Out of any age group, children require the most amount of sleep and a proper mattress is essential for children to have a good night’s sleep. In fact, the proper mattress can also help support your child’s posture and even affect bone strength. Because high-quality mattresses last up to 10 years or longer, it’s important to find one that grows with your child and can accommodate developing bodies. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing the right mattress for your child:
Most children transition from a crib mattress to a big bed between the ages of 2 and 3. You may opt to use your crib mattress and go straight to a toddler bed, but if you’re considering longevity, it’s best to focus on a single bed mattress. This mattress is the perfect size, measuring in at 38 x 74.5 inches, for growing and developing children into adulthood.
Materials & Types
There are various types of mattress available on the market – from innerspring to memory form mattresses – that are important to keep in mind. For example, children with allergies are often sensitive to synthetic mattresses, and can sometimes cause skin irritation, respiratory problems, and other health issues. To prevent a possible reaction, choose an organic mattress or one made of natural materials, including cotton, organic wool, silk, natural latex and even bamboo.
The most supportive varieties are pocket-sprung, memory foam and latex, with each having their own benefits for children. Pocket-sprung mattresses often feature comfy tufted covering layers, while memory foam mattresses will reduce how often children wake up during the night. Latex foam mattresses are very breathable, which is great for warm rooms.
Most people assume a box spring as the only choice for a child’s bed foundation. However, a simple platform bed works well in a child’s room and saves you money. If you want to consider a traditional bed frame though, you also need to purchase a solid box spring. Most high-quality mattresses have matching box springs, so you can purchase the two together as a set. When choosing a box spring, select one that’s the same size as your mattress and fits snug inside your bed frame.
