Baby Bedding and Safetyfrom: Maxx Family Life
Your baby's bedding should be carefully planned. Baby Bedding has been know to cause suffocation and there are certain safe practices you should follow when putting your baby bedding together.
Since there are also gasses emitted from some materials that are harmful, pay attention to the material label when you buy baby bedding sets as well.
There's research that indicates that soft bedding could cause suffocation as well as research on SIDS that even points to death by suffocation due to soft bedding using quilts, pillows, sheepskins, and comforters etc. It's recommended that a newborn baby have a firm mattress with fitted sheets that are tight. The firm mattress helps to keep the sheet taut.
Most mattresses contain polyurethane foam that may have been treated with a flame retardant. They also may have been covered with material treated with stain resistant chemicals. There are chemicals emitted from this material that may help cause indoor pollution. Since your baby's immune system is most affected by toxins, it's advisable to take steps to provide the safest possible bedding to protect your baby's health. By keeping certain items out of baby's crib and using safe bedding material, your baby will be healthier and safer.
What you should avoid in baby bedding or during sleep time are:
* sleeping bags
* moisture resistant mattress protectors
* under blanket made of acrylic
* stuffed toys that are like pillows
* pillow-like products
* soft surfaces
* soft mattress
Consider doing or using these things for your baby's safety and better health.
* a sleeper instead of a blanket
* place your baby on his/her back on a firm mattress
* if you use a blanket, then put your baby with his/her feet at the foot of the crib
* make the bed using pure cotton sheets and blankets
* replace your mattress with one made of natural or organic cotton
You'll do well to avoid the toxins in many common baby bedding materials and your baby will likely sleep healthier and safer. If you make use of bedding for your baby made of wool, organic cotton, all natural sheets and similar material in your baby bedding.
