Choosing the right natural bed and mattress is extremely important for your baby’s quality sleep and proper development. Sleep is not a waste of time, but a fundamental process of renewal and refreshment of the body and spirit.
A human being spends a third of their life in bed and therefore it is important that the bed and mattress are comfortable and close to the body. So, when choosing a mattress for your child, you need to pay special attention to some things.
A quality mattress is essential for quality sleep and a healthy spine for your baby. Today, with the evolution of science and technology, mattresses are brought to perfection because experts of all profiles are included in their production. However, this doesn’t mean that every bed is good for you. For the proper development of a small child, a soft natural latex mattress is needed, which supports the baby’s spine.
What should you pay attention to when choosing an appropriate bed? The bed should provide proper development of the spine. Nowadays, they have a completely wooden base. However, the most important element of the bed is the mattress. On the market you can find different models of mattresses, such as latex, spring and memory foam mattresses. The ideal mattress should be 20cm longer than the sleeper’s height. The height of the bed is measured in this way: sit on the bed and position your feet correctly; the knees should be bent at a 90 degree angle.
As for baby mattresses, you should know that there should be no gap between the edge of the crib and the mattress itself. The mattress must be neither too hard nor too soft. Otherwise, baby mattresses are generally much thinner than adult ones because the baby is light. As the baby grows and develops, the mattress needs to be changed.
Pediatricians recommend getting a new mattress for your baby, not inherited. The reason for this is the fact that the mattress has no moisture or bacteria. If you still get a used mattress, please note that each mattress can be used for 8-10 years.
In recent years, the most demanding mattresses are those with natural latex layers. They are anti-allergic and permanently elastic, they let the air out. If you or your child are prone to allergies, such mattresses are made for you. Don’t worry, it can be an easy process.
