Choosing a New Mattress for Your Child

One of those special milestones in any parent’s life is the day when their kids are ready to move from a cot to a normal bed. Getting a new bed and mattress is an exciting part of growing up and also a big task for parents when it comes to picking the right childrens mattress that will suit their kid’s new needs.

How to choose a mattress

At a glance mattresses may all look the same, this is why one needs to dig deeper into what to look for in a brand new mattress for a child. We have put a few recommendations together in order to guide parents to select a good mattress for them.

First of all, you should set up a budget in order to narrow down your options. This will allow you to move away from cheap mattresses that generally compromise either on comfort or support in order to offer a very competitive price. Although prices and quality do not always correlated, as a rule of thumb you usually get what you have paid for and we all want the best for our little ones.

Get to know to different types of mattresses. If you are happy with your own mattress you might already have an insight into what type of mattress you want for your kid’s bed but this shouldn’t prevent you from investigating other options available. The basic types of mattresses include memory foam, latex, coil sprung and pocket sprung mattresses. Look into the materials and the fillings used in the mattress construction to ensure they are safe for your kid’s health.

Go for a model with a medium feel but plenty of support. Your kid may not be a toddler anymore but is still a growing kid with specific needs. While kids are growing they are still not that heavy, so pediatricians recommend making an easy transition to the first bed with a medium mattress which will provide support for your child’s growing body.

Don’t compromise on comfort as a good mattress should be supportive and comfortable. Don’t reuse a mattress that used to belong to an older sibling as if the mattress isn’t good enough anymore for him it is most likely that I will not be good for a younger child even lighter in weight.

Get your kid involved in the decision process. Once you have a shortlisted the mattresses you consider appropriate for your kid you will realize that most children’s mattresses come in colorful designs or designed with cartoon characters. If this can make bedtime a bit more fun, why not leaving the final decision to the person that will actually sleep on the new mattress?
