    Default Mattress Buying for Big Bed

    Hi

    Looking into buying one of our children their first mattress. We already had our other ones prior to marriage, so this is the first time we've had to explore this area and would love some advice.

    We are after:
    Single mattress
    Something that will last beyond early childhood
    Medium firmness
    No more than $500
    Inner-spring

    TIA

    I've got no idea what brand of mattress we have on DD's bed, but it is really comfortable.

    We got it from Snooze (my cousin owns the local store which is why we went there) and she told me that they have loads of parents coming in saying they slept in their child's bed and the mattress was terrible so they want something comfortable.

    From memory we paid about $400 for the mattress and I expect it will last DD for quite a few years yet (ie: until she gets a bigger bed).

    I'd recommend going in and talking to someone in your local bedding shop and see what they have to see.

    All I can say is make sure it's Australian made. Then you can be sure there are no nasty chemicals or materials.

    I purchased my girls mattresses off eBay they are such great quality, proper pillow top ones and only cost $170 each for king singles.

    Just to add they were brand new with warranty and free postage
