Back To School: A Guide To Buying A Mattress For Your Child
Do you know the quality of your child’s mattress? You probably have made their bed, but have you ever slept a night in it?
The most important item in your child’s bedroom is their mattress because sleep is essential for their growing bones, health, mood, stress levels, memory and attention span to list a few. The right quality mattress can last up to 10 years and provide your child with the foundation they need to grow up healthy and strong.
Here are 5 key considerations to help you find the best mattress for your child:
Relax, stay a while
When you’re shopping for a new bed, it’s important to have your child lie on several mattresses in their normal sleep position for as long as they want — or at least long enough to really know how it feels.
Bigger is better
Make sure you purchase a mattress that gives your child plenty of room to move. They should be able to stretch, roll over and move their arms and legs without falling off their bed.
There’s a mattress for every sleep style
Your child’s new mattress should gently conform to their body while keeping their spine in a relaxed, neutral position. Support and comfort go hand in hand for providing a better night’s sleep.
The foundation for a good night’s rest
Mattresses are much thicker and heavier these days and need a strong foundation (boxspring) to provide consistent support and enhance overall durability. Keep in mind that a new mattress and foundation are designed to work together to provide the best performance and longest life.
It’s a smart investment that will payback over the long term
Getting a good night’s rest is important for your child’s health and growing mind and body. That’s why it’s a good idea to buy the best mattress you can afford.
