Guía definitiva para elegir colchón para un niño

Definitive guide to choosing a mattress for a child

Childhood is the crucial stage of development of all people. It is at this time that you grow the most physically and where the routines and habits that will condition your life and future performance are created.Therefore, it is essential that children have an abundant and quality rest, easily provided by choosing the best possible mattress for them.

Choose the mattress according to the age of the child

Not all growth stages are the same, so mattress requirements are not the same for each stage either.

In the early life, it takes a very high firmness on the mattress. Babies grow while sleeping and move around a lot during the night. A soft mattress will make them rest worse and will increase the risk of suffering curvatures in the back, as well as pain and cervical problems when they grow up.

For this early childhoodmattresses of great firmness and adaptability, such as those made with natural latex are recommended.

As your child growsthe firmness of the mattress can be decreased, although it should not become a soft mattress either. Firmness is crucial to obtain a good posture of the spine and back in general during sleep. It is not recommended that children sleep on a soft mattress before the age of 10: at this age, the firmness of the mattress becomes a matter of preference rather than necessity, but before that it is extremely important that the firmness is high.

At these ages, different options can be considered. Although latex is still a very good option, pocket springs and the firm memory foam are also good alternatives.

Total absence of harmful substances

To protect the health of the little ones in the house, their mattresses should be made with natural and harmless products. Some certificates, such as OEKO-TEX, ensure that the products have been manufactured in complete absence of harmful substances, guaranteeing the quality of the material and its safety.

Different fabrics (especially those that are not natural) can be the cause of allergies, respiratory diseases and skin irritations, with an even greater incidence in younger children and in those with a family history of these diseases.

It is also highly recommended to opt for fabrics with antimites, antibacterial, antifungal, antihumidity and hypoallergenic certificates, to make sure that no respiratory disturbance can cause a sleep problem.

Protect your mattress

By extending the life of your mattress, you also improve the rest of your children.

The mattress protectors are the perfect complement to it: especially those which are waterproof, which will save your mattress from the occasional "night pee" of the little ones.
