At what age can we start breastfeeding the baby in lying down position. And how do we do it exactly? My girl is 4.5 months and doesn’t have a full neck support yet. When I try to breastfeed lying down i find it very uncomfortable.

You have to lay down in side position and keep baby to in side position with a support on back like a towel or small pillow you can see youtube vedio how to bf baby in laying position. Plz be careful not to fall asleep while feeding baby in laying position

Hey Resham.. I used to feed my son lying down at 3 months... If you keep trying you will get used to .. this helped alot to me as I could take rest.. but be careful that you you don't fall asleep and milk is not leaking or milk don't get into baby ears.. with little practice this is very helpful
