3 of the Best Non-Toxic Kids Beds
According to WebMD, babies need 12-15 hours of sleep and kids need 8 to 12 hours of sleep. That's a lot of time spent on a mattress! So what are they breathing in those 33 to 63 percent of their days?
The answer depends on what's in your kids' beds and mattresses. Many popular memory foam mattresses contain polyurethane as the main ingredient. Polyurethane is mixed with other substances like formaldehyde and polyvinyl chloride in some memory foam-making processes.
If your child's mattress is off-gassing certain toxins, they could be breathing harmful air while they sleep. Thankfully, you can find a comfortable organic mattress for every stage of childhood. Keep reading to discover the best non-toxic kids beds.
