Do you use a nursing pillow?

not anymore, but I do when they're newbornsFavorite nursing position is probably side laying, especially with how squirmy he can be now.

I don't use a nursing pillow. I planned to use my pregnancy pillow and them just didn't bother.

Normally, she nursed sprawled out on her back on my lap (her choice). sometimes she'll lie curled up on her side instead.

Nope. But I'll probably use on my second.

I used a Boppy with my son, and it was a life saver for me while I recovered from my c/s. Since I'm having another c/s I'll be using it again. Although side lying was by far my preferred position back then when I wasn't using the pillow.

I nurse laying down on my side with my bottom arm under my baby's neck and my top arm cuddling him. His mouth latches on right away to my top breast and we both are so relaxed we fall right to sleep this way. My boy turns one in less than a month. We started nursing this way when he was about 1.5-2 months old. I cannot recommend this enough! Co-sleeping has let us all sleep beautifully since he was very little...I've actually never experienced one of those (up all) nights that every single person warns you about before having a baby. We've NEVER had to be up all night doing this and I'm a much better mom due to being able to sleep well.

Not recommended if you are overweight, a heavy sleeper, drinker/smoker, or using medications that may make you sleep deeper.
