Choose the right mattess filling
The most crucial factor when choosing a child’s mattress is comfort. Your child sleeping peacefully through the night is a luxury for most parents, so ensuring that the correct child’s mattress is purchased is a priority! A factor we need to consider is the filling in your children’s mattress. A coil spring mattress is the most popular and most economical type of children’s mattress on the market today. Coil Spring Mattresses are sometimes referred to as Bonnell Sprung. The coil wires are joined together in a metal net frame creating the spring. See 'Your Guide to Choosing a Bed' to read some more about choosing the right mattress.
Choose the right mattress top finish
The most popular mattress top finish is a quilted top. This has an outer fabric attached to the surface fillings, giving them a smoother and flatter surface. Thus, giving a softer/plusher feel to the child’s mattress.
Sizing your child's mattress
Single beds/double beds/toddler beds can vary slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer so it is important that you have the correct size.
