Breastfeeding Positions for Newborns


Hello Mamas!

Before getting the hang of nursing and finding a good latch and so on, you’ll first need to experiment with a few different breastfeeding positions. There are so many different ways to hold a baby while nursing and you’ll have to try them all out to see which one works best for you. Keep watching for more breastfeeding tips!

Newborn Breastfeeding

Here, I’ve shown you some recommended baby nursing positions according to the AAP. These include the football hold for breastfeeding (often recommended for moms of twins) and the breastfeeding cradle hold, which I personally find works the best for me. It’s good to remember to alter your hold and ease up pressure on your arms and upper and lower back. For more on how to breastfeed, check out the rest of my video!

How did you like to hold your baby when breastfeeding? Did you alternate between different nursing positions? Please comment below!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check back for more! xo

    The most important in breastfeeding is good preparation! I had so many questions about breastfeeding when my son was born. I was lost and depressed because somehow it was very difficult for me. I felt that I won’t handle it. I was searching the net and I have found an awesome ebook HOW TO MAKE BREASTFEEDING PLEASANT AND EASY from this website http://www.parental-love.com It made me stronger and I knew I could deal with all these problems I had. I am sooo happy to say that I made it! I was breastfeeding my boy for 18 months! I wouldn’t do it without this guide! I only regret I didn’t know about it and read it before my son was born
