    Question Sleeping on my stomach?

    Quick question. I was wondering if sleeping on my stomach and breast would lower my supply?

    I don't know about lowering supply, but could cause plugged ducts.

    I'm a stomach sleeper and it was difficult for me not to sleep that way. But I did it because mastitis is no fun from what I hear!

    I do it now though. No problems so far.

    I was afraid of the same thing in the beginning so I didn't do it. DS is 10.5 months old and I do sleep on my stomach now. I'd say wait until you're further into the game just to avoid any problems.
