Sharing a bed with a toddler is like sharing your bed with a drunk octopus looking for its car keys!
Co-sleeping is something that we firmly said that we wont let it happen to us. Nothing wrong with it, if that’s your jam. We just wanted to still be able to read a book in bed or scroll aimlessly on Instagram whilst pretending we are watching a movie. For the first two years we got away with it. We even got smug about it. We would praise our little cherub on how good she is for going into her own bed and sleeping blissfully all by her self for eleven hours straight.
Cue the last few months when everything blew up in our faces.
Morning will find me and my husband squished on the edge of the bed, whilst Queen Sophia will starfish to her hearts content. Then, we would compete on who’s back is worse than the others after waking. I usually win, as my lower back and shoulders have been in shambles after the pregnancy.
When an opportunity came along to work with Leesa and get to try their premium luxury mattress, i got very excited. I slept once on a foam mattress, a few years ago in snazzy hotel and i still remember fondly that sleep experience. It felt like i slept on a cloud. I hoped that comfortable feeling might be recreated at home and my back will get better.
“We’ve founded Leesa with a simple goal: to help people sleep better. “
The American born Leesa mattress has a unique combination of three high quality foam layers that adjust to your body to offer optimum support and comfort for all body shapes, firmness preferences and sleeping styles – which they call a Universal Adaptive Feel.
Leesa.ie operates exclusively online and offer a 100-night risk-free trial period.
They believe that sleeping on a mattress in the comfort of your own home is the only way to truly know if it’s right for you. If the mattress isn’t working out for you at any point in the first 100 nights of receiving the mattress, all you have to do is get in touch with them, so they can arrange the collection and donation of your mattress.
Giving back is also built into the company’s DNA. They donate one mattress to charitable causes, for every ten sold. Leesa Sleep has donated over 30,000 mattresses so far worldwide to those in need.
The Leesa Mattress comes with a 10 year warranty.
We choose the Double Leesa Mattress size (135x190x25cm) from Leesa.ie and it fit our bed measurements perfectly. There are no physical stores. You just choose the appropriate size from the list and order it online. It is then made to order and delivered by courier in 6-9 business days.
I was actually so pleasantly surprised when i received the mattress! It was neatly packaged in a tall box. Once you open it, you roll the mattress and place it on the bed. It takes approximately 48 hours to expand to its full potential. However, its perfectly fine to sleep on it just after a couple of hours. Just bare it mind that your experience will get even better in a short period of time.
How did we sleep?
I can only use one word to describe our comfort levels: AMAZING!
Even on the nights when our little girl climbs up in the bed and we are all cosied up, i can still find my comfortable spot and not wake up completely stiff and sore. I didn’t think it will change the quality of our sleep as much as it has. It makes lying down incredibly comfortable. Which is terribly dangerous for my productivity levels!
Leesa Mattress seems to absorb movement so much better than my old mattress. This means you don’t feel it as much when the other person is tossing and turning.
Also the design of the Leesa mattress is very sleek and elegant. For instance i appreciate not having those horrible buttons that i always seemed to feel trough the sheets.
I found the whole process of ordering online from the Irish Leesa.ie site very easy and straight forward. The delivery time is short and if you need to store the mattress before buying a bed for example, the neat box makes it very easy.
Leesa has kindly given me a discount code for my readers, just in case anybody needs to make a purchase. When you use the code YOURBEAUTY on leesa.ie, you will get a €100 discount against the price of your mattress.
