Recently Lewis was really struggling with his sleep, he kept complaining his mattress was too hard, so he was laying on top of a quilt, and very late at night I would find him asleep with his earphones in listening to soothing music on YouTube, which he said helped him block out any noise. The lack of sleep was affecting him, and I was concerned that he was going into school tired (and he gets rather grumpy when he is tired).
We tried swapping the mattress around, first, we swapped with Jacob's softer mattress, and then the mattress from the spare bed, but nothing was working, he simply was unable to get comfortable.
There is the option of buying him a new mattress etc., however, I was concerned that even if we did spend money on a new mattress, it wouldn't solve the issues, and the same problems would continue.
Below are some great products we successfully tried out to help him get a better sleep.

With these two new additions, and with his trusty feather down pillow and snuggly quilt Lewis is now achieving a more comfortable sleep and we haven't had any issues since. Of course, he has the odd night where he can't get off to sleep, but that is normal for anyone, and nothing to do with the comfort of his bed.
