Not so long ago there was a survey of baby mattresses in the USA which looked at VOCs in foam crib mattresses and it was pretty shocking.
As you try to get to the bottom of the ‘what cot mattresses should I go for?’ conundrum, you may well be tempted by the organic and wool argument. I mean, it all sounds so very nice and natural and that must be good, right?
Buying the right mattress for your baby is actually much more important than deciding which cot you are going for. It is the mattress surface that your baby will lie on for more than half their day that should take priority rather than the design and style of the cot or crib. I would always recommend that you spend more money on a good healthy baby mattress rather than the cot.
