Which bed size for which age?

Choosing the size of a bed should not be rushed. It must be determined according to age. This is especially relevant for adolescents. Babies, children, and adolescents need a bed in their age group. It should provide enough space and not be too short or too narrow after only a short time. An adult must also lie completely on his bed mattress with the body and have space on the sides and ends for movement.
