Sleeping together with your partner could be very romantic if you cuddle together. To feel that your partner is right next to you gives you a feeling of comfort and protection.
But not every time sleeping with your partner is the best thing that can happen to you. During the night some people toss and turn not realizing that they are doing these things which can even be not only uncomfortable for their partner, but even painful.
That is why we have prepared a list of couples’ sleeping positions, which will show you want the best sleeping positions for couples are, and how to avoid being in an uncomfortable position.
Positions #1 Sleeping with a baby
Having a baby is one of the best things that could happen to a couple, but for sure will not make their lives easier. Taking care of a baby takes a lot of responsibility. And if the couple is still learning how to take care of a baby, they will from time to time bring it to sleep with them in order to be much easier to watch over it when it starts crying.
However, sleeping with a baby is not as easy as it may seem. At some point during the night the baby may put its hand or leg over your face. This may not only wake you up, but it could be also a bit painful. If you do not want to fall victim to this not so wise way to sleep with your baby, do not make the mistake to leave the baby about the level of your head or above it. Avoid eventual kicks in the face by just leaving the baby between you and your partner, about the level of your chest. This way you will be picture perfect.
Position #2 Give your partner some space
Some partners want to sleep holding to each other, no matter whether they sleep face to face, or face to back, they want to feel the warmth and the presence of the person next to them. There are some other people, however, that do not like sleeping so close to their partner, especially in the summer when it is quite hot. If your partner prefers not to cuddle with you, do not get mad at them. This does not mean they do not want to feel you close to them, they just prefer to have their space. So, if you notice any such thing, do not sneak behind their back to cuddle with them. Just give them their privacy, and you may touch only their hand if you want to feel them.
Position #3 Pet lovers sleeping positions
Having a pet is like having a baby, although sometimes the sleeping positions are even more scarce when there is a pet, because your pet could move even more than your baby, and go over your hand. On the other hand, however, if you leave your pet next to your feet you will not be afraid that you can do something to it, because it can move in the right time. That is, if you teach it where its place should be if it wants to sleep with you. So, to avoid situations when a paw or a tail is in your face, just keep your pet in your feet, or somewhere below your waist.
Position #4 Sleeping with a partner who has long hair
Just like having a pet or a baby’s foot is quite unpleasant, the same way, having one’s long hair in your face is unpleasant. This time, of course, it will not be painful, but it will be tickling, and it could even wake you up. People with long hair should be careful not to get in their partner’s face. So, when you are going to sleep, make sure that your hair stays away from your partner given your sleeping position. If you are afraid that at one point your hair will again be in your partner’s face, you may secure it with an elastic band for maximum protection.
Position #5 Sleeping in your partner’s arms
If you think about it, this is one of the most romantic sleeping positions there are. But not every time your expectations are met: your arms or legs may tingle, your partner’s hand could end up in your face. In other words, a lot of things could happen that ruin your perfect moment together.
That is why when you go to sleep cuddling face to face, you need to make sure that this does not happen. First, you want to hug your partner with only one of your hands to avoid placing the other one under their body, which will lead to unpleasant stiff feeling in your arm. And if you want to hug them with both hands, just be careful how you place your arms. Make sure your hands are not too high, so that you do not cover your partner’s face while sleeping.
