After having a second baby, life has definitely changed for me. Juggling work at home and managing a household is already challenging to say the least, and adding a demanding infant to the mix can be stressful. But the hardest part is always trying to the best mom I can be, and balance my limited time and energy with each child, doing more than just meeting their basic needs like feeding, diapering, or bathing – but actually enjoying those special moments that make parenting wonderful.
In order for me to really give my best self every day, it is so important for me to get a good night’s rest. If I don’t sleep, I find myself zoning out all day long, snacking incessantly, and reacting to little things with a much shorter temper. When Sophia was born I started sleeping in her room on a daybed, because I didn’t want to have to wake up Tom every time I got up to nurse her. Right around then, I got the opportunity to try out the Reverie adjustable sleep system, and it was a good thing because very soon I was back in our bedroom.
Reverie’s sleep system is a holistic approach to sleep. The system has two major components, including an adjustable base and a DreamCell mattress (or two mattresses depending on the style you choose). The adjustable base allows you to lift your head or feet up, and also has other special features like massage. For our king bed, we have two separate mattresses and bases, and each base has its own controls. The DreamCell mattress is completely customizable to your level of softness or firmness. If you are ever unsure about what firmness of mattress you want, one factor to consider is the “ILD” (see this article on why you need to know about ILD) range of the mattress. Each person has their own preferences and its a good thing DreamCell comes with different types to compensate for that.
Overall we absolutely love our new bed. I never realized I could improve my sleep so much until trying out this system. I think everyone needs to at least try an adjustable base system to see just how comfortable it can be. I also love the headboard which has a modern and clean design that works great in our room. We like to spend our weekend mornings in bed now – sleeping in and just hanging out – me reading or working on blog projects and Tom and Adam playing on their iPad’s or reading books. For sleeping, I can set my side to my comfort level without disturbing Tom. In the middle of the night, I just lift up the head to a seated position and I’m comfortably nursing Sophia without straining my back. Tom loves the zero gravity setting, where the head and feet are slightly lifted, so you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.
Having children is never easy, and when you add house responsibilities, cooking, sports, homework, and after school activities – you have a recipe for one tired and stressed out mom. Sleeping well is so important to maintain your health and sanity. A huge thanks to Reverie for helping this mom get her much needed rest!
