Snoring might not impact your ability to sleep but if you share a room with someone else or you have particularly thin walls in your house, your loved ones and neighbouring occupants won’t thank you for keeping them awake. In fact, there are an estimated 20 million people in the UK who don’t get a good night’s sleep due to their partner’s snoring! If snoring is an issue for you (or your partner), there are anti-snore pillows available to help you put this issue to bed.

What type of pillow is best for snoring?

The Putnams Anti-snore Memory Foam Contour Pillow tilts your head back, leaving your airways clear. This pillow also comes with a deep air channel to help you regulate your temperature and keep your head cool. The super comfortable and supportive memory foam also makes this a great pillow to combat neck pain.

Offering numerous benefits, this pillow is made in the UK and is supplied to leading healthcare providers including the NHS.

Is a higher or lower pillow better for snoring?

Experts recommend slightly elevating the head to reduce snoring as this helps to minimise the effects of gravity on the airways.

What sleeping position is best for snoring?

Sleeping on your back is cited as a cause of snoring so the NHS recommends sleeping on your side to help reduce the risk of becoming a serial snorer. If you need help staying on your side throughout the night, you can always invest in a bed wedge.

On an important side note, more serious snoring such as making choking or gasping noises while you sleep could be a sign of sleep apnoea. If your partner has heard you make these sounds while sleeping and you feel particularly tired during the day, you should consult your doctor.
