First bed for toddler - mattress advice

Interested in what mattresses people have bought for their little one. Mine is about to leave a cot and head for an Ikea Kritter bed, and was just wondering what types of mattresses people would recommend.
Foam, sprung, pocket sprung etc

Seen a few at http://www.babymattressesonline.co.uk (sprung and pocket spring)
and ikea ( here and here )

Just wondered what people are using and whether its worth getting a pocket srpung one seeing as the little one doesnt weight that much (compared to an adult) or whether people have gone for foam ones...

when my two were little (this is a while ago, they're now 10 and 13) they went straight from a cot into a normal single bed

we paid £130 quid for cot/bed mattress when son was born and he went straight from that to normal single bed with mattresswhen he was 2 paid the extra money for cotbed 1 because of cotdeath fears but he sleeps fine now in normal bed

but for his 3rd birthday we bought hm thomas the tank bed which requires cotbed mattress but we'd thrown that out grr

got a nice 1 from amazon just the other month got good reviews could dig out details if you like was around £35 delivered

they're more of a recent thing aren't they. when my eldest was about 8 they both went into a bunk bed. i have a small house unfortunately and luckily both being girls they still quite happily share a bedroom.

The thing you have to watch is are the memory foam ones happy being wet on?

my kids have always had foam, they seem comfy enough and aren't stupidly expensive if (when?) you have to replace it (toilet training?)
The kids beds can seem a rip off, but my youngest has one and its ideal as she has a tiny bedroom. Luckily shes small for her age so if she stays in it till shes 5 or so, then I can look at getting her into a midi bed or something so I won't lose much storage when she needs a full sized one.

Thanks for the responses. We have already bough the Ikea Kritter and are not sure about the ikea mattress (stupidly didnt check them out when we went there). but also dont know about the baby mattresses online company either.
Hadn't considered toilet training accidents.. best buy plastic sheets as well then ...

I've just remembered, i believe the IKEA beds beds use a slightly different size mattress to all the other companies and so need a special one.
#13
we have always got spring mattresses as seem much comfier than foam. Both we have bought come with a waterproof panel but we have also put our own waterproof sheets on. We used baby mattress online via ebay and they will make any size you want. Quality is excellent. Ikea beds are definately not average size. xx
