kids sharing a bed

Both myself and my eldest son Oliver have super sensitive skin, which is often aggravated in the heat, especially on hot summer nights so even though I use a low tog duvet and hypo-allergenic bedding, I can still find it difficult to sleep especially in the summer.

I usually find myself waking up several times during the night due to overheating and irritated skin, particularly in heatwaves so I’m always on the look out for new products that might help me get some more, much needed zzz’s.

When I was approached to review Airstream Mattress Topper by Slumberdown I jumped at the chance, as did my kids (literally) then tucked themselves into bed, together in mine and my husband Peter’s bed.

The boys have a double bed in each of their bedrooms too and I’ll be picking up one each for their beds too!

Cute.

And now for the science bit-

The new Slumberdown Topper is proven to be significantly cooler than a traditional memory foam topper due to its patented Airstream technology which is combination of special fibres that prevent a build up of heat, plus the Airstream® mesh side panels which provide a constant supply of clean, fresh air.

Having used and reviewed Slumberdown products before such as their anti-allergy bedding, I was excited to trial the mattress topper as I’ve always found their innovative products aid a better nights sleep. And I’m pleased to report that the Airstream Mattress Topper also delivered!

The topper was significantly cooler than my old memory foam mattress and whilst a full night’s sleep is pretty much impossible with a restless kids by night, I never once woke up due to overheating or irritable skin.

I was cool and comfortable all night long and found it easy to get back to sleep after being woken up my Xander having a nightmare (usually it take a couple of hours to fall back asleep on hot nights!).

The topper is also non-allergenic, which again is perfect for mine and Oliver’s sensitive skin.

And not only was the mattress cooling, it was also incredibly comfortable too.

I’m a bit like Princess and the Pea and find it difficult to sleep on hard mattresses, but I had no such problem with the soft but supportive Slumberdown Airstream Mattress Topper!

The topper is 6cm thick so it is deep enough to support the body’s contours and keep my spine nice and straight all night long. It adapts to any body shape whilst also allowing for easy movement.

Since switching to the topper I’ve found myself waking up every morning feeling 100% refreshed & ready to take on the world. I’ve literally NEVER slept better.

It got the kids’ seal of approval too-

The topper comes with elasticised corner straps so it is easily fitted to the mattress and is held firmly in place – even when 2 wriggly bambinos decide to join us in bed.

The cover can also be removed & washed at 40° and can be tumble dried too!

We made a little gif style video of it ‘magical’ unfolding for you!

    Air mattress is always convenient and easy to pack when it comes to mobile transportation. It is one of my must have gears on camping. I personally love king size air mattress. I am also strongly believe that a good sleep can contribute to a fascinating journey. Thanks for sharing and please keep it up

    Lovely bed. Personally, I always love air mattress. It is an essential gear which cannot be lacked of for every camping trip. Actually, this January 2017, I plan to go hiking with my friends in a group of 6. Any suggestion on a gear which I should bring?
    Thank you for sharing this and please keep it up.

    I really agree with everything you said! We shouldn’t just adjust our lifestyle to cope with sleeping dilemmas but we must also look into the very mattress in which we are sleeping! I think they go hand in hand in giving us the best sleeping experience. That’s the reason why we should give importance and attention to both!

    This bedding would be perfect for my hubby, who is allergic to dust, has an asthma and very sensitive skin. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, this sounds fab! R struggles with heat in summer and I’m generally a rubbish sleeper. Plus we also have our Oliver coming in in the night who is like a radiator. That’s a very reasonable price too!

      Natalie, this mattress is amazing, my kids get into our bed nearly every night and we all sleep so well, it’s definitely the mattress that has made the difference, I cannot recommend this enough and will be getting it for all the beds in the house now x

    Ooh this sounds really nice and comfy without being overbearing. I can’t sleep when it gets too hot and this sounds ideal and still really comfy.
