In brief: Any position
Getting yourself comfortable to feed is the first priority in breastfeeding.
Any position will do as long as you can provide your baby safely. If she can latch and you're not going to fall over, its the best position.

In brief: Varies
Most women will find that the babies will prefer one position on one breast and a different position on the other. Trial and error will determine this.
