5 Little Monkeys Mattress for Kids
At 5 Little Monkeys, we believe that healthy, sound sleep is critical for kids. Unfortunately, most kids mattresses on the market leave a lot to be desired. That's why we created the 5 Little Monkeys Sleep System: a revolutionary childrens mattress that uses specialized technology and organic material to create a bed designed for kids from the ground up.

Common Questions About Our Kids Mattress
What type of foundation or support is required?
We recommend using the 5 Little Monkeys Platform Foundation to support the mattress. However, our kids mattress is compatible with most solid surface or slatted platform beds, bunk beds, foundations, box springs, daybeds, and trundles. Our mattress can also be placed on the floor during the transition from crib to big kid bed.
Is there a weight limit on the bed and can it support parents and a child if needed?
It may be a mattress designed for kids, but there's no weight limit on our kids bedding – and we encourage parents to snuggle in bed with their little ones!
What is the mattress made out of?
The 5 Little Monkeys Mattress is made from a unique blend of 3 types of foam: the Comfort Layer has temperature-regulating memory foam technology, the Support Layer is made with responsive memory foam to help support lighter-weight bodies, and the Base Layer strengthens the layers above for durability, comfort, and resilience.

What makes your mattress specifically designed for kids?
So many things! But here are a few:
- ● Kids have a tendency to sleep hot which can prevent good sleep. We have a proprietary temperature regulating technology in the foam that helps kids sleep at their ideal body temperature for restful sleep.
- ● Kids have lighter weight bodies, so we designed our support layer to have responsive foam for proper support.
- ● Kids make "mistakes" so we made sure the fabric used on our cover is stain and water resistant, plus the cover is removable and machine washable with a heavy duty zipper.
- ● We only use safe materials including organic cotton in our textiles that are OEKO-TEX ® certified and CertiPUR-US (r) certified foam.
