I wear the Dreamwear Full Face mask and even though the manufacturer's description of the mask says it is good for sleeping on your side I have not been able to figure out how to do this. When I try my mask leaks and comes askew. I have tried scrunching up my pillow so the back side of my head is the only part on the pillow and I have tried using my hand to support my head without letting the mask touch.The mask is up off the pillow as best as I can get it. Nothing I have tried works. Has anybody tried the CPAP sleeping pillow that has the cut outs or come up with a way that you sleep on your side that might work for me with my type of mask?

Go to Walmart and get one of their cheap memory foam pillows and do some surgery on it to cut out a place for the mask.
Essentially make your own cpap pillow with the cutouts.
Much cheaper option and you can customize it to suit your head, face and mask.

I always just sleep towards the edge of the pillow so it doesn't mash on the mask.

When I was using the Dreamwear mask, I found it worked the best using a fairly soft pillow. I ended up ordering a couple of king sized "My Pillow"s via a local shopping channel. Not a fan of the guy who owns/runs "My Pillow" (major Trump supporter, bible thumper, etc.), but I do like the pillows! I no longer use the Dreamwear mask, but still using the pillows.
