I’ve been suffering from a sore stiff neck lately and I couldn’t figure out if it was the way I was sleeping or the worn out pillow I’ve been using. I’ve been trying to troubleshoot the situation by altering my sleeping style but still no relief. Recently my husband has had the same complaints. I then figured it MUST be the pillows.
Since I’m not sure what type of sleeper I am, finding the right pillow has been challenging for me. I tend to sleep on my side, stomach AND back so I’ve tried ALL types of pillows. Some for back sleepers ….some for side sleepers and I am still searching for the perfect pillow. I’m starting to wonder if there really is a so called perfect pillow for me.
Recently, I was able to try out the Tempur-Pedic® Medium Neck Pillow from Sleepy’s, the Mattress Professional which is recommended for those who desire not only a better night’s sleep but also need a more therapeutic sleep.
That surely sounds like the pillow for me so I was anxious to give it a try. The first two nights I had to get used to the pillow but on night number three, I was sleeping like a baby. I now love this pillow. The hardest part for me though is sleeping on my back all the time but l’m getting used to it. I have noticed less neck pain also which is good. I’m not sure if this pillow is designed for side sleepers but I will give it a try a few nights and let you know.
The design and function of the pillow is pretty neat. The pillow is apparently made out of this heat-sensitive material that molds to your exact body shape to evenly distribute weight and pressure. It also has a dual-lobe design to supports the curve created by your head, neck and shoulders to properly align your spine and give you a perfect night’s sleep.
I must say, I have been sleeping better and definitely recommend the Tempur-Pedic Neck Pillow. But if I’m going to do so, I must be fair and share with you both the positives and negatives. I had to actually wait about a week before trying out the pillow. Within the first week of attempting to test out the pillow, I noticed a scent that I could not tolerate very well. It didn’t bother my husband much but it was very noticeable to me maybe due to my extra sensitive nose. But by the end of the week, the scent /odor was barely detectable. Once I got passed that, I realized it is probably one of the most comfortable pillows I have owned today. Another plus about Tempur-Pedic pillows is that they feature anti-allergy covers that are hypoallergenic and remove easily for washing. The covers also repel those nasty little dust mites that inhabit conventional pillows and cause major indoor allergens.
