Children are constantly growing and it’s important to give their developing bodies, including their bones which are often an afterthought when it comes to health and well-being, the right nutrients. One ‘nutrient’ that is overlooked is a good night’s sleep. The right level of support is just as important for developing bones as calcium is. Today, we will focus briefly on the best mattress for a child.

Poor treatment of bones in childhood can lead to problems later in life so it is vital we as parents get this right. As adults, we understand what a bad night’s sleep in an uncomfortable position or space can do to you.

One night on the couch after a fight is enough to make you admit you were wrong even if you weren’t! That horrid ache in your lower back all day, the stiff neck and shoulders; it all stems from poor spinal support which makes your muscles work harder hence the stiffness.

Like adults, children have different needs from their mattresses so you’ll need to take into consideration their allergies but when it comes to comfort your child knows best.

Take them shopping with you and let them try a number of beds out, they’ll know pretty much instantly if the mattress is right for them. This may be a little harder with toddlers so opt for an individually pocket sprung mattress for support and breathability.

If you are unsure of what mattress you go to your local showroom or even call online retailers like Bedstar and ask a specialist about the different types of mattresses available and what would suit your child. You’ll need something that will grow with your child but opting for the biggest mattress possible isn’t always a good choice.

Trained specialists will know and you’ll be surprised how often they recommend a cheaper product because for them it’s about giving you the right bed, not the most expensive one.

Irrespective of where you shop look out for a mattress made in the UK as it will comply with all our health and safety regulations – giving you peace of mind – and will likely come with a one year guarantee.

Once you have your perfect mattress prolong its lifespan with a protector. These are no longer the plastic sheets that crinkled and crunched and kept everyone awake.

Modern mattress protectors are made from brushed cotton which is still 100% waterproof but is also noiseless, breathable, comfortable and practical. You can even get hypoallergenic ones to protect your child from the dust mites that cause hay fever and aggravate asthma.

A good quality mattress will give your child’s spine the best environment in which to strengthen and grow. An added bonus of a great mattress is your child is more likely to sleep through the night. Beware though, too comfortable a bed and you might never get rid of all their friends who want to sleepover!
