Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
A bouncy bed means kids, especially the younger ones will jump until the bed starts to wear out. So, from the start look for a mattress that is less bouncy so you won’t have to deal with the issue of worn out mattress early.
Overview of Innovation:
Parents who are wary of their kids bouncing on the mattress, and potentially hurting themselves may want to choose a mattress made of foam or latex. It should have no traditional spring components and be soft to medium firmness. These mattresses are not very responsive and offer little to no bounce, which can reduce the risk of the child getting hurt.
A lot of kids get uncomfortable and some even get sick because the kind of mattress they are sleeping in makes them heat up. So, you find a child stating without covers the whole night. This is likely to get a child sick. That is why it is important to look for a mattress with good cooling ability as well.
