I find my bed to be supremely comfortable. It has taken years of sleep study to get to this point. For anyone interested in duplicating this divine setup, here’s everything you need.

Bed Frame

  • Easy to put together
  • Looks great with most rooms
  • Inexpensive
  • Padded corners for shin protection


  • Less chemicals in the mattress. I don’t need to worry about dropping a cigarette when I fall asleep.
  • Comfortable and sleeps cool
  • Inexpensive

Foam Topper

  • Provides a soft coushion on top without the sinking into the abyss feeling.
  • Inexpensive
  • Padded corners for shin protection

Waterproof Mattress Protector

  • Protects your bed in case the ChiliPad leaks.
  • Inexpensive
  • Doubles as protection for the infant poop explosions


This is the pièce de ré·sis·tance. There’s a series of small tubes that circulate water through the mattress pad. This can be used like a thermostat to set the mattress from 55-110 degrees F. 

  • Hot to cold settings with dual zones on larger sizes
  • Energy efficient
  • Useful in all climates
  • Look for sales around valentines day, Christmas, etc.


  • Supremely comfortable
  • Inexpensive
  • Padded corners for shin protection


  • Adjustable 
  • Throw it in the dryer to rejuvinate it

Body Pillow

  • Can be used as a bed barrier to divide sides
