But then again there are so many types of the mattresses in the market, that sometimes it can be a challenging task. Once you know the right tips, it can be easy for you. This article will have 5 tips that you should consider while buying a mattress for your baby. The first and foremost is to find a firm mattress. If you are looking for mattresses, you must hear from a people or two to always buy a firm mattress. Why to buy a firm mattress for a newborn? Our mistake is that we often confuse firmness with hardness. Just because a mattress is firm doesn’t mean it is hard. Although there are hard mattresses, different mattresses have different level of firmness.
For instance, let us divide the level of firmness in 3 parts. The first is the very hard mattress, second is moderately firm mattress and then soft mattress. A very hard or very firm mattress is the one that has a hard surface. This mattress is usually for the people who have hunch backs and aim to have normal backs. If you have closed shoulders, then hard mattress is perfect for you. Hard mattresses may not give you comfort while sleeping, but if you want to have right posture, then a hard mattress is must. A moderately firm mattress supports your main body parts like shoulders, back a nod neck. You can sleep peacefully on a moderate firm mattress and your body will be supported. You will not sink in the mattress and the surface of the mattress will remain the same. A very soft mattress is very comfortable, but it is not supportive. When you go in the store, test the mattress by pushing it, if you feel bouncy then you know it is the one. Your mattress should be of the exact size of the crib. It should fit inside the crib. You will be surprised to see that most of the mattresses won’t fit in the crib even though baby mattresses come in standard in market. If you wish to save yourself some money and time, make sure that your mattress fits the crib. There should be no gap in the front of the mattress of the back. You can check this by inserting your finger in between the gap. If you can insert at least three fingers that mean that you should replace your mattress with a new one. Organic memory foam mattresses can be a great choice for your kids’ room. The mattress of kids should be waterproof. For this, you can buy a waterproof mattress topper. A mattress topper can be walked when it gets dirty. Kids spill liquids on the mattress which can permanently damage the quality and material of the mattress. Durability of crib mattresses are not a big concern as mattresses must be replaced by two or three years as they grow up, so buy accordingly.
