My brother and his wife, while waiting for the baby to be born, are still puzzled by the choice of a crib, but I was thinking about mattresses. The choice of children’s models is great, and some are designed for age from birth to 3 years, many – up to 10-12, and others – right up to 18!
How to choose a suitable mattress for the child? Indeed, in addition to age restrictions, or rather, the desired load, there is a lot of other aspects.
I myself do not like to sleep on a soft mattress, I feel uncomfortable on it. In addition, it is unhealthy. So for children it is better to choose a model of at least medium hardness. The higher the stiffness – the less will be problems with the spine.
Type, as the composition of the mattress, is also of great importance. Orthopedic models are now presented with or without a spring block – usually from natural latex.
Quite a few mattresses with coconut coir filling are sold for small children. They are characterized by elasticity, strength and, as stated by manufacturers, hypoallergenic.
The more in the composition of a specific model of natural materials, the less the possibility of the development of mold and various harmful microorganisms. They are well breathable, but do not absorb moisture and odors.
Well, and do not forget about the size of the mattress, if you pick it up for an existing bed. Before buying, you must perform the necessary measurements, then to avoid problems.
And how did you pick up the mattress for your child?
