    i suffer from bad neck aches and find it really uncomfortable feeding my lo at night just perching on the end of my bed. i am going tobuy a nursing chair but in the meantime, i prop my little one on my pillow making sure he's nice and straight and feed him laying down nxt to him. i find it much more relaxing especiallyy in the night when youre tired as well. is this bad? does anyone else do this? xx:blush:

    No that's fine, loads of people feed in bed, the midwives made me in my first week! Just make sure you keep yourself awake if he's on a pillow or take him off the pillow if you're happy to co sleep.

    I just lie Finn down next to me. Well, even if he's not next to me he'll find his way over to a boobie these days, lol.

    Yep, Those night feeds with him lying beside me is one of my fondest memories and found it the most comfortable feeding postion after my C Section. OH used to sleep on the sofa so we could co-sleep safely!
