After not being able to bf laying down for over 10 weeks or so (ever since DS was a tiny newborn) we have turned a corner somehow and he now is an expert again. It has made night feedings and naps so much more relaxing being able to feed him laying down with him / co-sleeping.

Thought I would share in case others have been unable to do so. Especially since so many suggest it as a way of making bf easier it was really disheartening to not be able to feed him like this.

He would fuss and push/pull away from the breast and get very distressed. I couldn't even co-sleep with him as he would get very distressed by constantly trying to feed (unsuccessfully) trying to feed!

I continued to try every now and then .......and then last week (13 weeks old) he all of a sudden relaxed, lay on his side and fed!! Have been doing it ever since and it is great grin

Thanks!! Feel a little silly to be so excited about it it has been great, especially being able to lay in bed till 8am, instead of him grumbling and making us get up at 6!!
