Sleep is important to health, but in all honesty most of people like sleeping. Cuddling up on a bed, under warm blankets in the winter, or a cool sheet in the summer is one of life’s most enjoyable moments. Trouble sleeping because a bed is uncomfortable can lead to a miserable night, and even put health in jeopardy. Often the cause isn’t a lumpy mattress or a squeaky springs, but a gap in a place that makes sleeping comfortably almost impossible. The Mattress Wedge is designed to fit any bed, and fill these gaps to make sleeping a joy again.
The Space Between
Uncomfortable gaps making sleep almost impossible occur for a number of reasons. At times the way a bed is designed will leave a space between the mattress and the headboard. Making the bed is easier with this gap, but actually sleeping on the bed isn’t as simple. Waking up feeling as if one is about fall into the space, or accidently bumping into the headboard interrupts sleep, and it can make falling asleep difficult.
The same is true if the bed must be positioned near a wall where the head, knees or feet will either slide down the gap during sleep, or bump into the hard surface of the wall. This too will make the process of falling asleep and staying asleep very difficult.
Another use of the wedge is a matter of convenience. Moving two small beds together will allow one person the luxury of a big bed, or two people space enough to sleep comfortably. Again the gap between the beds is a problem, and as the individuals trying to sleep will find this space will usually grow larger during the night.
The Gap Becomes the Bigger Problem
The other issue many find with gaps is they tend to “suck in” objects around the bed like books, iPads, glasses, remotes, and pillows. It can be annoying having to get out of the bed to retrieve items, or try to reach under the headboard to blindly search for the items. Pillows will often become stuck for a time in gaps and night warfare is needed to wrestle them back out of being wedged between headboard or the wall and the mattress.
What Mattress Wedge Can Do
The Mattress Wedge is designed to be long enough to fit any size bed and resolve the gap problem. Rather than trying to stuff blankets or pillows into the gap, then trying to sleep with the lump mess this wedge is made of smooth, high-density comfort form. The foam will keep its shape, but slide easily into the space and remain there with slipping.
There are other benefits of using this wedge as its sturdy, but lightweight design will remain with the flat side up, and the wedge’s back edge to fit into the gap. For the sleeper this means encountering soft smooth “other pillow” when rolling or bumping into it in the night.
The mattress wedge is encased in a removable pillowcase that’s machine washable. The case helps the wedge remain cool in the summer and warm in the wintertime. The case also has 4 storage pockets, so not only does it eliminate the problem of items falling off the bed, it also offers a place for these items to be kept safe while during sleep or when relaxing in bed.
The Response from Mattress Wedge Pillow Owners
The response for many who have purchased this wedge is positive. Some people did state they felt the wedge elevated their own pillow slightly, but for most this doesn’t seem to be an issue. When used to fill the gap between two beds this typically isn’t a problem. One solution proposed by other users of the wedge is to ensure the back portion of the wedge is actually securely fitted, which can keep the flat edge portion from becoming too puffy.
Other users of the Mattress Wedge have found they enjoy taking it with them while traveling as this can eliminate problems with beds in hotels or guest rooms. It’s ability to join two beds together is also helpful in situations when it’s not possible to find rooms with a single bed, or when a room with a single larger bed would cost more.
Another benefit customers found was finally having a safe, secure place to keep cellphones as they sleep. This keeps the device close by with the danger of it falling off a night stand or having to scramble in search of it during the night.
The Over All Use
Designed to last, and washable this fix for the problem of gaps will last for a long time. For those who want to travel with the wedge it will be necessary to find a way to pack it or store it for travel in such as way to keep it from bending.
