does your partner hog the sheets?!

Postby Richard Hawley » Mon Jul 04, 2016 7:55 pm

Everyone needs sleep, and it can't get any more perfect when you're snuggled deep under comfortable blankets and sheets. Yet, most couples who share a bed with each other will reach a point of having to cope with the issue of one or the other hogging the sheets in the middle of the night. The sooner you're aware of what to do, the sooner you'll get back to a comfortable night's sleep! My ex boyfriend was always hogging the sheets....And that was driving me crazy to be honest. The only advice i can share with you is that you should always talk about the issue when it first starts out. Don't wait until it becomes a severe issue and then finding yourself using, "Well, this has been going on for some time", as a defensive ploy in your favor. Many people don't realize it happens in the first place. What do you think ?

Steal back those monopolized sheets and covers. Try to pull the sheet or covers back onto you gently but firmly. A few tugs back toward your side of the bed might suffice. If not, perhaps getting out of bed and lifting up the entire sheet and covers and draping them back over both of you might be all that's needed. If your partner is well asleep, they may simply subconsciously rearrange their sleeping position to cope with the restored covers arrangement.Be prepared for difficulties, however! Stay calm and talk to your partner...EVerything can be fixed

Be prepared for difficulties, however! There are several potential downsides to attempting this "gentle shift" of the covers back toward you:Depending on how they have managed to end up with all the sheet and covers, you might find out that they wrapped themselves in a "burrito wrap". Unfurling this is probably about as easy as unwrapping a mummy, only weightier. Unless you're strong and gentle in just the right balance, this could end up in a tangle, with a grouchy awoken partner alongside you.You may also find your partner stealing the sheet and covers back after you've shifted them. This can go on repeatedly, ending up in a "gimme back my covers" struggle throughout the night. Hardly conducive to a good night's sleep!

Hahaah I AM NOT SURE THAT IT IS A PROBLEM, BUT STILL IT IS A real problem for some of us. :) :) :) First of all you should discuss the issue with your significant other first and explain what has been happening at night ;) ;) be kind, as many people do not realize their strength when asleep and cold :!: :!: Buying flat sheets and covers that are larger than your mattress size is not unusual by any means and is an excellent way around the problem of both bed users wanting to snuggle into lots of the cover. Indeed, bedding suppliers often stock separate flat and fitted sheets, just for this reason, to allow you to fit the mattress correctly but use a larger flat sheet on top.

Purchase a bigger flat sheet and cover, or even multiple covers. Discuss the issue with your significant other first and explain what has been happening at night; be kind, as many people don't realize their strength when asleep and cold! Buying flat sheets and covers that are larger than your mattress size is not unusual by any means and is an excellent way around the problem of both bed users wanting to snuggle into lots of the cover. Indeed, bedding suppliers often stock separate flat and fitted sheets, just for this reason, to allow you to fit the mattress correctly but use a larger flat sheet on top.For example, if you have a queen size bed, purchase a king size flat sheet and duvet/blanket/other bedding covers. All that extra length at the sides turns into separate snuggle zones!

Alternatively, buy separate covers. This solution means that both of you will have your own covers, even if the sheet is hogged. Extra covers ensure you that the other person won't be able to steal the entire amount of warm bedding and you will still have something left to cover yourself with.Try clipping the sheets securely on either side of the bed. There is an increasing range of ways to secure the sheets and duvet covers on either side of the bed to stop your partner from pulling the covers to their side. There are a number of products available for this purpose, generally with clips on either side of the bed that attach to the covers and are connected by an elastic strap which passes under the mattress or bed frame. Try searching for "cosy cover hugger", "duvet clips", "cosy grips", or even "bed sheet holder" or "sheet fasteners" to find a potential solution. If all else fails, see if you can create your own makeshift bed sheet clips.

Snuggle up with your partner. Try to wedge yourself inside the sheets behind them, so that you can actually get some cover. This is great for free heat exchange, and it'll keep both of you snug. Be sure to pull your pillow close too, so that you're not pushing your partner's head off their pillow.If your partner is in a deep sleep, be careful! They may not realize you're so close and might accidentally elbow you when shuffling in their sleep.Overheating, pins and needles or difficulty with breathing can ensue if you're stuck in an awkward position or up too close with your partner under all those covers! Shuffle back to your spot if you're uncomfortable.

Ugh..... :roll: :x My Mikey always do that! So i know what am i talking about! And do have one good advice for guys! If you are not into getting separate sheets, tuck a good amount of sheet underneath you and use your body weight on it. This will make it harder for the other person to steal back the covers. Sometimes it really helps me to stay covered during the night. Even though it may seem uncomfortable.... So choose - comfortable but with sheets or vise versa. And lease....Consider keeping a sleeping bag on standby for really cold nights! :lol: :lol: :lol: Stay warm boys!

honestly i do not, or better to say, we do not have such a problem. of caurse sometimes happens that one of us really suffer from the absense of banket and we had argues about it in the beginning of our relations. but we found the decision. now we have two banckets. well we do not usualy use both at one, but when there is such a situation when one of us suffers fron cold, we just take one more and all the probems are solved. use such way out, perhaps it will be your serviving ship... haha or maybe not. at least it helped us))) :) :)
