When should my baby move to a single mattress?
The decision to move your baby from a cot bed mattress to a children's mattress is a big one. Not only for you as parents but also their future development. In time, a baby's cot bed mattress will simply become too small for them. This is not good for allowing them the room to grow and sleep comfortably at night or nap times.
The general rule of thumb for moving your baby to a proper kids mattress and bed is between the ages of 18 and 36 months. All children are different though, so you may find your little one moves over earlier or later than this. A lot depends on their size but also how comfortable they are in the cot bed mattress and how safe it is for them.
What type of kids mattress should you consider?
As with adult mattresses, there's lots of choice when it comes to buying a single mattress for your child. The key thing to look at is getting one that supports them when they're asleep and helps to promote correct growth. Below are some of the best mattresses to consider.
Standard sprung - Open coil
Open coil is favoured by many parents. These type of springs work as one whole unit to distribute your child's weight evenly. The Standard Spring type of mattress is also superb at supporting their spine when asleep so it is always in the best position.
This kind of single mattress involves the individual springs being wrapped up in their own cloth sleeve. This gives them a more responsive feel that some children will prefer to sleep on.
These kids mattresses are hypoallergenic and also totally breathable. This makes them a great choice for kids who may suffer from allergies or need to feel cool to sleep properly.
This kind of mattress is very popular for both adults and children. The mattress is made from special foam material that moulds to the body shape of whoever sleeps on it. This is great for keeping your child from tossing and turning during the night.
This is a mattress with a firm, solid feel thanks to the reflex foam material inside. This is superb for giving amazing support to your children when they use it.
What should I spend on my child's new single mattress?
As with all other mattresses, the more expensive types will usually feature better quality fillings. This makes spending more on their new mattress a wise move. Not only will it offer more support and a better night's sleep but it should also last longer too.
Here at Mattress Next Day, we have a great choice of kids single mattresses. All are handmade in the UK to the highest standards and come with free 24-hour delivery. Our superb range of mattresses will have something for all budgets.
