all those of you who know me well will be tired of hearing my pillow woes by now. (like here or here) but the other day, i started wondering when kids start sleeping with pillows. and why do we start giving kids pillows? if we never gave them one, could they be content to sleep without one into adulthood? ben already shows signs of being a similar sleeper to me. it often takes him a long time to fall asleep and he just rolls around and around in his crib at bedtime. he wakes up many times in the night - we can hear him kicking his mattress and moving around. he's a fairly light sleeper waking at little noises. when he's woken up, he's instantly awake, standing up in his crib. none of this laying around trying to figure out what's going on. with all these similarities to me, why would i want to introduce him to the never-ending pillow search? maybe i won't ever give him a pillow and he'll be fine. as for me? the search may never end.
