When you lie supine, your spine is strained, which puts pressure on your back and neck joints. Eight hours of joint pressure leads to some long-term consequences to your joints. The mattress bellyflop also affects your sleep, as joint pain—combined with the intense body heat you generate—rouses you from your deep sleep cycle.
You may not even be aware of the constant arousal and the sleep deprivation side effects.
But to be fair, stomach sleep has a few benefits. Stomach sleeping is also a better position than back sleeping for reducing heartburn and indigestion. Propping your noggin up on a fluffy pillow only increases the number of awkward angles to your neck position. Stomach sleepers with pillows that are too thin often compensate by adding their arms into the mix.

Both pillow strategies help keep your neck aligned, but each also present problems. First, you should never trust your sleeping position to your arms. They will move, shift, or fall asleep throughout the night. You can wake up to a sweat-soaked pillowcase. Instead, opt for a good stomach sleeper pillow made from breathable material that will keep your neck aligned. For stomach sleepers who prefer the no pillow approach, their mattress becomes their headrest.

As with pillows, a good mattress for stomach sleepers adjusts to your pressure points and effectively dissipates body heat. Good stomach-sleeper mattresses give way to the pressure of your head and stomach while supporting your neck and pelvis. The wrong mattress will exacerbate joint pain and keep you waking up throughout the night.

Look for a mattress that promotes good airflow and efficiently disperses heat. What stomach sleepers want is a mattress that is scientifically engineered to be soft where they want it but firm where they need it. This relieves pressure and offers support without giving up comfort. The weight distribution causes your pelvis to sway and sink into the mattress, throwing your back out of alignment.

Putting a flat pillow under your pelvis will help keep your back in a more neutral position, taking the pressure off the spine and decreasing lower back pain. Immediately upon waking up, do minutes of stretching to work out any stiff or kinked muscles. Take a lesson from yoga class and do downward-facing dog, happy baby, or similar yoga poses for some wonderful back extensions. Go easy, though! Because the downsides of stomach sleeping can outweigh the upsides, you may want to train yourself to assume another sleeping position , like side or back.
