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world's leading processing standard for organic textiles and fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
✅ MADE-SAFE: certifies products made with ingredients not known or suspected to cause human health harm, It certified the mattress is non-toxic.
✅ UL/GREENGUARD is a third-party certification program that tests for chemical emissions from consumer products and materials.
✅ FSC: Forest Stewardship Council® / Rainforest Alliance practices mission-based principles designed to promote health, limit environmental impact, and support social responsibility.
✅ OCS100: The Organic Exchange OCS100 Certification Program ensures proper tracking of organic material from its source to the finished product.
✅ LATEX-Talalay Foam is a better foam made with natural rubber from trees. Talalay is softer and airier.
✅ LATEX- Dunlop Foam with an organic GOLS Certification is the best foam around for a mattress. Note: Dunlop latex is denser than Talalay-latex.
In conclusion: Certified Organic latex is the best option. It is a plant-based material that naturally contours to your unique sleeping position to provide comfortable support. Memory foam, on the other hand, is made from polyurethane foam and commonly contains harsh chemicals and toxins. Additionally, organic latex has been shown to have a quicker recovery time, less motion transfer, and provides natural cooling properties.

Organic Spring Green Sleigh Slat Crib
I only recommend this crib brand for the following reasons:
It is non-toxic made with 100% solid wood, from local American sustainably grown trees.
while the majority of the other companies are made in China, this company's nursery furniture made by hand in the USA in Southern California
Instead to use paint they use a natural alternative: linseed oil
Their crib can be converted into a bed later on.
They can give many options such as their crib can be ordered with our all natural, chemical-free, and formaldehyde-free oil finish.
All their solid wood cribs are truly all-natural, non-toxic, eco-friendly, and are made in the USA.
Currently, I did not found a better brand than this. In my research, it is the best on the market for the reasons mentioned above.
