What would you do?
We just bought a king size mattress because we cosleep and wanted to upgrade from our queen. That one was a foam mattress - probably high in toxins.
We bought the Europa brand. I've called the company and talked to the reps. It is supposedly pretty green - chemical free flame retardant (silk and bamboo fiber), a decent amount of soy foam, natural latex, blah blah blah. It has been airing out in our room since Monday with the window open, fan on and door closed. It really doesn't smell at all. I know it still has glue and other chemicals, I'm sure, but it was the best we could do on our current budget.
Anyway, I've been reading more on the internet because I become OCD about things. I've read that even though a manufacturer claims to use fibers to meet the flammability laws, it just isn't possible. That there must be some chemical mixed in with the fibers. The company claims there are no flame retardant chemicals, but now I'm finding that hard to believe, especially because by law they don't have to disclose exactly what they use. I've read so many conflicting things (as always) that my mind is going to explode.
Julia sleeps with us and now I'm paranoid about her sleeping on this new mattress because maybe it isn't as safe as they claim.
Any advice so that I can stop obsessing?
