Buying a mattress for a child can be a challenge. Their bodies are growing, and they need more support as they approach their tweens and teens. At the same time, a quality mattress can last 10 years or more, so that toddler who graduated to a "big kid" bed will still be on that mattress when they turn 12 or 13. If you have the space, a twin XL mattress can accommodate growth spurts. A firm mattress, or one with a hybrid construction containing innerspring coils, can provide extra support as a child grows. Kids with allergies benefit from mattresses made with low-allergy materials and ones with cotton or bamboo covers.
