CPAP pillow, worth it?
#11
RE: CPAP pillow, worth it?
Another buckwheat pillow fan here. I tried four other types/styles of pillows before purchasing my buckwheat. I even went as far as putting a zipper in the cpap pillow that didn’t work out so I could fill it with buckwheat. It still wasn’t as good as the gusseted buckwheat pillow.

RE: CPAP pillow, worth it?
I used the “My Pillow” brand years before I started Cpap.  

For some reason, I then convinced myself that I would need a special Cpap pillow.  Oh-jeez
I’ve tried a few different Cpap pillows with the cutouts, but none were comfortable for me.  

Switched back to My Pillow, and it works fine.  You can bunch it to your comfort, and it stays that way.  Not a cheap pillow though.

I’ve never tried a buckwheat pillow, but many here like them.

I’ve come to the conclusion that finding a mask that works along with a pillow will end up costing you more than the Cpap machine itself.
