Bed is for sleeping but for Samuel, bed is for jumping too.
As much as we would like and we’ve tried to prevent any jumping on the bed, in reality it’s just not possible with an active kid….
Especially with parents who also passionate about jumping :p
His new mattress started to gave way barely a few weeks in its tenure :p. Initially Mommy thought that Mommy is heavier (well that too :D. no questions about the heaviness) thus could feel the spring when Mommy laid down.
But when Samuel started to complain that he could feel the spring poking his feet when he jumps, we knew that’s our cue.
We went mattress hunting again yesterday determined to strike spring mattresses out of our shopping list.
We had 2 other type in mind;
- Fibre coil/coconut husk
We found a few latex models that are soft but cost a whopping 2K or more. They are probably a bit too soft for Samuel’s jumping and thumping too.
As for the fibre coil mattresses, we have limited choices only since both the store we visited do not carry many of them. We also find the mattresses a tad hard. Samuel might hurt his knee jumping on ‘em :p
Hard to please parents eh?
Too soft cannot, too hard also cannot.
We fall back on the spring mattresses. But this time, we got an extra thick mattress with additional layer of high performance foam.
It’s a bit over our budget but it looks sturdy and strong enough to withheld thumping impact
It comes with a 10 years warranty ......
although we are not sure what it says about wreck due to hard blow la :p
