Tips on Choosing the Right Mattress for Kids

Out of the 24 hours a primary-school kid (around 6 to 11 years old) gets in a day, about one-third of the time needs to be set aside as bedtime. That is because quality sleep is essential for the brain to fully recharge, promoting a stronger immune system and improving concentration and performance, as discussed in this article.

Therefore, it is important that your child is well-equipped with the right bedding for a good night’s rest. Here are some things you should look out for which selecting a mattress for your child.

#1 Good Support

A mattress that is too soft or sunken may be harmful for growing children’s spines and bone alignment. You want to choose a mattress that is fairly firm and can stay in shape to provide the support that kids need.

#2 No Sleep Disturbance

Imagine two young siblings sleeping on the same bed and their sleep is disturbed every time one of them tosses and turns in bed. That could happen with an open coil mattress, which doesn’t react to weight and pressure independently, causing motion disturbance.

#3 Heat Dispersion

Night sweating is more common among kids compared to adults since they spend more time in deep sleep and they have a higher proportion of sweat glands in relation to body size. Opt for a mattress that allows body heat to be easily dispersed and offers good ventilation.

#4 Hypoallergenic

Certain types of mattresses such as conventional foam or spring/coil ones tend to trap dust mites more than memory foam or latex mattresses, thereby triggering allergies, such as asthma, and be bad for overall health.

Research points that sleeping on metal-based innerspring mattresses might increase human body exposure to EMF, which in turn can cause health problems. Electromagnetic energy can present itself through electronic devices such as mobile phones or televisions – and even spring mattresses – in the bedroom. Continuous EMF radiation during our sleep can interrupt the human DNA regeneration capacity, causing unhealthy sleep in the long term. Gethá latex mattresses, which are 100% natural and 100% metal-free can help to minimise your exposure to EMF, while replicating your sleep environment as close to nature as possible.
