The seven best sleeping positions for couples who love cuddling, but also want a good night's sleep: 

1. 'Eye' see you

This sleeping position occurs when you and your man face each other, seemingly gazing into each other's eyes, even in sleep.

The two of you to touch all or some of the front of each other’s bodies. You have access to touch each other with your feet, legs, knees, torso and chest.

But you can both give each other as much room to breathe as you feel most comfortable, ensuring a good night's sleep.
