We used to lay in bed but now he thinks he's an acrobat so we nurse however we can!

She changes it up pretty often. It's always been some form of laying in bed though... Love the snuggle time! :)

For quite a while we'd both lay on our sides and just snuggle up to nurse. Now though, she wants to stand beside me with her little butt all up in the air and lean over me to nurse, lol.

Laying down! He tries to nurse upside down now, or standing up so his favorite is way different than mine! lol I had to use the football hold in the beginning because of my c-section but I've never preferred it.

I forget with my first born.

With this one we loved laying down in bed together.  It was great because I could prop something up on the bed and entertain myself as he dozed off.

Now that he's close to a year he lays on top of me so he can go back and forth.  We joke that one is Vanilla flavored milk and one is Chocolate.  So he rotates. :)

Laying back in bed with him cuddled next to me. It has evolved and gotten easier as he has grown.

Do you hold him in the crook of your arm, kind of thing? YOu know what I mean? If so, I tried that with Nathan when he was like 2 months and I LOVED it but him not so much....I had forgotten about it-I should try it again now that he's older!!! thanks!!!

Yes, exactly! We started with that position in the hospital after the C-section to keep him off of the incision and I could relax so I could sleep while he nursed constantly.
