Keep Your Child Safe and Healthy with Organic Materials
Child Mattresses That Help Achieve the Best Sleep Possible
Sleep is a vital aspect of health and well-being, and it is particularly important for children who are still developing physically and mentally. A good night's sleep can help children grow, learn, and stay healthy. Providing them with a mattress made with organic and natural certified materials ensures the best sleep possible.
What are Organic and Natural Certified Materials?
Organic materials are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, and are free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Natural materials, on the other hand, are derived from natural sources, such as wool, latex, and cotton, and are not treated with harmful chemicals during the production process. When it comes to mattresses, PlushBeds' Healthy Child Organic Kids Mattress and the Healthy Child Cooling Gel Mattress are constructed with organic and natural materials, rather than synthetic materials, which are often treated with chemicals that can be harmful to both the environment and human health. In the case of our Cooling Child Mattress, though not natural or organic, the memory foam is CertiPUR-US certified, as well as GreenGuard Gold certified for low emissions.
Why Choose a Natural/Organic Mattress for Your Child
One of the main benefits of choosing an organic and natural mattress for your child is that it can help reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals. Many traditional mattresses are made with synthetic materials that contain harmful chemicals such as flame retardants, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals can be harmful to human health, and exposure to them has been linked to a range of health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, and even cancer. By choosing an organic and natural mattress, you can help reduce your child's exposure to these harmful chemicals, and create a safer and healthier sleeping environment.
Another benefit of choosing an organic and natural mattress for your child is that it can provide better support for their growing bodies. Organic and natural materials, such as natural latex and wool, are known for their ability to provide excellent support and comfort. These materials can contour to your child's body, providing support where they need it most, and helping to reduce pressure points that can cause discomfort, and disrupt sleep. Additionally, natural materials are often more breathable than synthetic materials, which can help regulate your child's body temperature, and keep them comfortable throughout the night.
A Positive Impact on the Environment
Choosing an organic and natural mattress for your child can also have a positive impact on the environment. Traditional mattresses are often made with synthetic materials that are not biodegradable and can contribute to pollution and waste. Organic and natural materials, on the other hand, are biodegradable, and can be recycled or composted at the end of their life. By choosing an organic and natural mattress, you can help reduce your environmental impact, and promote sustainability.
All of PlushBeds' mattresses for kids are either certified organic and natural by the reputable Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) for our organic cotton, and the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) for our organic latex, or GreenGuard Gold and CertiPur US certified, which guard against harfmul chemicals and emissions. These certifications ensure that the materials used in our kids mattresses are either truly organic and natural, or have enhanced health and safety characteristics, and that they have been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
By reducing their exposure to harmful chemicals, you are making a wise investment in your child's health, well-being, and future.
Frequently-Asked Questions About Child Mattresses
What size mattress should I get for my child?
The size of the mattress will depend on the age and size of your child. A Twin or Twin XL mattress is suitable for most children. However, if you have a larger child, or if you want the mattress to last into their teenage years, you may want to consider at least a Full.
Is a Foam or Hybrid Mattress Better for Children?
Both foam and hybrid fabric-encased coil mattresses can be suitable for children. Latex and memory foam mattresses tend to offer more pressure relief, while hybrid fabric-encased coil mattresses offer more motion isolation and breathability. The choice ultimately depends on your child's individual needs and preferences.
How Firm Should a Child's Mattress Be?
A child's mattress should be firm enough to provide adequate support for their growing body. Too soft of a mattress can cause improper spinal alignment, and lead to back pain. Most pediatricians recommend a firm mattress for children.
When Should I replace My Child's Mattress?
Generally speaking, a traditional child's mattress should be replaced every 8-10 years, or sooner if it shows signs of wear and tear. Signs that a mattress needs to be replaced include sagging, visible wear and tear, or if your child is consistently waking up with aches and pains. However, PlushBeds kids mattresses are in fact warrantied for life. How's that for saving money in the long run?
Are Organic Mattresses Worth the Investment for Children?
Yes, organic mattresses are worth the investment for children, as they are made with natural and non-toxic materials. This reduces exposure to harmful chemicals, and promotes a healthier sleep environment. Additionally, organic mattresses are more durable, and last much longer than traditional mattresses.
What are the Benefits of a Waterproof Mattress Cover for a Child's Mattress?
A waterproof mattress cover can protect the mattress from spills, accidents, and stains. This can help extend the life of the mattress, and prevent the growth of mold and bacteria. Additionally, a waterproof mattress cover can help promote a healthier sleep environment by reducing the risk of allergens and dust mites.
How can I Clean and Maintain My Child's Mattress?
Regularly rotating the mattress can help prevent sagging, and prolong the life of the mattress. Additionally, using a waterproof mattress cover can help protect the mattress from spills and stains. If the mattress becomes soiled, spot cleaning with a mild detergent and water can be effective. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as this can damage the mattress.
What Type of Bedding is Best for a Child's Mattress?
Natural and breathable materials, such as organic cotton or bamboo, are best for a child's mattress. These materials can help promote a healthy sleep environment, and reduce the risk of allergens and dust mites. Additionally, choosing bedding that is easy to clean and maintain can help prolong the life of the mattress.
Are There any Safety Standards or Certifications I Should Look for When Purchasing a Child's Mattress?
Look for certifications such as GreenGuard Gold, OEKO-TEX, GOLS, and GOTS to ensure that the mattress is made with natural and non-toxic materials. Additionally, make sure the mattress meets federal flammability standards, and is free of any harmful chemicals or materials.
