Q.

Breastfeeding when laying

Hello can you please let me know if it is safe to breastfeed when laying down with an infant? I know that they usually say giving a bottle to a baby while laying down is bad for the ears and that the milk sits on the chest. Is it the same for breastfeeding?

It is always best for your baby not to feed while lying flat while he is being fed. So the direct answer to your question is Yes.
