Toxic Crib Mattress? Here’s a simple way to protect your baby.
According to the Toxic Gas Theory, presented through the research of Dr. James Sprott, chemical additives present in the crib mattress mix with naturally occurring molds found in the baby’s mattress. These gases could shut down the central nervous system, resulting in the cessation of breathing and heart function- SIDS. A Harlow’s Earth Crib Mattress Cover acts as a barrier between those gases and your sleeping baby.
Also we know that fire retardants are carcinogenic AND it is indisputable that PVC is a known toxin to humans and the environment (used in crib mattresses for waterproofing).
Are the toxins in a crib mattress dangerous? Yes. What can you do about it? You can protect your baby with a Harlow’s Earth Crib Mattress Cover.

GOOD FOR BABY
This screams safety! It’s whole goal is to prevent chemical off-gassing from reaching your baby.
- User-friendly: This is extremely useful at giving you peace of mind while your little one rests. We only hope that more sizes are created soon to accommodate a bassinet and pack ‘n play.
- Usefulness: It is relatively inexpensive and has the potential to protect against SIDS, allergies and possibly even autism. It is certainly cheaper than buying a 100% organic cotton mattress.
- Overall, if your baby is sleeping on a traditional mattress where fire retardants have been added and it has a PVC waterproof cover, this product is essential to your nursery.
GOOD FOR EARTH
It is made of a plastic, which means that it is created using petroleum. However the material used is food-grade LDPE, which:
- It is an efficient raw material. Per year, not even one percent of the total crude oil and natural gas is used for the global production of polyethylene.
The manufacturing of polyethylene is relatively clean and efficient: the emission of harmful substances is minimal and there is hardly any waste.
- Polyethylene is extremely suitable for recycling. It is a thermoplastic material, which means that it can be melted unlimited times and new products can be made with it.
