What could harm a sleeping baby?
Volatile organic chemicals, or VOCs, are common, dangerous--and avoidable. University of Texas environmental engineers
tested 20 different crib mattresses from 10 manufacturers, and
identified more than 30 off-gassing VOCs. Among them were phenol
(corrosive to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract), neodecanoic acid
(a paint drier and cement additive), and lenalool (a synthetic fragrance
and insecticide). The most abundant was limonene, a chemical solvent
used to strip paint, dissolve grease, and make cleaning products smell
Why is it harmful?
Not only are crib mattresses a significant source of chemical
exposure in an infant’s environment, the researchers noted, but babies
are much more vulnerable to VOCs, because they breathe in a much greater
volume of air per body weight. Babies take in 10 times the chemical
exposure that adults do.
Older crib mattresses off-gas less than new ones, but the researchers noted that these present another hazard—chemical flame retardants,
which are associated with autism, ADHD, cancer and obesity. Escaping
from mattresses and foam-filled furniture, they constantly accumulate in
house dust. And because babies and toddlers ingest dust at a rate 5 times higher than adults do—second-hand mattresses, although a frugal choice, may not be the wisest one
What is the solution?
Tuck in your baby on a natural crib mattress. The Savvy Baby organic crib mattress
is made from natural, certified organic materials—not cleaning
chemicals. This crib mattress is safe, healthful, and supportive, and
well worth handing down.
