We did the same because Ashton is what I've began calling a "lazy nurser"! I had so much milk, that when he doesn't latch on correctly, I will get a plugged duct within an hour. I've had two horrible fevers from mastitis so far and he's only 2 months. It's made me work ever harder to make sure we get it right. I always lay down to nurse, and it works great for us!
