It is recommended that a person should own 6-10 pillows for their bed for comfort, but the average person usually only sleeps with 2.2 pillows. A common notion is that we only need pillows to rest our heads on, but in reality, there’s more to these fluffy cushions that we sleep with. Sleeping with a pillow between your legs can help your body in multiple ways and help you sleep better.

If knee pain often keeps you up at night, perhaps it is time to start sleeping with a pillow between your legs. The cushioning helps you relax and can ease your pain. If you sleep on your back, place the pillow under your knees, or if you sleep on your side, try placing it between your knees.

Falling asleep incorrectly does more harm to our body than we realize and can cause back, hip, and joint pain. Sleeping with a pillow between your legs reduces the pressure on your lower back and spine. If you sleep on your back, keeping a small pillow below your spine may also help you keep your body aligned in a good posture. If a normal pillow is not enough, specially made pillows are available online that can help you sleep better.
