1 Killer bed on Thu Oct 15, 2009 3:47 pm

We got a new bed recently, himself went down the bed factory shop and got a memory foam topped mattress and new base. I have been suffering from all sorts, ended with having such a bad back which started in the early hours of Monday morning and repeated itself Tuesday morning that I had to take two days off work and get an emergency osteopath appointment!
Then Tuesday night got into bed and it started right away, so I tried to sleep on the old bed in the spare room, and when I did get a little sleep eventually I woke without the back pain.
Since not sleeping on the new bed my sinuses have cleared, and I also had been coming out in rashes which seem to be clearing.

So I am back on the previous mattress, which himself has moved back into our room, and it is too hard so I get other problems, like hip pain - can't win. He bought that one down the bed factory shop too! Hoping that a topper will solve it!

So it seems I am allergic to memory foam, or the new duvet, as well as the bad back unless it is all a spooky coincidence of course!

What you're saying Cazzy doesn't surprise me. Something similar has happened to someone I know & they have gone back to their old mattress. I wouldn't touch a memory foam mattress knowing how this person has suffered.

Sorry, you've had problems with yours. Doesn't look like they suit everyone.

Hope you soon start to feel better. Sending you ((hugs))

The mattress we have is a mirco coil Slumberland & it's heaven! bought it off QVC many moons ago & it's still going strong.

We have a latex mattress which is similar to the memory foam but is Hypoallergenic as hubby suffers with all kinds of allergies. We also have a silk duvet and silk filled pillows for the same reason. Hope you manage to find a mattress that suits you soon Carol.

Sounds horrendous Cazzy, I hope you get sorted soon.

Wow - silk filled pillow - I did'nt know such things existed!

They are fab but the silk filled duvet is something else, it's really warm but so thin and it just snuggles around you. It's so nice that after we got ours the kids kept nagging us that they wanted one too. I ended up promising them that when they were dry at night they could have one too. Cost me a small fortune in the end but we all have them now.

Ellie was ill on hers the other week when she had a sickness bug and she had to do with out it for a couple of weeks while it was at the dry cleaners. When I eventually got it back for her she hugged and kissed it she'd missed it that much!

They sound great - perhaps I will have to look into them next time we get a new duvet.

You poor thing Cazzy...really hope you get it sorted out soon - nothing beats a good nights sleep. Smile
We have a memory foam topper and we think it is fabulous and I don't have a sore back now when I wake up. Smile
Fe - my mum had that type of duvet too and she loved it. Smile We will be getting one too when ours needs replacing. Wink

I need a non memory foam topper I have decided! I would luuuuurve a silk filled duvet, where did you get that? That is my kind of natural and does it wash too?
Gez I am glad I am not the only one if you see what I mean, not wishing it on anybody else!

Now many years ago I was an Avon lady for about a year, the leader who recruited me was very excited to have someone who resembled the TV lady in the ad, as she said most didn't (those were the days, wouldn't pass for her now), and I had problems with some makeups even then, so I tried the Avon hypoallergenic makeup while going on my "rounds" one evening, most people thought I was wearing makeup when I didn't anyway! Oh Boy was that a mistake, I came out in sores from it, so I am a little sceptical about hypoallergenic products, don't get me started on the jewellery!

Cazzy, the duvets are from http://www.gingerlily.co.uk/ you don't need to wash them you just air them once/twice a year. You can get silk duvet covers for them too which are machine washable. I only sent Ellie's duvet off to be dry cleaned because she was sick on it. They are not the cheapest duvets on the market but they are so worth it.

Thanks Fe,

Ooh er I would have to have washable ones, what a shame! With two dogs who sleep in our room we need to be able to wash them, I like to freshen them up too.
I will take a look though as they sound gorgeous.

I have had a look and they do sound interesting, might have to splash out. I see it says they can be professionally laundered at 30 degrees, I wonder if that indicates they can be washed, the cot one can, could be the size. My machine will take a double duvet, I am washing the new one right now, and the tumble dryer will too. It doesn't sound like they would need washing often as you say, only in case of accident!

They are very thin Cazzy so they would fit easily in your washing machine if an ordinary one will. Sometimes I think they put these restrictions on just in case you wash it at the wrong temperature and ruin it and then try to blame the company as they said it was machine washable. If they say dry clean only and the dry cleaners stuff it up you would sue them instead of the company that make them. They aren't daft are they?!
I would think if the cot ones can then the duvets should be ok too. Just make sure the temperature is cool enough. Either that or ban the dogs from the bed! lol

It says washing isn't recommended very often for the cot ones! I wish the dogs were sleeping downstairs as the first ones did, Hubby got them upstairs by trickery, we were having the kitchen done and the floor was up and all sticky underneath from the black glue so he said they can't stay down here, they can come upstairs until it is done, and now he won't put them downstairs.
These two have only ever slept upstairs, but one of them has a habit of jumping on the bed and trying to get in between us and will spend the night if he can get away with it! They both jump on the bed when they go up in the day with anyone, hard habit to break.
I think I should sleep in my own dog free room, then I could have what I wanted! We do have two empty rooms now.

I thought I would search for silk filled duvets, and I have found some that are the same as yours for care, one site that says you must never wash, dry clean or shake it hard, and one that says put out in the sun, or professionally clean but it can be washed at 40 degrees with Ecover liquid for wool and silk.
Confused?
