Re: in bed feeding

I put lo on a body pillow so he's nursing off the top boob first off, and then also I have his head slighly lower down my body than my boob so his head is slightly tipped up (and his nose a little bit away) from my boob. It works well because I use a body pillow anyways, so I can still tuck it between my legs at the bottom and snuggle him with my arm while he eats (and I sleep). We've been doing it this way since he was about 2 weeks old, and he's almost 4 months now. This also helps me remember where he is in my sleep, if that makes sense, so I don't throw a blanket over him or squish him.
