Mattress shopping can be fun. However, after laying on a mattress for years you become accustomed to your current brand. Even though your new mattress may be everything you dream of it does still have to be broken in. Recently, I was able to try the Yoga Bed Unplugged and I will tell you the first night I had so many complaints about it that I just knew it was a mattress that I would never be able to say anything nice about. However, after “breaking in the mattress” I am now able to see some of the good qualities and today figured it would be a good time to discuss the tips for breaking in a new mattress. Now let’s get started.
Just unboxed my @yogabed can’t wait to try it out. #review coming to #giveaways4mom soon. #mattressreviews #yogabed

Give It Time
When switching mattresses, it can take anywhere from a week to a couple of months for you to fully break your bed in.
When I originally jumped on the memory foam mattress bandwagon I was able to break in my first mattress within 2 weeks. However, the Yoga Bed Unplugged I have had about two weeks now and I still have not broken it in 100%.
Why You Must Break in Your New Mattress
You must think, once you have been sleeping on a mattress for years, it has adjusted to your body, sleeping patterns, and the materials have been stretched to your liking. When you first purchased your prior mattress it may have been a rough couple of weeks getting used to it and the same thing will occur with your new mattress.
The best part is if you do like memory foam mattresses and were going to give the Yoga Bed Unplugged a try, you have 180 days to test it out and if you don’t like it you can return it. It also comes with a 10-year warranty so you can feel confident knowing that your investment will last you for years to come.
Let the Mattress Breathe
When going with a memory foam mattress such as the Yoga Bed Unplugged, it is suggested after unboxing the mattress that you let it breathe for a few hours before making your bed or sleeping on it.
The good news is, since my last unboxing mattress experience I have gotten better and I found unboxing the Yoga Bed Unplugged to be super easy. However, this could be because this mattress is a lot lighter than the first memory foam mattress I tried.
Spend Time on Your Mattress
While breaking in the new mattress make sure you spend as much time on it as possible so it gets used to your weight and body type. When first breaking in my Yoga Bed Unplugged, I began working from bed again and spent time reading throughout the day in bed as well.
Walk on It
While this may sound a little silly, walking or lightly jumping on your bed can help you break it in a little easier. Just don’t go too crazy on it.
My Experience with the Yoga Bed Unplugged
Now that I have shared some tips for breaking in a new mattress, I want to share my experience with the Yoga Bed Unplugged, in case this is one of the mattress brands that you are considering.
I will start by saying that compared to my old mattress and Novosbed, this mattress is lighter and smaller. I didn’t like that it sat so low even with the box spring on the bed, but I did enjoy handling a lighter mattress.
The first night sleeping on the mattress was rough for me as I found the mattress to be overly firm. However, after a week of laying on the mattress, it did seem to loosen up a bit. The best part is, unlike Novosbed, it does come with edge support.
In the end, I ended up asking my mom to try out the Yoga Bed Unplugged because she was in the market for a new mattress and she suffers from back pain. She, on the other hand, loved the mattress after the first night but also thought it was a bit low even with her box spring. To remedy the issue, she ended up putting a second mattress under the Yoga Bed Unplugged and that fixed her issue right away.
Therefore, I would recommend the Yoga Bed Unplugged to those who want a lightweight mattress that is on the firm side or those who suffer from back pain.
