Like to snuggle up on your tummy? You're a bit of a rarity - only 7% of people sleep on their fronts. The good news is that sleeping on your front means you're less likely to snore, but the bad news is that it places a lot of pressure on your back and neck. This can cause back and neck pain as well as headaches and even nerve pain. If you can, it's best to try and sleep in a different position. But if that's just not an option for you then there are steps you can take to make sleeping on your front better for your body.
A firmer mattress will mean your back is better supported as you sleep. If you like a softer feeling, then you could top your mattress with a topper for extra softness supported by a firmer mattress. A soft mattress might seem tempting but because it will cause your body to curve forward unnaturally, you will be more likely to experience back pain.
A shallow pillow is best for people who sleep on their fronts. That's because they let your neck rest in as natural a position as possible. You may also benefit from sleeping with a shallow pillow underneath your hips to help take pressure off your spine.
