I don’t always get a good night’s sleep and that is for several reasons: I don’t always turn off electronics an hour before bed (guilty!), I sometimes eat a bit later than I should before bed and my pillows aren’t that comfortable. That’s why I was eager to try Mediflow’s Floating Comfort Pillow when they approached me about reviewing their pillow (we’re giving away a Mediflow Floating Comfort Pillow to a lucky winner…please see giveaway details below).
The Floating Comfort Pillow is water-based. At first I thought, oh no, is this going to result in a flood in my bed? But even though you fill the pillow up with water, it is secured in the pillow and does not leak. At first, I was a bit anxious putting my head on this pillow due to my fear that somehow, water would leak onto my bed. But after I realized that there really isn’t that much water in the pillow compared to the size of the pillow and after placing my head fairly hard on the pillow, I started to feel comfortable with the idea of sleeping on a water-based pillow. I have to admit that the first minute I placed my head on the Floating Comfort Pillow, I felt immediate comfort. The pillow has a 300-thread-count and is made from CombedLoft Fiber so that explains why it’s so soft.
If you’re wondering whether the Floating Comfort Pillow comes in hard, medium or soft, that is not an issue because you can adjust the amount of water that you insert into the pillow to make your pillow soft or hard. The instructions recommend that you fill the pillow with enough water to make it of medium softness and they tell you exactly how much water to add. In the case of a medium pillow, you add three quarts of water, which is what I did. You then firmly press the pillow to allow any excess air to escape, then you tighten the cap and you’re good to go.
A clinical study at the John Hopkins University School of Medicine ranked the Mediflow Floating Comfort Pillow #1 in categories such as: how fast subjects fell asleep, fewest times subject has woken up, overall quality of sleep and reduction of neck pain. I have definitely noticed that since I’ve been using the Mediflow Floating Comfort Pillow, I am waking up later that I normally do in the night, which means I am sleeping for longer periods of time. I also haven’t woken up with a stiff neck since using the pillow.
As far as cleaning the Mediflow Comfort Pillow, you just empty the water from the pillow, replace the cap and machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle.
Now in the mornings, I sometimes don’t want to get up because my pillow is so comfortable.
The Mediflow Floating Comfort Pillow comes with a 60-day satisfaction guarantee or your money back and it has a 10-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
