Choosing Children's Bedding



In order for children to develop and grow they need good quality sleep every night, one way to ensure that this happens is by making sure their bedding is comfortable and of good quality. If you're little one isn't getting the rest they require, it may be worth looking at their bedding. Here are some tips on how to choose the best items to allow your little ones get the very best night's sleep that they need. 

Pillow

When your child turns one you may wish to introduce them to a pillow for nap time and bedtime. Pillows are not necessary in the first 12-18 months of life if your child sleeps on their back or stomach however kids usually start developing sleep habits at around 2 years old where they are more likely to sleep on their side.  A low soft pillow is the best option as you don't want to put too much strain on their necks. Consider purchasing a toddler pillow as they tend to be smaller than a standard sized pillow and are also firmer. 

Mattress

If your child is currently going through potty training or prone to accidents during the night, a waterproof mattress protector may solve your solutions and protect your mattress. There are many different types of mattress's available, each with their own unique benefits and features and something to suit everyone. Children's mattresses offer great support, luxurious comfort and great durability. If you're looking for a new mattress take a look at My Next Mattress who have a wide selection of mattresses designed specifically for children including vibrant colours. 

Duvet

Children's duvet's have different tog ratings just the same as adults, this is to ensure that you have the right weight duvet for the right time of year. A child needs to be over 12 months old before they should sleep with a duvet, pillow or quilt. Children between the age of 1 and 10 need a light weight duvet with a low tog rating, even during the winter their small bodies trap air under the duvet meaning that they get much warmer than we would under a light duvet. 

Anti Allergy

If your child or toddler suffers from allergies it's a good idea to invest in synthetic, non allergenic bedding. There are many Anti-allergy bed sets available for children which come with built-in protection against allergies. 

Sleeping bags

Sleeping bags are very popular amongst many parents. A sleep-suit such as the Gro-bag are great alternatives if your toddler doesn't like to sleep under a duvet and they also help to stop them from getting over heated. These are also sold in tog rating.

  7. Designing your child’s room starts with choosing a style that both you and your child are happy with. Select bedding according to your taste and your child’s taste and move on from there to complete the rest of the décor. No matter what design you choose for your child, make sure your selection comes in twin bedding, full bedding or whatever size your son or daughter has. You may want to check sizes before falling in love with a color or pattern

  13. Those are some great tips, but there is such a thing as SIDS. A crib mattress for an infant should be firm. It's safer that way.
