Your child is being unusually moody and irritable these days. What’s more concerning is that you find them sleeping at the oddest hours in the oddest position. They sleep while eating breakfast, watching TV, and sometimes, while in mid-conversation. You’ve even had complaints of them falling asleep while doing their homework.
Next thing you know, their grades are falling. Instead of confronting your child or getting into an argument, sit down with them to get to the root of the problem. You’d be surprised to know that the problem lies not with your child, but in the mattress.
The Culprit: The Mattress
The mattress can no longer accommodate the weight of your growing child, making your child toss and turn all night. Your sleep-deprived child’s body aches all over. If you want your child to wake up fresh each morning instead of feeling sleepy and drowsy, you need to replace their mattress with a Wolf mattress.
Lack of Sleep Affects Child’s Early Development
You need to catch the early signs of your child not being able to sleep well. They include:
- Become excessively emotional and moody
- Being irritable
- Is hyperactive
- Unable to concentrate in school
- Unable to stay awake during the day
- Unable to wake up in the morning
The longer this sleep pattern continues, the more it’ll affect early development. It’ll affect your child’s mental and physical growth. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises parents to base the number of hours they need to sleep on their age.
Children between the age of 3 and 5 need at least 10 to 13 hours of sleep each day. Children between the age of 10 to 13 years need at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep each day. Without the right mattress, your child may not be getting half that.
