Want to make sure they get a good night’s sleep? Here’s what to consider when buying your child a mattress. A good night’s sleep isn’t just important for children’s development, it’s essential. Children’s bodies are still physically developing: toddlers, for example, can grow up to 1.5cm in a single night. This means they need more sleep than adults; between 10 and 14 hours, depending on age. That’s because the body goes into ‘repair mode’ during this time, and so proper sleep is vital if your child is to develop healthy bones, muscles and joints. 

It’s not just about physical growth, either. Studies have shown that when kids get good sleep it improves their behaviour, memory, ability to learn, and general mental and physical health. Not getting enough sleep, in turn, can lead to behavioural issues, child obesity, high blood pressure, and mental health problems.
