7 green crib mattresses that are safe for your baby

The anticipation of a new baby is a beautiful thing. Shopping for a baby can be exciting, and at the same time stressful. There is a lot to think about, including food, baby proofing materials, diapers, chairs, clothing, and so much more.

The mattress on which your baby sleeps is extremely important. There are problems with conventional mattresses, as many contain toxic chemicals such as fire retardants, plasticizers, polyurethane foam, and vinyl. These chemicals can be especially dangerous for babies, as some of them are linked to developmental problems. So buying a safe and clean mattress is an important and worthwhile investment.

Let’s take a look at the top 7 green crib mattresses for healthy babies.
