If you are like many, you may find that laying down and falling asleep is not that simple. One common reason, is tossing and turning due to a poor quality pillow. This can occur when you are using a pillow that is to soft or to firm, or when the pillow isn’t designed for your sleep position. You should find a pillow designed to support your neck and head as needed, but this can be tricky for stomach sleepers.
Things to look for is thickness, as a thinner pillow will not push your neck backwards as much as a regular pillow. This helps your spine remain aligned as you sleep. Another option is a pillow with a slight surface incline when laying with your face down. Below are a few options for stomach sleepers.
Deluxe Comfort MJ1430 Face Down Pillow – $43
This pillow resembles a headrest on a massage table (with a hole in it). It’s wedge shape allows the perfect comfort for stomach sleepers as you rest your face down on the pillow. It allows for easy breathing and great alignment.
DC Labs Ultra Slim Sleeper Memory Foam Pillow – $58
If the wedge shape is not what you’re looking for, this one provides a thin and soft design that is only 2.5 inches thick. This keeps your alignment straight while providing comfort.
Brookstone Stomach Sleeper Memory Foam Pillow – $50
The design of this one allows sleepers to be face down, but without being suffocated. The center is elevated to give a slight incline, and the memory foam provides a comfortable cushion.
