The Importance of Sleep for Kids

We all know how important a good night’s sleep is, and this is especially important for children during their development stages. There is a growing body of research suggesting that sleep issues can be impacting on many areas of our children’s health and development, including academic performance and growth.

Sleep researcher and psychologist Dr Sarah Blunden, from the Centre for Sleep Research at the University of South Australia, told a recent psychology conference in Melbourne that sleep problems, which can be medical or behavioural, can affect many areas of a child's memory, attention, thinking ability and behaviour.

One area of helping your child get a good night’s sleep, is selecting the right mattress. Bedshed care about your children and have developed a range that is specifically designed for growing kids.

Dreamsense Kidz mattresses have been designed with the wellbeing and comfort of active kids in mind. Providing a healthy, supportive, sleep environment for a growing mind and body, these children's and teen mattresses come with a range of options that also make the incredibly practical.

The Dreamsense Kidz mattress range has some great features and benefits:
