Use some white noise if you're on a busy street. 2) A dark room. 3) A comfortable temperature, whatever that means for you. 4) Clean air, without allergens and toxic chemicals. That means dust and vacuum frequently, get some allergy covers for your pillow and mattress if you're sensitive, and a non-toxic mattress and bed frame.

We looked at the research and found that getting a non-toxic, crib mattress is definitely worth it.
