'Very young and beautiful girl having her dinner' by FidlerJan

I really enjoy the intimacy of breastfeeding while lying down. Baby and I have fallen asleep many times like this; it's very relaxing.

Which is your favourite breastfeeding position?

Feeding lying down worked best for me when my babies were brand new, and I still prefer it for when they are going to sleep (and often drift off myself whether I mean to or not). For toddlers I like to feed them sitting upright in my lap, or in my Ergo carrier. That also worked well with my son when he was younger and used to spit the milk back up a bit. He chucked up a lot less when fed in an upright position.
Lying down. It's comfortable and baby goes off to sleep easily.
That depends on the age of the baby and their habit. Some will spit the milk out if you lie down.
I haven't had that issue...yet. Hehe.

I love toddler acrobatics on the boob lol but for myself, my favourite position is sitting here, doing my thing on the computer, entertaining a baby with the boob.
In a big, comfy chair, which would 'push-back' & lo! footstool would appear! I had to have something that was suitable to ME, as I HATED bf'ng to the nth degree!
If it wasn't for the 'goodness' baby got from it, I would NEVER have done it! I lasted 6 months' with my first, & 3 months' with my second! I stopped when I wanted to, in agreement with my Paediatrician!

I now use that chair to read my newspapers', & it's still very comfy, but I DID look after it. It turns '30' this year, same as my handsome 6'4" son!
When feeding my children many years ago, my favourite position was: upright, private and with a light shawl over child and "tuckshop" when feeding in public.
