Baby Sleep Safety: How to Choose the Best Organic Crib Mattress

There’s much to learn about organic versus non-organic, and latex fibers versus rubber or cotton. And don’t get us started about finding which companies are GOTS certified through the entire process.

As much time as we take picking out the perfect crib and adorable sheets, a safe, organic crib mattress is often an afterthought determined by cost rather than quality.

That being said, there is some unnerving data around the effects of chemicals made in traditional baby mattress production.

Here are our top picks for the best crib mattresses that meet all the criteria outlined in this guide.
