I confess, I like to co-sleep + so do my 3 kids. Call me an attached parent, or maybe just trying to get by on survival mode. Probably a little of both. My older two kids sleep in their beds most nights. But, I have fallen asleep in their beds, many nights, too. Of the 4 beds in our house our Organic Crib Mattress by Denver Mattress is by far the most comfortable bed to sleep in. I'm sharing my confessions of a co-sleeping mom + why an organic mattress is important to me with Denver Mattress.
Honestly, my youngest, Bridger, never slept a night in his crib his first year of life. When I tried, he cried + I just gave up. We were all happier peacefully sleeping in the same room. He spent his first year of life in our bedroom. I realize there are lots of factors that go into infant + children's sleep. But, I started trying to get Bridger to sleep in his crib once we got our new Organic Denver Mattress Crib Mattress + Bridger really does sleep like a baby on it!
I've slept on this mattress on the floor in my older two boy's bunk bed + I crashed right away! It is honestly so comfortable. And, I really value organic materials so close to my children all night. Healthy sleep is an area of our health that we shouldn't ignore. Did you know that non-organic mattresses have chemicals that babies + children will breathe in all night?
Confessions of a Co-Sleeping Mom:
I nurse my babies to sleep.
I've fallen asleep in my kid's car beds many nights.
I've slept in my kid's bunk bed.
I love a sleeping baby in my arms.
Sometimes, I still rock my 4 + 6 year olds to sleep.
Sometimes, all 5 of us squeeze into a Queen bed.
I'm always trying to educate myself on ways to create a healthier environment for my kids. Here are some studies to help you learn more about why an organic mattress is a healthy choice for your child:
