Star Newcomb

Product Tester & Writer

Star is one of our Sleep Judge sleep enthusiasts and product testers. She has been in this field since 2015 using her knowledge and personal experiences to write about a variety of topics which include mattresses, crib mattresses and sleep health.

Star lives in the hilltowns of Northern New York with her husband, 4 beautiful children, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 birds, 8 chickens, and a partridge in a pear tree (no, not really the partridge). When she isn’t writing for The Sleep Judge, she can be found riding on the back of her husband’s Harley, enjoying a quiet night by a bonfire, playing games with her children, and listening to a wide range of music.

Star’s Sleep Profile In Her Own Words

As far as my sleeping habits go, I am a stomach sleeper. I cannot fall asleep unless that’s the position I am in.  I also like to sleep cool, I cannot stand to be hot, which is why I highly praise mattresses with a legitimate cooling factor.

My preferred type of mattress is something that isn’t too soft or too firm, right smack in the middle. SInce I am a stomach sleeper, you would think that I would be more comfortable on a firm mattress, but this is not the case. Mattresses that are right in the middle of the firm-soft scale and have no motion transfer are my ideal choice.
