Getting a good night’s sleep is so important to me so I’m sure it comes as no surprise when I say I’ve been struggling with the lack of sleep since becoming a Mum. I knew it was going to be difficult but I don’t think I was quite ready for being up every 2 hours for the last 14 weeks – and counting. As well as trying to run my business, keep up with friendships, family, a relationship other than Mum and Dad, maintain a social media presence and spend every waking moment doing all I can for Arthur. Then add global pandemic to that list – it’s been tough – but that’s a story for another day.
I feel like I spend half my life propped up against the headboard of the bed, whether that’s feeding Arthur during the night, attempting to “work from home” or that rare moment I get to sink into a book whilst Arthur is sleeping soundly next to me. With comfort in mind we’ve recently upgraded our pillows to the gorgeous TEMPUR ® Comfort Pillow. They’re like sleeping on a cloud, which is understandable considering they’ve been developed by NASA. TEMPUR® created the first memory foam pillows and mattresses back in the 1970s, the mattress material originally developed to absorb G force pressure during space flight – to provide an “Out Of This World Sleep Experience”. The TEMPUR ® Comfort Pillow has really helped me make the most out of the little sleep I do get – I find it so much easier to drift off after waking up to feed Arthur multiple times a night.
Although difficult with a newborn; I’ve been trying to stick to a bedtime routine as much as possible. I was very much a night owl before having Arthur but now I’m really starting to enjoy an earlier bedtime and having some time to wind down on an evening. I go up to bed with Arthur around 8pm when he is due his last evening feed, I’ll then try and catch up on magazines, read a book, maybe even paint my nails or do a face mask, trying to keep away from my phone and screens as much as I can. I try to get to sleep around 10:30pm as I never know how long it’s going to be until I’m up again. When Arthur starts sleeping for more than 3 hours that really will be an “Out Of This World Sleep Experience” but for now I’m going to appreciate all the sleep I get – with the added comfort of the TEMPUR ® pillow.
TEMPUR ® have offered my readers the discount code TEMPUR105 for £100 off any mattress (including some that are already discounted and sale items) and an extra £5 off TEMPUR ® pillows. This code is valid until the 20th April. If you’ve been considering a TEMPUR ® mattress I would suggest booking a telephone consultation with your local store – although stores are currently closed, they can go through the options with you and find you the mattress/pillow most suited to your needs. They also offer a 100 night trial.
What is your favourite part of your evening routine?
Until next time,

My sleep routine has been awful, especially after our home was damaged and we have displaced. I will have to try these pillows. Anything to improve my sleep.
Oh My, you really hit the spot, if we can not get a good night sleep, the whole day’s energy changes. For that reason I particularly think that a good mattress is not an expense, it is an INVESTMENT! Thanks for offering the discount.
I have only heard good things about Tempur and I am in the market for pillows so will definitely look into them.
These sound like lovely pillows. I really need to replace all of our bedding and these would be a great addition.

Love this and it is so important to find the right mattress and pillows for you and your body type as good nights sleep is critical to your overall health and well-being. I will for sure check them out when I need a new mattress.

I have been looking for a new pillow and I think this would be good for me. I get the worst neck cramps when sleeping so I think this would do the trick.

I own a memory foam pillow and love it. Good night sleep is so important 🙂
We need some new pillows. Ours are so uncomfortable and make our necks hurt.
Those pillows sound dreamy! Could really use something like that to help me be more comfortable in the night. I’ve never heard of Tempur before, I’ll check them out!
