I think comfort is the name of the game here--if you are nursing, you're going to be side-sleeping a lot, so make sure you have a safe and effective knee pillow. I like the kind that strap to your leg, so you don't have to worry about it drifting and becoming a problem for baby.


My baby sleeps in my bed with me. I get more sleep this way then if she slept in her own bed. When she wakes up during the night I just breastfeed her and she falls right back to sleep. I do not even have to get out of bed or turn on a little. She sleeps much longer and easier when she is sleeping in my bed and we have very little crying.
