What Makes a Kid's Organic Mattress a Healthy Bed?

What Makes a Kid's Organic Mattress a Healthy Bed?

What’s in a kid’s organic mattress that offers healthy sleep benefits you won’t find in a conventional bed?

It’s the breathable, natural materials: organic cotton, wool and natural latex. Each one of these materials has its own unique natural properties that provide your child with safe, comfortable sleep. Here’s how they work:

Certified Organic Cotton

Certified organic cotton used in our kid’s natural and organic mattresses as padding and quilted cover allows your child to:

  • Sleep without breathing in toxic chemicals. Certified organic cotton replaces harmful polyurethane foam padding and chemically treated synthetic casings.
  • Sleep cool and cozy. Organic cotton breathes allowing air to circulate through the padding and cover, which keeps excess heat from building up.

Organic Wool

A layer of organic wool batting sandwiched into the cover of our Little Lamb Natural Latex Mattresses helps your child:

  • Sleep safe. Wool naturally resists flame without toxic chemical fire retardants.
  • Stay dry and comfortable. Wool is amazing at absorbing and releasing excess body heat as your child sleeps.
  • Feel warm without overheating. Wool acts a light layer of insulation, providing comfortable thermal warmth that’s cozy and consistent through the night.
  • Sleep without the sniffles. Wool is naturally dust-mite and mildew resistant, which naturally reduces common allergens in the bed.

Natural Latex

A mattress made of at least 95% natural latex (real foam rubber with no synthetic fillers) such as our Little Lamb kid’s bed provides your child with:

  • Comfortable warmth. Natural latex breathes and doesn’t feel hot from storing up body heat like memory foam.
  • Long lasting support. Natural latex is a durable material that moves with the body and provides resilient comfort.
  • Restful sleep. Natural latex naturally deters common allergens such as dust-mites and mildew.

Does your child have a latex allergy? We suggest consulting with your allergist for advice before purchasing a natural latex mattress. Some customers who are mildly allergic are still able to sleep on a natural latex mattress as long as they have someone else handle the “raw” latex layers and zip on the cover. Once the mattress is encased and made-up with bedding you are well shielded. If you have a serious reaction to natural latex we recommend going with an organic cotton innerspring mattress instead.
