Have kids with allergies? Here’s what to look for in a mattress.
As the parent of a child with allergies, you have to practise constant vigilance. It can start to feel as though you have become an expert in chemistry, scouring ingredient lists on food, shampoos, toothpaste, washing powders, and so on ad infinitum. And then, when something goes wrong, it’s time to play detective — you must forensically track down the culprit.
When it comes to the world of sleep, there are some red flags to look for in finding the best surface for kids with allergies. Unnatural and synthetic fabrics and chemicals are always a bad sign, for starters. But it’s not just sheets and washing powders that can spell trouble; some mattresses can also result in difficulties for kids with allergies.
At Eco Kids, we’ve gone out of our way to create the best mattress for kids with allergies. But you don’t just have to take our word for it. We started from first principles with our mattress, by figuring out what criteria were most important for making a best mattress for kids with allergies. Read on to see what is important in an anti-allergenic mattress, and also how we’ve managed to incorporate them into our products.
At Eco Kids, we believe that transparency is important. That’s one of the reasons we’ve put together a guide to everything you ever wanted to know about kids mattresses. Read it for yourself, and discover a world of information on mattresses for children, teens, and young adults.
Use natural fabrics whenever possible
Natural fabrics are often the best choice for kids prone to allergies — and as an additional benefit, they’re also more environmentally friendly. For those reasons, the Eco Kids mattress is covered with bamboo fabric, which sits atop a quilted layer of 100% certified natural cotton.
Your mattress should be free from unnatural chemicals
Many mattresses on the market are chock full of chemicals. They’re used for a variety of purposes, from fire retardation to simply keeping the manufacturer’s profits as high as possible with cheap glues.
Our Eco Kids mattress contains none of those harmful glues or chemicals. We use Hygroflex foam that is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, meaning that it has no toxic chemical substances and is totally safe for direct skin contact.
Look for Sensitive Choice approval
To act with confidence as a consumer, it is vital to have the benefit of independent approval. Sensitive Choice, for example, was established by the National Asthma Council Australia in 2006. They take it as their duty to inform the public about allergy and asthma management. It’s one thing for a privately owned company to insist that their product is a good choice for children with allergies. It’s much better, however, to have impartial and trustworthy Sensitive Choice approval.
An effective sleeping surface is still important
It isn’t enough for a mattress to be good for people with allergies — it has to function as a mattress in its own right, too. If a child finds that they’re unable to get to sleep on a mattress, it doesn’t matter how accomodating the surface is for their allergies; it won’t work in the long run.
At Eco Kids, we’ve used the latest technology and resources to make the best possible mattress for kids with allergies. That means taking allergies into account, but also making a delightfully comfortable surface. We deliver the best of both worlds, receiving Sensitive Choice approval for anti-allergy materials, and Bedbuyer awards for comfort.
A returns policy that can provide peace of mind
As the parent of a child with allergies, you know that even the most highly recommended products can sometimes go awry. That’s why it is important to have a solid returns policy. That way, you can have peace of mind knowing that if the product doesn’t work out, you won’t be any worse off for having made the purchase.
Eco Kids offers a 100 Night Money Back Trial. If your child doesn’t love the Eco Kids mattress, for whatever reason, within those first 100 nights, we’ll give you your money back.
There’s no better mattress for kids with allergies than the Eco Kids mattress. Read on to find out more about kids mattresses, with our guide to everything you ever wanted to know on the subject.
