My partner and I are thinking of moving in together. We love the closeness of sleeping in the same bed, but I am a very light sleeper and find myself awake most of the night because of his active sleep pattern, complete with shouting and elbowing me in his sleep.
Besides sleeping in separate beds, which we will consider as a last resort, do you have any advice on us both getting a restful night of sleep in the same bed? -Caitlyn
Along with the separate bed arrangement, we also have a post about:
- Sleeping together when one partner suffers from insomnia
- Sleeping together when one partner is hot and the other is cold
- What it’s like not having the same sleeping patterns as everyone else
But we haven’t covered the battle of heavy vs light… yet.
Springless mattresses? White noise machines? Pillow barriers? What are your sleeping hacks for light and heavy sleep arrangements?
