How to Breastfeed When Lying Down

Find out how to do this common breastfeeding position.


If you prefer to nurse lying down, lie on your side with your knees bent. If it feels better to straighten your legs, place a pillow behind your back to help you stay up. Lay your baby down with her belly against yours, and place her neck on your bottom arm, allowing her head to tilt back so her chin is pressed into your breast and her nose is free.
