Memory Foam Crib Mattress Topper

Updated on November 22, 2014

Help Your Baby or Toddler Sleep Better with a Memory Foam Crib Mattress Topper

Sleep is very important for babies and toddlers and by using a memory foam crib mattress topper a baby's sleep can be improved. Having a baby sleep well is also pretty important for the parents as a better night's sleep for baby means a better night's sleep for parents.

Memory foam is a polyurethane with chemicals added to increase its viscosity and density. Different densities of the foam will adjust and rebound from a person's imprint at different speeds. When someone is lying on memory foam, it will adjust to their shape, reducing pressure on th.e body.

Instead of buying a full memory foam mattress, one alternative is to buy a mattress topper. These are placed on top of the mattress and, for a baby or toddler, are often thick enough to provide a similar benefit due to the child's smaller weight and size. They are also easier to clean than an entire mattress, often being machine washable.

Using a memory foam mattress topper reduces the pressure on the baby's body by adjusting to their shape, which improves a baby’s sleep by increasing comfort. It can be worthwhile buying two toppers so it's never necessary to wait for one to dry after an inevitable accident. Although opinions may vary, it's best not to use a topper with a newborn.
