I am not sure on the recommendation as yet. (Well, it wouldn't let me submit without picking yes or no) It was purchased in early Dec. yet I received it as a CHRISTmas gift and have only used it a few days. I haven't been as pleased as I thought I would be with it and am giving it a fair try. I was looking for a "cool pillow" to help me sleep better at night. It doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I am hoping if I use it a bit longer it will come through.
