October is Safe Sleep Awareness Month – a full month dedicated to promoting healthy sleeping habits for newborns. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a safe sleep environment to reduce the risk of all sleep-related deaths. This includes supine back positioning, the use of a firm, flat non-inclined sleep surface, a safety approved crib with a tight fitting mattress, and avoiding other bedding or soft objects to prevent suffocation or overheating. At My Green Mattress, a family owned, certified organic, made in the USA company, we strive to provide healthy and safe sleep for your family. My Green Mattress was founded by Tim Masters, a father of 5 with the need to make a hypoallergenic and non-toxic crib mattress for his infant daughter who was suffering from severe allergies and eczema. His goal was to reduce her exposure to toxins so that she could sleep in the healthiest environment possible. The Emily Organic Crib Mattress is a two-sided nontoxic crib mattress that is handmade using a firm innerspring, GOTS certified organic cotton, GOTS certified organic wool, and GOLS certified organic coconut coir — a breathable material made from organic coconut fibers. This mattress protects your baby from the dangerous off-gassing chemicals found in flame retardants and polyurethane foams that are common in conventional crib mattresses. The Emily Organic Crib Mattress offers the perfect combination of safety, breathability and healthy support for your baby so you can rest easy knowing your baby is sleeping on a nontoxic, breathable mattress. The Emily Organic Crib Mattress comes with a risk-free 120-night sleep trial, a 10-year warranty, is made to order and ships free to your home in two weeks or less within the continental US. Members of the U.S. Military and Veterans qualify for $25 off their crib mattress order.
