In order to ensure that your child get a good night’s sleep, you will need a good mattress for the cot, lift, crib or junior bed. After all, the mattress is a critical factor in whether your child sleeps well, be it in the pram or bed. There are many different kinds and sizes of mattresses, so it is important that you select the one that is just right for your child’s needs.
More about mattresses
When you have bought a bed for your child, it is important that you also find a good mattress - after all, a bed is only complete when it has a comfortable mattress which ensures that your child gets a good night’s sleep. When selecting a mattress for the cot or junior bed, there are several things that you need to take into account.
Children are generally somewhat restless sleepers, and therefore a baby mattress will generally suffer from wear and tear faster. It is important that you choose a durable mattress so that your child can enjoy it for a long time. All of BabyDan’s mattresses are of a high quality, and therefore they also last for a long time.
When it comes to checking that the child is a good fit for the mattress, you need to examine a few things. First off, the child’s spine should be completely straight when lying on the side, and secondly, the child’s heels and behind should not sink into the mattress.
What type of mattress?
When deciding on a mattress, it is important that you consider the child’s needs. We recommend that you choose a mattress with a removable bed cover, as then you can easily take it off and wash it if there is a little accident during the night. If your child is a bedwetter, it might be a good idea to buy an extra top mattress so that you can easily change the wet one with a fresh one. A mattress protector is also a great solution for bedwetters, and you can find those here in the online store as well.
In terms of the child’s development, a solid mattress is the best choice, and in particular, foam mattresses and latex mattresses are good choices. There are many different foam mattresses from both BabyDan and DreamSafe in the online store. If your child has asthma or allergies, it is also important that you choose a mattress made from natural materials, such as many of DreamSafe’s mattresses.
Remember sheets and a top mattress
Remember to buy good sheets and a good top mattress for the mattress, which will ensure that your child is comfortable in the bed. At BabyDan, you can choose between several different kinds of colours. If you have a newborn, it can be smart to buy some of DreamSafe’s breathable sheets, so that you can be sure that your child can breathe even if he or she is lying with the face directly into the mattress. Many of DreamSafe’s mattresses also have an integrated top mattress, but you can also buy top mattresses separately.
