Healthy Nursery Tips

This is the time of year when many of us make resolutions with the hope that the upcoming year will be the best yet. Health is always a popular resolution; some people want to improve their lifestyles through diet and exercise, and this year we’re resolving to help make nurseries a little healthier for our teeny tiny clients. From cleaning products to crib mattresses, here are some of our top picks for a healthy nursery.

We’ve come to really love The Honest Company’s line of products. From non-toxic cleaning supplies to natural baby care essentials, we know these products will help us ensure that baby comes home to a healthy nursery.

When organic crib mattresses became all the rage several years ago, we were skeptical about whether or not they were really worth the price. Over a hundred nurseries later, we can definitively say that we are sold. These mattresses go above and beyond the call of duty by giving baby a natural, comfortable and non-allergenic place to sleep. We highly recommend a good organic mattress for every nursery and children’s room we design.

This powerful little air purifier is just the right size for a nursery, and what could be healthier for little lungs than clean air? We’ve already ordered a few of these air purifiers to have on hand for clients who want to want to create a healthy nursery!

Finally, infants and small children spend a lot of time on the floor, so this is another area really worth considering. For a healthy nursery, we try to select a rug made from clean, natural fibers that are non-toxic without sacrificing the cute factor. Here are some great options we recently recommended to a client.
