For those of you who frequently nurse in bed/do the side-lying position, do you think it might affect your baby's latch. I mean, do you think they don't suck as effectively a la Dr. Newman's assymetrical latch. The reason I'm postulating this is b/c b/t months 5 and 6, DS didn't gain any weight at all and I was nursing him lying down all the time during that month.

I don't think it has any impact. My son was gaining weight like crazy the first 4 months, slowed down for a couple of months (but his length went crazy) and now he's gaining lots of weight again.
