Are you struggling with getting sleep after having a baby? I’m sharing a few tips and tricks for better sleep after having a baby that you absolutely need to know.
Getting a good night’s rest after having a baby is nearly impossible. After 3 kids I’ve lost hours and hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation was my middle name for years. I’m practically a pro at napping and finding pockets of time to sneak in some sleep. After having Trevor, I had to revamp my space to make sure I was getting the quality sleep I deserved when I was actually able to sleep. If you’re a mama like me and struggling with sleeping, I’ve got the solution to getting more sleep. If you’re on the path to living your best life after having that baby, I’m sharing my secret for better sleep.
The Secret to Better Sleep After Having a Baby
Would you guys believe it if I told you that we’ve been sleeping on the same mattress for the last 10 years? I know better but life comes at you fast and before you know it your mattress is 10 years old. Here’s a few tips for getting the sleep you deserve after having a baby.
Create a relaxing space
The first step to getting a good night’s rest is creating a calm, relaxing environment in your bedroom. Removing any distractions from your room is a major help.
Grab some reading material
I love diving into a good book to unwind before bed. Reading is so relaxing and it can help you wind down after a crazy hectic day.
Play some music or meditate
Playing music or a meditation while you’re sleeping can be soothing and calming. Of course you’ll want to play it at a low level so you can still hear baby. I always feel so much more relaxed in the morning if I listen to music or a meditation while I’m falling asleep.
Get a new mattress
Remember I told you how our mattress was 10 years old? It was definitely time for it to go. After 3 kids, we needed something new that wasn’t going to kill our backs. We opted for a new Avocado mattress and let me tell you how amazing it is. The Avocado mattress is a green mattress made from non-toxic, natural, and organic material. The mattresses are handmade eco-luxury organic certified and made in California.
Ordering Your Avocado Mattress
Ordering our mattress was super simple. This was my first time ordering a mattress online and I was a little nervous but because the Avocado mattress had such great reviews, I wasn’t hesitant. Navigating the site to choose a mattress was easy. There were lots of size options to choose from but for us, we were set on a King size mattress. When you order your green mattress you’re given the option of adding a pillow top. We opted not to add the additional pillow top and are super happy with that decision. Honestly I don’t think you can go wrong either way.
The great thing about ordering your Avocado green mattress is that there’s a 1-year trial period so if for some reason it doesn’t work out, you can simply return it. Free shipping and a 25-year warranty is also included which is absolutely amazing.
Our new Avocado mattress is all latex which is so amazing! No innersprings are seriously the way to my heart. The great thing about having no innersprings is that it’s 100% biodegradable. Our old mattress was a pillow top with innersprings and a few years in let’s just say that both of our backs weren’t the same anymore.
We’ve had our new mattress for a few weeks now and I can really tell the difference in the quality of my sleep. I feel more comfortable at night, I’m well rested when I wake up, and my back isn’t killing me. I’m looking forward to years of better sleep with my Avocado mattress.
