I Love the Cold Side of a Pillow

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,250 People

    :)

    I feel like it helps me fall asleep faster. I hate it when everything is warm and its like impossible to fall asleep because you are trying to get comfortable. When that happens to me, I just get up and walk around and wait for the blankets and pillows to cool down.

    Cooling, Comforting, And Relaxing

    When laying in bed and you just can't get comfortable or relax, you're just a little to warm...simply turning the pillow over can change those feelings immediately. The coolness on the other side can make you smile just because you know now you can relax and fall to sleep....the...

    Nice Cold Comfort

    Sleeping on a pillow too long causes me to feel hot then uncomfortable. So I either move to another pillow or flip it over to the cold side! The coolness of a pillow is so comforting and refreshing! It helps me go back to sleep, because I am a light sleeper and constantly move...

    I Turn My Pillow Over

    several times a night. Someone should invent a pillow that will stay cool all night. I'd buy a few, and give them as gifts.

    Pillows

    I like the picture of the brand new fluffy pillows. It makes me feel so fresh! As if I had a nice shower and a fulfilling nights sleep. Crisp sheets and brand new socks. Pressed pants and a clean shave.

    Helps Me To Sleep Better

    It's just feels so good especially in the summer it sort of refreshes you and I'm sure it helps me sleep better when it is to hot. It has always been a part of my sleep ritual and I'm sure sometimes I even turn the pillow over in my sleep.

    Old Fashioned Down Feather Pillows

    I can't sleep without my pillows.  They have to be the old fashioned feather pillows.  Not the new ones with the "stick feathers" that poke you in the face.  The old fashioned ticking that is like denim with the soft down. Love the cold side of an old fashioned down pillow...

    When I Can't Fall Asleep

    it's the best thing. I'm not sure why it's so soothing when I need my blankets to be warm and heavy, but I still love it. Recently I haven't needed the cold side of the pillow because of my medication, but I know it's there if I need it.

    The Pillow's Always Cooler On The Other Side

    It's a hot night. I'm tossing and turning trying to find the right spot. My pillow feels like it just came out of the dryer. Then, like a second chance, I flip my pillow over and the cool side greets me with affection. That just made my night a lot easier.

    They Put a Man On the Moon....

    so why can't they design a pillow that stays cool?  The cold side is by far the best and gives the best sleep.  Can it be that hard?  I can only imagine how much better my nights would be if the pillow stayed cool.  Ah, I guess we all have our dreams....

    My Only Problem

    Is that my head is so hot that one side of the pillow heats up before the other cools down. While I cycle through my pillows sometimes I just have to switch to resting my head on a cool spot on the sheet.

    I sleep with a window open. The fresh air is nice for sure but the bonus is that it helps keep the pillow cold.
