Being a parent brings with it countless choices and decisions for our children to ensure all of their health and physical requirements are met. One of the most important choices you’ll have to make during the early phases of your child’s life? Choosing the best kids beds mattress to suit your growing child’s sleeping needs from birth right on through to adulthood.
Mattress Toxicity: An Important Consideration In The Purchasing Process
Yes, finding the right mattress proves imperative to ensure your child gets the sleep he or she needs as they grow and thrive. However, the wrong bedding choice can also impose potentially significant health issues in the form of off-gassing. Off-gassing, a form of mattress toxicity, is the release of gas that has been immersed, absorbed or trapped into the mattress materials during its production. Over time, the mattress releases these potentially toxic fumes and materials into its environment and potentially causing serious issues.
Know How To Avoid Potentially Harmful Bedding For Your Child
Worried that you may inadvertently choose a mattress with off-gassing potential for your little one? You’re not alone. However, understanding a few crucial tips when beginning the purchasing process can ensure you buy the perfect bedding solution for your child. When doing your mattress research, always consider:
•Ask tough questions: The retail mattress industry is not forthcoming about the toxins laced in their mattress materials. Ask specific questions about the chemicals used in the production of the materials–especially the fire blockers (which are required by law but can be made with organic, safe materials).
•Online options: With so many bedding warehouses offering dated and worn models, many consumers are choosing to a buy a mattress online to ensure that they have access to the very latest innovations for their children.
•Extended warranties: Kids beds mattresses can prove a significant commitment, especially for children who will be sleeping most of their formative years on the bedding you select; always look for extended product warranties to ensure you and your child will be completely satisfied with your final choice.
