Furniture and Decor Safety: How to Provide a Safe Environment for Your Baby

It’s one thing to choose products for your little one’s nursery because they are aesthetically appealing, but it’s another to ensure that the products are also safe. When browsing through catalogues and shopping for your baby’s nursery consider how the direct environment will influence your child.

According to M​ommy Greenest,​ a recent study revealed that the frightening levels of chemical based indoor air pollution were directly linked with new baby decor, specifically the furniture, mattress and paint.

When it comes to furniture, you would ideally want to invest in items that are made from unfinished solid wood. However, woods last and look better when treated with safe, water­-based, non­toxic, lead free oils/waxes/paints/sealers. Mattresses for your little one could also pose a risk. It was documented that ​flame retardants​ have been linked to neurological problems, and these items are often added to the foam components of furniture or mattresses.

Take ‘crib’ notes when it comes to your baby’s sleeping environment. It’s important that these items meet the government safety standards; slats should be narrow enough so that your baby can’t get her head stuck, the corner posts shouldn’t have decorated knobs or elements that hook onto your baby’s clothes or cause serious injuries, the list goes on.

Luckily, Clever Little Monkey is just as focused on your baby’s health and safety as you are. That’s why we have a range of safe furniture and decor available for your little one’s nursery:

Bambu Convertible Eco ­Cot

This product is ideal to ensure the health and safety of your baby. This eco friendly cot is made from renewable bamboo, treated with natural non VOC oil and vegetable based wax which releases no harmful chemicals into the baby’s environment. Bambu is hand­crafted from the highest quality bamboo from the foothills of the Chinese mountains.

We have two award winning mattresses that we recommend to our customers for the safest sleep for your baby.

All Natural: Latex Cot Mattress

For anyone concerned about allergies or asthma a latex mattress is nature’s most natural sleep surface. A latex baby mattress is firm enough to provide optimal body support, yet soft enough for comfort. Latex has a natural elasticity and as a result holds its shape well. As latex is a natural product, it has none of the nasty fumes or harmful chemicals that are commonly found in synthetic or plastic products.

Breathable: Purflo Cot Mattress

The PurFlo mattress replaces the conventional foam mattress with a fully breathable, fully washable, foam free mattress. It provides a genuine dust mite free environment for babies, also helping to prevent the harmful buildup of allergens that are linked to Asthma and Eczema.

PurFlo SleepSac

This anti­allergenic, anti­bacterial sleeping bag is ideal for moms and babies on the go. With its 100% Bamboo lining, the fabric is 60% more absorbent than cotton and it even features integrated scratch mitts to keep hands warm and protect against scratching. The SleepSac also has a full zip open front for easy access during night time nappy changing.
