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

As you grow, the firmness of the mattress may decrease, although it should not become a soft mattress either. Firmness is crucial to obtain good spine and back posture 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 be high. .
