Bedding Essentials for Kids
August 21, 2020
We all know adults should be getting at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night to function at our best level and stay healthy. But kids need more rest than we may realize for optimal health.
Preschool children need 10 to 13 hours of sleep every night. School-age children need 9 to 11 hours, according to the Sleep Foundation.
A comfortable bed is essential for deep, rejuvenating sleep. Here are a few products recommended by Dr. Mehmet Oz that may help your little ones sleep better.
Good Life™ Mattress
Giving your kids a supportive foundation is important. The Good Life™ Mattress is topped with layers of memory foam and fast response foam. These contouring foams support and align the spine throughout the night. Plus, they are infused with cooling gel and activated charcoal to keep the bed comfortable and clean.
The mattress cover features nano-silver ions that attract and destroy up to 99 percent of 650 different types of bacteria. This natural antibacterial infusion is safe for all ages.
But probably the best thing about the Good Life™ Mattress is its 10-year warranty, which means it will last as your child grows.
Stay the Night ™ Pillow
This premium fill pillow combines shredded memory foam and EngineeredDown™ for an incredibly comfortable pillow that’s also supportive. Oh, and it’s great for pillow fights.
The memory foam is infused with CoolRelax™ gel and the shredded fill makes the pillow cool and breathable. Our SilverScience™ cover is infused with the same nano-silver ions as the Good Life™ Mattress for a clean sleep space.
Safe in Bed™ Encasement Protector
A mattress protector is a must-have bedding item for every child. This encasement protector covers every side of the mattress for total protection against spills, dust mites, and bed bugs.
It’s thin and quiet—your kiddos won’t even know it’s there. But it works every night to protect your mattress. The fabric includes soft, cool, hypoallergenic TENCEL™ lyocell. And our waterproof barrier keeps out liquids but allows for airflow, so it won’t trap heat.
And, as for all our products, the Safe in Bed™ protector features antibacterial SilverScience™ technology that naturally keeps your kids’ sleep environment clean and fresh.
Center Yourself™ Weighted Blanket
Let your kids snuggle into the Center Yourself™ Weighted Blanket for a calming and relaxing experience. The pressure from the weighted glass beads sewn into the inner core of the weighted blanket mimics a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation.
Deep pressure stimulation, or deep pressure therapy, has been shown to lessen anxiety. One study titled “Exploring the Safety and Therapeutic Effects of Deep Pressure Stimulation Using a Weighted Blanket” showed 63% of participants reported lower anxiety after use.
The Center Yourself™ Weighted Blanket features a cooler TENCEL™ fabric on one side and a warmer fleece fabric on the other side for maximum comfort. It also features a SilverScience™ cover for a clean, antibacterial space.
