Find your sleep solution: Sleep Apnea

couple2

Here at Cuddledown, we’re determined to help people get a better night’s sleep.

From alleviating neck pain, to finding the right pillow for your sleeping position, we’ve tried to come up with a solution for all of your slumber needs.

However, while some of us may toss and turn in the night, for others, difficulty sleeping can be related to a serious medical condition.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, an estimated 18 million American adults have some form of Sleep Apnea, a disorder characterized by frequent pauses in breathing for 10 seconds or longer during sleep.

Left untreated, the disorder can lead to serious problems such as hypertension, heart disease and mood and memory problems.

While many people with Sleep Apnea are forced to install a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine to help keep the airway open to their lungs, we wondered if there were other bedding products that may also help to relieve symptoms.

Thankfully, you responded to our sleep solutions bedding, and let us know which pillows, mattress toppers and other bedding materials worked best.

Check out some of the reviews below, and let us know which bedding works best for you.

For those with Sleep Apnea, and Acid Reflux, one of the main things to consider when selecting bedding to help manage and alleviate symptoms, is proper elevation.

Our Solutions Foam Mattress Topper is specially designed to raise the angle at which you sleep, all the while providing cushioned comfort throughout the night.

To make sure that your sheets fit properly, we recommend our 18″ or 21″ Deep Pocket Fitted Sheets.

According to a customer from Tappahanock, VA the mattress topper helps relieve her allergy, sinus and sleep apnea symptoms.

For additional support, it is suggested that people with Sleep Apnea situate themselves in an upright position to promote airflow to the lungs.

To help keep your head properly aligned and comfortable throughout the night, our Synthetic Fill Contour Cradle Gussetted Pillow is specifically designed for a soft, yet supportive feel.

According to a customer from Wellsboro, PA our Synthetic Fill Contour Cradle Gussetted Pillow is “like sleeping on a cloud!”

How to create a cozy guest bedroom

 

guestroom-1As the leaves begin to change, and the holidays steadily approach, our homes are often opened to friends and family visiting from afar. And what better way to welcome loved ones into the warmth of your home, than with a guest room that is equally stylish and cozy?

To help design the perfect space for your guests, we’ve outlined a plan to create a warm and inviting room from the top down. Check it out!

 

“Home away from home”

If there’s one thing that’s most important above all else when decorating your guest room, it’s to capture that “home away from home” feeling that’s going to keep your guests both comfortable and cozy during their stay.

To help achieve this, you’re going to need a bed that is both snug and stylish. And what better place to start than with a comforter?

Start off by picking something lightweight and warm, that way your guests will fall asleep soundly and stay cozy throughout the night. For an introductory comforter that is great during the colder months, our 600 Fill Power Sateen Colored Down Comforter will do just the trick.

Incorporate cozy materials and inviting patterns

flannelNothing says Fall quite like flannel, and rightfully so. As the weather begins to drop, your guests are going to need that extra warmth to keep them cozy throughout the night.

Try our Lachlan Plaid Flannel Bedding!

The soft texture of flannel will keep your guests snug, and the plaid color is the perfect accompaniment for the changing scenery outside.

A great pillow goes a long way

You’ve got a long day ahead of you, so your guests are going to need to be in their best shape when they wake up the next morning.

Whether you’re going apple picking, or opening gifts, a good night’s rest is crucial to maintaining energy throughout the day, and nothing affects the quality of one’s sleep more than a pillow.

To help make sure your guests aren’t tossing and turning, choose a pillow that is stuffed with comfortable fluffy down, yet supportive enough to maintain the head and spine, such as our 600 Fill Power White Goose Down Damask Stripe Pillow.

It’s all in the details

serving-traySo you’ve got your bed set up, what next? When designing a guest room, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference, and that sentiment especially rings true when it comes to your guests overall hospitality.

Supplying items like toiletries, water and other refreshments are crucial to making your guest comfortable, and just the thing they’ll never forget when they talk about their time with friends and family.

For added convenience, try adding a tray and ice bucket, such as our Leopard Ice Bucket and Tray to keep drinks cold and ready to serve.

 Creating a cozy, memorable guest room is a wonderful way to show appreciation to your most valued visitors.

Pillow Talk: Staff Pillow Favorites

Choosing the right pillow can be one of the most important decisions you make for a better night’s sleep. Everyone knows there’s nothing worse than tossing and turning in the middle of the night, trying to get comfortable, only to wake up with a sore neck the next day. To help cut down on the guess-work of pillow shopping, we collected some candid testimonials from our staff here at Cuddledown about what features they look for in their own personal pillows. From softness and support, to firmness and fill, our staff breaks down which pillows work best for them, and hopefully you as well.

 

nwgross

Norma Wilkins-Gross (President)

My favorite pillow is the 700 Fill Power White Duck Down Double Contour Pillow. I am a side sleeper and a pillow hugger, therefore I have a tendency to sleep with my pillow in a vertical position. The double contour configuration allows me to have the support under my head but still hug my pillow when sleeping. I’ve never slept better.

 

ddyer

Deb Dyer (CEO Marketing)

My favorite is the 450 TC Sateen Synthetic Fill Pillow. I love how the overfilled keep their supportive shape, night after night. I’m mostly a side-sleeper and like the neck support. I’ve given several to family members over the years and they also love them!

 

ecross

Eric Cross (Sales Administrator, Royal River Trading)

800 Fill Power European White Goose Down Sateen Pillow Firm. I love a firmer pillow and this pillow gives me that firmness but is also very soft with the high quality goose down fill.

 

kcrowell

Katrina Crowell (Copywriter)

I like the 700 Fill Power White Duck Down Gusseted Pillow. This pillow is so soft, and at the same time, it offers solid support. I pretty much can only sleep with this pillow now. I’m lost if I forget it while traveling overnight :).

 

jkruzelJessica Kruzel (Web Graphic Designer)

The 700 Fill Power Contour Cradle Gusseted Down Pillow is my favorite because it provides the perfect amount of comfort and support. As a side sleeper I prefer a pillow that won’t sink throughout the night, allowing my head to stay in alignment with my back. I wake up feeling relaxed and rested.

 

kbuthyKerry Buthy (Sales Associate, Royal River Trading)

I personally love the 600 Fill Power White Duck Down Chamber Pillow! You get the softness of down and the support of the 95/5% core!

 

 

jroodeJohn Roode (Assistant Manufacturing Manager)

Sateen King Medium. Absolutely! I like my pillow big and firm. I don’t even care what fill is in them, these are the only pillows allowed on my bed (unless my wife says otherwise).

 

biontaBetsy Ionta (Inventory Manager)

My favorite pillow is the 800 Fill Power Batiste in Queen Soft fill- but I like two :). Pillow snob!

 

 

avintinnerAmy Vintinner (Ecommerce Manager)

I like 1 Quilted Pillow Protector and 2 Stomach 700 Fill Power. I’ll double up the pillows for added support and soft cradling around my head, along with the pillow protector for added protection.

 

jgouldingJoan Goulding (Reconditioning Specialist)

My favorite Cuddledown pillow is the Down Luxury Support Pillow Queen, medium weight because the latex neck support roll fits good under your neck and you can move the down in the chambers.

 

Freeport Retail Store Employees

Laura P: I like the Gusseted Overfill Synthetic Pillow because it’s as firm as using 2 pillows.

Phil K: I like the 50/50 blend in soft because I can fold it and mold it how I want with just enough support.

Chester L: the 50/50 medium- it gives support but is also soft.

Mary H: 700 Fill Power European White Goose Down Sateen Pillow because I sleep on my back and like a soft pillow.

Jenny M: the Synthetic Fill Gusseted Sateen Pillow. It’s really soft and squishy but has enough to it to sleep comfortably.

Ginny L: 450 Thread Count Sateen Synthetic Fill Pillow. I sleep on my back and it’s very comfortable, my whole family uses this pillow.

Cuddledown Product Review of the Week – Faux Fur Throw

This weeks review is from a customer in the San Francisco Bay Area on our Faux Fur Throw.

Cuddledown - Faux Fur Throw

Cuddledown - Faux Fur Throw

I bought the rabbit throw and I’ve never felt a faux fur throw that feels this real. It is soooo luxurious – at such a reasonable cost I’m tempted to buy one of each of the leopard and mink now. I just wish it didn’t have to be dry cleaned – I imagine I could throw it in the washer but then the real fur feeling would probably be washed away. That makes it worth the extra effort – this throw is HEAVENLY !!!

Bubbles Bedding - Cuddledown

Bubbles Bedding - Cuddledown

After more than a year of searching for that perfect combination of color, texture, and style, I finally found it with the Bubbles Bedding and Crinkled Coverlet & Shams. The chocolate and ivory Bubbles bedding & umber Crinkled Coverlet & Shams allow me to mix and match textures and colors and change the look of my room with ease. With our design focus being comfort & gender neutral – these collections are a perfect fit. In addition, laundering was effortless. I had bedding washed, dried (used a front loading commercial washer & dryer on permanent press setting) and back on my bed looking great within a couple hours – no ironing required. What’s not to love? Thank you for ending my search Cuddledown..
