Reader Meredith A. kindly pointed out to me that while I told you that we ordered the Pure Eco from My Green Mattress, I never reported on how it worked for us. We ordered the mattress because it was the most affordable of the eco options I could find (although if you know of another, I would love to hear about it).
The first thing I did when the mattress arrived (shipping was big bucks, but still brought us in under any other model I could find) was sniff it. I am big on my nose letting me know if something is full of chemicals or not. The less I use chemicals, the more attuned my shnoz gets when they are around. The mattress smelled like it had been in a warehouse for a while, but not at all like chemicals. I let it sit in the sun for a couple hours and even that smell was gone.
- Organic cotton quilted fabric
- Natural wool
- Organic cotton batting
- Yarn insulator pad
- Medium-firm innerspring
It has been smooth sleeping ever since. My son loves the mattress and we have noticed a big decrease in the night time coughing. Whether that's from pulling up the carpet or the eco-mattress, I don't know. But I will take it!
P.S. A word on product review
