Bedtime Anecdotes

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

Sleep in our house is no easy task. With three children sharing a bedroom, one always wakes up the other. Over the summer, my children deviated from their normal routine, and for the past few weeks I’ve been doing everything in my power to get them back on track.

Rather than putting all three in bed at the same time, I tend to put Gemma to down first. Siella always asks me to lay in bed with her until she falls asleep, and Ryder usually goes straight to sleep, in his top bunk, but lately Ryder has wanted me to lay with him as well. Needless to say, this dance drags bed time on for over an hour some nights. In a few weeks, I’m certain their schedules should fall into place, but these nights have been down right exhausting.

In order for me to function the next day, I’ve been trying to get enough sleep, and for me getting comfortable in bed has become a challenge. When I was in high school, I started to have back problems, and I was eventually diagnosed with scoliosis. I can still remember the doctor telling me how important it was to have a proper pillow and firm mattress. My back still bothers me today, constantly knotting up, probably a result of my awful posture. Acupuncture and yoga helps some of the time, but in the end of the day, I always long for a good night sleep to help me feel better.

After over 10 years on the same mattress, it was time for Jason and I to buy a new one, and after plenty of research, we turned to Sealy for a Posturepedic Premier Hybrid Mattress. The Posturepedic Premier Hybrid Series mattress offers the best of both worlds, with half foam and half springs, combining body-conforming comfort with all-over support, so you can relax and sleep well. The mattress comes with the options of Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush or Ultra Plush.

Some of the features include:
Premium Cover Fabric: Premium-weight, lofty stretch knit fabric with soft spun yarn that allows the memory foam underneath to easily conform to your body. Side panels use a breathable border fabric that allows more airflow to help keep you more comfortable during the night.

Cooling Gel Memory Foam: In the top half of the mattress, layers of gel memory foam for body-conforming comfort and reduced motion transfer. Many models feature gel memory foam infused with cooling material to help keep you comfortable during the night.

Zoned Sealy Embrace Premier Coil: Encasing allows each coil to move independently, for more targeted support and reduced motion transfer. 

CoreSupport Premier Center: Exclusive feature, with even more reinforced gel memory foam in the center third and nearly 20% more coils, for exceptional support and durability where you need it most.

I paired our new mattress with Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Essential Support Pillows. They are designed especially for back and stomach sleepers, and deliver the core benefits if TEMPUR material. Between the mattress and new pillows, Jason and I have enjoyed some great nights of sleep, and my back has certainly reaped the benefits.

I’m so excited to have partnered with Sealy, and SITC will be giving away Tempur -Pedic Essential Support Pillows to five lucky readers!

  1. I try for 7 to 8 hours, but never know how how many hours it will actually be. I have will soon have 6 grandsons and this baby sitting grandma needs to sleep better!! 🙂

  2. Being in the same boat as you having a 1, 2, and 3 year old sharing a room…. I typically get 6 interrupted hours of sleep lol with my 1 year old crying every 3 hours at night and my husband snoring I’m lucky if I ever get 6 uninterrupted hours of sleep lol

  3. I get a few hours of sleep each night as my 16 month old still nurses and instead of night weaning he chose to eat less during the day and more at night, not fun for me when I have 2 other children to take care of.

  4. I also just had a third baby, 3 months ago, so between my 5 yo who needs water, bathroom, story, food, then more food; my 2 yo who decide he ONLY sleeps on the couch now and the baby Im lucky to get 4 hrs( thats a good bight sleep lol)

  5. If I am lucky I get 6 hours, most nights around 5. With 3 kids I never know and I am usually trying to find an empty bad at 330 am because there are at least 2 kids in my bed.

  6. The kids finally sleep well and I still haven’t figured out the key to getting enough sleep. I hope for 7 but it doesn’t always work! My son stole my fancy pillow and my bed could use a new good one! This brand sound amazing. xx

  7. It’s hard to say as I wake up every couple of hours, but I make myself stay in bed for at least eight hours every night.

  8. It really depends. I have a lot of back and neck pain so it keeps me up a lot. This pillow I would love to win/try with hopes of a comfortable night sleep. Thank you!!

  9. I usually only get around 4 hours a night but after a week it catches up with me and I sleep one day for 8 hours. I’m a worry wart and my brain just won’t let me sleep much.

    Ummm with an 8-month-old who still refuses to sleep through the night… I’d say I get a total of 5 hours…and really, since we share a bedroom with the baby I doubt any of those hours are deep, replenishing sleep. Help!! Haha!
