I recently watched a documentary about grizzly bears in Alaska, and was particuarly interested in watching the mama bear who had twin cubs. When she wanted to nurse them (they would start getting all fidgety around her, just like my little "cubs"), she would just lie down on her back and let them go at it. SO, now we too are nursing "bear style." Luke and Jasper will suddenly start to panic, and I will just lay down on my back and lift my shirt. The boys kneel and nurse. It works very well.
Thought I'd share this postion idea with you all since I don't think I would have thought of it if I hadn't watched the bear in the video.
