    What do you sleep on?

    We just bought a new bed. It's a memory foam mattress with coils inside, known as a "hybrid". We also took the plunge and bought an "adjustable foundation", meaning you can tip up the head and legs with a remote control, like a hospital bed.

    I'm trying to figure out what's the real purpose of these adjustable bases. You can't really leave them elevated when it's time for sleep if you sleep on your side. The bed has to be flat. It seems to me they're only good for watching TV or maybe a little back stretching after a long day. Anyone have experience with adjustable beds (other than the kind that requires putting quarters in the slot )? Do you sleep with them elevated?

    Also, we found choosing a mattress daunting. Memory foam, hybrid memory foam/coil, innerspring, air, etc. We couldn't believe how prices varied between models and brands. It's not hard to spend $10k on a bed! What do you use and how do you like it? So far, we are really liking our memory foam hybrid from Serta.

    I haven't purchased one yet, but I'm considering it. With a herniated disk in my lower back, six compressed disks in my neck, and some old wrestling injuries, there are nights when I can't lay flat. Having something like that could save some wear and tear on my recliner, especially when I reach "official" retirement age!

    Purchased the adjustable bases when purchasing the Tempur-Cloud mattresses. At first I didn't think I liked the adjustable base but over time it has become a much appreciated purchase. I used to only sleep on my side however after finding different positions with the adjustable base that were comfortable for watching tv I soon started falling asleep faster than usual and would wake the following morning in the same position. Was odd at first being as I never slept all night without some tossing/turning to lay on one side or the other. IMHO the massage functions are a bit of a gimmick but other than that, I like the adjustable base a lot. I like the mattress as it is very comfortable but like you mentioned there are so many choices it is daunting. I often wonder if choosing something else would have been even better.

    Sleep number here but not adjustable base. Like it. Thinking about a new one that’s has the adjustable base. Expensive but ours is getting pretty old.

    I have a bad shoulder, and the other is getting arthritic. About half the time, I sleep in the recliner, which allows me to sleep on my back, with my head raised and relieve the pain in my shoulders. Some people who have difficulty breathing find that raising the head helps; and as mentioned before, it helps the acid reflux tremendously.

    I was going to say what he did if you have GERD, acid reflux, you want to elevate the head , so you could put blocks under the headboard legs or raise mattress electric.

    Some people advocate sleeping with your head elevated for medical reasons: medical problems like sleep apnea, or to reduce snoring.

    When I was a kid, and later as an adult I toured Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Both times the tour guides talked about his short bed, saying it was because he and many people of the time slept in a semi-sitting position.

    We have a bed with head and knee adjustments. It was a novelty to play with at first, but it has stayed flat for years for sleeping.

    The only time the head gets elevated now is when my wife changes the sheets. Elevating the head basically makes the bed length shorter, so it is easier to put on the bottom fitted sheet. It will stretch the sheet so tight that you can bounce a quarter on it, like how we were supposed to make up our racks in the Navy.
