Our Top-Reviewed Kids’ Mattress Is on Major Sale for Labor Day
Mattress shopping for your kid is always going to be a stressful time, no matter how well-informed you are. There’s the fundamental question of what size mattress to get your growing kiddo (twin or full!?) as well as a more nuanced conversation around comfort, breathability, and proper support. And don’t forget that you’ll have to make a decision between shopping online or bribing your kid to go with you to a store. Seriously, trying to find the best kids’ mattress that fits your needs is probably going to have you tossing and turning in bed — ironic, no? But if there’s one aspect that will truly keep you up all night, well after your kids have finally gone to bed, it’s definitely the price of such an investment. A durable kids’ mattress that will last years is going to cost you, no matter how you slice it, but it doesn’t have to be prohibitive if you plan things right.
What’s So Great About the Helix Kids’ Mattress Deal During Labor Day?
Now through September 11, you can take 25% off our favorite Helix Kids’ Mattress and get two free pillows, too. It’s a parent-approved, expert-backed investment that’ll last years.
Contributor Stephanie Ganz bought the Helix Kids’ Mattress last year for her then-4-year-old daughter, which you can read all about here, and it’s been going strong since. The mattress is flippable so you can switch between the firm and soft sides as needed; there are helpful notes on either side so you’re never guessing between the two. This basically gives you two mattresses for the price of one — which is even less expensive now that it’s on sale.
Sleep Sherpa founder Ben Trapskin also recommends the Helix Kids’ mattress for its flippability, as well as its hybrid build. Individually wrapped innerspring coils offer support, while layers of cushy foam add comfort. The mattress is made with a hypoallergenic cover that offers breathability for the muggiest of nights. It’s also water-repellent and stain-resistant (although you might still want to grab a mattress protector), and CertiPUR-US certified to be made without harmful chemicals as well as fiberglass to give you peace of mind.
If all that doesn’t help you sleep better at night, maybe the 100-night sleep trial will. As in, your kiddo can snooze on the Helix mattress for 100 nights before deciding if they like it or not, and if they don’t, you can return the mattress as long as it’s within the trial period. The fine line requires you to try the mattress out for 30 days first, which seems like more than enough time to see if it’s right for your kiddo — your kids will probably tell you all about their new mattress after the first night anyway.
