I'm in the market for a new mattress for my son and came across your site. You seem to have a good working knowledge of mattresses for kids, and I hope you can help me. My son is 7 yrs old but is small and only about 25 lbs due to his genetic disorders and failure to thrive diagnosis. He needs to be safe and protected at night much like an autistic child would need and he is a fall risk due to his limited mobility. I am going to purchase a sleep tent for him that is designed to be a safe enclosure for special needs as these mentioned. The sleep tent is designed to fully enclose a twin mattress. So I am on the hunt for a great mattress. It is time to retire the outdated crib and its crib mattress. I want something most likely on the firmer side because too much softness from foam or plush makes me worry about suffocation. He likes to rock up to sitting position and I'd like a mattress that gives him the freedom to move around but at the same time be comfortable. After all the goal is to sleep comfy and safe. Any suggestion??
Thanks for you help!! Olivia
