Re: Co-sleeping, b****** and switching sides - how do you do it?

This is very funny as I read the post and thought, I had an epiphany last night as I nursed from both sides without rolling over!!! , I'll share this with the person posting and LOL...everybody does it! The funny thing is this is my sixth baby and the first time It ever dawned on me that I could just do both boobs without moving!!!

I have tried to nurse from both on one side, but because I have to lean towards the baby to do so I'm afraid I'll fall asleep and smush him. I just roll us both over to switch sides.

I voted something else b/c we do both. Sometimes I nurse dd on the one side both breasts and sometimes we both roll over. I prefer to just roll with her, it is more comfy, but sometimes it isn't safe. Like if we are traveling and it isn't safe to have her on the edge.

I use to just roll him over, but then one night I accidently fell asleep and knocked him off the bed! Our bed sits pretty high off the ground too! He's fine, but I'm severly traumatized, so now he stays in the middle when I nurse and then goes into the bedside sleeper! I can still see the image of his arms and legs going over the side!

Since DS has gotten big enough to crawl off the bed, he stays in the middle and nurses both sides from there. I also have v small boobs, so i am almost laying on my stomach to get the top one to him. picture laying on your tummy w/the top arm propped on a pillow so it makes a little nook for DS. i sleep, he eats. we're both happy!
