How many pillows are on your bed and do you use all of them when you sleep? My husband and I each have 2 pillows. We have the queen size pillows. He sleeps with both of his. I sleep with one and the second one usually ends up on the floor. If I sleep with two then my neck tends to get sore.

LOL I like this discussion. We also have four pillows, hubby and I, two each when we go to bed. But during the night he ends up moving one pillow away from under his head and I end up with three pillows. Very weird I know! Just a habit. I can't sleep hugging pillows and I'm sure three pillows are not good for me either but I can't help it! :)

Funny you should ask because I have 4 pillows of different sizes on my bed right now. I can't sleep with hugging a pillow so I surround myself with them :)

I do that if my husband isn't home when I go to bed. I'll use all the pillows and put them along my back. Makes me feel like he's there.

my husband and I both have 4 pillows... I have 1 feather, 1 "squishy" and 2 harder pillows.. I keep the 2 harder on the bottom, the feather on top, and the "squishy" one is rolled under my neck. My neck tends to hurt unless they are that way. My husband squishes 1 between his legs, hugs another and has his head on 2.

I sleep with three pillows; one lat one on the bottom, a fluffy one in the middle, and one on top just to make the stack a little higher. LOL I sleep with them all. Not enough pillows and I go nuts.

I like to have colourful and soft pillows on my bed but i don't use pillows when i am sleeping. I like to sleep flat with no pillows at all. Strange isn't it.

I have about ten of them on mine; I have one nice comfy soft one for sleeping along with another; I have a couple more; then a set for my youngest daughter that sleeps with me. I do get a headache if I don't sleep well on them. So have to be careful.

I have 3 pillows and I use them all. Two are under my head (they are not big ones, they lie pretty flat) and one goes under my leg and hip. I also have to use buckwheat pillows because now that I have tried them the regular ones just keep me tossing and turning all night long. My husband only sleeps with one pillow.

I put two below my head and one under my legs because I suffer from leg cramps. Very few can keep two pillows below the head, the trick is to have a big pillow and you should rest on it from shoulder up, that is your neck should not be hanging in the air but totally supported as well as your shoulder. I find it the most comfortable way to sleep.

I currently have 3 pillows. 1 for my head, another to hug and 1 bolster pillow. But I have been thinking of buying another one because I like sleeping with lots of pillows.
