Bed wedge pillow – A bed wedge is an angled pillow that slopes neck and head upwards to reduce complications of sleep apnea and other sleep problems. A wedge can range from 8 to 12 inches high at its highest part and the angle of the wedge may vary depending on what you like. With different types of foam and range from soft to hard, wedges can also be made. This type of pillow is not hard to do.
How to make the best wedge pillow? So, visit a foam store (or upholstery shop) and have someone cut a piece of foam in a wedge shape for you. Pillow width can range from 36, 30 or 24 inches. Choose the width that matches your bed pillows. Next, set the height of your foam block based on the amount of slope you want. Ask the seller to cut foam on the diagonal so that the thick part will be the top edge of the pad and the thin part at the bottom. A foam block will make two pillow wedges. It is better to have your diagonal cut with the store’s specialty wire or cutters for perfect shaping.
