Recommendations for a Big Boy Bed Ikea Mattress

Good Questions

Q: Ohdeedoh readers, our son is ready for a big boy bed. We're planning on getting a mattress at Ikea because they don't use the bad fire retardants and they are reasonably priced, but there are so many too choose from. Can anyone recommend a specific Ikea mattress?

Editor: I was at our local Ikea this weekend and my son was testing out their beds and mattresses so you might make a fun trip out of it and take him on a test run. Readers, are you happy with an Ikea mattress? Tell Wendi what it is! (You can read Maxwell's review of the Sultan Erfjord here.)
