As parents, worrying about every aspect of our children’s well-being is just one of the many full-time jobs we hold down, and there are plenty of things to worry about! Are they eating enough? Are they sleeping enough? Are they being exposed to harmful germs?
What it basically boils down to is a concern that they are safe in every possible situation. So, why do we not want flame retardants in our baby products?
Obviously, we don’t want to surround our children with anything that could put them at risk, so flame-retardant items seem like a logical choice. For that reason, you will find flame retardants in any number of children’s products, ranging from clothing to mattresses and more.
Unfortunately, research has shown that there are a number of health hazards associated with chronic exposure to flame-retardant materials. These include cognitive delays, reduced fertility, and endocrine disruption. Babies are especially vulnerable given that their bodies are still developing, and yet studies have shown children to have higher concentrations of flame retardants in their bodies than adults.
So, how do we protect them?
Naturally flame-retardant materials. We have seen them being adopted in other infant car seats, some of which are excellent products, but what do we do when we want a convertible car seat? Fortunately, there is now a solution to this problem.
The innovative minds at Clek Mammoth have now covered their convertible car seats (as well as a booster seat) with naturally flame-retardant Merino wool in their 2018 Mammoth collection.
The Mammoth collection includes the Foonf convertible car seat, as well as the Fllo convertible car seat and the Oobr booster seat. Each of the high-quality, safety-first seats features Merino wool in a classic charcoal-grey colour.
In addition to being flame-retardant without the need for chemical additives, Merino wool is excellent at regulating body temperature. It is a moisture-wicking material that keeps baby cool on long, hot summer days, and warms them up during the coldest days of winter. On top of that, it is wonderfully soft, meaning your little one will ride in incredible comfort.
Avoiding chemical retardants is still the primary reason for Merino wool’s use, however. Your child’s safety does not stop at protecting them from impact, so for anyone concerned about the possible effects of chemically-treated products, Clek’s Mammoth line is clearly an excellent choice. There are absolutely no chemical retardants added to any of the Mammoth collection seats and that means that your baby is protected in more ways than one.
The Mammoth line may be new, but Clek is an established maker of high-quality and incredibly safe infant car seats. By choosing a Mammoth seat, you will know that your baby is safe from dangers seen and unseen.
We all worry about our kids. That’s natural, and it won’t change, but with Clek Mammoth car seats, you can quit at least one of your full-time worrying jobs.
