Co-sleeping, b****** and switching sides - how do you do it?

Just curious. I nurse on both sides without rolling over, I just lean more for ds to nurse on the top side. I guess I just assumed that's how everyone did it, but my gf rolls her baby on to the other side at night when it's time to switch breasts...

i've never figured out to nurse from the top boob so he feeds on the left, lays on my tummy to burp and then we roll over! and that took a good while to figure out -LOL

altought the last few nights i "think" he's sleeping more at night bc i'm waking really full on one side!

Re: Co-sleeping, b****** and switching sides - how do you do it?

as she's gotten bigger & my bbs have gotten more limber i can now feed from both bbs w/o rolling over (heck, i can even lay on my back now - lol)....however, at night i tend to scoot her over & then get on the other side of her. it's not as elegant as the rolling solution, but that never worked well for us.

Same here. I also don't like feeding from the top boob because I'm worried I might squish him if I'm too tired. Would you believe that this is the first baby I have successfully BF laying down and he is my 4th. I would have gotten soooo much more sleep if I had figured this out about 8 yrs ago.

We roll. I probably could feed from both with him on the same side but I've gotten so used to rolling that it's just habit.

I voted "nurses on both sides without rolling over". This is how I do it with my toddlers, which is what I'm nursing now. When they were babies though, I would roll myself and them over when it was time to switch sides.
