I'd like to buy a twin mattress for my son; he's on the top bunk so that the mattress has to be on the slim side. I've been looking at the options on Pure-Rest (for example, http://www.purerest.com/Mattresses/Gemini-Mattresses) as well as Organic Baby, which I think maybe has the same mattress quite a bit cheaper (http://organicgrace.com/taxonomy/term/110) -- about $950 vs. $750, though it's a little hard to decipher if the mattresses are really the same.

 

Anyhow, I've been trying to decide whether we can afford such a thing, etc., as insanely expensive, of course, when I came across this non-OG alternative: http://www.sleepworks.com/mattresses/childrens. The wool involved is not organic, and the coil pockets are made out of some kind of synthetic material (FAQ from the manufacturer: http://berkeleyergo.com/faq.html) -- but it's under $450, which suddenly doesn't seem so bad at all...

 

What do y'all think? Does anyone know this particular mattress? Is this a reasonable compromise? Organic things are so nice usually, and I definitely want to minimize exposure to chemicals, but I also don't want to be hysterical about it....  Thanks in advance!

Yes the mattress we sell at Organic Grace as the Budget 4" Latex is the same as the Gemini sold by Purerest. We sell it under a different name so we can offer better pricing for mamas like yourself. It is our most popular model for kids and we have sold many to Mothering Mamas....
