A Good Night’s Rest for Many Years to Come with Sleep Number M9 Memory Foam Series (#SleepNumber)


sleep number bed

It was with much anticipation that a m9 Memory Foam Series Sleep Number bed was delivered to my house a little over two weeks ago.  I had performed my research in store.  I knew my husband and I were in for a life altering experience.  Our current mattress, at only eight years old, had a definitive “hump” in the middle and permanent impressions that my husband named our “Action Hero poses”.  Not exactly what you want from a mattress.

I was eager to find my perfect Sleep Number number.  With two remotes (they are wireless) my husband and I could each find the setting that worked best for us.  My in-store experience made me believe that a relatively low number would be my preferred setting.  The knowledgeable employees that installed the mattress in our home warned me that it could take a number of days to find a number that truly worked for me.

That first night I set our bed at the 35 setting on both sides.  I was fairly confident I knew what my setting should be.  Um…yeah.   I’m not going to lie, that first night was rough.  Not only was the bed soft, but it was also foam.  Memory foam.  Sure, I already had a memory foam pillow, but I had certainly never slept on an entire bed of memory foam.  Adjusting to the memory foam along with a personal incorrect setting of 35 made for an uncomfortable night’s sleep.

The next night, I increased our settings to 45, as my husband too needed some adjusting.  Still too soft.  The next night?  We tried 50.  Hmmm..still not quite there.  The next night?  Seventy.  Yes, we took it all the way to 70.  Now we are talking.  I slept at this setting for a number of nights and then I decided I wanted just a tad bit more, so I changed it to 75.  And that is the setting I have been at for almost two weeks now.  At this point in my experience, I consider the bed mine.  It’s comfy, it’s cozy, and it’s just right.  And it appears I am not the only one with this experience, as my husband announced to me the other day while reading in bed, “I love this bed”!

So now we are comfortable.  Now we are set.  I have officially found my Sleep Number setting.  But of course, what makes Sleep Number beds a cut above the rest is that my Sleep Number might change.  It is very likely that I might attempt to go sleep one night and  find that 75 doesn’t work for me anymore.  Unlike a typical bed that doesn’t change, I can easily adjust my Sleep Number to how I how feel on that specific night.

And here’s the best news yet.  I can adjust my bed every single day for the next 20 years.  Unlike typical mattress which only have a life expectancy of about 10 years (or less than eight in my old mattress’ case) Sleep Number beds have a limited warranty for 20 years.  Most people do not own a car for twenty years.  Unfortunately a lot of people are not married that long either:)  In 20 years my current life will be none existent.

Look at these guys.  They are my world.  They are cute, adorable, and tiny.  Currently they are 8, 5, and 3.  When my husband and I start thinking about replacing our Sleep Number bed they will be 28, 25, and 23.  Holy crap!  They will have graduated college, they could be married, and they could have children of their own.  I could be a grandma by the time I need to replace this mattress!!!!!  And now I’m crying……oh dear.  I’m crying over a Sleep Number mattress review.

Okay, I can’t think about that anymore.  Typically longevity is a good thing, but when I start thinking about my babies……yeah- the whole mother thing takes over:)

If you are interested in a Sleep Number bed of your own, be sure to check out all the awesome savings available.  Unfortunately a large number of savings end TONIGHT!  But I have confidence that a new round of savings will be available soon.



I received my Sleep Number bed for review purposes, however all opinions are my own.



  1. That is amazing that you got the Sleep Number Memory Foam bed. We don’t have one but I have tried it at a hotel, and it was one of the best nights of sleep I have ever gotten. Reading your post makes me want to ask for this, for our anniversary. It looks truly wonderful! Thank you!

  2. So when you turn the number higher, is it making it softer or harder? This s such an interesting concept in beds!

  3. this looks like an amazing mattress. i’m going to have to make a note to look at these when we buy our next mattress (which needs to be very, very soon!)


  5. I have been thinking about a new mattress–will have to try one of these out–I definitely like the idea that you can change that number nightly if you need too!

  6. We have the Sleep Number m7 and I LOVE it! We’d previously had a euro top memory foam and I hated it. It was way too hard and I woke up so every. single. morning. for 6 years. I love our m7 bed. I like ours fairly soft at 35 (40 now that I’m 9 months pregnant). After a long day, my husband jokes that he wants nothing more than to crawl into his “bed’s loving embrace”. That’s kind of what it feels like when you sleep on a Sleep Number memory foam bed.

  7. I can only imaging that it feels like a little slice of heavin. We need a new mattress, its on the agenda for the new year.

  8. I love these beds! They are a great investment.

  9. I wish we’d sprung for one of these when we made our big bed purchase. I was hypnotized by pillowtop! Maybe in 10 years… 🙂

  10. I have not been sleeping well! I think it has a lot to do with our old mattress!! I would LOVE one like this!

  11. I would love one of these beds. Thank you for the review.

  12. We just got a new mattress about two years ago thinking it would help with sleep. Both my husband and I still toss and turn during the night. We may need to save for something like this.

  13. Sounds like an amazing bed! So neat that you can adjust your settings and find the PERFECT comfort!

  14. That looks so comfortable! I already have a hard time getting my toddler to sleep in her own bed. I can only IMAGINE what it would be like with one of these, lol. A good mattress really does make a huge difference in the quality of sleep.

  15. Swwoooon! Lucky gal to have one of these beds, I too had the chance to try one of these beds in a hotel this past summer. Best nights sleep ever.

  16. I want I want I need! We purchased a new supposedly high end mattress 3 years ago and it was the worst purchase and waste of money ever. I really really want/need one of these!

  17. We need a new mattress so badly and this one sounds and looks fantastic! I will be adding it to our list when we start mattress shopping.

  18. I keep seeing these mattresses and am dying to try one out! Might be heading to the store in the mall soon!

  19. I didn’t know they lasted longer because of that. Way worth the extra expensive!

  20. I’ve been researching Sleep Number beds for a while now. My husband and I can never agree on a mattress. I think I need to show him your review!

  21. A limited warranty for 20 years?! That is amazing! I love the idea of a sleep number setting – how awesome is that?!

  22. OMG I love to sleep on a very nice bed. I wish we have that.
