Rafaela Barbosa Furniture, 2018-01-04 13:17:05. The Organic Crib Mattress. Nowadays most mattress manufacturers claim to have mattress options, and for the most part, they all do. However, they mostly use slightly different outer layer and filling materials. Since there are many safe and healthy options available today, understand that you are not looking for just one option when shopping for an organic mattress. Some items you ought to look for in an organic mattress include: The use of 100% organic cotton and wool - both in the filling and the outer layer of the crib. There are not any herbicides or pesticides used on organically grown cotton crops. The fire retardants that are used in organic mattresses are organic. As we mentioned before, the chemicals that are used in traditional mattresses, to protect against fire can have serious health effects. In-crib fire barriers are required per governmental regulations. Organic fire retardants such as baking soda, hydrated silica, cellulose fiber and wool, which is a natural fire retardant, are some of the products you should look for. These are all natural alternatives that may meet the fire protection requirement of crib mattresses.

If the mattress is lumpy and the springs are too bouncy it might be time to go shopping. We also change as we age. A person who has once slept best on a soft mattress may be more suited to a harder mattress later in life, or, vice versa. Weight gain and weight loss can all effect how we react to our mattresses. A mattress might be perfect for one person but if two people start using it there could be difficulties. Studies have shown that beds can lose up to 70% of their original hardiness over 10 years. How Do I Select a Mattress?

These range from those on the softer side to those on the firmer side. The medium soft mattresses have extra foam like the soft mattresses, but has a bit more polyester to make it slightly firmer than a soft mattress. Good examples of these include the Saturn Futon Mattress, the Haley 90, and the Aries Futon Mattress. The next level up is what are characterized as medium. These include the Phoenix, the Mercury and the Pulsar mattress. Usually, these have layers of foam, but the top layer is a polyester layer making it a bit more firm. This means the mattress wont sink down a lot when you sit on it, but will still be bouncy when lying down. There is more support from these, but the mattresses are not firm. Finally, in the medium category, you have the medium firm mattress. These include the Simmons Monarch, the Galaxy Interspring, and the Cotton Coil mattresses. A lot of times, these mattresses will have an inner spring, similar to a regular bed mattress allowing the mattress to be more firm. The coils are usually surrounded by foam making these mattresses comfortable, but still firm. When the mattress does not have springs, the inner core is a lot thicker, making the mattress less plush and more firm. These medium firm mattresses are usually recommended by doctors since they are firm enough to give you more back support, but still soft enough for your body to merge into.

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.

A twin (or "single") mattress is great for day beds and bunk beds, as well as guest rooms! Many twin mattress size buyers are looking for their childrens needs - it is simply perfect for a childs bedroom. This will give the child enough room to sleep for years, maximizing bedroom space and making room for toys, a desk, a dresser and more. It will be quite some time before he or she will need a full or queen size mattress! 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.

The mattress support is usually made of wood slats that can be very flexible or tough and rigid. Wire mesh is another material used to make the support. The more rigid and cheap slats are further apart but the gap should not exceed 10cm. In addition, the wider the space between the slats, the more likely your mattress will be to wear out.

Chemicals that are used in these typical mattresses off-gas and the babies breath these gasses while they are sleeping. Phosphorus, antimony and arsenic are some of the chemicals that are used in the manufacture of the typical crib mattress. While there isnt actual proof that the use of these chemicals in these mattresses is related to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), what is known is that after chemicals were initially added to crib mattresses, the incidents of SIDS rose dramatically. While the chemicals used for the filling are bad enough, the moisture-proof vinyl covering has various potential health hazards as well. According to the FDA, the vinyl that has been used in the moisture-proof outer layer has been known to cause allergic reactions in many humans. Another issue with the moisture-proof vinyl outer layer is that this material does not breath and restricts air flow. When you consider that in conjunction with the chemicals used inside the traditional crib mattress it gets pretty scary. Even though the vinyl outer layer is moisture-proof, these chemicals can still leach through it and your baby can breath the gasses while inside the crib. The good news is that an organic crib mattress offers a safe and healthy option.

We could say that sleeping on spring beds or mattresses is comfortable until we got stung by a broken spring. Spring mattresses have been the standard for many decades but the memory foam mattresses have become even more popular to date because of the undeniable comfort as well as the overall body support that many would not believe until they have tried these out for themselves. So why do more people choose memory mattresses over the standard spring mattresses? There have been comparisons made between memory foam mattresses and spring mattresses and a lot of people could attest that they found sleeping on memory foam mattresses to be better. Lying on a spring mattress does feel nice but when it comes to body contouring as well as spinal support a spring mattress do not even comes close to what the memory foam mattress could give. When you use a spring mattress, your body conforms to it. While your weight is on the spring mattress, the springs exert a resisting force against your body. A spring mattress relies only on a varied number of springs that are pushing back against you with all of them having the same force. Since your body does not push evenly against those springs, it is impossible for you to get proper support. And because of this and the fact that you are the one who is adjusting to the spring mattresss shape, your pressure points will lead to poor blood circulation and you would probably be complaining about body pains or sore muscles or stiffness when you wake up in the morning.
