Today’s episode is about how to keep our sleeping babies safe and focuses on the breathability of crib mattresses. Our babies’ safety is our greatest priority, and breathability in crib mattresses may not seem like too big of a deal, but it’s more important than parents think. And Barry Cik, the Founder and Technical Director of Naturepedic, knows this all too well.

We’re thrilled to have Barry back on our podcast to discuss some of the biggest risks and dangers involved with infant sleep, why breathability is an important feature in crib mattresses, and what to look for when purchasing a crib mattress.

A little about Barry—he has had a lifelong interest in preserving the environment for us and all future generations. As a board-certified environmental engineer, Barry advocates for legislative reform and has four decades of experience investigating and assessing hazardous materials/contamination, resolving environmental problems, and protecting human health, safety, and the environment.

We couldn’t think of a better guest to discuss this important topic since Barry has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Our babies spend a lot of time in their cribs, so discussing this topic is important. We’re honored to have Barry back on the show and get into all the details regarding keeping your sleeping baby safe.
