So.. It seems depending on her position or if I am lying down I accidentally smother DD with boob. I notice her little nostrils just about suction themselves to my breast and she has to unlatch from feeding and take a big gulp of a breathe to recover. Sometimes I see it happening so hold my breast away from her nose a little but sometimes I don't notice until she is gasping for air and I feel awful.
Please tell me this isn't hurting her or causing any damage. It's just awful when it happens. Sometimes she wiggles her head a bit during a feed and what was a perfectly clear air way now is filled with boob- I feel terrible and of course don't want her breathing to be restricted.

Have you tried to put your hand on your breast to push back on your breast a little while she feeds so that your breast isn't touching her nose (do this the whole time she is feeding)

Like PPs I had to hold my b00b as well. When ds1 got a little bigger it wasn't such an issue (ds2 moved to bottles at 5 months). It's just one of those do what you gotta do situations.

Same as pp's always had to hold my boobs away from bubs nose when they were small, and my boobs were big!

I had the same problem. Weirdly when I wear a bra when feeding I find my boob is firmer and more supported and not as squishy. Not sure if that helps at all. Good luck :-)

I might have to feed siting up in bed instead so I'm less prone to falling asleep.

I do the same as PPs. I have a fear of smothering my baby with my boobs!
