We here at Munchie Mug strive to find the absolute best products for the precious little ones in our families.
We look for products that are non-toxic, made in the USA whenever possible, and of course function brilliantly.
Our resident green mom Kathleen has done countless hours of research to bring you her must have product recommendation list.
Mattresses & Bedding
Your child is going to spend more than half the day sleeping on their mattress in all likelihood. You want to make a non-toxic choice here and there are some good options. And keep in mind that all these companies are making products from bassinet to king size if you are looking to update your own bedding as well.
We love all that Naturepedic has to offer. Their products are proudly made in the USA, mostly organic and they have eliminated the need for harmful flame retardants in mattresses through the use of superior materials. They have a full line of organic mattresses starting at bassinet size as well as organic pillows, super soft organic sheets, organic and wool mattress protectors, organic changing pads and so much more.
Lifekind is another great option when looking for nontoxic mattresses and bedding. All their items are crafted in their eco-factory in Northern California and I have yet to see one that is not organic. They have a variety of crib mattresses, oval bassinet mattresses, pillows, sheets and much more. They're prices are quite a bit higher than Naturepedic but they offer a wider range of mattress options.
Holy Lamb Organics
My final recommendation for bedding is Holy Lamb Organics. This company is making the most beautiful and comfortable organic wool and cotton bedding right here in America. Take some time to educate yourself about all the health benefits wool can bring to your sleep and you will want to add some pieces to your collection. Their product line features a changing pad, nursing pillow, crib moisture barrier mattress protector, soft mattress toppers, wool pillows and amazingly cozy wool and organic cotton comforters. We have the perfect comfort wool comforter on my toddlers bed and it is a dream to sleep under year round. Truly keeps your body temperature just right.
