With my first I slept on my left side when I laid down but vast majority of the time I slept in the recliner because if I tried to lay down I would wake up about an hour later drowning in stomach acid. That would ruin sleeping the rest of the night.

With my second I slept on my left side. She was head down laying on my left side at about 5 months old and stayed that way the rest of the time. I couldn't breath lying on my back and on my right side wasn't comfortable. I was able to sleep laying down with the second one but I really preferred the recliner. ​

    I'm hoping when I am at that point, one of those crazy curvy full body pillows will save my butt, but at least we have a recliner just in case!
