Is breastfeeding on lying down position can harm my baby in anyway? Should I stop it?

1 Doctor Answered
While offering breast feeds, baby's body should be supported and head should be at a level little higher than the rest of the body. This would allow effective breast feeding and at the same time minimise risk of milk entering breathing tubes and lungs and causing cough.
