Are your fluffy family members welcome in the bed? If so, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, around 60% of Americans currently share sleep space with their pets, while just 13% are opposed to having animals in the bed. And though some pet parents report suffering disturbed sleep due to the presence of Fluffy and Fido, still others say that snuggling with their pets leads to greater feelings of peace and security. Read on for tips on determining the best sleep situation for your family, including what type of bedding is best for the furry members of the clan:
What the Research Says
Whether you’re a long-time pet owner or welcoming a new animal for the first time, you might be wondering where your fur baby should sleep at night. However, the research is mixed when it comes to having pets in the bed. According to one study by wellness practitioner, Gaziano, people who sleep alongside pets experience more sleep disturbances than those who slumber alone. On the other hand, bunking with pets has been shown to result in feelings of comfort, safety, and love. And a study published by MSN showed that women who shared their beds with dogs slept better than those sharing their bed with a partner!
Clearly, the jury is still out on the subject of sleeping next to pets. However, one thing is clear: humans and pets alike can benefit from choosing the right bedding.
The Importance of Quality Bedding
If you’re set on slumbering with your pet, the type of bedding you select can ensure a good night’s rest. After all, if your sheets and duvets are scratchy, hot, or generally uncomfortable, both you and your animal friends are unlikely to sleep soundly. The gold standard when it comes to bedding, Egyptian Cotton, is a comfortable and environmentally friendly option for people and pets alike.
Promising both softness and durability, Egyptian Cotton won’t scratch or irritate sensitive skin. Additionally, it’s a breathable material that allows for greater airflow. As a result, both humans and pets will stay cool and dry throughout the night.
