And this is what we call the best way to breastfeed, because we definitely wouldn’t want any mother to feel stressed over breastfeeding their babies. The most crucial aspect of nursing is the time spent with the baby, which promotes physical and emotional bonding. But in order to ensure that process, let’s discuss the best way to breastfeed. It is common that some mothers have difficulty in knowing which position is most suitable for their babies during breastfeeding. But as a reminder, it takes a lot of time and effort to know what position that your baby prefers. One of the first benefits that you can get from breastfeeding is to learn the cues that your baby is sending to you.
Moreover, knowing what kind of breastfeeding position that your baby prefers is one of the difficult parts of parenting. Because not all babies are going to be easy. With that said, I have the 2 best ways to breastfeed techniques that breastfeeding mothers should try out.
The Football Hold.
The football hold is a position where the baby would be held or tucked under your arm like how you would be holding a football or basketball. When using this technique, make sure to support the back of your baby’s head with your forearm and hold or place your baby close to your chest or nipple to allow the suckling to happen.
The Reclining Position
This is a well known position, but the part that most mothers get wrong is the part where they don’t give much support to themself. It is important to keep in mind that these layback positions can be relaxing and helpful for some mothers. However, it is also pivotal to take care of your back, by adding some more pillows to support your back bone, so that the baby can lie comfortably during breastfeeding.
