Don’t you just love climbing into bed with your beloved after a long day and drifting off into a peaceful slumber side by side? I think it’s one of the best things about being married! However, there can be a few things to discuss to achieve perfect slumber for both parties in the sack…who sleeps on what side, who’s closest to the window, how many pillows, room temperature etc..
Knowing what kind of sleeper you are can be very helpful in resolving newlywed bed spats.
The Inferno - this newlywed is like a living heat rock that pumps out heat all night long
The Ice Cube - this partner is cold all over all night and may need an electric blanket to be comfortable
The Bulldozer - this individual starts out comfortable, gets hot in the middle of the evening and then bulldozes their covers onto their partner to cool off
The Hog - unglamorous as it sounds, they’re out there, the people who slowly accumulate ALL of the covers and leave their spouses freezing
Snow Toes – this spouse is toasty everywhere but their feet, and looks to warm up those toes on their partner
The Sweater - this is usually an Inferno forced to sleep under a thick down comforter, resulting in a lot of perspiration
Have you identified yourself and your partner? If so, you can start to see how two radically different sleep types might have some trouble getting a good night’s rest in the same bed. For example, if you’re both inferno sleepers that radiate heat as soon as your heads hit the pillow, than you can probably agree on sheets and maybe a light blanket. If one of you is an inferno, but the other is not there will need to be some compromise. Layering on blankets for the colder sleeper can result in the inferno partner sweating throughout the night and creating more laundry for morning.
