How to Breastfeed
Proper cradle hold positioning and latching-on help
Offer Your Breast to Your Baby
Your thumb and index fingers should form a “C” or “U.” Be sure your fingers are well behind the areola.
Support the breast as close to its natural height as possible while the baby latches on and throughout the feeding, with your thumb in line with the baby’s nose and four fingers on the other side of the breast.
Keep fingers and thumb well back from the nipple so they don’t get in the way as baby latches on.
