[CPAP] Side-sleeper pillows
#11
Funny, I figured out the 90-degree thing with my two pillows. Helps a lot, but I am still interested in trying a PaPillow.

I ended up getting a one of the CPAP pillows and use it off and on. I find it a little firm (which is why I don't use it all the time), but the cut-outs seem to work as intended for me when I am using it.

What is the 90 degree thing with 2 pillows? I guess that I missed somewhere along the line.

Best Regards,

Edit: OK got it. I wasn't trying to be lazy-just thought the 90 degree thing was in another thread.

I use my FF with a Tempurpedic pillow of the ordinary rectangular shape. I don't have trouble with leaks because of this pillow, and in fact it sometimes helps me "beat" a leak into submission by pressing the mask into the pillow. The 90-degree idea with two pillows sounds like a workable solution too, so I'd suggest trying that first as two regular pillows will be cheaper than a top-of-the-line memory foam pillow like mine.

Making my own CPAP pillow - If anyone has done something similar please let me know, I am hoping this works.

I am going to attack a too-thick-for-me memory pillow (that I already have) with a knife to:
A) Make it thinner around my neck
B) Make room for a mask on each end
