Both my daughters were climbing out of the their crib at age 12 mos. We moved to toddler bed and then to a twin mattresses with a guard at age 3. Big kids, Healthy mattresses are important also as your child gets older, even into the teens. Whatever the age of your child, sleeping on a mattress without off gassing toxic chemicals is important. Kids still are developing and their brain and lungs are effected by the chemicals in mainstream mattresses, and bedding. Organic mattresses, Green Mattresses, that use natural fire retardants are so much more healthier than mattresses that have harsh chemical contents and toxic fire retardants ( Environmental Working Group). It can take years for these chemicals, fire retardants to off gas. Imagine years of a child breathing in chemicals. Fire retardants have been linked to serious diseases.
