For a good night’s rest…

My bed is old. Well, specifically the mattress.

We bought it when I was pregnant with Eva and still living in Switzerland. It is a dense foam mattress from IKEA and was a step up from the one Nil was using. On hindsight, I should have settled for a spring mattress. They last way better and are much more firmer. These days, I can feel myself rolling in towards the center – a sign that it’s time to replace this.

I saw some pretty good ones from and wonder if I can get anything similar here for a decent price. While I can still sleep pretty okay on this, I have a strange feeling that if I continue using this, my back will start to go!!!!

What about you? What sort of mattress are you using?

  1. I know how you feel, when we first got married, we were on a tight budget and got a cheapo Ikea mattress. After a year of sleeping on it, my back ached like no tomorrow! We then splurged on a Dunlopillo mattress that costs 3 times more but it was a pleasure to sleep on. Well worth the money spent 🙂

    I need to convince the hubs to change ours and if I can, get a bigger bed. LOL.
