This is the most fantastic invention. It literally stops individual's from snoring most of the time. One challenge though, is that it is quite hard getting used to; with persistence, it is worth the effort! This is the 5th one we have bought; we take one traveling, keep one at Mom's house, and always have a back up at hand. They are washable, but do lose shape after a few washings. They seem to last about 1 year.
I bought this for my husband, but he found it awkward to sleep on his side with his arm under the pillow as designed. It bothered his shoulder and wasn't comfortable for him. So I took it over, and began to use it as a "body pillow". I rarely sleep without it--it's perfect for snuggling. As a snore stopping device, I can't comment since my husband never used it.
This is the third pillow I have bought. The first one helped my snoring greatly. the second and third pillow have not been as effective in helping my snoring. I believe it is something in the production that is causing the issue. The first pillow was firmer and held its shape well. The third one is very soft and it losing it's shape easily. I have been trying different things to keep it working but I still get hit in the middle of the nite because I am waking up my spouse. I have recommended this pillow in the past to people but as of this third pillow I am not sure I will recommend it anymore. I am not sure I will buy a fourth pillow either. We thought we had the solution but it doesn't seem so.
I never thought this funny looking pillow could even some what help my husband stop snoring but to an amazing surprise it really worked. He at times switches back to the old pillow in the middle of the night and right away he starts snoring. I pull his pillow as a hint that he is snoring again, he then switches back to the Sona pillow and Ta Da.... It stops. He is now convinced to use it all the time. The only thing is they need to give 2 pillow cases in stead of one!!
I bought this for my mother who had mild sleep apnea. She now sleeps through the night and has no morning "dry mouth" thanks to this pillow. It's the second one that I've bought for people and they couldn't be happier. This pillow looks a little strange when you first get it but it takes only a night or two to get used to it. For anyone who's experiencing mild sleep apnea, I suggest that you try this before buying the very expensive CPAP machine for thousands of dollars. I'm very pleased with the outcome.
I dont usually write reviews, but the makers of this pillow deserve a praise. I have chronic neck pain due to an old car accident. I spent thousands of dollars on CT scans, chiropractors, and physical therapy. I got this thinking it wasn't going to work, but it really has helped me. My sleep definitely improved and my neck is much better than pre-use. You should be aware of two things 1) it is hard to fit the pillow in regular pillow case, though it comes with one white pillow case of its own. 2) and more importantly, you must make certain that you use the pillow properly. there are stripes showing how you are supposed to sleep on it. I made the mistake of accidentally sleeping on it upside down and had the worst neck ache. Hope this helps other poor souls like me :)
I don't know that it stopped, but it definitely improved my breathing and lessened snoring according to my partner, which allows us both to rest better, and together. I don't find the positioning totally comfortable, and it seems to work best when used according to the directions, so I only use it when we are together. I definitely feel it is worth trying if snoring is interfering with your rest or relationship.
My snore pillow does work if used properly. My husband is happy I bought it. He says it is so much quieter when we are sleeping. And he does not have to wake me up to tell me I'm snoring and have to turn over. I get a better nights sleep too. I really like the pillow and would recommend it to anyone who snores.
I've been buying Sona pillows for years, the same type as the one I recently purchased. This shape of Sona pillow is the shape that works for me. When I started using it years ago I stopped snoring and waking up in the middle of the night gasping for breath. It's like the pillow is a life-saver, seeming to have cured my sleep apnea. I've told lots of people about it including my doctor.
