Breastfeeding Tips:Different positions for breastfeeding

24 June 2010 No Comment

There are several different positions for breastfeeding, you need to make sure that you choose the most comfortable one for you and that gives your baby the best access to your breast.

You could try holding your baby across your lap and positioning her on a pillow or cushion to get the right height.  You can use either arm to hold her and ensure she is in the right position.

An alternative position is lying down with your bodies parallel to each other.  This is good for the early days or if you are lying in bed.

Another position for breastfeeding is to hold your baby underarm. This is particularly recommended post caesarean.
