Let's be more specific; when you say you sleep on your stomach, describe the position to me. Are you flat on your belly with your neck cranked 90 degrees to the right or left? This is true stomach sleeping and can cause back and or neck pain.
What I typically see however is someone who sleeps on the side but leans toward their stomach. This is still side sleeping and is fine. If that describes you then you are fine. If you, however, are a true stomach sleeper beware because you will awake with neck or back discomfort. It's only a matter of time.
Time and time again, we get emails and customers requesting for us a to suggest a pillow that they can use to sleep on their stomach. Nothing comes to mind. The only pillow that I can think of is called the teardrop pillow, and this pillow will help you get out of sleeping on your stomach. Essentially, you feel like you are sleeping on your stomach, but really you are on your side.
