Tom, thank you for the reply.

 

I asked that because "sleep with a pillow" sounded Portuguese-like to me. It seems that when you use "with" it must be completed with a complement such as "with a pillow between your legs" or even "under your head" but not only "with a pillow". I had found in the dictionary sth like: I lie my head IN a pillow....so, I came up with that question, since there was no example that suited my doubt.

 

Thank you a lot for your willingness in helping.
