What position do you usually nurse in?

I've always only done the cradle hold. Or lying down when they get bigger and it's during the night.

I did the football hold a couple times when Liam was 2 months old to get rid of a clogged duct but I wasn't a fan.

Samantha is all about standing lately. She likes it while I sit on the step but even in bathtime, she stands and then bends over to nurse. It's pretty funny because she'll dance too. (Well, it's cute but sometimes it hurts because she tugs a bit too hard from time to time.) At naptime and bedtime, we lay down. When we are out and about, if she can't stand then she'll wrap her legs around me and nurse that way.

When Brayden was younger, I nursed him across my lap, usually on a pillow. Now that he's older and so much bigger, we always nurse lying down. Even if I could, he has no interest in laying on my lap like he used to.

Usually lying down in DD's toddler bed! if he happens to want to nurse outside of his room, it's cradle hold on a recliner

I've always used a pillow and nursed her on there for the left side and did the football hold for the right side. But now that's she older, we either nurse laying down or when I am sitting at the computer, she sits on my lap and nurses that way, I will have to get a pic, it's hilarious.

I'd sit indian style and she'd just lay across my lap. If she was going to sleep I would hold her like a baby.
