It’s important to take special care of child mattresses. This not only ensures your little one is sleeping soundly each and every night, but it also helps to safeguard their health.

Are you doing all you can to keep your child mattresses in pristine condition? Here are some tips to help:

  • Vacuum it often: You should vacuum every time you change the sheets, or at least every few months. With the wand attachment on your vacuum, use it across the entire surface of the mattress. This will help remove any dirt, dust, debris, and allergens that may have gotten into the fibers. It may also stave off mold and mildew that could hurt your child’s health over time.
  •  Flip it and rotate it: Be sure to flip your mattress every three months, and rotate it at least once a month. This will ensure it gets used evenly across the surface, so there’s no extreme wear and tear in one place. This also helps it retain the utmost support for the longest amount of time.
  • Cover it: Kids are notorious for spilling their food and drink. Unfortunately, if this happens on a mattress, the spill can seep into the fibers and attract bugs, breed mold, and have other unhealthy effects. To protect your mattresses from these little mishaps, invest in a water-resistant cover, one that wicks off liquids. This will make it easier to clean, too!
  • Buy the right support: When you get your mattress, make sure to also buy the appropriate box spring and bed frame for it. This ensures that the mattress doesn’t sag or droop in the middle, and that it provides your child the support they need.
