You’ll see on our product pages that we say our mattresses and accessories have a safer design with no flame retardants - but do you know why? Flame retardants seem to be a pretty good idea, since obviously no one wants their crib mattress or baby product to be flammable! But the truth is that as long as baby’s things aren’t made with highly flammable materials, there’s really no need for flame retardants to be added. Flame retardants are found in many products, from baby mattresses and car seats to your adult mattresses, couches, electronics, and insulation material. Unfortunately, research is showing that chronic exposure to flame retardant chemicals can lead to many health hazards including endocrine disruption, cognitive delays, and decreased fertility. Babies are at particular risk since their bodies are still developing. In fact, a study by the Environmental Working Group and Duke University found higher concentrations of flame retardant chemicals in children than adults. It’s increasingly important to avoid flame retardant chemicals in home products, especially products that your baby or child is in frequent contact with.
