have a look here: http://raisingchildren.net.au/articles/breastfeeding_techniques.html

the most important thing is that your baby gets a good latch onto the breast and is able to take sufficient milk. Not sure about actual physical position!

Be honest would you like someone giving you a drink while you're flat on your back?

I know i wouldn't....

Hiya,

I'm sure I read somewhere that its not such a good idea but propped up a little should be ok as long as they're able to swallow.
