This is the sixth in a series of posts and videos describing how effective positioning promotes effective latching. In this video I describe the side-lying position. This position can be helpful for nighttime feedings because often the mother can doze or even sleep while her baby breastfeeds. This position can be helpful for mothers with a fast flow or heavy milk ejection reflex. It can work for very young and older babies, although many first time mothers need a few weeks to a few months before they feel confident with this position.
