Didn't have this problem with Alice. I nursed her in bed, and it was fine. Nursing Rose in bed is keeping my back and neck in knots. Hurts! Anyone else with this problem?

I'm sorry; that's no fun! I find nursing in bed the most comfortable way. Hope you can figure out a way to get more comfortable.

I can buy myself an extra few hours of sleep in the mornings if I nurse her in bed. I don't usually do it though because I can never get that comfortable.

I'm sorry it's not comfortable for you, I love it. I thought I would love sleeping on my stomach again after not being able to, but it actually hurts my back now.

Did you get an epidural, Julie? I couldn't sleep on my stomach for almost 3 years after Alice was born.

I think the problem is the select comfort mattress. We had a normal one with Alice, and nursing was no problem. This time I'm having to balance the entire time on my side of the air mattress, and it keeps my back and neck tense. Guess I'll be sitting up in the middle of the night to nurse.

Yeah I did! Thanks for telling me that, now I know. DH said it was because of our mattress (well actually our memory foam topper on TOP of our tempurpedic)...he wants to take it off but I think the mattress is too firm without it. Maybe you could try a mattress topper?

The mattress is great when I'm alone on it. We have the dual one. His side is one way, mine the other. His is super deflated, and mine is firm so when I move to accommodate her, I'm constantly sliding downhill. (He passes out in the recliner for most of the night then crawls into bed at 4-5 in the morning so his side is very low.) Not sure the extra padding would help.

My epi was in a different spot this time(maybe that's why it completely failed? lol), and I'm not having the lower back/hip problems this go. It was torture when I used to wake up on my tummy. I had to move very slowly, roll over, and gently lift my knees to my chest to try and stretch my back.

Julie, I used to only sleep on my stomach but now it hurts my back too. I sleep with a body pillow now and it's the only way I can get comfy.

I nurse in bed but I don't lay down. I put pillows up against the headboard and lay back on that. I usually fall asleep like that nursing and wake up when he lets go. Maybe try something like that?
