    I've heard of them too, but they cost to much for me to try just yet. Plus I want to hear from more then one or two people that have tried them. I really liked my water bed and wish I had never allow my wife to talk me into getting a regular mattres style bed. I know what you are talking about with the pain caused by F/M, I've had this DD way to long and if it wasn't for my family Doctor and all the meds that he has me on I don't even want to think about it, I won't go back to that way of life again. It just about killed me twice when I lost track of what I was doing work wise and no telling how many other close calls I've had. No way, not again. I'll set back and watch the others post their input.

    Try the search engine if you do not get many replies. It was on this site a lot at one time in the past.

    and I like it; but, I really think it's overpriced. It worked best before it got smushed down from sleeping on it. But, it does help cradle your body, and I wouldn't send it back even for a refund. What I really want now is more soft stuff (maybe foam) between my cuddle ewe and my pillow top mattress. I think we're all like the Princess and the Pea. We could have mattress covers stacked to the ceiling and we'd still want more. My dream bed would be to sleep on a cloud w/a soft feather blanket and drift around heaven all night.

    One more thing, you can try out the cuddle ewe for a certain period of time and get a refund if you're not satisfied with it. I even called their 800 # to verify this.

    HI Tuieke,

    I have not heard of this mattress before but there is one about which I should tell you. It is called tempur foam. This material is what the astronauts use when in space. I first became acquainted with this in the 80's when co-ordinating the Muscular Dystrophy Program for the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. they used it for seating systems for those in wheel chairs; the premise being that it creates no pressure points. It was then that I dreamed of a mattress for myself.
    Recently, I saw an ad of TV promoting this product and now have a formed pillow that I take with me everywhere because since useing it I have not had any problems with my neck or shoulders. I am now saving my money to purchase a mattress as I am sure that it would make for a better sleep without any morning stiffness. The pillow has been a God send!!

    Hope this helps

    I have the Cuddle Ewe, it is as soft as a kitten and fluffy as a cloud to sleep on.
    I have a queen size that I folded in half (twice the thickness) and have it on a single bed.

    I would say it is worth the price, as it is such a heavenly soft sheeps wool. The outer cover is well made of a sturdy fabric also.

    I don't know about it 'going flat' like someone else said, as I only have it for about 3 weeks now.

    But I would imagine that it could be shook out like you do a featherbed when you air it out, and it should go right back to its original thickness and softness.

    I also have FM, and yes, it is wonderful for the morning stiffness and the pain. I also use a 'mattress heating pad', you can get them from Penny's catalog or some stores on line (I have the mattress heating pad on top of the Cuddle Ewe, with a cover over both).

    If you want to read more about the Cuddle Ewe, they are sold here at Pro Health, just go to the 'Store' link at the top of this page, then type in Cuddle Ewe.

    It will explain all the features. Plus Pro Health's price is the best that I know of for them.

    HOpe this helped you...............

    Shalom, Shirl

    I have`nt tried one of them but did try a very expensive feather bed which did not give me more comfort so went back to my very thick foam ( the thick one they use in the hospital for people who are in bed a longtime, I covered this with a good mattress pad ,some good egyptian sheets (are heaven to sleep on) and am quite comfortable. Hope it lasts! Clueless

    My friend has one and just loves it. But her husband isn't so crazy about it. He wants more firmness. But she says it helps her.

    I purchased a cuddle ewe pad nearly a year ago. It was better before it became so compressed, but I still think it helps. Unfortunately it must be turned each time you change your sheets, which is sometimes difficult for those of us with the pain of fibromyalgia. As my mattress is king size, I purchased only a twin size pad to cover my side of the bed (my husband doesn't have problems), and that makes it easier to turn. I also have a Select Comfort air mattress. This is heaven. The mattress can be adjusted to suit your individual needs. Sometimes I have it softer than others. Even with all these aids I still have difficulty with sleep, but on good nights I awaken two times total - for me that's good.

    I have no experience with the Cuddle Ewe, but be careful when reading the posts about the tempurpedic or memory-foam mattress toppers.

    I purchased one, very expensive if you ask me, and I really don't like it at all. It's not cuddly soft by any means, in fact it's pretty hard. My neck and shoulders and other body parts are still killing me. I'm so disappointed.

    It's hard to return for a refund because it arrives in a "space saver" bag and weighs about 50 lbs! It would be horribly expensive to return, which is not really fair.

    DO THE SEARCH someone else suggested. We;ve discussed this topic many times and you will find much more info with the search.

    Good luck!

    It is cheap. I still like the full bladder. I can control the temperature. Also how stiff or not I want it. No allergy or dust mite etc. Would not trade it, looks good after all these yrs too.

    I'm looking for a new mattress and am considering the Royal Pedic latex mattress. What do you think of it?

    I have to tell you, I absolutely love it. It IS awesome! I had an absolutely horrible time sleeping before I got mine. It does away with that "princess and the pea" feeling that we get at times. I didn't really appreciate it fully until I went out of town and slept on another bed for a few nights. When I got home, I went to bed and felt like I was on a cloud. It is a wool pad, but a wonderful help to me. I am SO grateful for mine. I turn it often to avoid it getting dips and such. I also shake it, like fluffing a pillow, from time to time. It seems to help it stay fresh.

    Yes, it is very expensive, but if you can get someone else to get one at the same time on your order, I think that the company gives you a deal. Good luck!

    I love mine. It DOES NOT get rid of FM pain BUT it is super comfortable and I like the softness. A super hard bed will kill my FM and I wake up like a pretzel.

    Also, this particular underquilt keeps you warm in winter and cool in Summer.

    I highly recommend it. I paid alot for Calif King but you spend 1/3 of your life in bed so why not be comfortable?

    My wife loves it, too and she does not have FM.
