I tried searching for a answer but everything that came up was for baby sleeping on it's tummy......I want to know if I sleep on my tummy will it affect my supply?
I have always been a tummy sleeper. At first with LO was younger he is 11m now I couldn't it was to uncomfortable but now it feels fine but I still don't allow myself to fall asleep that way but sometimes I wake up on my tummy.
I read once some where that sleeping on your tummy is equivalent to binding your breast and is the quickest way to decrease milk. I don't remember that source.
Do any of you sleep on your tummy's and have a normal supply?
My breast never feel full anymore (must be why it doesn't hurt to wake up on them anymore) but I always have letdowns when he nurses. And he always seems satisfied and he has always only nursed from 1 breast at a time. I haven't noticed a decrease.
I'd fall asleep so much faster if I would allow myself to assume my tummy sleep position.
