Which Mattress Is Best for Pregnancy?
It can be difficult to get a good night's sleep during pregnancy. The body of pregnant women will have obvious changes, such as sensitivity to noise and smell, aches and pains, and other symptoms that may disrupt sleep. For those who are about to become mothers, getting a restful sleep is essential.
If there is sleep disturbance in the late pregnancy, it will have a negative impact on childbirth and delivery. Therefore, when choosing a mattress, the first thing that should be considered is to help pregnant women get a good night's sleep, reduce fatigue caused by pregnancy, and bring comfort after the baby is born.
It is usually recommended that pregnant women sleep on their sides, especially in the second and third trimesters. Some women may find that when they sleep on their side, their mattress is not as comfortable as when lying on their back or stomach sleeping.
In addition to the firmness of the mattress, the ability off the mattress to isolate motion and adjust the temperature is also a factor that needs to be considered when choosing a suitable mattress for pregnant women.
Choosing a suitable mattress will help relieve some of the pain and discomfort caused by pregnancy, and at the same time reduce the sleep disorder of sharing a bed with a partner. In this article, we will tell you what pregnant women need to consider when buying a mattress.
Four features need to be considered
Natural materials: Although healthy and environmentally friendly products are more likely to attract consumer interest, many mattresses are still made of petrochemical products, toxic adhesives, pesticides, chemical flame retardants, etc. Volatile organic compounds are related to cancer, organ damage and endocrine disorders. People with allergies and breathing problems, as well as pregnant women, should especially avoid using mattresses that contain toxins.
Cooling technology: More than half of pregnant women are affected by night sweats, which are caused by hormonal imbalances during pregnancy. A common complaint of old memory foam mattresses is that they "sleep hot". The current high-end memory foam mattresses are improved on this basis. The Sweet Night brand uses a special cooling technology to maintain the air circulation, so that you will not be too hot at night. Generally speaking, firmer mattresses are not so hot. People who are prone to heat are advised to look for low-density memory foam, gel foam, moisture wicking cover, and latex foam hybrid materials.
Firmness: Most pregnant women get up three to five times a night to go to the bathroom. If you choose an ultra-soft memory foam bed, getting up will not be easy. A medium-hard mattress is a better choice. It retains a soft enough comfort layer to relieve pressure on the hips and lower back, but it is strong enough that you will not feel like you "sink" into the bed. Another good option is to buy a mattress compatible with an adjustable bed frame, which allows you to sit up automatically, allowing you to go out as easily as possible. Memory Foam & Inner Springs Hybrid Mattress will be the best choice, and the characteristics of motion isolation, even if the partner gets up, will not affect the pregnant woman's sleep.
Memory foam: According to related news reports, pregnant women should sleep to the left to prevent excessive pressure on the liver due to weight gain. The memory foam on the top of the mattress will provide a softer surface for side sleepers.
Which type of mattress is good for pregnancy?
We will analyze to you the advantages and disadvantages of the three mattresses: foam, latex, and hybrid.
Foam Mattresses - Foam mattresses usually have multiple layers of foam and/or memory foam. Foam can easily conform to the shape of the body, relieve pressure points and promote spinal alignment. The resilience and adjustability of memory foam give pregnant women a tailor-made feeling. However, foam mattresses tend to keep warm, so people who suffer from night sweats should consider mattresses filled with cooling gel or graphite, or mattresses with an inflatable layer that helps dissipate heat.
Latex Mattresses - Latex mattresses can be made of natural or synthetic latex, or a mixture of both. Natural latex can fit the body shape and relieve the sleep pressure of pregnant women. Compared with foam mattresses, this type of mattress tends to have better temperature regulation and minimal off-gassing, which is a good choice for pregnant women.
Hybrid Mattresses - Hybrid mattresses combine foam or latex comfort systems with innerspring support cores. The comfort layer is usually very thick and can provide adequate stress relief for pregnant women. The coil adds airflow and support to the mattress. At the same time, the motion isolation feature of the hybrid mattress allows pregnant women to sleep well all night without being disturbed by their partners.
Pregnancy is the best time to upgrade your mattress. A comfortable sleeping surface can help you get quality sleep during the months of pregnancy.
Choosing a mattress is personal, but all quality models you consider should have a longer trial period, positive customer reviews, and a longer warranty period than your pregnancy.
