Buying Bed Pillows

I read somewhere a while back that a pillow over two years old has accumulated it's original weight in dust mite nastiness etc. I have to change mine regularly as my head sweats terribly no matter how cold the room is kept. I even bought one of those pillows that "guarantee" to keep your head comfortable -- no dice. Anyway, now I just get cheaper ones; use the covers that supposedly form an impervious barrier (but probable also contributes to heat), and still spend more money on them than I care to think about. The older I get, the less I seem to sleep I seem to get. Maybe I should use the money on more fabric and sleep sitting up in my recliner.... My beagles won't like it; they want to cuddle in bed.

Wow this is what I was going to suggest! We stayed at Paniolo Greens in Hawaii and these were the pillows on the bed. My husband and i liked them so well I ordered 6 online. They are reasonably priced as well.

yup, lots of differing opinions.
I discovered after nearly my whole life, that my dgd "baby" pillow I helped her big sister make, that
as a mostly stomach sleeper, I had been sleeping on pillows that were too big!
My dh gave up one that his chiropracter designed that has a rectangular hollow in the middle and
I confiscated that one too.
It's mostly our necks that need the support and proper alignment anyway.

here's something else to consider for those that are not sleeping well:
My dh has sleep apnea and I'd had trouble sleeping for many, many years due to fibromyalgia.
Well, somewhere along the way I too, developed sleep apnea and had no idea.
If you snore even a little, but wake up tired and have a dull headache for a while, ask your sleep
partner if you snore.
If they say yes, go talk to your doctor. I went to a sleep study and the next morning I told the
tech it didn't work...I never snored.
He grinned and said, "Only when you were asleep!" "really?"....really!

Thanks all. Lots to think about. Kind of afraid to order on line,but who knows.....might
just do that. Wash my pillows every 3-4 mos in hot water. Learned to check they are washable before buying.
