Many people are becoming aware of the importance of avoiding products that are created without the use of harmful toxins and other materials which are harmful to us and the environment, and since we spend so much of our time in bed, this has special importance to our babies. Therefore purchasing an mattress for your baby has many health benefits. While we will look at these, lets initially look at some possible problems with the crib mattresses that have been the standard for years. Traditional Mattresses - The Problem. Mattresses have been produced basically in an unchanged manner for years. To protect the outside of the mattress against the likely diaper spill event, these mattresses are encased with a impervious vinyl covering. The soft inner fiber used to stuff the mattress looks strangely similar to the insulation that is used to fill our home ceiling and wall cavities. Although this makes for a moisture-proof mattress and one that is comfortable, there are toxins used in the chemicals used to make the stuffing fire-proof.

This allows consumers to specify such things as mattress firmness and the type of latex used to create their individual sleep system. These are just a few benefits of buying an organic mattress. There is no better time to improve your quality of sleep than today!Manufacturers are permitted to advertise their products as "organic" as long as some of the materials used to make them have been certified organic, under strict U.S. guidelines. Organic wool is one of the most beneficial materials used in a natural mattress. It is hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. This aids in the reduction of allergens in the air. It is also naturally flame resistant and complies with the 2007 ruling, requiring that all mattresses sold in the United States be fire retardant. This fabric also helps to relieve pressure points, while you sleep, reducing the frequency in which you toss and turn. It is a natural insulator of both heat and cold, which aids in keeping your body temperature at a comfortable level.

Because of the biodegradable materials used in their construction, they decompose at a faster rate than synthetic mattresses. They are also not as damaging to recycling equipment. It is alarming to note that millions of vinyl mattresses are dumped into landfills each year, taking up much needed (shrinking) space. All organic mattresses are not 100% natural. Has your old mattress seen its better days? If so, there is no better time to consider the purchase of an organic mattress. They are available in all standard sizes including crib; twin extra long and California King. Initially, you might think that a natural mattress is out of your price range. However, it shouldnt take long for you to realize that the overall benefits that these sleep surfaces provide are well worth the extra expense. An organic mattress typically lasts two to three times longer than a conventional one. Many have a life span of more than 20 years. This fact, alone, represents a huge savings. Synthetic mattresses emit dangerous fumes, on a continuous basis, which are especially harmful to children. Organic mattresses do not present this problem.

For those living in extremely humid climates, a natural mattress offers a higher level of comfort because the wool contently absorbs moisture. This reduces the chance of waking up on damp bed linens. Some organic mattresses are made with latex foam, similar to memory foam. These are the perfect choice for light sleepers who tend to wake up easily when their sleep partner moves.

To make just one T-shirt, a quarter of a pound of pesticides are used. Thats why choosing organic makes a massive difference for our health and environment. Natural memory foam mattresses are made using organic fabrics. When selecting your mattress, make sure your mattress is organic all the way through from top, fill and back. Choose unbleached organic cotton with organic fill and organic dyes and steer clear of harsh chemically treated fabrics.

Known for their durability, they also have anti-allergy and anti-microbial characteristics. These mattresses bounce back to their original shape as soon as you get off the bed. Pressure is evenly distributed too. A viscose elastic or memory foam bed is made of polyurethane foam. It does not respond as quickly as a latex foam mattress but is excellent at relieving pressure points on the body. This foam mattress has several different densities making some harder than others. Polyurethane foam beds are petroleum based. They too come in different densities and are one of the more popular foam beds.

They make it easy to sleep or read as the bed can be raised or lowered as needed. They are also very helpful for people with medical conditions. GERD (acid reflux) patients find there is less pain sleeping in a raised position. In some situations the end of the bed raises and this can help patients who suffer from leg cramps. Most of these beds come as single beds. There are also double sized beds with the two sides independently adjustable. Some extreme adjustable beds can have up to 5 areas that can be altered. From the head to the feet and every point in between, these are considered the elite of adjustable beds. Because the mattresses are made especially to suit each bed it is best to purchase the two together.

A memory foam mattress is denser than other mattresses. Because of this, a memory foam mattress is more supportive, though it is heavier. It comes in between the comfort of a really soft mattress and the stiffness and solidness of a firm one, making it a good compromise. A memory foam mattress of good quality is able to distribute weight evenly, which is like having your weight supported by billions of springs. A memory foam mattress has cells that deform whenever weight is applied. Unlike a spring mattress, which springs always exert pressure against your bodys weight, the cells in the memory foam mattress fully compress and spread their air pressure to the adjoining cells. The pressure is then spread to more cells of the mattress, so the pressure you feel is also reduced. This is responsible for greatly reducing the pressure points. Sleeping on such a mattress significantly reduces the pressure points on your body by up to 80%, therefore leading to good blood circulation. With these particular kind of mattresses, all the tossing and turning which makes you unable to get a good night sleep is greatly reduced. With spring mattresses, there is always fiber or some type of foam that is placed over the springs, but these coils will cause a trampoline effect and tend to bend inward whenever pressure is applied and they do this without conforming to the bodys specific bumps and curves. A spring mattress acts as a shock absorber and this reduces the wear and tear of the mattress. So the fewer coils there are in the mattress, the thicker the springs get. Another thing about spring mattresses is that the foam covering the springs could shrink over time, making springs exert more effort in supporting the weight, thus making them susceptible to losing their shape or getting broken over time.

Visually it is really not too important to select a "pretty" mattress as it will be covered most of the time. Instead you want to make sure the ticking is sturdy and well made and not prone to ripping. The higher quality ticking is made of material that is knitted or woven using cotton or viscose yarn. Cheaper mattresses are made of polypropylene or polyester. The cheapest mattresses are made of stitchbond or bonded cloth. Manufacturers now make external mattress covers with special features such as anti-allergy, anti-bacterial and anti-static. They may be resistant to staining, water and fire. Amazingly enough, there are even mattresses that give off different scents conducive to a good nights sleep. Spring Mattresses. There are three basic types of spring mattresses. A continuous spring mattress is made from a single piece of wire woven into many springs. The springs are linked in a vertical pattern. The wire is soft and the coils are small. This generates more reaction from the mattress. An open coil mattress is the most common form of mattress. The springs are arranged horizontally and connected at their tops and on the bottom by a twisting wire. The rods that run around the edge of the coils add strength. A pocket spring mattress has coils that are placed in fabric coverings. Instead of working as a unit, these springs function separately. As a result movement between partners on the same bed can not be felt by the other.

The ultra-soft futon mattress is made of many layers and cushions the body really well. The Fusion Velotec futon mattress is a great example of one that is ultra-soft. This mattress has a 6 inch foam core and has a number of foam layers that create the ultra-soft feeling. The soft futon mattresses do not have as much cushion, but are still very soft with lots of layers and soft foam. If you sit on these, you will definitely sink a bit lower. Examples of the soft futon mattress include the Luxury Futon Mattress and the Quasar Futon Mattress.
