I only nurse my daughter on one side the whole night. But then again, she's two and mostly does it for comfort. When she was an infant we rolled over and switched sides.

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

With the boys, I'd roll them with me and switch sides. My dd is having problems with nursing (thrush, clamping the nipple) so I've been pumping for awhile and now finally, she's back on the breast. So, for now I think I'll sit up and nurse because we're using a nipple shield and I'm not sure I can do it well enough laying down. Make any sense? lol...

I nurse the bottom boob first, then kind of lean over and stay on the same side and just nurse from the top one. I've been doing that since her first night and it has worked well for us. I tried rolling a few times, but we are both more comfortable on our respective sides!

i roll us both over, but then i always put him back to the side of the bed with the bedrail. so i TEND to nurse more on that side at night, i think, so in the morning when DH gets up (i have about 15 minutes in bed still), i nurse DS on the other side to make sure things are "evened out" before i go to work in the morning!

We do the same thing. When DS was a newborn, my breasts were HUGE and buried him, so he slept on top of a pillow and I nursed him off my top breast. Now that he's a total chunk, he easily nurses off top and bottom without either of us moving.

I rolled with Owen and now am rolling with Teagan. It's just the easiest for us.

once we got the hang of laying down and nusing in the dark, I would roll with him on my belly, like Meg...
Now he sleeps straight through the night so I don't have to worry about it.
