Before you learn how to take care of a new mattress, it’s important to set some realistic expectations. First and foremost, it’s important to understand just how long it will take you to get used to a new mattress. Here, we’ll offer a bit of information to help you understand the adjustment period for when your new mattress arrives.
The most important thing to note is that, because your mattress is brand new, there are no depressions or soft spots on it from your body. This means that even a softer mattress is going to feel a bit firm on your body for the first few weeks that you sleep on it. Your body will need time to adjust to the new sensation — you might do a little bit of tossing and turning for a night.
Once you’ve slept on your mattress for a few nights, it will slowly start to have more give and grow a little bit softer on your body. If you sleep alone in your bed, it’s a good idea to distribute your weight as evenly as possible across your mattress while you’re breaking it in.
