I'm working down my list of purchases for baby #2 and am in search of a healthy and affordable crib mattress. I didn't really pay much attention to my crib mattress purchase the first time around. In fact I think I just chose what a friend had on her registry. This time I'm definitely way too much in the know about smells/chemicals/VOCs that leak from crib mattresses. Information overload. Alas, I am in search of a mattress that I know isn't releasing any of this stuff.
Thus far, I've found a few options: the Pure Rest Apollo 260 which is really out of my price range; the willow natural coconut palm mattress which again is a little pricy; the Colgate Eco Classica I Crib Mattress that folks complain is way too hard; and finally the LA Baby Organic Cotton 2 in 1 Mattress. I love that there are two sides to this mattress and it is affordable but it doesn't tout its natural qualities much and some say the mattress is too soft. Grrr!!
Does anyone have any recommendations?
