"Sleep is the power source that keeps your mind alert and calm. Every night and at every nap, sleep recharges the brain's battery. Sleeping well increases brainpower just as weight lifting builds stronger muscles, because sleeping well increases your attention span and allows you to be physically relaxed and mentally alert at the same time. Then you are at your personal best." (Marc Weissbluth, MD, Author of Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child)
The typical child maintains a hectic schedule involving school, extracurricular activities, homework, and household chores, along with social and playtime. By day's end, their bodies are fatigued and in need of proper rest. Children should ideally get 10-12 hours of sleep each night to rejuvenate their bodies and minds.
Many parents invest considerable time and money in top-quality accessories like ergonomic desks and chairs and appropriate shoes and equipment for sporting activities. Few parents, however, consider how their children's bodies rest each day in order to recover from activities and prepare for the next day.
A developing spine in children is highly flexible and adaptable to stress. However, this flexibility also makes it more susceptible to permanent deformative issues when subjected to prolonged pressure, such as 10-12 hours of sleep on an unsupportive mattress. A high-quality mattress will offer crucial support for your growing children to safeguard their health as they age.
Their mattress should conform to the body, ensuring your child experiences restful and rejuvenating sleep every night. Likewise, an appropriately fitted, ergonomical pillow is crucial for proper neck support and spinal alignment.
