RE: Contour CPAP pillow
I bought a similar one because I tend to turn my head to the side or face down and it messes with my mask positioning.

The first night I tried it didn't work. Then my spouse said the instructions say it takes time to get used to it, so I'm going to have to experiment more.

RE: Contour CPAP pillow
Yesterday I cut the lower sides out of a memory pillow in the same shape as the cpap pillows for sale on the internet. Had a really good nite last night, so we will see!

RE: Contour CPAP pillow
I use one of those bucky travel pillows, sort of c-shaped, for under my neck. I put it in a regular pillow case though so I don't have to wash the pillow cover it came with so often. Works for me.

RE: Contour CPAP pillow
I just bought one 2 weeks ago...I like it better than a smaller one I had that was shaped a bit different....tho I will say it I dont think it has big enough depressions for the mask for side sleepers.
I notice the headgear on my forehead doesnt have a depression and will cause leaks when I sleep on my side and to sleep on my stomach i have to maneuver onto the very edge...still better than the cpap pillow I replaced and certainly better than just a regular pillow

I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see

Hi
I just use two regular pillows. One slid slightly over the other. Has worked great for over 6 years.

RE: Contour CPAP pillow
Thank you for the posts. I wound up purchasing a decent firm pillow from Costco. It gives me the neck support I need. I works well and didn't cost an arm and a leg.
