US couples reveal sleep habits

Margaret Jack  By Margaret Jack   |   Posted in Sleep Research   |   Last updated: Tuesday 22nd January 2013

A survey into the co-sleeping habits of American couples has revealed a number of ways in which partners avoid sleep problems and ensure they get sufficient shut-eye in a shared bed. The research, carried out by the Better Sleep Council, found that 63% of couples sleep without touching, while 10% prefer to ‘spoon’ against each other. Some 10% said that they needed to sleep in separate rooms to get good sleep, underlining the potential disturbances that co-sleeping can sometimes create. In fact, 85% of the respondents said that they had some sort of problem sleeping at night.

Of the problems identified in the survey, disagreements in room temperature topped the poll, followed by disturbances from their partner moving around, and loud snoring.

Sleep problems noted in the survey that weren’t related to their partner included the age, firmness and general condition of the mattress, with 28% saying that their mattress prevented them from getting good quality sleep.
