I'm ready to transition my almost-two-year-old to his own bed. He's been doing a combo of being on the floor on a crib mattress, and also sleeping with us. I'd like to get him a twin bed because I know that when I nurse him back to sleep, there's the possibility of my falling asleep in the bed with him, and this is becoming hilariously inconvenient and scrunched for the two of us to be on a crib mattress.
But... the bed situation in this country is such a mess! I am really concerned about fire retardant in mattresses, but am horrified at the exorbitant price range for organic/latex twin beds. I thought of a used twin mattress that has done some off-gassing, but I know there will still be fire retardant in there, along with other plastics and toxic chemicals.
I'm curious what others have decided on? With concerns about health/chemicals, etc, of course we have to pick our battles as we can't be concerned with all of it, but this feels like a big one to me... my boy will spend 12 hours a night on this thing.
If you were also in this situation, what did you find in your research/ search? And what did you decide on?
