Many people are becoming aware of the dangers of toxic chemicals, which is one reason why Naturepedic crib mattresses are so popular. But there’s so much information out there, it’s sometimes hard to know how to get started on your quest to eliminate toxins from your baby’s nursery. Here are a few changes that will give you a good start.
- Change your household cleaning products to something non-toxic. See our blog Cleaning Products for the Non-Toxic Nursery for more info.
- Make sure the paints, carpets and other materials in the room won’t off-gass. See our post An Organic Crib Mattress is Great – But What About the Nursery Walls and Floors for exact details on how to do that in a day or two (or maybe three or four – but not long.)
- Filter your air. No matter how chemical-free your baby’s nursery is, there’s no way you’re going to keep the outside air where it belongs. A good filter system will help keep inside air clean.
Those few basic will give your baby a healthy environment, and a healthy start in life.
