The best children’s mattresses promote safe, comfortable sleep, which is a vital component of well-being for those of all ages. This is what parents should consider when choosing a mattress that will ensure their child has many restful nights.
Ideally, parents want to choose a mattress that will last until their child is ready for an adult bed. High-quality construction and materials provide a bed that remains comfortable and supportive as the child grows. Latex foam is a good choice for a child mattress since it adapts to the sleeper’s weight and shape. This means it will work as well for a toddler as for a lanky adolescent. Also, more traditional mattresses, like the ones we manufacture here at Buis, can be flipped and rotated, prolonging the life of the innerspring system.
A single, twin-sized bed makes sense for parents seeking a less expensive option or those with a smaller home. However, when a tiny child turns into a tall teen, they may no longer fit on the mattress properly. In this case, a twin XL, which is slightly longer, is a good alternative. A full-size mattress allows plenty of room for comfortable growth when families have the budget and space.
For most children, a medium-firm mattress will promote a restful night’s sleep while comfortably supporting the child’s weight. A supportive, firm mattress will allow for healthy spinal alignment. Involve children in the mattress-buying process and ask them what type of bed feels best. For some added cushioning to a firm mattress, consider adding a supportive and body contouring mattress topper.
Many parents choose an innerspring mattress because of their durability and affordable price. Latex is another durable option that can stand up to substantial wear and tear. The Talalay latex material available from Buis Mattress provides a cooler sleeping surface that is designed to be anti-bacterial, providing a healthy night’s sleep for years to come.
