Leo is a 45 year old man who is a hot sleeper. From the time he was a child in boy scouts, he has always run to the warm side. He dresses casually to wear 100% cotton clothing, and he realizes that he will sweat in any weather, obviously summer, but fall, winter and spring as well.
He learned as a teen how to cope with always being warm. Leo was born prematurely and he has been curious about buying a weighted blanket, but he is afraid of investing in a weighted blanket and then getting hot at night while he is trying to sleep. He also has a cooling pillow, which has helped.
His wife Layla, is very understanding about his hot sleeper habits. Fortunately, they have a large king sized mattress in a generous room, so they sleep on different sides of the bed. Leo uses an overhead ceiling fan and he also uses a fan on his side of the bed.
Layla can use a warm blanket on her side to account for the difference in the room temperature. She also uses a weighted blanket to sleep, and hopes that her husband, who tosses and turns while asleep can benefit from a blanket and she would like to buy him one. She is sympathetic to his situation and supportive of trying new products which can be key for cooperation in a relationship with someone who has trouble sleeping cool.
They also use a covered duvet which is a removeable cover, it's washable for the bed, a memory foam mattress and mattress pads for cool sleep and for Leo, who suffers with night sweats.
