The Original Cuddle Pillow: Armadillow

Similar to the Cuddle Mattress, which we have featured early this week, the Armadillow comes with slats or “arm tunnels” (as the manufacturer calls it) that allows a person to comfortably rest his arm on the couch or bed, while cuddling next to a loved one.


Mattress Tip: Use Gripper To Keep Futon Mattress from Slipping

Sleeping on a futon mattress can be uncomfortable and frustrating. It can slide out of place, disrupting your sleep and affecting your comfort level.

There’s an easy solution to fix this though, with the use of a gripper. This is like a thin sheet, much like the ones used for floor rugs, which as you know sets in its place. The gripper is perfect for anchoring the mattress and you can buy this from any home store or carpet store. Get the thinner meshed type, as this is the non-stick kind.

3 Things To Consider in Buying Mattress

As everyone always say, the bottomline to picking the mattress perfect for you would have to rely on your own preference and needs from a bed.

Setting aside that consideration, however, what are the things you need to rundown and take into account when choosing a mattress?

First of all, you have to check the mattress’ construction. These days, there are plenty of mattresses that put emphasis on natural body alignment. Foams are engineered so that the mattress won’t hurt your shoulders and back and you can feel your stress points really relaxing. There are plenty of mattresses that offer zones and layers of comfort. Construction matter to comfort, thus it’s the first thing you’d have to check.

I like the very simple design of this loft bed. It’s great for maximizing space and at the same time, very durable for very active kids. The bed features an upper and a lower bunk, with locking casters.
