Hey fellow MyLotters! Okay, so this morning I realized my bolster fell down my bed and wondered, hmm, do other people use a bolster as well for hugging when they sleep? So I am asking you guys, do you use a bolster or need anything to hug when you sleep? Are you still hugging it when you wake up or does it fall down your bed or you roll to the other side leaving your bolster or pillow there? Happy MyLotting and Have a NICE day!

I sleep with stuffed animals. I tried to stop once, shortly after I had my son, but found myself cuddling with him, and when he grew up, he had all sorts of stuffed animals that grandparents had given him. He started giving them to me to sleep with. I find that how I wake up and where whatever stuffed animal I'm sleeping with ends up differs from night to night. But, usually I fall asleep with a teddy bear or some other animal hugged in my arms.

Oh Hey Boofybutt! Hahaha! Hilarious! Your kid is so generous! I mean little kids don't give away their stuffed animals when they are young! Hahha! It's kinda funny how you can hug a pillow while falling asleep and in the morning, next thing you know its on the floor or at your feet! xD Happy MyLotting and Have a nice day!

Ya, I was blessed with wonderful children for the most part. They do have their days, but are in general very generous and loving.

Haha! My little sister isn't like that at all! She s quite mean and she's still quite young! 10 years old I believe or turning ten in july! When my parents or me or my brother asks a simple question she shouts and says I DONT KNOW!! bla bla bla and other things. She really has no respect at all.

hi there! i would need one or two pilows when i'm trying to sleep... sometimes to hug when i have something on my mind but more often it's to cushion my head when i'm watching the television or reading a novel before sleeping. then often, in my sleep, i would move my pillows away from me as i just want to sleep flat on my tummy or on my side. depends on how big the bed is, but it's very rare that the pillows would fall from the bed... more like going to one corner, while i'm at the other side. have a nice day too!

Hey Mylesnarvaez! Haha! Good to see you again! hmm, usually when I sleep I have two pillows, a bolster and a pillow for my head! but on those times where I usually have 1 pillow and I have to make this tricky decision to use it for my head or to hug it, I would usually use it to hug while going to sleep! It just feels better and I don't really mind if there isn't anything under my head when I go to sleep as I move alot ahah! Have a nice day as well! Happy mylotting!

hey, how's school? i guess given a choice, i'd also prefer to hug a pillow than to sleep on it. but i can do without a pillow. that's why most often, who ever is sleeping with me would get all the pillows. hehe

Hey emilie! I really do agree with you on that! In my opinion, when you are not hugging a pillow when going to bed, it kinda feels weird and uncomfortable! I don't like laying on my back sleeping that's why I lay down facing the side with a pillow! Have a nice day and Happy MyLotting!

I still sleep with my pillows and bolster being hugged by me at night.For me it is quite hard to sleep without hugging anything. Maybe because it gives me the sense of security and comfort during sleep.Surprisingly when I hugging bolster to sleep it keeps me warm throughout the night I rarely fell down from my bed when I do so.

Hey Fasyahime! Haha! I as well don't sleep well when I don't have something to hug all through the night! It just feels quite odd and uncomfortable! It would usually take a a long long time to fall asleep if I don't have something to hug! A big Pooh huh? I bet its from your BoyFriend! Waaaa!! Hahhaa! =P Happy Mylotting!

Yes, i must hug a pillow when i am sleeping. I think it has become a habit for me because i have been hugging pillow/bolster since i was a baby. I feel more secure when hugging a pillow. If i do not have another pillow/bolster i can't sleep at all. I will be tossing and turning the whole night.

Hey Tessalim! I believe I have been hugging a bolster while going to sleep since I was a baby as well, but I'm not really sure since you don't really remember things when you're still really really young. I as well can't sleep well when I don't have anything to hug. I would usually take a long time to fall asleep. It looks like you are new here so I would like to WELCOME YOU TO MYLOT! This place is awesome, so be active as much as possible and post as much as possible as well! Happy MyLotting!

haha hey ahslack! Looks like we're kinda the same! If I don't hug something while going to bed it takes a long while to fall asleep like sometimes an hour or longer! and the same as you when I wake up my bolster is usually on the ground or somewhere near my feet! xD Happy Mylotting and have a great day!

yes i will sleep while hugging a pillow . its not just to hug my pillow but its my childhood habit of hugging the pillow when i go to sleep .it gives me a feel that i am with my beloved ones . so i think there is nothing wrong in hugging the pillow while sleep ... for me its a good habit instead to feel that we are left alone the pillow gives you the feel that there is some one to take care while we sleep ...

Hey Yuvaraj! Looks like we're kinda the same on the childhood habit thing of hugging a pillow while going to bed! It does feel good while hugging a pillow because sometimes when I close my eyes I imagine it's my girlfriend that I haven't seen for quite some time now because it's summer break. Looks like you're new here so I would like WELCOME YOU TO MYLOT! Mylot is an awesome place to be in with an amazing community which is just really kind and friendly! Happy Mylotting and have a nice day!

I want to hug a gurl when sleeping. hehehe I need to have two or more pillows when I sleep. These are very helpful for me to have a good sleep. It makes me relaxing and I could immediately fall asleep when I have pillows with. Sometimes, I put my pillows at my legs and hug them using it. hehehe

Hey rsanders! Haha! Hugging a girl would just be awesome! Haha! I usually have 2 pillows when I go to sleep a pillow for my head and a bolster for hugging! A bolster is what you need because it's long enough to reach your feet until your face which is awesome! Happy Mylotting!

I don't hug any pillows.. I usually only have one on my bed, anyway, so it wouldn't really work out.

Hey Maezee! You should try it! It's quite comfy and warm! It's just like hugging someone ;), Sometimes when I fall asleep at night I just imagine my pillow as my girlfriend! It's quite nice! If I had only one pillow I would usually not use it as a pillow but as something to hug all through the night! Happy MyLotting! and have a great day!

I don't do this but I sleep on 3 pillows at night. I cannot sleep flat because I cannot breathe.

Hey Lulu, Hmm, you're quite lucky! When I sleep without a pillow it kinda feels odd and uncomfortable which really prevents me from sleeping. Why can't you breathe when you sleep flat on your back?

I do have two pillows just because of this reason.I sleep on the one and hug the other.I know it may sound a bit strange but in fact I miss somebody to hug so my pillow feels well hugged by me.

No, I can't do so. I don't need anything to hug while I sleep. When I feel asleep, I just want comforts and relaxation. At that point of time, I just want to sleep, no hindrance even I don't bother what is there near me, soft toys or teddies, I don't like at that time. I sleep just using one pillow to get sound sleep. Thanks!

hey wow I honestly thought that I was the only one that did that. I have three pillows but the top one I always fold over and cuddle and mostly I wake up still cuddling it but further down the bed! And yes sometimes it does slip down the back of the bed and when it does I always wake up. It is great to know someone else does this

I can sleep well if i have pillow in my side and another pillow in my feet. I am much comfortable when i have pillow in my feet because i feel the softness of pillows. My hubby is working abroad so i dont have anyone to embrace, good that there are more pillows in our room. I dont think i can sleep with only one pillow.

I think I always sleep hugging a pillow or a bolster.I feel more secure and comfortable by doing so.Hugging it makes me feel warm and easy and nice to sleep.Furthermore we can also keep ourselves in position when sleeping and will not fall of the bed.I am still hugging it until now though I am already 19 years old.If my girlfriend is around I would hug her rather than the bolster or pillow ofcourse.
