How To Choose The Best Mattress For Your Child

Catching enough Zzzs is essential for your children's health and well-being. As parents, one of the most important things we can do is to ensure that our child has a quality and supportive mattress to sleep on. This might sound easier than it actually is. With so many options, materials and features now available, teddy bed have written a guide to help direct you to the best mattress for your young ones. 

<h1> Consider your child's age and size

One of the simplest ways to determine the ideal mattress for your child is based on their age. The teddy junior mattress range comes in two sizes and firmness. A mattress that is too soft may not provide enough support, leading to aches and pains.

Ages 2 - 4 years

Firmer Foam layer assists the lighter body weight of children aged 2-4 years, by providing pressure relief, breathability and spinal support

Ages 5 -18 years

The Grey foam layer provides a medium-firm feel and everything a growing body of children aged 5+ needs while they sleep.

Machine Washable Outer Cover

Kids will be kids. They can be messy, clumsy and thoughtless - but we love them for it. The teddy junior knitted top fabric is designed to protect when those "whoopsy" moments happen. Simply remove it and throw it in the washing machine to return it to its cleanest form. This helps protect against allergens and dirt for a happier and healthier sleep time after time. 

Waterproof inner Cover

Inside the teddy junior range is a removable inner waterproof cover to protect against spills and accidents. Providing the solution to keeping the core of your child’s mattress both dry and hygienically clean throughout their development.


Teach your children from an early age the importance of recycling by practising what you preach. Made from 2nd Life fabric, your teddy junior also helps protect the planet by using upcycled plastics. Using OKEO-TEX Standard 100 certified fabric, you can rest assured the product has been tested and proven free of any harmful substances.
