Green nursery:

There’s a lot of buzz about eco-friendly, non-toxic nurseries these days. All this information can be helpful but a little overwhelming, so we’re here to sort through the details and focus on the most important elements that will impact your baby’s health.

Your little one will be spending hundreds of hours in their nursery, so it’s important to pay attention to the potentially harmful chemicals that off-gas into the space. Most importantly, pay attention to the following three elements.

1.  Paint

Choose zero or paint with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  Added bonus: the just-painted smell is practically non-existent!

2. Crib

Choose a crib with non-toxic finishes and that meets the highest regulations for formaldehyde emissions. Most cribs manufactured in Europe, north America or Australia will meet this standard.

3. Mattress

This might be the most important purchase of all. Standard crib mattresses often contain harmful chemicals and fire retardants. Look for mattresses that are made of natural latex, organic wool, or organic cotton.

4.  Windows

Avoid roller shades made of PVC and avoid installing new wall-to-wall carpet (the adhesives can be very strong). Opt for hardwood floors instead. Wherever possible choose natural organic fabrics such as cotton, linen, and wool rather than synthetics. And, don’t forget to open a window! Fresh air will help prevent any harmful chemicals from building up in your home.
