Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for the growth and development of children. It is very important that they get somewhere from 8-12 hours of sleep per night, depending on their age, as sleep affects the mood, health and attention span.
The bed mattress plays an enormous role in the building of a child’s memory, regulating stress levels and developing moods. What is even more important, since the bones are still developing, choosing the right mattress which provides proper support can help your child avoid potential spinal problems in latter stages of life.
The truth is, nowadays parents pay more attention to the style of the bed and bed frames which contribute to the design of the room rather than its functionality. However, the most important component of the bed is definitely the mattress. Children spend most of their time in bed, and that is exactly why you need to purchase a quality mattress for your little angels. Before spending a small fortune on this, you should definitely become familiar with the types of mattresses available on the market.
Firstly and most importantly, decide whether you need a toddler bed, a full, a twin bed, an extra-long twin or a queen-size bed for your child. If you have enough space in the room and money to spend, get a bigger bed. This way your child can have sleepovers or share a bed with a sibling. You can also lie down with them if needed.
Mattresses are classified according to the support they provide. The many technology advancements throughout the years have given us a wide variety of mattresses to choose from.
