The best mattresses for kids

We all know the importance of a good night's sleep for your child. It leads to better grades, better moods, and ultimately better sleep for parents, too. But if you have kids, you know how long things last, or rather, how long they don’t last.

A kids mattress that helps encourage age-appropriate sleep and will last through the years of juice spills or jumping is quite the feat. Kids have accidents, and you want to make sure you aren't left on the hook for expensive repairs and replacements when they do. An extended warranty plan like MulberryCare can help protects your kids mattress so they can keep getting the best possible sleep.

Thankfully, we’ve done the heavy-lifting for you and made a list of some of the best kids mattresses we could find.

Helix kids mattress 

The Helix kids mattress is great for both toddlers and older kids alike. Helix mattresses are hypoallergenic, stain and water resistant, and have an odor-fighting microbe shield.

Their flippable design is a huge win, but the price tag can be hefty. The Helix kids mattress costs $749 full price. For a kid's twin mattress, that can feel like a lot, but when you know you’ll get 9 to 10 years of use, it might be easier to justify.

Avocado kids mattress 

If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly mattress, the Avocado kids mattress may be right for you. It’s made from 100% GOLS-certified organic cotton and wool for breathable comfort. It’s also made without any chemicals, off-gassing, chemical flame retardants, fiberglass, or polyurethane foams, making it a great mattress for especially sensitive kids and eco-conscious parents.

The Avocado kids mattress has a low profile that is perfect for a bunk or trundle bed, and runs for $649 on the Avocado website.

Saatva youth mattress

Looking for the best of both worlds with an organic mattress that is also flippable? The Saatva youth mattress is dual-sided, designed for children ages 3 to 12, and uses hypoallergenic and antimicrobial organic cotton. It also offers a nontoxic natural thistle flame barrier, plus a water-resistant finish and internal waterproof barrier to protect against accidents and spills.

The Saatva youth mattress is the most expensive of the ones we’ve listed, with the kids twin mattress starting at $795, plus any extras you may need like a mattress foundation. With the Mulberry browser extension, you can earn 1.5% cash back rewards when you purchase a Saatva youth mattress.

Protect your investment in a kids mattress 

We know some of the price tags on these kids mattresses can feel steep, but getting many years of use out of them can help take away the sting. If you shop around sales periods and use the Mulberry browser extension to get cashback rewards or free protection (or both!), the investment will be well worth it.

Mulberry offers unlimited free and low-cost product protection plans for everyday purchases at over 5,000 online retailers. Shop with the Mulberry browser extension to see how much you can save on extended warranties or product replacements.
