Many people become overheated when in bed at night, and this can interfere with their sleep patterns. The use of a cooling mattress pad can prevent overheating and thus ensure sound sleep.
Becoming overheated is a very common reason for a getting a poor night’s sleep.


An excessive temperature can be a problem with any type of material, but these problems can often be somewhat more noticeable when you are sleeping on a foam mattress. Memory foam is one of the most popular types of mattresses as it is so comfortable and so it is most unfortunate that this is the case.

It can be difficult to find mattress toppers that are designed to cool you down. Manufacturers often label a topper as “cooling” – but there is no recognized standard in this area.

The wide range of mattress toppers and pads can make it hard to choose the best option.

One of the main advantages of latex mattress toppers is that they ‘breathe’. That is they do so if they use natural latex. There are air channels in natural latex that allows air to circulate.


This means that your skin is allowed to breathe as you sleep and the mattress toppers are cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Unfortunately there is one key disadvantage with this type of topper in that they are difficult to clean. They cannot be dry cleaned, neither can they be washed clean. However, it helps if bedding is regularly vacuumed. It should also be noted that natural latex resists dust mites, mildew, and mold.
