Adjusting the breastfeeding position

best position to bottle feed


The lactation professional helps the new mom breastfeed in a more comfortable way. First, she places a pillow under the baby, so that the person can relax. She then places a baby blanket in between the baby and pillow to give a little bit extra support. Finally, she adds a thick burp cloth under baby’s head to provide additional support. Adjusting the position can significantly improve breastfeeding pain too. So ideally 1) position yourself comfortably (your back, your arms, your baby), 2) position baby close to you, 3) support your breast and then latch your baby onto your breast. Note: every situation is different and struggling breastfeeding parents should seek professional help as early as possible. Watch our video below:
