What are the benefits of creating a healthy & non-toxic crib environment?
A healthy crib environment eliminates chemical by-products and off gassing that can pollute nursery air. You want your infant to breathe only the healthiest, cleanest air. Learn more about why Crescent Womb is the best option for your baby.
Has Crescent Womb been tested for safety?
Crescent Womb has been fully tested to CPSC, CCPSA, and EU safety standards by third party labs. All of our testing facilities are federally recognized and have A2LA accreditation. In addition to federally required compliance testing, we have engaged in focus groups with countless moms and medical professionals throughout our product development. Prior to being released to the public Crescent Womb has also been field tested by parents and babies.
Why is breathability so important?
Research shows that a sleep environment rich in oxygen is critical for cognitive and physical development in infants. It also helps them sleep longer and deeper. Crescent Womb applies this knowledge in all products by facilitating better airflow in and around the crib while ensuring smart temperature regulation at naptime and nighttime.
Will Crescent Womb products help prevent SIDS?
The causes of SIDS remain unclear and are still being researched. Experts believe SIDS may be related to low-level toxins found in some nurseries, but there is no definitive research to support this claim. In 2008, a medical research study from UC Berkeley indicated that ventilation in a nursery may significantly reduce the occurrence of SIDS. As SIDS may be related both to overheating and accidental asphyxiation, Crescent Womb is committed to maximizing natural airflow and breathability throughout it's product line.
What is off-gassing and why is it important to prevent this in the nursery?
Synthetic materials can release chemicals into the air through evaporation. For instance, when you remove a standard infant mattress from plastic, you might smell a harsh odor. That's off-gassing, and it can be toxic to infants. Crescent Womb uses only non-toxic materials to ensure that nursery air is cleaner and safer for infants.

Do you use fire retardants in your fabric?
Our fabric is a nylon fiber that is NATURALLY flame retardant and safe for babies. Off-gassing from flame retardant chemicals in other products have been linked to sleep hazards. We don’t think you should have to sacrifice safety features for another. Crescent Womb's materials are fully tested to CPSC standards as well as prop 65 regulations.
