Finding the right mattress for your child’s bedroom can be difficult if you’re not well informed. Luckily, if you are reading this post, it means you’re one click away from any information you may need, and if you continue reading, you may not even need to click further.


Before you go on purchasing a new mattress for your kid, there are a couple of things to consider: is your child suffering from any special condition that would require a special type of mattress? In that case, follow the physician’s instructions, no matter how well other mattresses manufacturers advertise. Secondly, if your young one is inclined to develop allergies, the only safe choice for you will be at least a mattress with hypoallergenic and antibacterial cover, if not one that’s entirely made out of such materials. The last important consideration you need to put into play before deciding on a mattress is the price you are willing to pay, as prices tend to range a lot.


fr4When reading the specifications for a mattress, there are two features that you need to focus on: the composition and the comfort level. While nowadays mattresses can be made out of materials ranging from cotton to memory foam, the decision process will be a lot harder if you’re not up to speed with the recommendations of health authorities. For instance, the foam usually present in mattresses fillings can be quite dangerous if used for long periods of time because it releases noxious gasses. This is valid for most plastic compositions, and you should avoid these types of mattresses as much as possible.


The comfort level of the best mattresses


The comfort levels on mattresses go from firm to plush and speak about the softness level in a matters, precisely how well it resists to the weight of your body. While young children have already passed through the dangerous phase of SIDS risk, and they are less subject to the risk of developing problems with their spine, a certain degree of firmness is always better than a completely plush body support.

Out of the current types of mattresses, I think the best one for children and adults alike  is the natural latex foam, as it is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, is doesn’t release gasses, it’s very resistant, and provides a good comfort level. At the same time, this is also probably the most expensive type of mattress, so you’ll have to think twice before making your choice.
