This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Better Sleep Council. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you ever wake up in the morning and think, “wow my neck/shoulder/back/knee/etc. is killing me…” In my world, Some of the blame is equal parts JP, Kevin and Cookie, however most of the blame is directed at our current mattress situation. I’d definitely love to replace it soon because my back should not sound like an old attic floor when I stretch in the morning. It used to be a wonderful mattress to lay upon, but somewhere along the way 2 large body grooves began to form on either side of the bed and now both me and Kevin feel like we are sleeping in a ditch. Add JP (he still visits in the middle of the night) and Cookie (who thinks she owns the bed) and it’s one big happy family.
I wish I would have had the foresight to understand why my bed would need a water-resistant cover. Apparently we sweat out a lot of water in our sleep – and it gets absorbed by the mattress. Between the need to de-funk a 5 year old sweaty mattress and the occasional bed-wetting courtesy of my child, I think I might be out shopping for a new mattress this memorial day when are the sales are in full bloom. Do you have plans?
We moved into our home about 5 years ago, and that’s when we decided to upgrade our bed’s size from a queen size to a cali king. JP got his own bed, upgraded from the toddler bed that he was previously sleeping in. It was important to make sure that the mattress rested upon a flat platform so it can keep its shape.
Choosing one can be so hard, but it can help a lot if both you and your partner are on the same page when mattress shopping. There’s a lot of guides on how to buy a mattress, but none will be as valuable as this piece of information… Wear comfy pajama type of clothing when out shopping for a mattress and consult a guide for how to get better sleep.
