Comfortable Breastfeeding While Lying Down

f you learn how to breastfeed lying down, it could give your back some much needed rest. You should lie down on your side, supporting your head with a pillow or two. Lie your baby on the side as well, making sure his/her nose is level with your nipple. Once both of you are positioned, bring the baby closer to yourself so that his/her chin is touching your breast and the head is tilting back a little. To change the side on which you are feeding you can roll on the other side carrying your baby with you.
