I think I'm comfortable sleeping on my stomach, sideways.. I easily fall asleep that way.. But yea, if the space is limited I could sleep on my back.. On my stomach if it's really comfortable mattress.. Love it that way! How do you sleep anyway?

Well i can basically sleep on any position. Sleeping on my stomach is the most comfortable for me. I heard that it eases lower back pains. I think i don't snore much too when i sleep on my stomach. lol! When it's too cold, i sleep sideways while hugging my pillow. I don't use blankets because it's quite uncomfortable so i'm using my pillows as blankets. lol! I don't know but it works.

I prefer to sleep on my stomach but because my daughter still sleeps with me, sometimes this is really difficult to do. She's a bed hog LOL I only have a full size mattress and more often than not she's on my side of the bed. Thank God it's only the 2 of us or else we'd really be in trouble. OH YEAH!!! Don't forget the cat who tries pushing me out of bed on the other side LOL I'm lucky to get any sleep around here LOL

Sometimes I fall asleep or am more comfortable on my stomach but that is not always the case. If the matress pad gets bunched up or messed up then it makes it a bit uncomfortable for me to sleep on my stomach. I may lay there for awhile on my stomach but then I'll have to switch around to my back eventually or even to my side so I can get comfortable enough to fall asleep. Otherwise I'll have a really sleepless night.

Usually, it's either on my stomach or on my side. I've never really been comfortable sleeping on my back. It's always been on my side or on my stomach. I'm really sure why, but it's just been that way, for as long as I remember.

I can't sleep on my back or my stomack. I like to sleep on my side, all curled up. If i had to choose between the two, I'd say on my back but again, I'd be more comfortable on my side. I've always been that way. Also, if I am in a single bed, I'll sleep curled up against the wall.

I have to sleep on my side, I've never been able to sleep comfortably on my back or stomach. When I sleep on my side, though, one dog curls into my knees and one curls up to my stomach. When I want to turn over, everyone has to get comfortable all over again!

I sleep on my side mostly. I only sleep on my stomach if like you, the mattress is super soft. I cannot sleep on my back in a bed, only on a really squishy couch.

Usually its on my side curled a bit, when my back is giving me problems I have to lay on my back. I have degenerated back disease so some days its just the way it has to be. Thats why I have many pillows..
