Making sure that your child has a suitable mattress is incredibly important. Childhood is the most critical time in anyone’s life for physical development. It is crucial that children are given suitable bedding when they are young as it can really help them with their physical and psychological growth. Humans spend around a third of their lives in bed and young children will often spend closer to half their lives in bed, meaning that what they are lying on is vital.
One of the key areas in determining whether a mattress is suitable for a child is size. The last thing you want is your child sleeping on a mattress that they have outgrown, but how do you know if the mattress is too small? The general rule of thumb is that the mattress should be around 10-15 centimetres longing than the child’s body. Any shorter and they are at risk of sleeping near the edges of the mattress, which can cause support issues and can lead to poor circulation. Even if your child likes to sleep curled up tight in a ball, it is recommended that the mattress is long enough to let them stretch out.
Remember, a good mattress is the foundation to a healthy life.
