I am a side sleeper. I love sleeping on my side. And with our super duper soft pillow top Stearns and Foster mattress I never had any trouble sleeping on my side. But when I stay with friends or family and they have a firm mattresses my shoulders always hurt in the morning.
Now we are in Vienna and the mattress in our furnished flat is pretty firm. My shoulders have really been bothering me. I tried doing a little stretching and yoga every morning but it wasn’t helping.
I decided to search for a bigger pillow thinking that would help. I didn’t find a bigger pillow (and chances are that might have just given me some neck pain) but I did find a solution: A Boppy!
We were in TK Maxx (it is TK not TJ Maxx here in Austria) and I had just about given up on pillows when I spotted the baby section and the Boppy pillows. Would it work? For only â‚¬14 I was willing to try it out.
Well, it works! The hole in the Boppy is perfect for your shoulder and it gets the weight of my body off my shoulders as I sleep! And as a bonus I can also use the Boppy to wrap around my waist while sitting in bed or on the couch and it holds my laptop or iPad perfectly!
