Kids mattresses: what's included in the range?
Pocket sprung mattresses
A pocket spring mattress is a go-to for kids due to its unparalleled support and comfort. Pocket springs are individually cased in their own fabric pocket and move independently of one another, allowing for the mattress surface to conform to their body shape. Therefore, pocket springs promote healthy spine alignment, even weight distribution and pressure relief, which are needed for growing kids. To view the pocket sprung mattress kids collection, you can filter the mattresses by type at the top of the page.
Open coil mattresses
Compared to a pocket spring mattress, open coil options are more affordable. They are some of the best beds for kids. After all, they don't require much support because they're much lighter than adults. The brands we stock produce brilliant open coil mattresses for children that adequately support your child.
Features of children's mattresses
No memory foam
Whilst there are a few children's mattresses with memory foam, most of our options do not include the material. Memory foam goes through several chemical processes to achieve its body-moulding properties. This is why many brands that produce children's mattresses emphasise that their sleeping solutions are 100% foam-free and, therefore, free from VOC harmful chemicals. Whilst memory foam mattresses can provide a good night's sleep for older children, small kids and infants can be sensitive to some of the characteristics of a memory foam mattress. Therefore, we recommend choosing a chemical-free option as the best mattress for small kids.
Hypoallergenic fillings are great for children that are dust mite allergy sufferers. Unlike natural fillings often found in adult mattresses, they create a sleeping environment where dust mites can easily reside. The fibre pore sizes of polyester fillings are small, which makes it hard for dust mites to pass through the mattress and build up over time. All kid's beds in our range include hypoallergenic fillings allowing your child to sleep comfortably and peacefully throughout the night.
Whether your child has spilt a drink or had an accident, you don't need to worry about damaged internal fillings or spring systems. Several of our options have incorporated waterproof covers into their designs. As a result, thanks to the waterproof cover. Many suitable mattress protector brands do the same job if you opt for a mattress without a waterproof element.
Each child sleeps differently, so considering their preferred sleeping position when searching for the perfect mattress is paramount. Generally, children weigh much less than adults, so the spring tension doesn't need to be as firm to support their body weight. Therefore you may find that a firmer mattress could be detrimental to their night's sleep; this is especially applicable to younger children. The right kids' mattress for your little one also paves the way for healthier spinal alignment and pressure relief.
Great for bunk beds
Typically, bunk bed mattresses don't exceed a depth of 20cm, meaning almost all of our mattresses for children are compatible with bunk beds. If you already own a bunk bed or are purchasing a new one, please refer to the specification to ensure the mattresses you buy are suitable for the bed frame.
What sizes of kid's mattresses do we stock?
From a single mattress (90 x 190cm), a small double (120 x 190cm) and a double (135 x 190cm), you can be sure to find the right one for your little sleepers. We include a mattress size appropriate for all child bed frames, such as bunk beds or cabin beds, in our range. Moreover, we also showcase a collection of cot bed mattress options that can be viewed here.
