Does Your Sleep Number Change?

Our Sleep Number setting is largely a matter of preference, which can change over time. There are also a few situations where raising or lowering your setting can improve your sleep.

You can benefit from lowering your Sleep Number setting between 5 and 10 if you've been exercising or you share the bed with kids and pets. It can also help if you switch from sleeping on your side to your back.

Raising your Sleep Number setting by 5 or 10 can help if you switch from sleeping on your back to your side. In addition, it can reduce upper back pain for back and side sleepers. 

If you're changing your Sleep Number setting, wait a few days before adjusting again. It's important to give yourself some time to figure out if you like the changes.

Sleep Mattress beds should always be put on a firm surface. You can use a Sleep Mattress base, which was designed specifically for these beds. However, any solid surface bed or bed with slats less than 2 inches apart will work.

Remember that most traditional box springs won't work with a Sleep Number mattress. Fortunately, most bed frames can easily be suited for these beds. You can use a bunkie board or other flat surfaces to create a firm foundation for your mattress.
