I was very skeptical about purchasing this pillow.I was desperate so I figured I would try it. My snoring was getting so bad, that my boyfriend could not fall asleep. I have the pillow for a couple of weeks now, and my boyfriend said there is a significant change in my snoring, it is now reduced to a mild purr, instead of a loud roar. He has no trouble falling asleep, and I no longer feel guilty about keeping him up at night.
I was a bit skeptical when I ordered the Sona Pillow. I read the reviews and many said it worked great while others said it was uncomfortable and didn't stop the snoring. I was delighted to find that it stopped the snoring on the first night! My wife couldn't believe it. And it is very comfortable, as long as you are used to sleeping on your side. I highly recommend this pillow.
This pillow reduced my husband's snoring significantly the first night he used it. He said it was very uncomfortable but got used to it after using it for awhile. If you are committed to reduce snoring (and sleep better in the process) use this pillow. However, over time the pillow will compact and reduce its effectiveness.
I had a lot of snoring and my wife was sleeping in another room. I got the pillow and in a few days my snoring is completely gone and my wife is back in my bed and we are sleeping together again.. I am 250lbs and i tried a lot of things before but this works the best.
I am primarily a side-sleeper, and I have been diagnosed with mild-to-moderate sleep apnea. I cannot tolerate C-pap and have been looking for other ways to cope with this. This is the only pillow actually approved by officialdom for use in treating sleep apnea, so I decided to try it. I have had it for several weeks now. I agree with other reviewers that it has to be broken in as the instructions also state. This took less than a week in my case. As I've gotten older (60), I have had increasing trouble deciding where to put my lower arm when on my side. This pillow has the solution built in! I will note that I am pretty flexible and have practiced yoga about once a week on average for decades. Maybe that has helped my shoulders retain good range of motion, but I have not had the difficulty with the arm placement required by this pillow that some other reviewers have noted. I do seem to be waking up a little less often, and my wake ups seem to occur when I have rolled over onto my back while sleeping. The pillow can encourage you to stay on your side, but, obviously, it cannot force a side-lying position. All-in-all, I would say it is helpful to me, and I find it as comfortable as any other pillow I have ever used. I think it will probably be a good partial solution for me.
I have owned one of these in the past and it does position your airway to limit snoring. It is a little firmer than I remember the first one being that I paid $150 for from Sharper Image a few years ago and left in a motel room, never to be found. It can cause a crick in your neck. The pillow case as a "bonus" leads you to believe that you are getting an extra pillow case when you get just one and there is no alternative available pillow case on the market that will fit this product. Also, the original pillow cases for this product used to have a sleeve for your arm which kept you from repositioning yourself during the night negating the positive effect of the item. Luckily, I still have one of the old cases.
I have tried so many things that it's not funny! This pillow, I personally guarantee has stopped my husband from snoring. As long as he sleeps just as the directions say, he's good to go. It did take about 3 nites to get it right. BUT, IT WORKS! Love it, thank you......shawrngene from Texas
This pillow is a miracle maker and saved my marraige. My wife and I have been sleeping in seperate bedrooms for almost a year due to my loud snoring. I recently purchased your Sona pillow and tried it for a few nights. My wife told me that I did not snore the entire night and in fact when I woke the next morning I felt teen years younger as I had the best night sleep of my life in over three years. WOW what a difference! So if you want to save your marriage like me I would highly recomend this pillow to any one who snores.
I have been waking up in the morning still feeling tired and my husband is always telling me that I make a lot of noise at night and that could causing me to not really sleep that well. I was just surfing the web and came across the Sona pillow. I purchased it and after a week or so of getting used to the pillow...my husband started commenting on me not making much noise anymore. I am feeling more awake and energetic in the morning and feel that it is a result of sleeping on this pillow. I look forward to many more great night's sleep. Well worth the money for sleeping and living better.
My husband has mild sleep apnea. He snores when he's on his back, but not on his side. I could never get to sleep if he was on his back and snoring. The shape of this pillow encourages a person to sleep on their side. We've had it for two weeks now and it works!!! No more sleepless nights or getting out of bed at midnight to go sleep in another room. Yeah!
I was so uncomfortable to sleep with got neck and arm pain. Continued and seemed to be a bit better but still not as comfortable sleep and SO says still snoring. It is hard to stay in such a confining position throughout the night. I rated fair only because it does give you some support when used as a regular pillow for support watching TV etc but very uncomfortable for sleeping.
I bought this pillow for my husband, hoping it would ease his snoring. He used it for two nights and had the worst neck pain. He said it was incredibly uncomfortable. I didn't notice a difference in the snoring, but then again he only used it twice.
