Our motto is Replace Every 8 Years, but there are several other factors to take into consideration when deciding if you need a new mattress. Below are some signs that your mattress has lost its support.
- You wake up tired or achy
- You tend to sleep better at other places than at home (such as a hotel)
- Your mattress shows visible signs of wear (it’s saggy or lumpy)
- Rotating your mattress no longer provides the desired comfort change
- Your mattress is 5-8 years old (this depends on the type of mattress you have along with the factors listed above)
The type of mattress you choose for a child is extremely important because children grow while they sleep. For safety reasons, crib mattresses are firmer than adult mattresses, and they fit most babies until toddlerhood, though exact timing is different for every child. Like adult mattresses, foam or innerspring crib mattresses both work well depending on preference, and some crib mattresses are lighter for portability or easier to clean in case of spills. Look through our wide selection of crib mattresses to find one that will safely support your baby as they rest. You’ll also find toddler mattresses to help them transition out of the crib and into their first real bed as they grow. Whether you’re looking for a specific model or have just started your search for the right crib or toddler mattress, we have all of the options you’ll need, at a range of price points that will fit your family’s budget.
If you are a side sleeper, we recommend a pillow top that has an added layer of soft padding stitched to the mattress’s top. Besides supplying an extra layer of sumptuous, cloud-like luxury, the pillow top mattress is also effective for soothing side sleepers’ hip and shoulder pressure points.

If you have a bad back, we recommend a firm mattress with good support for the lower spine. A firm bed provides enough comfort for most sleepers without sacrificing support and proper alignment. Check out our wide variety of firm mattresses here.
