Well our mattress is 11 years old so we're ready for an upgrade. I'm thinking of going to king since our almost 16 month-old is only getting bigger. Mattress shopping is totally overwhelming and ready about how toxic conventional mattresses are is quite upsetting! Does anyone have any mattress brands to recommend? Ideally I'm looking to spend 1500$ or less. I notice that IKEA has a pretty affordable model - http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/50180664/
Thanks in advance!
We also have a king futon mattress that is significantly cheaper than spring mattresses and we like it so far.

We bought our mattress from Ikea about 4 months ago, and we love it. We got the Sultan Edsele, which is a combo of natural and man-made latex (per my research, a good thing for the longevity of a latex mattress), and is encased in cotton and wool. It is flippable and rotatable, meaning both the top and bottom are usable, and head to foot flippable too; not all mattresses have this ability, so you want to check thoroughly, because and un-flippable mattress is going to last for a much shorter time than one that's flippable. I don't know about the toxicity info, but I've read around while researching mattresses, and it generally sounded safer than other latex mattresses.
we got a cal king in my dd first year. it is 8", made of natural latex (or some part of it is). I can't remember all details. but amazingly comfortable (we use it on the floor). overstock. 500$ though probably more expensive now. worth checking out.

I checked the website and it would be around $1100 for a king.
They are non-toxic. And soooo comfortable! I highly recommend. Had ours for 2 years now and love it.
We have the same mattress, with a slatted platform underneath it and it all fit together in our Malm bed frame. Love it! It's very low to the ground and affordable. I like it so much better than sleeping with the mattress on the ground.
