The importance of a good mattress for your kid

The average child has a busy schedule, and by the end of the day, their body is in need of a good rest



Many parents will spend a considerable amount of money on accessories of the best quality, for example the correct sports shoes. But how often do we consider how well our children’s bodies rest at night?


According to Tempur, children should sleep about 10 to 12 hours a night in order to recharge their bodies and brains.


Because a child’s spine is still growing, it’s very flexible and more adaptable to stress.


The flexibility makes the spine more susceptible to issues that lead to permanent deformation when placed under pressure for long periods of time, such as nightly sleep on a mattress that doesn’t offer support.


A good-quality mattress and pillow will provide much-needed support for your growing child.


Tempur’s unique temperature-sensitive material gently conforms to the shape of the body. It’s the perfect combination of firm support and soft feel.


The Tempur range includes mattresses, pillows, adjustable bases as well as accessories and linen. It’s distributed by Pharmaline and is available in Tempur stores countrywide. For more information and your closest store call 0861 60 60 60 or visit za.tempur.com.
