Which position do you use, and how old is your little one? :)

Right now my 11 week old does well with a cradle hold. I think I've gone through phases of using all the different positions though, haha.

My son is 3 1/2 months and we use the cradle hold unless we are in bed, then it's lying down. I have never liked the football hold. It never felt comfortable with this ds or my older ds.

My son is 16 months. We usually use the cradle hold. He's started his nursing acrobatics so he'll nurse in crazy positions sometimes lol. We do side lying at night.

Cradle hold for us too unless it's bed time then we lay down. I also strongly dislike the football hold, felt very awkward. Joshua is 6 weeks old

cradle hold when I'm holding her sitting or walking around, sidelying or reclined nursing while in bed and tummy to tummy while babywearing

I actually like the football hold. My daughter actually nurses very well this way. I am scared to try nursing laying down at night. I am scared that i will fall asleep and roll on her. Only have been a mommy for 1 week so i am totally new at this.

My son is 13 months old and we use the cradle hold during the day. At night when I nurse him to sleep I nurse him laying down :) those are the only 2 positions we've ever used.

Haha well my Lilly is 13.months. so, we use any and every position she wants. Pretty much I have become a milk producing jungle gym. Lol

When she was little it was always cross cradle or cradle mostly. I also did laid back nursing .
Her current favorite is sitting in my lap and playing with her foot while nursing.
