It is ok as long as you practice this safety measures, ensure that you are sober and not taking any medications that may make you sleepy, it needs to be a flat surface so ensure that your breast and the baby's face are on the same level.

Keep your nipple in line with the mouth and have baby latch on. You and your baby should be facing each other belly to belly.
