Hi everyone. Please pardon my squishing my intro and question together! DH and I are expecting our first, (a little boy due dec '13). We have been searching high and low for safe, organic and eco-friendly furniture for our LO and are somewhat new to the scene.
My question is this: DH and I found a organic greenguard certified crib by Young American that's only a year old for sale on craigslist that we are planning to purchase. It's a great deal and the photos show it to be in incredible condition. The family has only had one child who recently outgrew it and were very into eco-friendly and organic products.
With it they are also selling a naturepedic no compromise organic mattress. Everything I read from lurking previous posts says Naturepedic is a great brand of organic mattress. They are selling it for less than half it's retail price and I can probably talk them down more, but I'm wondering, do you think it's creepy to buy a used mattress for our newborn? Naturally I would have to take a look at it, but DH seems turned off by the idea and I'm honestly not sure. Any thoughts?
