Mattresses Part 2

I told my son to pretend to sleep on his new mattress so I could take a photo.  I've never seen him sleep in this pose, ever.

Hello dear readers, who have been following my mattress adventures with interest.  In my last blog I was doing my best to tackle the many different types of mattress, in order to buy the best ones to satisfy my family for the years ahead.

Eventually I plumped for a memory foam mattress for my son, and a hybrid mattress (I think it's like a hybrid bike, but less sporty) for me and my wife.

The mattresses arrived, and their installation went swimmingly well, to be honest.

My son's mattress prior to unwrapping.  I think it was more fun at this point.
Ours was quite exciting, because it had been vacuum packed.  What this meant was that when I punctured the plastic wrapping it started hissing and magically inflating itself in a rather satisfying yet unsettling way that makes you wonder if it's actually supposed to do that, or whether I've just managed to destroy a brand new mattress.

My mattress comes with many icons.  It's a bit like my phone in that when I press them nothing happens.

As an aside, I've not seen any warnings that the new mattresses don't absorb vomit, so perhaps I'll have to try that out.

But in summary, they both seem to be good mattresses, and we've all been sleeping better!  In fact, I think I'll go get some sleep now...


  1. Only you could make buying a mattress interesting.

  2. So glad to hear you are doing better, Mike! It sounds silly but mattresses do make a difference. Now about that absorbing vomit thing...yikes!

  3. I'm still disappointed that in the 21st century we don't get to sleep in anti-gravity chambers.

    1. Definitely, I thought that we'd be more advanced by now.

  4. A memory foam collection mattress will definitely not break down so easily because it is of high quality and quite durable.You can buy any of the mattresses online from Diana Beds.

  5. Very Informative and useful... Keep it up the great work. Buy Futon Mattress
