    Default Acceptable BFing Position?

    When DS feeds in the middle of the night, I'm often too sleepy to prop myself up and feed him using the crossover or cradle position. Instead, I've resorted to putting him mostly on his belly across my chest and feeding him that way. When he unlatches, I'll burp him while still in that position in order to keep the feeding as calm and quiet as possible.

    I just wanted to ask if this is acceptable, or if I really should have my back more propped up when I feed him.

    If it's working for you both, then keep at it. Congrats on your bf success!
