Breastfeeding Positions

There are as many ways to breast feed as there are women in the world! The best way to find the correct breastfeeding position for you, is to do some research and try them out.
For babies with reflux and other health issues, the traditional "cradle hold" may not work well. Both of my daughters were/are nursed on an incline. I had/have them almost in a sitting position with their bottoms resting on my thigh.
There is also the "football hold", which I did try with my older daughter....but it was not very comfy for us.
Which ever position you choose, make sure it is comfy for you and your baby. If it is not......try another one. Or you can make up your own, like I did, and give it your own special name! I call mine "The Jacky sit." hehe
