I use 2 pillows while sleeping in the night. This is the habit which I developed of late and earlier I used to have only one under my head. How many pillows do you use under your head while sleeping?

Most can get by with one pillow for sleeping.Some though like 2 or three pillows so they can move around the bed and still have neck support and comfort without moving just one pillow around.Also some like to have 2 or more pillows to elevate their head as they find sleeping on just one is to low for their neck.I personally have one large pillow that is a perfect size and covers the whole width of the bed and it does well when i am sleeping and im comfortable in the morning.

At least two. One for the head and one for embracing. I cannot sleep with one pillow. But the more pillows I have, the more comfortable my sleep is.

Me cannot sleep without 2 pillow at my side,2 pillows at my head, 3 pillows in my feet. sounds like funny right but its true.There was one time we have a trip to my aunts house and staying & sleeping there for almost one week .During night time when we are going to sleep, only limited pillows she appropriate for us, you know what i did is when my mom and sister are sleepy and there comes a time that they are snoring because of too much sleepy, i get their pillows slowly and used it as my pillow thats why every morning when they are wakeup already they would say that where is my pillow? i used it lastnight and there they would say look at my young child she get it lastnight serve as her pillows..and my mom and sister would laugh and have fun. What color of pillows would you like to use? can you sleep withouut hugging pillows?

I also use two pillows while sleeping. One under my head and the other one off to the side for back support. My hubby also uses two, but he puts the second one between his knees.

I like yourself sleep with two pillows at night. I have found this to be the exactly cushioning, comfort and height that feels the most comfortable for me. I had asked this question to my doctor because when I used to have a bad back and the pain would keep me awake at night. He had suggested that I try a number of things one being that I make sure that my mattress if flipped every 6 months, that if that doesn't work I purchase a better mattress and also to try sleeping with different number of pillows and if that does help. So usually I sleep on my stomach and my hand is usually under the bottom of the pillow or in between pillows.

Well when I'm on my bed, I usually have 3 pillows beside me, but what I really like about it is that I have one really big pillow which is equivalent to two that I really like sleeping on, hehehehe. But its not that I can't sleep without it, it just feels so comfortable. But elsewhere I can sleep on anything even without pillows especially if I'm really tired already.

I prefer sleeping with two pillows. I feel really uncomfortable with only one pillow. I really don't like sleeping with one pillow or with more than three pillows.

I used to sleep with two pillows, one is for me to squeeze and the other is for my head of course, sometimes I use the extra one on my head too because I have problems with breathing so I need thicker pillow to help.

I use only one pillow and when my partner is next to me then I don't need a pillow I just sleep on his arm which I find much better than the pillow.;-) Before he was a bit restless but now he is used to that, he just stretch his arm when I am going on bed.

I use 3 pillows because the one on the bottom usually ends up getting pushed into my couch while I'm asleep, otherwise 2 would work just fine for me.

I can only sleep with one pillow. I feel uncomfortable if my head is raised too much. I do know of plenty of people that use two pillows to sleep but I do not.
