With a toddler who still sporadically wakes up through the night and a husband who has obstructive sleep apnoea, getting a full night’s sleep in our household is a thing of dreams, well for me anyway.
Crawling out of bed at three in the morning is one of the things I’ve got used to, I’m awoken by a small hand tapping me on my face and a little voice waking me from my slumber. I instinctively wake up and get out of bed. I’m a Mum it’s what I do. I tenderly encourage my son back into his own room and into his own bed and pray he stays there whilst I hot foot it back to my side of our bed. I lie awake for at least twenty minutes waiting to drop back off as I toss and turn trying to find a comfortable spot in the mattress resenting my husband who seems to have slept blissfully through it all.
Having a comfortable mattress on the bed is said to be one of the most important things you can do to encourage a good night’s sleep and last week we took delivery of a revolutionary new mattress from Eve.
The Eve mattress is said to be “the only mattress you will ever need” and with its sleep inducing combination of latex and memory foam, the Eve has given me high hopes of a good night’s sleep
The mattress arrived cleverly rolled up in a huge box. It’s simply amazing how such a large mattress can fit into it but once I had manoeuvred the mattress upstairs (this really should be a two man job as it is really heavy) I carefully removed the packaging and the mattress sprung into shape.
I let the mattress rest on top of the bed frame and allowed it to breathe. It was obvious the mattress was going to expand in time so I left it to do its thing and went on with the rest of my day. When I went back upstairs to see how well it had risen, I was amazed. The mattress had really plumped up and was at least double the size.
According to the Eve website, the mattress is said to alleviate pressure points and will naturally align to the body to provide medium firm support. I’ve never slept on a memory foam mattress before so was really looking forward to seeing how well I would sleep on it. How would I cope with the mattress moulding around my body? Would my bottom disappear into the foam?
On first impressions, the mattress looks inviting and very well made. Sleeping on a new mattress is akin to sleeping in a hotel room to me. The first night’s sleep is that of acceptance that it’s a different mattress to the norm and you need time to get your body used to it.
Our first night’s sleep went well. We had no disturbances and I slept for a full seven hours. Yes, that’s seven whole hours of uninterrupted sleep. The mattress is magical!
We’ll be sleeping on our new Eve mattress for the next few months so stay tuned with how the mattress fairs. Will the ‘hotel’ mattress effect wear off? Will I grow to love the body moulding mattress? I’ll keep you posted.
