Organic Crib Mattress Review {The Natural Bed Store}

Providing your baby with a safe sleep surface is by far one of the best things you can do for them. There are so many toxic chemicals in mattresses including petroleum derived foams and flame retardants. That is why you don't want to go cheap on a crib mattress! Read more about the toxic chemicals in crib mattresses.
TheNaturalBedStore.com has some wonderful non-toxic crib mattresses. They use material like organic cotton, organic wool and natural latex. They offer two different crib mattresses. We have been testing out their Acorn Innerspring Organic Crib Mattress for the past several months. I must say Vallon (now 9 months) has the best mattress in the house!

The Dangers of Lead Paint {Our Story}

Lead dust may be lingering in your home or apartment if it was built before 1978. Lead is highly toxic, especially to pregnant woman and children. It only takes a pinch of lead dust to cause problems.

The reason I am discussing this is because we just recently discovered lead paint in a few of the window sills of our apartment, including the two windows in our children’s room. The home we live in was built in the 1940’s. Red flags right there! Sadly we didn’t know much about this topic until recently. We noticed the windows were chipping badly. When we looked into it some more, we found we could get an at home lead test kit. I want to thank Tamara Rubin, the director and producer of MISLEAD: America's Secret Epidemic, a documentary about lead poisoning. She was kind enough to send us a reliable testing kit. When the results came back positive we called the health department and it took us on quite a journey…
