Getting baby to rotate to avoid back labour, simple solutions
Incidentally I sleep in the side lying pillow between my knees position, I find it most comfortable. If you don't have a birth ball yet, get one, remember that when sitting on an inflated birth ball your knees should be lower than your hips. Birth balls are not only good for labour and pre-natal exercise but they can also be used post-partum to rock the baby on. We did a lot of bouncing and rocking with our newborn on our birth ball. It takes up less space than a rocking chair, is cheaper and can be moved around with you if need be.
