Yep, the best way to get good rest is to learn to nurse lying down. Bring baby in bed with you at night to nurse. Check out Should I sleep with my baby? for some good info on sleeping and breastfeeding.

I see no problem with lying down with your child while breastfeeding. Just don't let your self roll over or forget to feed your child from the other breast. One word of advice don't make it to much of a habit or it will become were they are always wanting to come in a sleep next to you for that closeness.
