Understanding what’s in our household and everyday products can be, well, really confusing. Chances are, even when you try to read into a product’s ingredient label and do some research, your head is left spinning, hopelessly trying to decipher what any of it means.
We get it. Navigating the chemical world can feel like learning a foreign language and studying for a mid-term chemistry exam, all at once. Plus, throw in misleading company greenwashing claims, and the confusion only multiplies.
For expecting and new parents desperately trying to identify safe, healthy, trustworthy products for their little one, this is particularly frustrating. At Naturepedic, we’re happy to take on the job of being your chemical tutors, because when it comes to the health and safety of your baby, we understand there’s no room for compromise.
In their early years of life, babies will spend 10-16 hours a day sleeping, so getting an organic crib mattress you can trust is one of the most important purchases you can make. However, the unfortunate reality is that most crib mattresses on the market are made with questionable, hazardous chemicals and materials, many of which have been linked to health and developmental issues in babies. Numerous studies have consistently shown that eliminating toxic chemicals from babies' surroundings is critical for their healthy development.
