1. When is the best time for a child to switch to a toddler bed?


  • Age considerations

Is it time for baby to switch to a toddler bed? Usually, we consider switching to a toddler bed between the ages of 1.5 and 3. At this stage, babies begin to seek more independence.


  • Your child's physical development

Baby's physical development is also a very important indicator. Development in areas such as body length and weight is usually a good indicator to help us determine if it's time to make the switch.


  • Psychological readiness

Is the child already showing anticipation and interest in the new bed? Observing your child's reactions can provide us with important information about the best time to make the change.


Let's not hesitate any longer and enter into a new phase of your baby's life!

5. How to choose the right mattress size for my child?


  • Understanding different mattress sizes


When choosing a mattress, first of all we need to clarify the various different sizes of mattresses and the groups they are suitable for. Generally speaking, mattresses come in four common sizes: twin, full, queen and king. However, for growing children, it is important to consider the length and width of the mattress to ensure that the mattress can accommodate the child's growth and development.


Twin mattress: Typically 39 x 75 inches, suitable for toddlers to preschoolers.


Full size mattress: Usually 54 x 75 inches, more suitable for children who are already in school, providing more space.


  • Mattress comfort and health


Mattress comfort is directly related to your child's sleep quality and growth. A good mattress can not only help your child fall into deep sleep faster, but also prevent various physical problems caused by incorrect posture.


Mattress material: the mattress material directly determines the comfort and service life of the mattress. Currently on the market are common latex mattresses, spring mattresses, etc., each has its own advantages and disadvantages.


Hardness selection: the hardness of the mattress needs to be selected according to the child's physical condition and habits, too hard or too soft mattress is not conducive to the child's physical health.


Go, together to select the most suitable mattress for your child's healthy growth!
