Organic mattresses have been around for more than 60 years now. While the term ‘organic’ definitely gives you a ‘go-green’ vibe, it should be noted that not all organic mattresses are equally natural. There are many key points that need to be understood before you invest in an organic mattress. How Are Organic Mattresses Produced? A 100 percent organic mattress means the cotton, wool, and latex used in it were not processed with any chemicals during production and were not grown or produced using pesticides.

You may not often think about your spine while you lie in bed, but your sleep posture is a critical factor in whether or not you experience back pain in the morning. Certain sleep positions can prevent the stress that can harm a sensitive back, so when it’s time to turn in for the night, try to sleep in these positions if you can.

The pillow at your knees is intended to maintain the natural curve of your lower back as you sleep.

Look for mattresses with a fine outer cover made from 100 percent certified organic cotton. This cotton cover should be backed by a flame resistant wool layer.
When your child is happy and healthy during the daytime yet sneezes, sniffles and coughs while asleep in his or her crib at night and for naps, allergies may be to blame. An organic mattress with a protective hypoallergenic lining may help to lessen your child's allergy symptoms. Understanding the variety of ways in which an organic baby mattress can help your child will assist you in determining if this type of bedding would be right for your baby. Causes of Bed Allergies The most common cause of allergies related to sleep and nap times is dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic critters that live anywhere that dust accumulates. Because babies spend so much time sleeping, they are exposed to all of the dust that settles on their mattress, as well as those that land on curtains, blinds, carpeting and furniture in their bedrooms.
