Correct position

The baby's body should be turned completely towards your body, well lodged in the hollow of your arms.

Am I doing it right?

If yes:

  • You'll feel no pain during the feed
  • Swallowing will be calm and regular
  • The mouth should "swallow" a large part of the areola.
A useful tip: watch his ear, it will regularly go up and down!

Breasts hurting?
