Nighttime nursing?

Those of you who are co-sleepers and have nighttime nurslings, do you stick to one side or do you change sides during the night? If you change sides, do you move baby or do you move yourself? I find myself mainly nursing on the right side because moving him or moving myself always results in one of us being woken up and having a hard time going back to sleep...but now my poor left one is noticeably smaller than the right one...oops! So how do you mamas handle the nighttime nursing?

Re: Nighttime nursing?

Once my supply is somewhat regulated and I don't have giant boobs, I just lay on one side but still switch boobs in the night. I prefer to roll over but sometimes just don't want to. But I rarely ever just nurse on one boob all night long.

I switch once in awhile, usually if I notice he's not getting any from the one side he's been nursing on. Naturally one of my boobs has always been smaller than the other (as it is with many women) so this doesn't really bother me.

I alternate. Usually I roll in for right breast feeds and will hold for left unless just extremely too tired then will roll

I alternate. I pull DS on top of me and scoot over. He falls back asleep real quick though.

It's been 8 years, but I alternated. After he nursed I would move DS on the side he needed to nurse on next. That way he could help himself!

I switch sides, but leave him on the one side. I just lean over a lot more for the breast "on top."

I alternate as well. We have a king size bed so I climb over her for the next feeding so she does not wake up
