The ideal...: ....Position for breast feeding is which ever position works best for you and your baby, so long as you are both comfortable and he is nursing well. The best position for bottle feeding is sitting partly upright in your lap. Never feeding him lying flat on his back, and never prop the bottle up on anything to hold it for him.
