My sons mattress was one designed for young children and was fine at the time. However as he is now 10 he was finding the mattress uncomfortable. I knew it was time to buy something a little more substantial ! Having shopped around I settled on a silentnight mattress. The silentnight pocket essential 1000 single mattress,has as the name implies 1000 individual pocket springs.When my son tried it out in the shop he thought it was "mega comfortable" . The mattress is made for single sized beds and measures 90 cm in width, 190 cm in length and is 26 cm deep. The mattress is covered with a knitted fabric with a micro quilt top.It feels really soft to the touch,although I also use a mattress protector to not only keep the mattress clean but also to add comfort. The mattress is classed as "medium"and is designed to support you and prevent you from rolling into the middle of the bed. I actually prefer a soft mattress but it is perfect for my son. The mattress is filled with polyester and is suitable for anyone with an allergy problem. Although it is recommended that you rotate the mattress on a regular basis to prevent wear,there is no need to turn it. The mattress conforms to British safety standards and is fire retardant. It comes with a 5 year guarantee.I paid £150 for this mattress in my local department store although it was on sale for a higher price I negotiated a deal as I also purchased bedding at the same time. Overall I am pleased with this mattress and more importantly;so is my son!
