You Can’t Ignore Your Mattress


Welcome to Episode 114 of the Autism Parenting Secrets.

Sleep is the topic this week.  If you or your child has sleep issues, you know firsthand the impact it has on just about everything.

You can’t be the best parent you can be if you’re sleep-deprived and running on fumes.

And your child’s wellness, abilities, and behaviors will all suffer if they are not getting quality, restorative sleep.

Bottom line: improving sleep quality is worth the extra effort.  It matters so much more than we think.

This week, we’re joined by Arin Shultz, Senior Director of Sales & Marketing at Naturepedic.

Since 2003, their mission is to transform the lives of their customers through safer, healthier sleep. By eliminating materials like flame retardants and polyurethane foam from their line of certified organic natural mattresses, Naturepedic supports an organic holistic lifestyle while protecting the environment.
