Mattress topper? Kaibutsu 1 child; Virginia 3525 posts
5th Nov '12

Does any one use a mattress topper for themselves or for their toddler? My son has a twin size bed and it is very uncomfortable. I feel so bad about it, I'm not sure it bothers him or not but you can feel the springs just rubbing your hand across it, and its not even a year old yet. So I'm thinking of getting a topper, and was wondering if anyone knew of an affordable, comfortable topper? How many inches should I get?

we use to have one until we got a bigger bed, I got it at overstock.com
Ceci's bed is the same way so Im hoping to get her one too, I was thinking a memory foam 4inch one.

My mom has a 4 inch one for their king bed and it is super comfy. Just not sure if I can afford it right now. :( Maybe I should let him sleep on my bed for now, it's not getting used anyways. (I sleep with him in his bed and SO sleeps on the couch..) One reason I know it is uncomfortable is because I sleep with him and wake up most mornings in pain.

Thats a good idea, you dont want your tot in pain.
Did you look at the prices on overstock. Maybe try when you or so get a tax refund.

I definitely don't want him in pain. :( I'm hoping to be able to get one before tax refund time but if not I will get him a really good one, won't matter the price. Maybe I should just get a couple of cheapo egg crate ones to stack on top of each other while waiting for tax time.

You can order online if you don't have one near you.

I don't have one near me, I looked around at the store online and couldn't find any mattress toppers? Do they call them something else maybe?

Id definitely pick up a cheap mattress topper for hygiene reasons so if theres any accidents during the night, you can machine wash the topper . It doesnt have to be the best memory foam topper or anything, it can be quite cheap

I got a cheap one to tide us over but I'm getting a more expensive one when we can. They can't be machine washed as far as I know but accidents never happen at night for us.
