Breastfeeding 101

3. Football hold:

Your baby’s legs are tucked under your arm on the same side as the breast you’re nursing from. Hold your baby with that arm (on a pillow to lift him or her up), and use your other hand to cup your breast.

4. Side-lying position:

A good position if you’re nursing in the middle of the night. Lie on your side with a pillow under your head. Baby should face you, head in line with your nipple. Use your hand on the side you’re not lying on to cup your breast if you need to. You may want to place a small pillow behind your baby’s back to hold her close.
