Serene Foam for Child

07 Feb 2020 11:19 #1 by DreamWalking
Hello, I am looking into a mattress using Serene foam, which your toppers also use. I need something to support a 4-year-old child and also serve as an occasional guest bed. I know memory foam is not recommended for children but heard Serene foam is really a polymer. The mattress specs are 3" Serene foam supported by 7" of 1.8 LB 30 ILD below. Would it be firm enough and sufficiently durable for a child? Thanks.

Hello Dreamwalking,

Thanks for reaching our to Luma Sleep via The Mattress Underground. Serene Foam is very soft. 3" of Serene Foam will make a super-soft mattress. It is made by Carpenter Company using the same process as their polyfoams and memory foams. Serene Foam is a poly foam that has different properties than memory foam. We do not have experience in designing children's mattresses, so we cannot advise as to whether the design you cite will be appropriate.

Hope this helps!
