Dear The Mattress Underground,
I have been researching mattresses for my young child for weeks now. It is time to transition the convertible crib/toddler bed now to it’s full size option. I can not make a decision. I have researched innersprings vs memory foam vs latex and can not make up my mind. Our child is very petite but a very active child. I do not want to spend an arm and a leg on a mattress but I also recognize the importance of a good mattress for a growing child. I also would prefer something that is safe as I am concerned about environmental factors children face today more so than when I was a child. It needs to be a full size and the maker of her crib/bed recommends a low profile foundation or the use of a Bunkie board with the mattress. Would you happen to have any suggestions? I am open to purchasing online as I have not found many options in our area where I can purchase them locally.
