Natural Bedding for Your Baby
You're anxiously awaiting your new arrival. You've painted the nursery with low VOC paint, purchased furniture that's eco-friendly and dressed it with organic cotton fabric printed with non-toxic dyes. Now what kind of mattress will your child sleep on? If they're lucky, they'll get a Coco Mat from Natural Mat for sweet (and green) dreams.
Natural Mat creates the finest handcrafted mattresses for baby and child using all natural and organic materials including coir, lambswool, Mohair and more. But why buy a natural mattress? Well, there are many reasons. The first is that babies are very temperature sensitive. They need good ventilation to help regulate their body temperatures. Natural bedding allows for good air circulation to keep baby from overheating and sleeping, well, like a baby.
But one of the main reasons for going natural when it comes to bedding is allergies and asthma. With more and more little ones suffering from these, it's a welcome change to find bedding that has been bathed in a mixture made from essential oils (lavender, lemon and eucalyptus) which renders it anti-dust mite and gives certified allergy protection. The natural latex is hypo-allergenic and wards off dust-mites. It also comes with a washable cover to ensure allergy protection.
But that's not all. These natural mattresses are fire-retardant, give long-lasting support and are crafted from sustainable, fair-trade resources. So put your baby to sleep on something you can feel good about. That'll help you sleep like a baby, too.
