A good night of sleep is a beautiful thing.  Unfortunately, it is not always easy for some people.  I know that I have tried many different pillows in hopes of finding a comfortable fit.  Before my new pillow arrived, I used a memory foam one.  This was hardly perfect but the best one for cradling my neck, which sometimes can keep me up if I can't find the perfect position.  Since a published clinical study at John Hopkins School of Medicine found the Mediflow Elite Waterbase pillow effective to improve the quality of sleep, I needed to see what sort of rest I would experience with my neck.

The Mediflow Elite is a water pillow surrounded by lots of hypoallergenic polyester fiber filling.  At first glance, it looks like an ordinary pillow until turned over and you see the plug. By filling the water pouch, you adjust for softness or firmness by pouring out or adding water to your satisfaction.  After you find the right water level for you and lock it back up, you just slip on your pillow case and get ready to sleep.

Here's the back of the Mediflow Elite Waterbase Pillow.

I had assumed there might be sounds of water swishing back and forth once I got into bed.  Surprisingly, no bothersome sounds got in the way once I put my head down after maneuvering to find my sweet spot.  

I thought I got just enough firmness to support my neck properly.  When pillows are too firm or overly soft, I toss and turn.  With the Mediflow pillow, I could relax.  The pillow contoured to my neck and head.  You might say my neck felt at home there.

In fact, I fell asleep sooner than I normally do.  When I awoke, I did feel more rested than I I had in quite some time.  

Discovering this pillow was a wonderful experience and I will keep it exactly where it is on my bed.  I don't know how it will hold up in time because this has only been one week of use, but I really think it does help keep your neck more comfortable for a better night of sleep.  

The Mediflow Elite Waterbased pillow is sold exclusively at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and Bed, Bath, &  It retails for $39.99.

If you have trouble sleeping for one reason or another, I do recommend trying a Mediflow Elite pillow and see if you wake up happier than you have in a while.
