Firmer Side (Ages 3-7)
For young children, spinal support is essential as they sleep. Rather than the plush feel most adults might be looking for, young children benefit from sleeping more on top of the mattress with a boost of extra support for their bodies.
The Helix Kids Mattress uses a dynamic Helix Responsive Foam in the surface of the firmer side to provide a responsive (bouncy) foam feel that will prevent your child from sinking into the mattress too far. This firmer Helix Responsive Foam layer has a firmness in the range of 6-7 (with 10 being the firmest.)
Softer Side (Ages 8-12)
As your child grows, though, they’re going to be looking for a little more plush pressure relief. When they’re ready for a change, just flip it over and you’ve got a whole new feel.
The softer side of the Helix Kids Mattress is designed with a memory foam layer that will hug your child’s body a bit more and allow for just enough sink into the surface of the mattress. Our memory foam comfort layer will offer a firmness in the range of 4-5. Your child will enjoy a bit more contouring from the plush memory foam feel without sinking in so much that they feel stuck.
