My husband and I are shopping for a new bed. We cosleep w/ two kiddos (3 months and 3 years) who both nurse during the night- the constant turning all night long leaves my hips and knees quite sore. We've been looking for super-comfy/affordable beds, and this brought me to the question- is there something else that may be better?
It just seems strange to me that as humans we've evolved to a point of needing to spend around $1000 for something to sleep on that won't make us sore in the morning. What did people sleep on before beds? Did they wake up as sore as we do? Will an expensive bed necessarily solve our problems, or are we going to find ourselves needing an even more supportive bed later on?
I ask because I recently discovered barefoot running and learned that more supportive shoes actually cause more injuries.. now I'm wondering if beds might be the same way..
