Over the centuries our bedding evolved as civilization has advanced.

To begin with there was only the ground and rocks to sleep on.

Thousands of years ago our ancestors were more concerned with staying alive than where to rest their heads at night. They slept where they could on the ground as long as it was safe.

As civilization advanced though the ages so did our bedding as we progressed from the bare ground and animal skins to sleeping on piles of straw and roughly woven blankets.

Yet, there was still a problem of sleeping on the cold damp ground and fighting off the bugs.

As our ancestors settled into communities and developed the skills of husbandry, it wasn’t long before they were weaving blankets, stitching them together and stuffing them with wool, feathers, and straw. And Lo and Behold the first primitive mattress was created!

Once a basic mattress had been designed, the next evolution in bedding was getting off the ground. The first mattress frames were just an elevated platform. This eventually gave way to a wooden frame with ropes woven through it. It worked but the user had to constantly tighten up the ropes to keep it from sagging. It was from this crude arrangement that the saying ‘sleep tight’ originated.

Mankind finally emerged from the dark ages with the invention of wire springs and coils. Not quite what we are used to seeing today though, these coils were built into the bed frame while the mattress, remained as just a woven blanket stuffed with feathers, animal hair or straw which rested on the springs. Later in the 1900’s when mattresses began being manufactured they often had bugs in the stuffing even though they were new. If you mother has ever said to you “goodnight, don’t let the bed bugs bite’, well now you know where that saying came from.

One of the greatest advances of civilization was the invention of foam padding. This padding could be wrapped around the coils and springs to make a fully self-contained mattress that rested on another set of box springs. It truly was one of the greatest inventions in history.

Our beds are still evolving though. Thanks to technology we now have beds that are filled with water, electric fully adjustable beds, and even memory foam developed by NASA, the same people who explore the universe.

Testament to advances in bedding is the waterbed. For those who love their waterbed you may be interested to know that the very first water-filled beds were used in Persia over 3700 years ago. These waterbeds consisted of goatskins filled with water

The modern waterbed was designed by Neil Arnott and given to St Batholomews hospital by Sir James Paget, in 1873.  Long term bed ridden hospital patients often suffer from pressure ulcers and it was to treat and prevent these bed sores that Arnott desiged the waterbed. It wasn’t until after the invention of vinyl in the 1960’s those waterbeds really became popular.

We’ve come a long way from sleeping on rocks. There are hundreds of choices available. All that’s left is to for you to find the perfect bed to give you a great night’s sleep!

But even the very basic mattress beats sleeping on the hard ground.

In a nutshell it’s the most comfortable sleep surface out there. You’ve probably seen the ads touting that it was developed by NASA. It’s true it was created by the same brilliant people that brought you cordless drills and freeze dried ice cream.

Memory foam is used in all sorts of products from medical equipment to bedding. But what makes memory foam so great?

Simply put, memory foam conforms around any weight that is placed on it. This means when you climb into bed at night those areas that concentrate weight such as hips and shoulders get more cushioning than they would with any other type of bedding.

Another great benefit of memory foam over other bedding is durability. With a traditional mattress the coils and springs wear out over time. Memory foam is just a solid chunk of foam. There’s nothing to wear out. With proper care you will never have to replace a memory foam mattress. When you consider how many beds you might buy in your lifetime compared to the one time cost of memory foam it comes out a bargain!

If you have trouble sleeping at night or are always waking up with a stiff neck, aches and pains then a memory foam mattress could help. Since the foam conforms to your shape you’ll stay nestled in a comfortable sleeping position all night long.

Imagine waking up refreshed every morning instead of groaning and grabbing your lower back. Sounds good doesn’t it?  Memory foam gives your body support exactly where it’s needed helping to relive any pinch points.

So what is memory foam? Simply put it’s the longest lasting most comfortable surface that you’ll ever sleep on. There’s no reason to wait around; check out a memory foam mattress and enjoy a quality night’s sleep

aerobed-premier-classic-with-comfort-zone-coilsWhether you are the one who always has people at your house or you are always on the road traveling, one thing that is vital to have is a place to sleep.

If you’re the destination house, you don’t necessarily want to have beds sitting in every room waiting to be used, year round. And if you’re the traveller, you don’t have room to carry a regular bed with you. So what can you do?

Buy an AeroBed Premier Classic with Comfort Zone Coils which was developed to provide you with extra bedding when you need it.

The AeroBed Premier Classic with Comfort Zone Coils was created to not only be an inflatable bed option for you, but it is can  also  be adjusted to suit people with sleep issues.

With an attached pump, it is built so that you can adjust the pressure in the mattress, meaning that you can make sure that it’s strong enough to support you for a good night’s sleep.

When you need to make an adjustment, it has a Comfort Control Wand that will let you adjust the amount of inflation to get the support you want.

Additionally, the AeroBed Premier Classic with Comfort Zone Coils has been constructed to be able to be used with any of your standard sized sheets. That means you don’t need anything extra or special to make the bed and get ready to go to sleep.

What We Like

  • It’s pretty easy to adjust to various levels of inflation.
  • It comes with a soft  plush mattress cover that can be removed and washed which is very nice from a hygiene standpoint.
  • The mattress inflates and deflates in 60 seconds.
  • Includes a thick washable mattress pad for comfort.
  • When not in use, the mattress can be rolled and stored in the bag that is provided.

Other Things to consider:

  • It is really low to the ground (only about 8 inches deep) so it may be  difficult  for some people to get into.
  • If you are using it constantly it will probably need to be reinflated

leachco-snoogle-total-body-pillowOther Things to Consider:

  • If you are not used to using very firm pillows this pillow may not be a good choice as it may take som time to get used to it.
  • It takes up a lot of the bed because of its size, so if you have a smaller bed or share a smaller bed with someone, it may not be ideal.
