Mattress Pad


Posted by kevvyg on Friday, March 16, 2012
For a couple of years we have been bouncing around the idea of having a memory foam mattress pad. Many people really like memory foam, and dust mite allergy sufferers find it to be an ideal bedding material.

However, memory foam can be expensive, particularly if you are looking at beds. Alternatively, a memory foam mattress pad or topper can much more affordable and provide at least some of the characteristics that make this type of product so popular.

Allergy Armor Memory Foam Mattress PadOur new mattress toppers are two inches thick and come in Twin, Queen, and King sizes. We know that yellow might not be your favorite color (even for something that you cover with a fitted sheet, flat sheet and comforter, so we are currently in the process of sewing covers for them. Even if you purchase now, the soft stretchy covers will soon be available for purchase separately. And regardless of appearance, they are SOFT!

Like quality memory foam, they supple yet supportive. They conform to your body without creating pressure points, which can lead to soreness and stiffness after a night's sleep.

I have a two inch down mattress pad, and feathers are a CONSTANT source of irritation. To combat feathers poking me while I sleep, I've resorted to using two fitted sheets. Unfortunately, this extra layer of fabric being stretched across the bed actually stiffens the feel of the mattress. The Allergy Armor memory foam mattress topper is the perfect solution to that problem!

Memory foam is dust mite resistant, and a hypoallergenic style of bedding material. For many allergy sufferers, it's a great alternative to traditional bedding that makes a ready home for dust mites and dust mite waste.

Having tested one, I recommend you unpack it and allow it to air out for a day. After twenty-four hours, not only does any foam scent dissipate, but more importantly, the topper expands out to its full two-inch depth.

So as a less expensive alternative to a memory foam mattress or to down toppers, the Allergy Armor Mattress Topper is an excellent choice. Try it today, and don't forget to check out our Memory Foam Pillow.

It wouldn't be that shocking if you discovered the couch you're sitting on was manufactured with 'suspect chemicals'. Sure, formaldehyde and flame retardants are common carcinogens we have grown to reluctantly accept into our homes as the trade-off for inexpensive, and even luxury, home furnishings. What if you were to discover these types of toxic chemicals were found in your newborn baby's crib mattress?

What had us raising our eyebrows was a recent report from the Washington Post stating that 72% of crib mattresses use suspect chemicals, some of which are not detailed by the manufacturer. To make matters worse, we've been told by pediatricians for years to limit our crib bedding and blankets, in prevention of SIDS and suffocation. Meanwhile, with little barriers in place, our babies are breathing in another type of danger, toxic chemicals.

Moonlight Slumber MattressesOne way to prevent your newborn from chemical and toxin exposure is by doing a little research before you start decorating the nursery. As far as safety and health is concerned, Moonlight Slumber manufactures some of the best baby bedding and mattresses we've found. As seen on Good Morning America, these mattresses are PVC/Vinyl free, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and are made with earth-friendly materials. We offer both foam and cotton Moonlight Slumber mattresses as well as organic cotton baby blankets.

Protecting your child from the over-exposure of harmful chemicals is not an easy task, but by starting before the baby arrives you can not only begin creating good habits for yourself but start your newborn off on the right foot.
