Decisions - Mattress Edition

You have CafeMom to thank for me doing this post now... I might have put it off a little longer, but one of the due date mama's brought up the wraps and got me thinking about it all over again. Probably a good thing though because this is probably one of the biggest things we have to make a decision on. Throw in the pricing and I want time to find the best deals on it for sure.

Basically I have two options on mattresses. Two that are exceptable to me anyway lol. One is going organic... The other is the wrap nini. 

I'll be honest & say I'm leaning more towards just going with an organic mattress. No chemicals = no wrapping needed. No wrapping means not having to worry about the materials the sheets and sleepers are made of.  Not worrying about them means we don't need to buy new ones lol and even if we do, any new wouldn't cost quite what the ones needed to go with the wrap would. Unfortunately the organic mattresses cost way more. Not giving up by any stretch though... 

If we go for the BebeSafe wrap we'll still need to buy a mattress... and the wrap... plus the underblanket. All sheets would need to be 100% cotton. I'm not sure what the ones we have now are (I prob should shouldn't I?). Not worrying much about the no softeners being used on baby's clothing thing because we don't do that anyway... but looking at all the numbers it looks like it adds up to about the same price as one of the mattresses would.  Definitely cheaper than some of the mattresses lol, but equal to the best ones I've seen so far.

If you're wondering why this is coming up now and not w/ Kalila... It did lol. I read about mattress wrapping before I got pg last time & wanted to look into it more, but got distracted with everything else going on... and since we planned to co-sleep (and did) we decided just to get a reg mattress. I've never liked the thing though (it really is awful) and we transitioned her way too early and I would have been much more comfortable if we'd spent more time on this decision. Even if Zavier is older when we transition, I'm sure there'll be times he's in there & I want to at least know I looked into all this more this time lol.

well I have heard that you should get a new mattress per each new baby. Something about old baby spitup and stuff that gets soaked into the baby mattress and can cause SIDS or something. Now I don't know if I believe that--but I have heard that. It could eb true I don't know. that being said, we used the same mattress for all 5

I've heard the same thing... it actually goes along with (or is similar to) the theory about the chemical fumes causing (or being one cause of) SIDS. If I remember right, the BebeSafe site mentions it along with their stuff anyway.

But... is a moot point here. Kalila's mattress is on her bed lol. We'd have to get a new one anyway.
