    A CURE for knee pain, calf ridge, shoulder squeeze AND heel pressure!!!

    Sleep on your side.

    Really! If you haven't tried it, do so. I'm a 100% side sleeper in a bed. I can't possibly lay on my back in a bed for more than 30 seconds! But I can sleep very comfortably on my back in a hammock. So, perhaps the reverse will be true for you! I prefer to put my face toward the edge of the hammock with the back of my head toward the center. I find the sweet spot by adjusting my diagonal lay and it's good night, Irene!

    Just thought I'd put it out there... . Good luck! (that's me sleeping in my hammock)

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.

    I will have to try that. I to am a side sleeper in bed but can sleep on my back in a hammock. As long as I lay diagonal with my legs in the number four shape, I do just fine and can alternate depending on which knee is bent. If I ever just end up straight in the hammock it is knee pain for sure.

    One of the reasons I am so fond of bridge hammocks. Not every hammock I have tried makes it easy to side sleep, but never a problem in my bridges.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I relax or hang out in my hammock on my back, but when it comes to sleeping... it's gotta be the side
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
