Please stop rocking the mattress

Being part of a family business has really taken its toll on my sleep. Obviously I own a great mattress so I think it’s safe to say my mattress was not my problem. You may find this ironic but I don’t sleep so well, but please don’t tell anyone. The truth is I’m a light sleeper and add into the equation two dogs (Hrudey & Callie), noises (every little thing), and the disturbances that can happen within a mattress from my wife or myself repositioning throughout the night and I’d had enough. Kathy and I fixed our problem, but before I tell you how, did you fixed yours?

What kind of mattresses won’t disturb the other person?

Simmons Beautyrest makes one of the best mattresses I have ever seen to stop the disturbances from one person to the other. The springs in this mattress are not connected to each other. It’s that simple. Push on one spring it doesn’t affect the other. No wonder they advertise it with a bowling ball and pins.

The Sleep Number Bed from Select Comfort is another. Sure it’s a fancy adjustable airbed but each person can set the bed to the firmness they like. That is plain cool & the simple reason you can do that is because there are two mattresses. Having two mattresses in the same bed stops disturbance. Hey that’s half of what it takes to get a good night of sleep.

More mattresses that stop nightly interruptions in sleep

Thought about buying a waterbed? Wait don’t stop reading! I’ll let you in on a well known secret, my wife and I own a softside waterbed, their not just for the hippies anymore. Having two mattresses, two temperature controls for custom firmness and climate control in a mattress with fewer disturbances than regular mattresses and boxspring… I sell beds and can’t think of a bed that can do more than this one.

The Tempurpedic bed and other memory foam mattresses may stop motion transfer better than any mattress built today. These guys pedal their mattresses with someone walking around on the thing while a glass of red wine sits on the other side. If that doesn’t send the message of what do not disturb means in a mattress then I don’t know what will. I actually owned the 8 inch version called the ” Classic”. I admit it. I really can’t say that I’ve ever slept on a mattress set that moves less.

Hospital Beds or Adjustable Beds. Dual adjustments, dual massage, top it with the mattress of your choice. Just don’t know how it could get much better than this.

The solution to your mattress disturbance problem

Realize that a mattress is not a cure all for not sleeping, but there are things we can do to help improve the quality of the sleep we are getting. Do like I did, consider state of the art mattresses that stop annoying interruptions that we unintentionally all cause. Think about how a beds comfort is enhanced by not being to hot or cold. Think about what is possible if you were to own a mattress that each sides firmness can be customized. Whatever you choose it is important to know that there are solutions to such problems. I’m not sure how much this helps but many of us are out here trying to improve our sleep even the owner of a mattress store.
