It is a little bit overdue but I want to share where did Zion sleep since he was born and tell you all about our favorite bassinet from Wholesome Linen.
Today, as I’m writing this post, Zion’s turning 4.5 months old. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. When I was pregnant, I couldn’t wait for his arrival and now I just want to slow down time and enjoy every moment with him for longer. Since the beginning I knew we didn’t want to cosleep and that I wanted to have him in a bassinet. And of course, as you know me it had to be all-natural and organic, no plastic, no chemicals, etc. Why? It’s simple. Newborns sleep an average of 18 hours a day in the first 4 months of their young lives. So for us, good sleep and health go hand by hand and choosing the right place for our baby to sleep in the early days was very important.
Zion’s Moses Basket Bassinet
I did my research and I found a company called Wholseme Linen. Not only that they had the Moses Basket Bassinet that I was looking for made from sturdy 100% all-natural woven palm leave, but also an organic linen mattress pad stuffed with hypoallergenic flax tow. Everything was made with zero toxic materials and it was a perfect choice. We got the whole set: the wooden bassinet stand, the Moses basket, and the organic linen mattress.
What we love is that the Wholesome Linen’s Moses Basket Mattress Pad is made from all 100% organic flax materials that are hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal & anti-microbial. Stuffed with seven layers of pressed flax tow provides the perfect firm support for your baby development. The Mattress Pad is breathable, helping to control your baby’s body temperature and avoid the risk of overheating, as recommended by the American Association of Pediatricians prevent SIDS. By contrast, foam mattresses treated with chemical fire repellant have been known to encourage the growth of bacteria. The combination of the organic flax tow and linen fabric acts as a natural fire retardant, meaning that no fireproofing chemicals are used and each one of our organic flax mattresses passes the US, Canada & UK fireproofing regulations naturally.
Zion’s crib matress
Since day one Zion has been sleeping in his favorite Wholesome Linen bassinet and it’s been wonderful. He is a great sleeper and I believe one of the reasons for that is his sleeping space. Now that he’s grown we have transferred him to sleep in his own room in his crib. The transition went very easy and smooth. So for his crib again we were looking for the safest and non-toxic mattress and of course, Wholesome Linen has one.
