I use an ikea fold up mattress. It's designed to go on a futon but its 100mm foam not one of those giant pillow things. folds into thirds for storage or to act as a seat. When flat it's a small double. I think argos sell something similar.
Funny you should mention that, I was just looking at their product video. It seems like a better solution than most PNP since it folds up so quick, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for. The most annoying part of fold up beds is dealing with a thick, real mattress afterwards. Since he uses it every night, I don't like relying on the thin fold up mattress provided. But thanks for sharing.
Can you help me find a fairly lightweight folding mattress (no bed frame). I'm staying with someone in a tiny studio, and need to just be able to fold up a mattress (kind of like a folding mat — you usually fold it in thirds). I'm looking for one that's eco-friendly and avoid toxic, plastic-types of sleeping mattresses. Something pretty basic as I often sleep on floors, but I'd like it to be comfortable, too. Any thoughts?
Folding memory mattresses mould to the shape of your body allowing body to sink into the mattress creating softness and flexibility rather than the traditional mattresses that can be hard and uncomfortable. You can fold up this mattress if you wish and move it around your home or take it on a short trip. This helps especially if you are a traveller and enjoy camping as you can take this mattress with you and enjoy its comfort wherever you go.
