lying down to feed baby

This position was a god send. It allowed me to sleep through the night and feed my baby at the same time, i was able to have more quality time sleeping and less time having to get up to make bottles etc.

I preferred to feed my baby in this position than any other position. However because i had a c-section i was unable to use this position till baby was about a month old. That was because it hurt to lie down on my side because of the pressure on my incision and insides. Once everything started to heal nicely i was able to support myself with lots of pillows and cushions and it made breastfeeding in this position a lot easier.

I highly recommend this position to all mothers thinking about breastfeeding, it makes night time feeding such a breeze and you're actually able to get a good nights rest.
