Breastfeeding Lying Down

You can use the breastfeeding lying down position if you want to lie down along with your nursing baby. Lie down on one side and give yourself support so that you are comfortable. Position the baby so that your stomachs face each other. 


Breastfeeding Lying Down

Your nipple should be opposite your mouth. The nursing baby can feed on your lower breast. Most mothers like to reposition themselves on their other side to feed from the other breast. You can cuddle your baby on your chest, support her head and gently roll yourselves over. Make sure she is still positioned well in relation to your breast.
