The Best Twin Mattresses for Kids
The time had come. My four-year-old was ready for a big girl bed that she could grow into, and my ten-year-old was ready to replace their own well-worn loft bed mattress with something cozier. So, I did what I usually do: I spent countless hours online reading every round-up and review I could get my eyes on.
When I emerged from the haze of memory foam vs. innerspring, OEKO-TEX and CertiPUR-US certifications, I had a much more in-depth picture of children’s mattresses than I ever thought possible. I learned that kids at different ages require different levels of support — more firmness for younger kids and a little less for tweens and beyond.
In my research for how to choose the best mattress for kids, here are the kids’ twin mattress options that really stood out, and what I ended up choosing for my own children.
