Naturepedic Layer Swap Program: Switch Mattress Comfort

Goldilocks didn’t have much time to pick a bed. While she was able to try out different mattress comfort levels, she quickly had to pick the one that was “just right” after lying on them once. After a few days, Goldilocks easily could have realized that it wasn’t the right mattress for her. We realize that a few minutes isn’t enough time to pick the best mattress for the next 10 to 20 years of your life.

How to Breathe Easier at Home

Spring has arrived, so many of us are now flocking outdoors as much as possible. Even though you may be limiting your time indoors, don’t forget to keep the air in your home as clean as possible. In honor of May being Clean Air Month, we challenge you to try at least one of these tips to purify the air in your home. 1. Use Natural Cleaning Products While trying to clean all the dust and dander in your home, don’t add other irritants. Many conventional cleaning products contain chemicals that can irritate, so try switching to something more natural, such as vinegar, lemon juice or mild soap and water. We share other natural cleaning ideas on our blog as well. Your home will still be clean, and you can breathe easy. 2. Reduce Your Heat/Air Conditioning Usage in Your Home It’s warming up, so you no longer have to crank up the heat and keep the windows locked up.[…]

Letter to Sleep Deprived Moms

Hi, Sleepy Mom. How are you? It’s probably been a while since someone has asked you that, right? Not just in passing but in a sincere way—looking you in the eyes and wanting a real answer. Because let’s be honest, being a mom entails a lot of behind the scenes work that doesn’t always get noticed. You wake up early, get everyone ready for the day, drop them off, work, clean, pick them up, make dinner, get everyone ready for bed, and go to sleep later than you wanted. And you wake up and do it all again the next day. And the day after. Because motherhood isn’t a 9-5 job. It’s a lifetime job that rarely allows a personal day and requires you to play so many different roles—teacher, caregiver, cheerleader, counselor, chef, driver, and the list goes on and on. Honestly, it’s exhausting just typing that. So, how are you? Are you doing OK? Have you been taking[…]
