I do not think I can sleep without a pillow, and never tried it. If I used more than one pillow will develop a neck ache which stings all day. What about you?

I use 2 pillows, the bottom one for height and the top one is rolled up to fill in the space where my neck hits the pillow so it is not crooked while sleeping. I hate it when I have to get new pillows and break them in because I can't sleep well during that time and my neck will hurt the next morning. This last time I broke in one new pillow at a time using the new one on the bottom with an older one I could roll up on top. That helped. I have found that as long as I can have a pillow under my neck that way I can sleep but generally if I have to sleep somewhere new and know ahead of time, I will take my own pillows with me.

I usually sleep with just one pillow, and its a fairly flat one too. I used to sleep with two great big deep pillows, but I got a lot of neck-ache. Now I limit myself to one and I sleep much better. I can sleep without and I think it might actually be better for the breathing. Most important for me is to have a firm mattress. Can't stand it if I have to sleep on a soft mattress because I get terrible back-ache the following day. Take care

it's hard to sleep without a pillow. i sleep with three pillows so i find it quite hard not to sleep with even one. pillows make me feel comfortable so i sleep with one for my head, one for my arms, and one for my legs.

Hi ya bvdev234 I like to have a plump pillow but like you if I have two pillows my neck will hurt the next day. I have tried to sleep with no pillow and that is not comfortable either.
