    Default How tough is to breastfeed lying down?

    What are things should one make sure of, so that it's done correctly?

    Quite honestly, I never was able to breastfeed lying down when my boy was little. Now that he's older and can support his own head, I don't even need to latch him on anymore. I just get him somewhere in the vicinity of the boob and he grabs it and gets to work. We fall asleep all the time that way now. So if you don't get it now, don't hesitate to try again. It really is a lifesaver at night.

    the only bad part is that if I want to lay down on the ground facing him, he automatically thinks he's going to get a snack!

    I BF lying down every chance i get - it was never hard for me. When i am home, it is the best position. But, my boy has reflux so it isnt great for him,...

    Check out my post about this too - I just updated it with my own experience. You can see how things change after just a couple of weeks, so when you are ready to try, if it it too hard at first, give it a few weeks and try again!
