I was looking through the search phrases that people have used in the past month to get to my website and found this one: “are nikken magnetic mattress safe for toddlers”. I think that is a really good question because we want to keep our kids safe and give them the best quality sleep that we can.
The short answer is yes, they are safe to use for toddlers.
When we got involved in Nikken our daughter was 2 years old and our son was 6 months and starting to cut his first teeth. When our daughter was going through that she was sometimes up twice during the night and probably 3 nights a week. It was miserable. So we immediately got our son on a magnetic pad. It was actually the Nikken Magnetic Pet Pad which just happens to be the perfect size to fit in a crib. It think he woke up during the night twice the entire time he was cutting his teeth. We were sold on magnetic pads right there and that remains to this day my most telling story about the benefits of magnetic pads.
Now our kids are 7 years old and 5 years old and sleep every night on a complete magnetic sleep system, which consists of a magnetic mattress pad, magnetic comforter, and a magnetic pillow. They sleep great and wake up rested and usually in a good mood in the morning.
Why I Believe Nikken Magnetic Sleep Systems are Safe
For one, I have met some of the people behind the Nikken products and I know people who know them pretty well. These are people with families and children and only want the best for them, which is part of the reason that they are with Nikken. I have also heard Anthony Bove, the person who developed many of Nikken’s magnetic products, speak about the magnets and his beliefs about how strong the magnets should be based on time-tested electromagnetic science. Nikken’s magnets are not exactly the strongest magnets on the market.
Nikken’s older magnetic mattress pads had magnets that were about 800 gauss compared to other companies that make magnetic pads rated at up to 10,000 gauss. Anthony Bove determined that 800 gauss was the right amount of magnetic energy to support the body and not over-stimulate it. The newer Naturest pads and pillow use 3200 gauss magnets and decided that the increased magnetic strength was needed because they sit deeper into the pad. The magnetic strength at the surface of the pad is about 800 gauss, the same as for the older pads.
The thing to keep in mind about Nikken’s products is that they are not intended to cure diseases. They are intended to support the body so that it can function at its best. Basically, all of Nikken’s products and technologies are designed to take the natural energies that our ancestors experienced in our natural habitat, the great outdoors, and bring them inside where we spend too much of our time.
So again, yes, the Nikken magnetic mattress pads are safe for babies, toddler, kids, adults, and the elderly. My kids sleep on a magnetic sleep system and so do my wife and I. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
