My husband was complaining that he was waking with his nose stopped up and hot. Both of us were waking with stiff joints.
I bought a mattress protector in case dust mites were the cause of the blocked nose. I bought a mattress topper for the stiff joints with a gel layer that is supposed to disperse the heat. I thought these two things would solve the problems a lot cheaper than the new mattress I would like to have.
I put the mattress topper under the mattress protector because one of the reviews said it likes to slip off the bed. The topper wasn't squishy the way I thought it would be. Today I moved it on top of the protector but under the fitted sheet. It didn't try to roll us back out of bed. Maybe it was a good deal after all.
