Enjoying Classic Comfort with #MyBrunswickBed

After the past few months, I have arrived at the conclusion that a good night's sleep is crucial to maintaining my sanity. When I think about how I used to stay up until the wee hours of the morning designing worksheets on my computer, I can't help but shake my head. Of course, that was during the BC period - Before Children. Even still, once I started blogging back in 2006 while on my first maternity leave, I sacrificed many hours of rest, fine tuning my blog design, routinely posting content and commenting on other blogs. Now, things are different. Now, I can't wait to go to bed and fall asleep on my Douglas mattress. I've had it for over a year and a half, and I love it so much. But I would often feel a little selfish every time my son would lie down next to me and wish for a new mattress of his own. So when Novosbed approached me to test out their new Brunswick spring mattress, I couldn't wait to share the news with my little guy.

Spring Mattress in a Box #MyBrunswickBed

When I learned that the Brunswick is actually a spring mattress, I had to re-read the description a couple of times to make sure I wasn't going crazy. Could Novosbed really manage to find a way to roll up a spring mattress to fit into a box? Surely this is some type of sorcery, I joked. But it's true! Our full size classic mattress arrived in a box that was only slightly taller than my son, making it easier to carry up the stairs to his room.

As with the Douglas, the Brunswick was vacuum sealed and rolled up in heavy duty plastic. Before setting it up, I made sure to read up on the step-by-step breakdown which I found on brunswickbed.ca:

  1. Take the boxed mattress to your room of choice, and open the box.
  2. Slowly tip the package onto its side and pull the box away from the rolled mattress.
  3. Place the rolled mattress onto the bed frame or foundation.
  4. Peel away the outer layer of plastic wrap; fully unroll the mattress.
  5. Open and remove the inner layer of plastic.
  6. Watch it expand, and enjoy!

Once we had unravelled the mattress, I could see that it had springs but I still found myself trying to wrap my head over how they could possibly fit a spring mattress into a box. Please tell me I'm not the only one!

We waited a bit after the mattress had fully expanded and admired the comfy looking padded top layer of the Euro-top cover. I learned that hemp fibres are woven throughout, making it more durable and resilient since hemp has three times the tensile strength as cotton. It also has antimicrobial properties as well.

If you're thinking, "Now that looks like a cushy mattress!" you wouldn't be wrong. Underneath the cover is three layers of varying foam types to help balance support and cushioning. In addition, the two upper-most layers have a cooling gel that allow air and heat to circulate. But I'm sure you're also wondering if it feels like a classic spring mattress. It does! The Brunswick has a medium-firm feel to it, even when both my son and I tried laying on it together. In fact, thanks to the individually wrapped pocketed coils, I could hardly notice he was lying next to me. Which explains why I have unintentionally fallen asleep on his mattress on more than one occasion.

It has been nearly three months and my son still gets that dreamy look on his face when he mentions how much he loves his new mattress. Overall, he and I both love the ultra comfy foam top and appreciate the cooling feature. We also love the edge-to-edge support because, unlike my old mattress, it makes it seem like there is more space to snuggle into when you can curl right up to the edge. You see, as a mom, this is crucial for those moments when I wake up to find an arm across my face and a knee in my back.

Novosbed recognizes that it may take a few weeks to get used to a new sleep surface, which is why there's a 120-night risk free trial, a policy invented by the mattress company's founder. If, between 30 and 120 days, you want to return the mattress for any reason, you can receive a full refund. 

Designed and built in Canada, the Brunswick mattress is made only after you place your order and ships quickly to every province and territory. Plus, shipping is free for 99% of Canadians, with a delivery fee only to remote areas. To try out this premium spring mattress, visit brunswickbed.ca
