|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.

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.
