Conditional, breastfeeding mothers need to change
positions while they are not feeding. They can sleep according to their comfort. However, when they are feeding then they need to lay side se side position some
mothers, particularly larger breasted women, find they will need to roll themselves and their baby over to their other side to feed from the second breast, whilst others will find that once they have fed from the lower breast they can just
lean forward and feed from the top breast without changing sides. If you do choose the second alternative you will need to make sure that the lower breast is well drained before switching to the upper breast so that blockages in the milk ducts to not occur.
