What do you ladies think of this? I am pregnant with our second child, and the fear of SIDS is entering my mind again. I found this info online when searching for information, and I wasnt sure what to think. If it's even a possibility, then I want to buy a mattress that does not contain these chemicals. But the one they say to get is the Naturepedic and they are like $259! Seems like alot but obviously worth it. Should I get one for our next baby? Help! Thanks!

 I have read that before but am not sure if I believe it 100%. I worry about SIDS a lot also & if we were to have another child I'd just get one of those Angel monitors. I have read up on them and they have great reviews.

I agree. I had an angel monitor with both of my babies. But mama, I know it's a fear we all have, but stay off the net. The stress is not good for the baby. But of course, do what gives you peace. :)

 I have an angel care monitor, when my dd was an infant she rolled over onto her stomach and stopped breathing face first into her mattress. The alarm went off and I was able to get her breathing. I'm not sure what causes sids, but these monitors can save your babys life. I know this is OT. But I just want everyone to know.

Thanks for the advice! I will get one of those monitors. We are gonna get a new mattress anyways, so I think I'm just gonna get the organic one just to feel better about the chemicals. That way I won't worry so much! lol
