It is not necessary to do anything beyond sleeping on your mattress for it to break in naturally, but there are some methods that can help expedite this process. Below are some options if you prefer to speed up the adjustment period of your mattress:
- You can either carefully walk across or bounce gently on your mattress to help aerate the fibers and foam within your mattress.
- If your bed has pocketed springs, it can help to pull on the edges of your mattress to aid in expansion. Please note that this is not a suggested technique for all-foam mattresses.
- Keep the room where your mattress is located well ventilated for the first 24 hours. This will help the odor dissipate and your mattress to aerate fully.
