The Mattress Wedge does the trick of blocking the gap between the mattress and headboard, however we're finding that it does fall into the gap often. I think it would be fine if you didn't spend much time sitting up in bed with your back resting on the headboard. I have a little one and often nurse in bed, so my side of the wedge falls into the 'abyss' more often than my husband's side. Still better than piling 20 pillows in the gap.
I wish I would have bought this sooner! It is seriously amazing! Our pillows have always falling through the crack between the mattress and headboard. However it got really bad when we purchased our newest mattress for some reason. You couldn't prop yourself up because pillows would fall through the crack, pushing the mattress up would only help for about a day. I finally had, had enough and went in search of something to solve the problem. I found this mattress wedge. It has pretty good ratings, but some said it didn't work. But I thought I would give it a shot anyway. The wedge arrived rolled up and compressed, I unrolled it and left it laying out for a few hours so it could regain its shape again. I left it laying for about 6 hours before giving it a try. At first it looked too small to work, but I put it in place anyway. To my surprise it actually fit nicely in the gap! I put all our pillows back up on the bed on the wedge and wondered if I would be waking up with everything...
For years we have struggled with keeping are bed pillows from sliding into the crack between the beds head board and the mattress. We constantly had to reach down and pull out the pillows from the crack, then we would have to push the mattress up against the headboard. This was a daily routine and it got so old. This product isn't perfect it's cheaply made and not a perfect fit it should be wider, however I gave it a five star rating because I could not find another product like this one. It also does what it's supposed to do which is fill in that space and no more pillows stuck between the mattress and headboard anymore.
