Anyone have experience with or an opinion on these mattresses: http://www.anaturalhome.com/product/D000ORGCOTMAT/

I need a twin mattress for my two year old and if not this one I will probably have to get a used conventional mattress as the next best alternative (due to price).

Also, I am the opposite of fabric savvy, so what is canvas (which is what she would be sleeping on under the sheet)? Is it cotton? Do I need to email them to determine whether it is organic or is this covered already in the description? :

Thanks for any help--I want to make sure that my daughter is safe!

Have I missed something? Is it really $600 including shipping? Is that considered affordable? :

I must be really out of touch!

www.lifekind.com has organic mattresses that are waaaaay cheaper than $600 They have all their mattresses onsale right now. You will have to call them for prices because they like to discuss your mattress needs to make sure you end up with the best one for your situation. I don't own one, but want one when I can afford it. Lifekind is a reputable company.

Hmm, I got all excited and called LifeKind but they do not have anything cheaper than $600 in a twin! Their maton (half mattress, half futon) is comparable in price since their shipping is much cheaper but it doesn't beat $600 even with the sale. Unless they're giving me different prices than they're giving you : but I talked to the company's president and I feel I got accurate info!

They do look like an awesome company, and I would love to buy their mattresses . . . :

Could you have been thinking of another company? I really want to swing this mattress but even the $600 might be out of reach right now.

Ikea makes mattresses without the harmful pbde flame retardents, though they're not organic. But they're cheaper. The king we want is 600.

Mattress questions seem to come up a lot here, but not a whole lot seems to get determined except that they're really expensive. I can't really afford organic (I mean completely organic requires a dr. note, no?) but I am trying to avoid the harmful flame retardents.
