Upgrading my Teen to a Queen with Douglas @mydouglasbed

I can not believe my teen has been sleeping on a single bed all this time! No complaints night after night, even though being over 6 foot tall he had very little room. When I was offered the opportunity to check out the new Douglas mattress from Novosbed I knew I needed to have him try it out. Only issue was he is moving out on his own soon. So no sense building a frame until he is in his permanent space. Good thing the Douglas mattress does not require a box spring or frame to be set up. As long as yu have a firm base you are good. You can see suggested frames on their website.

This huge mattress arrived directly to my door step rolled up in a box. We opened the box, placed it on its side and opened the packaging. Within minutes it was inflated and fully expanded. The mattress itself has an easy to zip cover over it. This way if you absolutely needed to clean it, you most likely could.

My son’s first night on this mattress was great! He loved being able to stretch out and when the dog jumped on, he did not even notice. The memory foam makes it so there is no bounce or disruption.

As soon as my son is settled into his own place in a few months, he will be building a frame to fit his mattress. For now it is on the floor and he has no issues with comfort. He also seems more willing to make his bed each morning since he has a bed he loves to sleep on.

 Novosbed is an E-commerce, bed-in-a-box mattress business based in Edmonton, AB. The Douglas site is brand new and recently launched across Canada. They have been one of the highest rated mattresses in North America over the past 7 years.

The Douglas mattress is by far, the most environmentally friendly mattress on the market, and it is also completely Made in Canada (QC & ON).

I love that this affordable mattress can be ordered online and delivered to your home making it easy to shop and super convenient. No pushy sales people and no stress over getting a mattress delivered. Orders usually ship within 3 days and ship direct to you for free. The Queen mattress is valued at $799 making it an affordable option.

My son finds it is super comfy and relieves any aches he has from all of his years playing sports. The Douglas is a medium-firm mattress with balanced support and pressure-point relief for all sleeping positions. It has three layers of high-quality foam delivering active cooling, perfect bounce, and balanced pressure relief every night, all year round.

Douglas’ CoolSense cover and ecoLight cooling gel foam layer absorb more heat with faster dissipation, giving you a cooler sleep. Great for hot Canadian summers or those , who like me, seem to get super hot at night. No longer stay up all night trying to cool down!

Douglas CoolSense™ Cover

A washable cover made with Natural Eucalyptus Fabric™. Inspired by the mountains of Western Canada, the CoolSense™ cover draws moisture away, leading to a cool, dry night.

2” Luxury ecoLight™ Cooling Gel Foam

Made with a 50% smaller carbon footprint, ecoLight™ cooling gel foam is just as durable, responsive, and luxurious as high density memory foam, but won’t retain heat or feel like quicksand.

2” Premium Elastex™ Foam

As durable, supportive, and responsive as natural Latex foam, Elastex™ is made without any of the harmful, allergy-causing chemicals found in many Latex mattresses.

6” Motion Isolation Support Foam

Like millions of tiny pocket-coil springs, Douglas’ support foam eliminates motion transfer between sleepers without sacrificing edge support.

If you are still unsure, you can try the Douglas mattress for yourself and return within 120 nights if not happy. Sizes range from Twin to California King. They accept Paypal and Major credit cards online for easy shopping and payment.

I am confident my son will have many years of good nights sleep ahead of him with his new Queen size mattress.
