Who uses memory foam mattress and memory foam pillows?
Who uses regular mattress and pillows?
Just wondering the sleep quality of any of you had either?
I can say when I’m home and sleeping in my memory foam mattress, I think I have more consistent sleep and don’t feel as tired the next day!

I had the sleep meditation music on last night, took the usual sleep stuff, and I was out for 6 hrs straight. So I think the music is key for setting the brain to focus on that. Seemed to work way better than the white noise.

I just got something on Amazon called genius sleep. I'm going to give it a try tonight and report back. I have no problem falling asleep lately, just can't stay asleep. The PS doesn't seem to help

I didn’t read all the responses but I agree with having sex. That knocks me out quick!

I figured I cannot be the only person here that has trouble sleeping!

I take melatonin and Now sleep.

Nothing really works to help me stay asleep!

Looking for ideas on what everyone does routine wise and takes to get a restful sleep?
Good thread! How’s it been going since creating this thread?

Did you find any tip that works best?

I can't believe I forgot the 2 most important things:

1) Sleep alone. My Master bedroom is hers. After the baby was born (lol 7yrs and counting),I moved into the guest bedroom. My snoring and flopping around would keep her from getting back to sleep when she got up to Breastfeed. Once that crucial year passed, we tried "reuniting" but neither slept well even on the King TempurPedic we bought. So now we use "her" bed for "baby makin practice" then I scurry down the hall when it's time for bed. Yes, I agree it's unromantic but it's harder to like each other at all without sleep.

2) Invest in sleeping tools. I have buddies who won't blink at spending $50k on cars but won't drop $5K for a premium mattress. Test out the Memory foam lines. I love our TempurPedic(s) but they are pricey. I also have issues with OSA (apnea) and very "bad" shoulders so I need to Side Sleep. Problem with Side Sleepers is constant numbness and tingling in hands due to being "musclebound". If you have issues with pain or Reflux, I highly suggest trying the MedCline Systems. I have the shoulder pain with body pillow and I sleep very well for the first time in 10yrs. I've had it just over a year now and aside from washing issues (pain to get covers back on after) I'm 99% satisfied. It's eligible for Flexible Spending Accts and I think I paid around $275 complete. It works left or right and I literally stopped tossing day 1. By weeks end that "foam smell" is gone and it paid for itself 365% in sleep quality.

Yes you'll look and feel like a nursing home "gomer", especially with my Cpap on too; you will however feel great in the morning.
