    How do you sleep?

    I was interested to know how y'all sleep in your hammock. I find I am enjoying sleeping on my side, which I didn't think I could do in my hammock. My hips go much lower than when I'm in bed but it doesn't seem to bother me, in fact I love the lack of pressure points.

    I voted for side because that's how I start. Once asleep I migrate to my back and that's the position I'll be in when I wake.

    I'm a side sleeper at home, and sometimes in the hammock. But I usually fall asleep on my back, mainly because on the side, I wake up with cold spots from my TQ riding up my side. Its easier to tuck under my back than under the side I'm laying on.
