Mattresses without latex foam - safe healthy sleep for babies

Sarah GillmorDec 7, 20172 4541 vote +1 rating

When you consider that a baby spends 12 to 14 hours a day sleeping, it’s a wonder that the use of latex in crib mattresses hasn’t been restricted. Here’s a brief summary of what the experts have to say:

A study, one of many, conducted on over 1,000 health care workers found that nearly 22% had symptoms related to wearing latex gloves. Most of the problems were skin related, but some had asthma and cold symptoms like sneezing, itchy eyes, nose, ears, and throat, runny noses, nasal congestion, or worse. Some reactions have been so severe that health care workers have had to change professions, and some have been fatal.

Mattresses without latex foamMore than 10 years ago (in September, 1997), the FDA issued a ruling stating that the labeling of medical devices containing natural rubber latex (if the device is likely to come in contact with humans) must state, in bold print: “Caution: This Product Contains Natural Rubber Latex Which May Cause Allergic Reactions.” At the same time, they also said those products could not be labeled as “hypoallergenic.”

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, an estimated 10% of health care workers are sensitive to latex – although, as above, some studies indicate that number could be more than double. The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology calls latex allergy a serious health risk. Find out more about latex allergy on their site.

Organic Mattresses for Kids:

When you are choosing a bed for your child, you want a healthier, more comfortable place for them to sleep. Our organic mattresses are made without questionable chemicals, giving you peace of mind and giving your child safer, quality sleep.

Designed with kids in mind, some of the main American manufacturers line of organic kids mattresses features a comfortable medium-firm support and quality materials throughout. From luxuriously quilted organic cotton fabric to waterproof and dust-mite proof fabric, for example, Naturepedic has you covered. Their innovative construction also passes all Federal and State flammability standards without the use of any fire retardant chemicals or flame retardant barriers. Mattress company use 6 gauge border wire for heavy duty edge support and long lasting durability, and stand behind their quality workmanship with a decades of warranty.

Is there any reason to think the risk may be less for babies? Hardly; a body still in development is even more susceptible than when fully grown.

Unless you’re going to test a baby for latex allergy, which, even if you wanted to, is a little hard to do before the baby is put into his crib for the first time, you don’t know whether your baby is going to react to it or not. Nor is there any way to know if a sensitivity will develop over time – also a common occurrence.

At Naturepedic, most certified and awarded organic mattress manufacturer, they make the crib mattresses without latex foam. And the Company also don’t use any materials like coir (crushed coconut husks) that traditionally require a significant amount of latex to mold and hold it in a form like a mattress. If you’re looking for something 100% latex-free, you’ve found it.

    Five stars hands down! I purchased the king size "Loom & Leaf" mattress, with frame, for my son and daughter one year ago. They consider it as the best gift ever. They received the bed frame and mattress on Saturday and for the entire Sunday they stayed in their new bed. They both just love it! The mattress has been delivered within one week from the purchase. Amazing! Now, we are thinking to buy the same mattress for ourselves. Super price, super product, and exceptional service. Thanks for Loom&Leaf, they're great! heart_eyes
