There’s a lot to love about having a partner in bed with you. But while the cuddles and touching are great, sleeping with another person isn’t always comfortable when you consider the annoying snoring, bed shaking, and stealing of the covers.
How to Sleep Better with a Partner in Your Bed
If you’re wondering how to sleep better with a partner in your bed, here are a few pointers that might help:
Use Separate Covers
If there were a class on how to share a bed, it would teach each partner not to be a cover hog. But since there’s no such thing, the next best way to keep from waking up freezing is to each have your own blankets. That way both of you stay warm all night long and don’t wake up mad at each other.
Buy a Bigger Bed
If you’re sleeping on a queen bed and either of you tosses and turns, chances are one of you ends up being kicked or waking up with your partner’s hand over your face. Sometimes a queen bed just isn’t enough for sleeping couples. Upgrading to a king size bed will give you both a lot more room to move.
Consider Foam to Reduce Motion Transfer
Sleeping with another person in your bed can be difficult when you wake up each time your partner rolls over. A bouncy bed is not ideal for couples because it transfers any motion from one side of the bed to the other. Mattresses made with memory foam, latex or gel absorb movement instead of transferring it, allowing each of you to sleep more peacefully throughout the night.
If either of you sleeps hot, consider a hybrid mattress that contains some coils and some foam. You’ll get the benefits of motion absorbing memory foam, but will sleep a little cooler since coils allow air to flow through.
Buy an Adjustable Base to Reduce Snoring
If you’re at your wit’s end not knowing how to sleep through a snoring partner, you’re not alone. Snoring is one of the biggest complaints that couples have when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. If you’ve tried earplugs, having your partner roll over on his side, and everything else you can think of, you might want to consider an adjustable base.
Being able to raise the head of the bed can reduce snoring greatly because it allows the airway to stay open, reducing that vibrating sound that snoring makes when the airway flap closes over the throat. If you have any back pain or digestion problems, an adjustable base can help relieve those symptoms as well. Less snoring for him, more comfort for you; it’s a win-win!
