About Stomach Sleeper Pillows
Your pillow serves a very important purpose. It supports your head and neck throughout the night, ensuring that you can wake up without neck pain or stiffness. Yes, this applies to you even if you sleep on your stomach. In fact, because sleeping on your stomach includes twisting your neck all night long, the pillow you choose is even more important than for those who sleep on their side or back.
