I want an awesome bed.

Do you have an awesome bed? A bed you're daydreaming about right now? I want you to tell me about it. Your favorite mattress, pillows, mattress topper, sheets, comforter, duvet cover, anything. All suggestions welcome.

Adjustable bed recomendations

My parents are looking for an adjustable bed (the kind where you can change the angle of the bed, not the adjustable firmness like sleepnumber). We've had a hard time finding good reviews, so I'm hoping some people here will have first hand experience to share. Any good/bad brands to keep in mind? Anything they should think about when buying such a bed, or things you wished you knew before buying one? Thank you!

I think I may have bed bugs, pics inside!

We caught this bug on my bed and I have a few questions...1) So this is a bed bug right? Google images pretty much answered this question but I'm still hoping somebody's gonna say "no dude, it's something else, totally harmless!" But FYI, we were bitten a few times several weeks ago and just assumed it was unusually persistent mosquitoes. [more inside]

Prevent dog from hiding under bed

My wife & I adopted/rescued a daschund recently who doesn't respond well to men. While we're trying to get the dog accustomed to me, we have problems where the dog will hide under our king-sized bed when my wife is out of town and I cannot lure it out. I've tried positive reinforcement, treats, and trying to grab it and gently guide the dog from its hiding place. [more inside]

The easy way to sit up in bed.

I am looking to get one of those seatbacks that you can put in your bed, that will allow you to sit up in bed with minimal effort. Let me clarify - this is not a recliner. It's almost as if someone took a car seat and cut the tush part off, but added a bit near the bottom for stability. What is the offical term for them, and where can I find them?

Help me find an iPhone or book holder to read in bed

My wife and I love to read books in bed, just before going to sleep. I usually use my iPhone 4 Kindle app. Lately, however, the biomechanics of semi sitting up in bed have been taking there toll on my already somewhat debilitated spine (mild degeneration). I would like to be able to lie flat and read by staring straight up (or at least give this a try). Unless you've tried it, you may not know that simply holding the device or book overhead with your arms simply doesn't work. Some kind of holder is needed. I am looking for anyone's suggestions on what might work, perhaps those who are, or know someone who is, quadriplegic, or otherwise disabled might have some good ideas.I'm not so much looking for something I could kludge together, but more interested in something that is already available; I'm not firm on this, however. All suggestions are welcome, though!

Mattress Musings?

We need a new mattress, as our old one is ancient and reduced to badly sagging springs and dust-mites. This is such a complicated and involved topic, and it's so under-served by reputable sites online, I'm having trouble figuring out the smart play. I am enormous, she is petite. I toss and turn vigorously, she sleeps like a log. I think anything above freezing is too hot, and she thinks anything below 85 is too cold. We really like the company of sleeping in the same bed.
