Pillows, Blankets, and Mattresses, Oh My!
Pillows, blankets, and mattresses, oh my! 🛏️
There are unfortunately so many chemicals in sleepwear and sleep gear that can actually promote and exacerbate respiratory illnesses and impact your reproductive system. (DM if you would like the citations for this)
The price of these items can be more than you budgeted for, but I find comfort in the fact that my child will be using it for 12 hours a day (at least I hope so 🙏 💤), 4,200 hours a year!
Investing in a good organic pillow that is actually the proper size is key. I like the brand @dreamtownkidsofficial . There are no flame retardants or formaldehyde and it is made with 100% organic cotton and is 100% hypo-allergenic. A great time to introduce a pillow is when you are transitioning your child to a bed. However, some children will request a pillow when they are still in the crib.
I learned from following @_doctor.g_ that mattresses have 61 chemicals present, many of which are carcinogenic.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
