What Size Should a Child’s Mattress Be?

If you have a toddler at home that is ready to move from a children’s bed to a normal bed, you likely have looked at twin mattresses. However, this may not be the best approach when investing in a mattress for your child. In this blog, we are going to explain the importance of ensuring your child’s mattress is the right size and what to look for when preparing to purchase.

While a twin size mattress may seem like the perfect fit for your child, it likely won’t remain that way for long. On average, a new mattress can last as long as 9 years with the proper upkeep. Unfortunately, if you invest in a small mattress a sudden growth spurt could make it uncomfortable or unaccommodating for your child in the near future. This not only can cause problems sleeping, it will incur more costs in the long run as you have to upgrade again prematurely.

If your child moves around a lot throughout the night, you may be worried about them rolling off the bed. With a larger bed, this problem can be mitigated as long as your child doesn’t tend to sleep on the edge of the bed. If your child’s mattress is a queen or larger, they will have plenty of room to move around and get comfortable throughout the night.

One other added benefit of investing in a larger mattress is the bedding options you have available to you. While most bedding for a twin sized mattress is aimed at children, a queen sized mattress provides the best of both worlds and can be adjusted as your child’s preferences change. Don’t get stuck with the added costs of a new mattress. Make your child’s mattress the right size to accommodate the future!
