Do you flip your pillow to the cold side?

I do and I always thought I was kind of alone, I always used to watch those ads for mattresses as a kid and see people not being able to sleep flipping their pillows, but it seems that they were flipping so they could fluff, not because they had become warm.

I did think I was alone until I found multiple clubs and groups on Facebook for people like me, people who can’t stand a warm pillow. A buddy of mine had a pillow made out jeans material and it would stay pretty cold, but you had to sleep on jeans, it was kind of weird, like using someones butt for a pillow.

Do I have any readers who are fellow pillow flippers?

Its good to know I’m not alone anymore.

    In the summer I flip.

    I always flip my pillow to the cold side! It is refreshing and helps me sleep. I also like the “edge of the sheets” that area that is not war, from sleeping in them, and it is nice to put your feet there.

    I always sleep on the cold side, and I know a mother who had to put a pillow in the freezer for a bit in order to get her son to sleep.
    There are some materials that do not get cold at all, and I hate sleeping on those.
    (How’s that for a question before you visit, do your pillows retain coldness?)

    I do.

    As TRS noted and I didn’t notice until he did so, that I flip more prevalently in the summer time.

  • Mikeinmidwood February 16, 2009, 3:16 PM

    yes, I cant stand a warm pillow.

  • Anonymous February 16, 2009, 3:19 PM

    I have satin sheets–and I never have to flip. Should try it, it’s AMAZING!

    Yes, my name is Phyllis and I’m a pillow flipper.

  • Phil February 16, 2009, 7:31 PM

    I flip mine so often that I usually end up without it by the middle of the night.

  • The Wandering Wondering Jew February 16, 2009, 8:18 PM

    I’m a pillow flipper too. I like the pillows with the gel core because they have a tendency to stay cooler and need less flipping.

  • The Law February 16, 2009, 8:34 PM

    dude theres a whole family guy scene about flipping to the “cooler” side of the pillow…

  • former baltimorean February 16, 2009, 8:38 PM

    always, I think the real question should be, who doesn’t flip their pillow?

  • s(b.) February 16, 2009, 10:27 PM

    I flip. On pesach, I flip twice. That’s the 5th question. [/facetious]

    If you’re like one of my children, who leaves the fan on all night in our frigid house (my wife likes to keep the heat low), you might not need to flip.

    I flip in the heat of summer. In the frigid cold of winter, I snuggle into the warm side.

  • chanz February 17, 2009, 1:10 AM

    i may b the only one, but i like to be warm…as long as my feet stick out from under the covers.

  • Batya from Shiloh February 17, 2009, 3:48 PM

    No pillows for me, bad for the neck. But if you want to keep your wrinkle free youthful look, you may like Jeff’s pillow cases.

  • Batya from Shiloh February 17, 2009, 3:50 PM

    Why is that previous comment I wrote in need of moderation? Jeff’s an old friend from GNN. We sat together at a wedding the other night. The link’s legit.

    Having lived for a while in the South, I use an invention called air conditioner. Set it really low, use a lot of blankets. Your head is cool, everything else is warm.

  • Michal bas Avraham February 17, 2009, 9:55 PM

    You people like a cold pillow? I use about 10 blankets and pull them over my head, too. I usually sleep on my teddy bear instead of my pillow, anyway. Yeah, I’m an overgrown kid.

  • Jason February 18, 2009, 5:09 AM

    I flip, and in regards to the “butt pillow”…. It happens..

  • AV March 2, 2009, 11:48 PM

    Definitely flip, have to sleep on a down pillow, sleep in a cold room by preference, and this I tend to run cold.

  • chris August 31, 2009, 12:00 PM
