I'm trying to figure out if this mattress is safe or at least less toxic than most conventional mattresses.  It's a wool wrapped futon, which the seller says is the only type of flame retardant used, but it says it has two layers of foam inside wrapped in cotton batting.  Is foam itself bad for some reason?

It sounds good to me, though it's hard to know for sure with eBay.  

 

You might try asking also in The Family Bed and Nighttime Parenting.  We talk about mattresses a lot and there are a lot of knowledgeable parents in there. :)
