Children's Mattress FAQ's


When kitting out a bed for your toddler or adolescent, a mattress is the most crucial component of a great night’s sleep, because the correct mattress (with the right materials) will align to your child’s growing bones and help support their development from toddler to teen. 

We’ve already published a guide to kids’ mattresses, giving information about the amount of sleep a child needs, how levels of firmness can affect them, and appropriate dimensions to look for. However, if you’re after some more of Cuckooland well intended tips and tricks, here are a few FAQs that our customers ask when this important decision comes around:

  1. Is memory foam okay?

  2. We don't recommend memory foam products for children. We normally associate memory foam with ideas of revolutionary comfort for adult sleepers. Toddlers and young children don’t adapt well to memory foam material; they need extra support as they inch ever taller, which means the perfect mattress should be a little more rigid and temperature regulating than memory foam. Memoflex and High Density Reflex Foam designs are a (better) tip top choice, soft to the touch, breathable as well as being firm and durable.

  3. Do I need a mattress protector?

  4. The short answer is: yes. A longer answer may encompass the perils of a toddler’s slumber time i.e. bed-wetting, spills, and allergic reactions to their environment. Protectors have evolved long past the point of simple items devoid of comfort, and they’re pretty much essential nowadays.

  5. What should come first – bed or mattress?

  6. Since all bed types require a solid foundation for sleep, you need to ensure your bed and mattress marry in perfect harmony. Thankfully, Cuckooland has done the hard work for you, and pretty much all of our kids’ beds fit our standard sized mattresses.
