How 4 Different Mattress Types Compare for Kids

different mattress types for your children

Explore the pros and cons of different mattress types for children.

A mattress is made up of several different layers, which means each mattress is constructed in unique ways to offer specific benefits to various kinds of sleepers. Different children can benefit from different mattress types just as adults can; because of this, it is essential to consider not only what size mattress is best for your child, but what type is as well. Below, we discuss how four different mattress types compare for children. 

Memory Foam

A memory foam mattress is 100% foam layers. These layers may serve specific purposes, depending on the particular model you choose. Additionally, a memory foam mattress is not washable, so a good cover is mandatory for children. Children, who often weigh less than adults, can find memory foam quite comfortable. These mattress types can offer comfort and support while relieving pressure. However, you should be sure that the support layer will provide enough spinal support and alignment, and that the foam is non-toxic. 

Innerspring Mattress

An innerspring mattress will provide more firmness and more structure than a foam mattress. This strength and durability can be crucial for kids who often play on their bed and generally place a lot of wear and tear on it. When searching for innerspring mattresses, it is important to look for coils with a lower gauge, which will mean the mattress is more durable and firmer. Pocketed coils provide maximum airflow, but an innerspring overall is an excellent option for kids who sleep hot. This mattress type will not trap body heat, as memory foam mattresses often can. 

Hybrid Mattress

A hybrid mattress could offer you the best of both worlds by providing the support and durability of an innerspring with the comfort and plush of a memory foam mattress. Most hybrids will feature foam comfort layers with an innerspring support core to achieve this balance. 

Latex Mattress

If you are interested in memory foam mattress types but are looking for a more eco-friendly alternative, a latex mattress may be your best option. A latex mattress offers a bit more strength and support than memory foam, and all-natural latex is certified safe.
