Laura understands the value of a good night’s sleep after sharing her bed over the years with her husband, their two sons when they were little, and a variety of cats. (It’s not for lack of trying that the collie isn’t in the bed every night.) She’s in the market for a nice hybrid mattress that will offer good motion isolation and accommodate both a back sleeper (her) and a side sleeper (her husband, Mo). Every day, Laura dives into the best recommendations for you, whether you are heavy, older, have back pain, or sleep hot. In fact, there’s nothing she loves more than gathering her friends’ sleep preferences and throwing out a couple of recommendations. Sleeping Position: Combination, starting the night on her back Hours Logged Each Night: Asleep by 9 p.m., awake by 6 a.m. (up at 7 on weekends) Always Sleeps With: One pillow under her head; husband, Mo, by her side; and her collie at the foot of their bed Currently Sleeping On: An innerspring, but moving as fast as she can to a bed-in-a-box pillow top
