...side-lying feeding is completely fine, I fe my daughter most of the time in this position, just make sure to burp baby after the feed...! Happy breastfeeding!!

Hi Shikha practically it's not recommended to feed baby lying beside it's harmful and dangerous too baby can choke up or you may fall asleep while feeding anything can happen dear I'm sorry I'm not scaring you but heard a very heartbreaking case.You can feed her lying beside once in while in day time when you are tired but don't in night dear it's for the safety of your baby I know it's really tiring and hard to get up in nights and feed but need to do that as we are mother☺Good luck Dhara Popat Sheeba Vijesh any suggestions?

i agree with Sheeba Rizvi dont take a risk to feed the baby while lying sideways dear.  tc 😊

i agree with Sheeba Rizvi completely... i too heard of some heartbreaking stories... you can start feeding laying down once baby is able to roll over...

keeping baby lil elevated you can shikha Singh cradle position in lying but you need to be alert....you can't sleep and keep an eye on baby...I had fed in lying sometimes but always lil elevated and reclined position
