I have been co-sleeping and nursing my son who is 3 months old. I generally wake up because of his crying/rooting , unswaddle him and put him to my breast while sitting on the bed. Of late i've noticed that my back hurts a lot and so does my shoulder. During the daytime when I nurse him, I usually sit in a chair.
I've tried nursing him while lying down but I havent found it very comfortable. Plus, I fear that he does not drink well in the lying down position. (In a seated position I can usually hear the swallowing and the sucking which is a lot less while lying down).
I've heard stories that women who co-sleep rarely ever wake up fully at night, they just stick a boob and then go back to sleep etc etc - that has never happened to me. How can i make the nursing at night be comfortable ? I dont have time to arrange a lot of pillows etc, because usually when my son wakes up he is quite frantic and I dont have a lot of time before he would wake himself up fully with his cries. He usually wakes up atleast 3-4 times at night. The last few days its been almost every 2 hours.
if you co-sleep with your child, what is your routine like?
