My husband and I are looking into a king size mattress to make sleeping with our baby more comfortable. My husband thinks a memory foam mattress may help his back pain but I am worried about the safety of the bed. Has anyone here owned one? How does it perform? Especially after owning it after a while. I would be scared of letting the baby sleep in it if we start sinking in.

We own a Temperpedic and have been co-sleeeping in it from the day we came home from the hospital, nearly two years ago. We never had issues with DS sinking in too far, basically because he was/is so much lighter than DH and me. Mostly he just would slide into us, especially when he was a newborn. This kept him right at my side all night. Between the constant contact and being a light sleeper, I always woke when he stirred and was able to check on him. The tricky part with that was escaping after DS fell asleep. If done right, you can roll away slowly, letting the foam rise between you. A big advantage is there are no squeeky springs to give you away.

We have the model with the pillow top + the low box. Currently the box + mattress are stacked on the floor. The height is comfortable for us and safe for the little one. I'd say he was able to crawl in and out of bed well by 1 yo. We've had the bed about 4 years.

The only big complaints I have with the bed are that it can get real warm from retaining body heat, and can become really hard if not slept in for a few days.

I have been co sleeping on memory foam mattress not tempurpedic but from essentia its supposed to be more natural without toxins or flame retardants.  I never had problems with it and my DD has been sleeping on it since she was 4 months old w/o problems.  Also if you have it on the floor make sure you get a coco rug mat or somekind of a frame for it so it doesn't get moldy.
