The Right Mattress for Your Child
Organic materials like cotton, wool and non-toxic materials are ideal for kids, because chemical content can be dangerous for children as they spend more than 10 hours in the bed
As the kids grow up parents learn how to cope with new the situations that they face every day until the moment when the child finally goes off to college. One of the first challenges that parents face is moving the toddler from his cot to a normal bed. This stage can be difficult because the child can refuse to move and the parents start to ask hundreds of questions about the new bed. If they succeed to conclude this transitional stage, the other problems will be related to the bed. On the other hand, the kid can give the signals which mean that he is ready for the move. If he starts to climb the guard rails of his crib or a new baby is coming, time has arrived for moving the kid to the bed.
A good pediatrician can give many valuable advice for choosing the right bed and mattress for a two-year old kid. When it comes to toddler beds there are many options. These beds are mainly small and come in cool shapes that your child may find amusing. Toddler beds are a good choice in the moment when the kids finds it difficult to move from the crib to the bed. In another situation a toddler bed can be an extra expense, because they are small and the kid can grow too big for it. If you are forced to buy one, keep in mind that the mattress is the most important thing because the spine of kids is quickly developing, especially at night. The role of the mattress is to provide necessary support for the body of the child. The spine of children has to be in a neutral position. This will allow it to grow without constraints. This means that the mattress has to be soft, but not completely. The kid should not sink in the mattress. Pediatricians say that a memory foam mattress is not good for the first bed of children. Instead an innerspring could be a better choice. Another important thing is the material used. Organic materials like cotton, wool and non-toxic materials are ideal for kids, because chemical content can be dangerous for children as they spend more than 10 hours in the bed. These materials avoid the risk of allergies than can be caused by latex mattresses.
Moreover, the price can be a decisive factor, but think that your other children are going to use the same bed and look for an extended warranty because the children can jump on the bed and damage the mattress. On the other hand, you can extend the life of a mattress by protecting it from dust and other things that can ruin it.
