Looking for a top 5 list to do additional research

Hi coolmonk,

I would keep in mind that there are many different types of innersprings and each type is also used as a support layer for a huge variety of different mattresses. In most cases the support layers or components or a mattress (whether it’s an innerspring, latex, polyfoam or any other support material) isn’t the weak link of a mattress and it’s almost always the comfort layers that are closer to the top of a mattress that soften or breaks down long before the support system. Having said that … latex (either in the comfort layers or the support layers) is certainly a great choice for those who are familiar with the material and know they like it.

Some of the better options or possibilities I’m aware of in the Boulder/Denver area are listed in post #2 here.

Even more important than the innerspring is the comfort layer and cover that is over it because that is what she will be in closest contact with. Some of the more informative and helpful posts and threads about mattresses and children are listed in post #2 here.
