The benefits of side-lying breastfeeding

While it is recommended that the safest place for your baby to sleep in is a cot in your room,

The Lullaby Trust gives great guidance for families wishing to co-sleep safely;

Helps facilitate relaxation if your baby is fractious or tense at the breast.

Useful for mothers recovering from a caesarean section birth as you do not need to rest the weight of your baby on your abdomen

If you have a forceful let-down reflex, the side-lying position can help your baby manage the flow of your milk
