Unboxing the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid
To ensure a smooth and hassle-free delivery and unboxing experience, PlushBeds ships their mattresses, including the Healthy Child Hybrid, compressed and rolled in a box.
Upon delivery, you can easily unbox the mattress and place it on your child's bed frame. The mattress is just 7 inches thick, so it is easy to lift. Once you remove the plastic wrapping, the mattress will expand to its full size almost instantly. The corners will also fluff up nicely, indicating great corner expansion.
You may notice a slight odor when you first unbox the mattress. This is because the mattress is made of organic latex, which is a natural material that off-gasses for a short period of time after being compressed. The odor is similar to the smell of new rubber, and it is not harmful. It will dissipate within a few days, and you will be able to sleep on the mattress comfortably.
You can help speed up the off-gassing process by airing out the mattress in a well-ventilated area.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid
PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid Firmness
Firmness is an important factor to consider when choosing a mattress for your child. Children need a mattress that is firm enough to provide support for their growing bodies but not so firm that it is uncomfortable.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is a medium mattress, a 5 on our firmness scale, which is a good option for most children. The mattress strikes a perfect balance between support and pressure relief thanks to its combination of materials and layers. It is not too soft or too firm.
PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid Feel
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is a great option for parents who are looking for a comfortable and supportive mattress for their child. The mattress has a luxurious, soft, and breathable cover that will make your child feel pampered.
Your child will definitely appreciate the cover and the softness of the mattress, as well as the support it gives them. As a parent, you will not have to worry about your child's spine, as the pocketed coils will ensure it is aligned and relieve pressure all over.
PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid Comfort
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid Comfort mattress is a comfortable and supportive mattress that is suitable for all types of sleepers. It is made with a combination of organic latex and pocketed coils, which provides the perfect balance of support and comfort.
We, as adults, tested the mattress ourselves and were surprised at how comfortable it was for a child's mattress. It is firm enough to provide good support but also cushioning. We think that most children would find the mattress very comfortable.
Here is a table that summarizes how the mattress will perform in terms of comfort for children.
|Child’s Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|

Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid Comfort mattress is a high-quality, organic mattress that is perfect for children of all ages. It is made with a combination of durable, organic materials, including GOLS-certified organic cotton and organic British wool. The mattress is also a hybrid, which means that it has both a soft, comfortable layer and a supportive layer. This makes it a versatile mattress that is suitable for most sleeping positions.
- Organic Cotton Cover: This is the outermost layer of the mattress. It is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton, which is a soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic material. The cover helps to keep the mattress cool and comfortable, and it also helps to protect the inner layers of the mattress from moisture and dirt.
- British Organic Wool: There are 2 ounces of GOTS-certified organic wool in this mattress. Wool is a natural fire barrier, and it also helps to wick away moisture and regulate temperature. This layer helps to keep the mattress cool and comfortable, and it also helps to prevent moisture buildup.
- ARPICO Organic Latex: This layer is 1.5 inches thick and is made from GOLS-certified Dunlop latex. Dunlop latex is a type of latex that is known for its durability and support. This layer provides the mattress with its structure and helps to prevent sagging.
- Pocketed Coils: This layer is 6 inches thick and is made from individually pocketed coils. Individually pocketed coils are wrapped in fabric pockets, which help reduce motion transfer and provide extra support.
Performance of PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is designed to be cool and comfortable, even for hot sleepers. The mattress is made with a hybrid construction, which means that it has both a soft, comfortable layer and a supportive layer. The soft layer is made from organic latex, which is a naturally breathable material that helps to wick away moisture. The supportive layer is made from pocketed coils, which help promote airflow and reduce heat buildup.
We conducted our standard cooling performance test, which involves lying down on the mattress for 20 minutes and monitoring the heat buildup on the mattress.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress performed well in our test. After lying on the mattress for 20 minutes, the heat buildup was minimal, and the reviewers felt cool throughout the test.
Overall, the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is a good choice for children who sleep hot. We gave it a 4.6/5 for cooling.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is a responsive mattress, making it easy for children to change positions and move around. The coils in the hybrid construction provide bounce and support, while the buoyant latex comfort layer helps facilitate movement. The mattress has a very low amount of latex, and the majority of it is pocketed coils, so it is expected to be very responsive.
To test the responsiveness of the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress, we performed our standard test. We placed a 20-pound ball on the mattress and measured how long it took for the mattress to fully recover. The mattress bounced back almost instantly, in about 0.4 seconds.
This indicates that the mattress is very responsive and will suit children who are very active and move around a lot on their beds. We gave it a 5/5 for responsiveness.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress is a responsive mattress, as the results of the previous tests showed. However, the lack of enough latex layers to absorb motion means that it is not as good at isolating motion as some other mattresses.
We conducted two tests to measure the motion isolation properties of the mattress. The first test involved placing a glass full of water on one side of the mattress and dropping a 20-pound ball on the other side. We observed the motion propagation in the glass of water to determine how much movement was transferred from one side of the mattress to the other.
Since the mattress has a bounce to it, the water in the glass moved a little when the ball was dropped.
However, since this is mainly a kid's mattress, the bed is not usually shared. So, this won't be a deal-breaker for most children. We gave the mattress a rating of 3/5 for motion isolation.
Edge support is important for children because they tend to move around a lot while sleeping. A mattress with good edge support will prevent them from rolling off the bed or feeling like they are falling off. This is especially important for young children who are not yet coordinated enough to control their movements in bed.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress has good edge support thanks to its pocketed coil structure and the limited amount of latex in the top layer. The pocketed coils provide support and prevent the edges from sinking too much.
To test the edge support of the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress, we applied firm pressure to the edges of the mattress with our hands. We were able to push down on the mattress, but we felt a lot of counterpressure.
We also sat on the edges of the mattress to assess the edge support. We sank into the firm mattress a little bit, but not enough to feel like we were going to fall off. We could still feel the support of the coils quite well. We also felt supported when getting in and out of bed.
Overall, we gave the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress a 4.8/5 for its edge support.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress has good noise isolation thanks to its pocketed coils. Pocketed coils are individually wrapped, which helps prevent noise from traveling through the mattress as they move independently.
We performed a noise isolation test on the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress by dropping a 20-pound ball onto it. We listened for any squeaks or noises through our sensitive microphones, but we did not hear any squeaking. The only sound we heard was the thud of the ball hitting the mattress.
The mattress was slightly noisier than other hybrid mattresses, possibly because it has fewer comfort layers to absorb movement. We gave the PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress 4.9/5 in our noise test.
Pressure relief is important for growing children, as it helps to prevent pain and discomfort. The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress has good pressure relief thanks to its combination of pocketed coils and latex.
We used our pressure relief test to assess the mattress with a reviewer who weighed around 100 pounds, the average weight of a child. This test involves taking a 20-minute nap on the mattress and then measuring the pressure on different body zones. The pressure map below shows how the mattress responds to each sleeping position.
As you can see, the pressure map is all blue for the back sleeping and side sleeping positions. This indicates that the mattress is providing good pressure relief in these positions. However, the pressure map is slightly green for the stomach sleeping position. This indicates that the mattress may not be as comfortable for stomach sleepers.
The PlushBeds Healthy Child Hybrid mattress provides excellent pressure relief, meeting the needs of growing children. We gave it a 4.8/5.
