As most of you know by now, my husband and I are trying to grow our family this year. With my husband serving in the military, we’re trying our best to prepare ahead of time to avoid cramming and any unpredictable circumstances. That’s the best way we can go about on things, given that our lifestyle is quite unpredictable.
One thing I know for sure (which doesn’t require research), the safety and comfort of babies are the number one concern and priority of parents. From the foods they eat up to the things they use, the majority of parents would look at everything with a conspicuous eye. Between my husband and I, we’ve agreed that we will try to use organic, non-toxic and made from natural products.
And because of infant’s super sensitive skin, it’s also a must for every parent to thoroughly check the clothes they wear, the mattress they sleep on and even the changing pad they use. This way, they can guarantee to avoid irritation and other skin issues of their little ones.
Throughout my research, I have stumbled quite a few products and brands that peeked my interest. I have sent out my questions and concerns to find out what product will suit our growing family’s needs. From there, a collaboration with Brentwood Home materialized so I can share my honest review of their products. They are a California-based company that makes mattresses, beddings and other baby items. Brentwood Home sent me two eco-friendly items – the Poppy 2-Stage Crib Mattress and Sweetpea Changing Pad. Check out my thoughts and opinion below …
Poppy 2-Stage Crib Mattress
I really like this crib mattress a lot, and there are numerous reasons why. First things first, it’s made with hypoallergenic, anti-static and anti-microbial materials. It’s also free of chemical fire retardants. To top that, it saves parents money because it’s a 2-in-1 product! This crib mattress has two different layers – one side is firm for babies, and the other side is softer for toddlers. Parents can simply flip it over when their baby reaches toddler years. If that’s not enough to get hyped, the cover is waterproof, and it’s so easy to clean too! There’s no doubt, it’s a product that would grow into anyone’s home right away.
Sweetpea Changing Pad
This changing pad is quite amazing. It’s specifically designed to contour to the baby’s body to keep them comfortable and avoid or minimize unnecessary movements. It also has a bubble quilt cover that can surely keep the babies busy grasping and exploring the surface of the pad with their cute little fingers. Just like their baby-friendly mattress, the Sweetpea changing pad is also free from harmful chemicals and very easy to clean too!
To add to all that goodness, the creators of Brentwood Home are firm believers that all home products must be safe for pets and humans. They also meet and exceed the strict safety standards and quality compliance of the state of California. Based on everything that I have shared on this post, you can probably guess by now that I am highly recommending these products. Let me know if you have any questions!
