Thumbsup I think I need a new pillow
Hey everyone,

I have been on my sleep apnea therapy for a week now and it's GREATlike!!!
Has anyone changed to a different type of pillow they sleep on. I feel like my pillows are not they best I could be sleeping with my treatment. I'm looking for any suggestions or ideas on what everyone is using.


I was thinking about getting a contour pillow for Cpap.

Any feed back would be great.

Thank you

Hi Meikar and Welcome to Apnea Board!
You have to find a pillow that not only supports your neck but allows you to sleep on your side without knocking your mask off.

I tried the contour pillow and it didn't work for me. It seemed hard and since I have a short neck, the pillow just didn't fit. Everyone is different and it may work for you.
I have been using the My Pillow for over a year and am happy with it.
I'm sure you will get loads of responses as to what everyone uses. Good Luck in your search.

Hi Meikar,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I use a buckwheat hull pillow. "Google" Pur-Sleep, they have a Buckwheat hull pillow that you can look at.
Good luck to you with your CPAP therapy.

Hi Meikar - WELCOME! to the forum.!

Add a +1 for what trish6hundred said. These pillows can be adjusted with more or less fill to accommodate your size and sleeping position.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

I also just got the buckwheat hull pillow and it's a big improvement over normal pillows. I'm a side sleeper with nasal mask and the pillow improves the leak rates significantly.
