As someone with a messed up hip from childbirth I can very much confirm! 5/7 would sleep again.


This doesn’t work for me because I regularly switch sides during the night, and then the pillow is in the way. M


I spent years with back pain getting me out of bed after no more than 6 hours. Didn’t matter if I had work, holiday, weekend, I was always out of bed by 6 at the latest, and often after tossing and turning for a while before finally giving up trying to sleep more. Now I sleep with a knee pillow and do not wake up with back pain. Only trick is you need to remember which pillow you have been serially farting on when you change pillow cases.
