Functional features

Ikea orthopedic mattresses for children are intended for the prevention of disorders in the formation of the musculoskeletal system of growing children's organisms.

Their main functions are:

  • Maintaining the correct position of the children's spine during sleep. The correct position is the preservation of all natural curves.
  • Optimum load distribution. The orthopedic mattress does not form a “hole” in those places where the child lies. It elastically flexes in some places and remains "unbeatable" in others.
  • Muscle relaxation. For a good rest muscles should relax as much as possible during sleep. On an uncomfortable mattress, this is impossible, since the muscles must constantly support the bone skeleton. In the case of orthopedic products, Ikea is supported by the mattress itself.
  • Maintain optimum temperature. In winter, the products perfectly retain heat, and on hot days, thanks to their “breathing” features, they are given coolness.

At the same time, the products do not impair blood circulation, do not squeeze delicate children's skin, they do not have allergic reactions and irritations on the skin.

Selection rules

When choosing, be sure to take into account:

  • Age features of the child. For the smallest, for example, it is recommended to purchase denser models, and older children will prefer mattresses softer.
  • The size. It must exactly match the size of the child’s bed. Too small a mattress will increase the risk of injury due to hands or feet falling into the gaps between it and the edges of the bed.A large mattress due to deformation may be gathered by wrinkles or knolls, which will negate all orthopedic qualities.

In the Ikea size table there are mattresses:

  • for newborns and children under 1 year - 120 × 60 and a height of 5-10 cm;
  • from 1 to 3 years - 120 × 60 (on a standard bed) and 130 × 80 (for a sliding berth), 5-10 cm high;
