    I am the same as previous posters, I found it hard to get it down pat when dd was small, but now 90% off our feeds are lying down. I do the positions in the photos. Just laying on my side with dd nice and close facing into me. I've never tried feeding in the carrier as I never use one, it hurts my back too much, my hubby always uses the carrier instead. Good luck!

    Same as PP. I couldn't quite mater lying down until dd was a about 3mths. Even then it never felt all the comfortable. I think my nipples are just in the wrong place for it to be successful.

    I did feed her in the stretchy wrap a few times. Attach first wearing half of it loosely. Then stretch over the rest for more support. I still had to hold her but took some of pressure off my back & arms if we were walking around especially since she was a slow feeder. I did all of my Xmas shopping like this with DF usually pushing a pram full of shopping.
