Honestly, searching for an inexpensive organic mattress is pretty daunting. There's this recommendation from Young House Love, but the twin version is $1,639. Um, cannot afford that for a child's bed!
There's a local place in Austin that offers organic options, but their price tags are faint-inducing, too.
There's something like this from Wal-Mart (I hate to promote Wal-Mart!), but it's hard to tell whether it's actually "eco" or whether they just slapped the label on it.
And all this mattress talk is making me wonder whether we should get a full-size for Henry, so that we can all read stories together before bed (parents + two kids). And will our kids share a room? If yes, will we do bunk beds (like this cheapo twin on top of a full)? If we don't do bunk beds, then we'll probably want two twin beds for space reasons.
I don't mean to turn a small molehill of a decision into a mountain; it's just that I want to have a vision for the future, so that the purchases we make now can line up with it. Otherwise, we'll end up wasting more money and having a greater environmental impact by having to replace things.
