How to Breastfeed
Proper cradle hold positioning and latching-on help
Position Yourself Properly
It’s easiest to get started breastfeeding the first few times if you are sitting up.
- Sit up in bed, in a comfortable armchair, or in a rocking chair.
- Pillows are a must: Use them behind your back, under your elbow, and on your lap to support the baby.
- Use a footstool to bring your knees up or use pillows under your knees if you are sitting up in bed.
You should be relaxed with none of your muscles straining.
