Ecobaby Sleigh Bed Untreated Wool Outer Natural Rubber Infant Mattress 21.5 x 31:
How is This Mattress Better?
Wonderful certified organically processed EcoWool Puddle Pad outer. Ecobaby's Organic line of unique organic infant mattresses in every size imaginable for over 18 years. Available in any size you need.
To ensure purity, the natural latex is tested to 100 parts per billion for various VOCs/chemicals including Toluene and Benzene and the wool is tested to 1 part per million for various heavy metals including Mercury and Cadmium. No talalay in ours! Ask any other manufacturer to see their test results testing for dimethyl sulfate and petroleum down to .001 ppm in writing.
Generally, infant mattresses in stores are composed of a foam core with vinyl covering. Studies have shown that mice on this kind of mattress have a reduction of 26% of their airflow. We believe this could be a major factor in SIDS. Many studies have confirmed the link between SIDS and chemicals but the JPMA (crib industry) is very large and keeps promoting cheap synthetic mattresses.
Our new style mattress replaces that 1" mattress that probably came with your baby's cradle, sleeper, etc. Unhealthy inner chemically ridden synthetic foam is replaced with natural rubber inner (using the Dunlop method), completely protected by certified organically processed, felted wool. The untreated wool fabric provides natural flame-retardancy, water-resistance, bacterial resistance and dust mite control.
No added chemicals, plastics, polyfibers... None of that Junk in our wool! Easily clean the woo with gentle soap and water if soiled with anything other than urine. Otherwise just air dry and bacteria on wool will die within an hour.
Made in USA of course.
What Else Do I Need?
This Sleigh Bed, all natural latex extra firm infant mattress features an organically processed wool outer, therefore there is no need for a seperate wool puddle pad. It's already there! YOU DO STILL NEED A COTTON PAD ON TOP OF THE WOOL....(under the fitted sheet)!!
Remember, it takes a chemical to waterPROOF something, which is why our wool is NOT waterPROOF but rather very moisture resistant. This is why you must use a cotton pad on top of the wool.
Meets all CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) guideline.
NOTE: Every mattress needs to be supported. is a MUST that you maintain the same support that came with your sleeping system....otherwise, it would become a hammock and that of course would be more than dangerous! About 1/2 of our customers cut the old vinyl type mattress that came with their sleeping system off of the support board/bars that came with their sleeping system and put our mattress down in place of the old mattress (keeping the support board/s in place). The other 1/2 remove the original support board, go to Lowes and have UNTREATED wood cut, lay it down and put our mattress on top.
Approximately 21.5 x 31By the way, unlike what is reported at the end of this newscast, THERE IS a manufacturer (the manufacturer of this mattress), who have the materials from which their mattresses are made 3rd party tested for various VOCs/chemicals. The Ecobaby USA and PureRest mattresses sold in our store meet and/or exceed the fire retardancy law WITHOUT adding chemicals after testing, and WITHOUT a prescription by using their organic, 3rd party tested (including arsenic & antinomy), organically processed wool or certified organic wool.
