2.  Learn tricks master your space. If you don’t have the space to wheel around both sides of your bed (like me), I suggest starting with putting the fitted sheet on the bottom two corners of the bed, then the top corner closest to you, then transfer onto the bed and reach across to get the sheet on to the final corner.

3.  Get a waterproof mattress cover. Ensure you keep your mattress protected from any accidents by using a waterproof cover.

4.  Choose a comforter instead of a duvet cover. This will help make your life a little easier!
