Our Favorite Nursing Positions (Newborn Edition)


At one month, she doesn’t have a preferred breast, but she does have her favorite nursing positions.

and they are...

Cradle

While sitting or walking, this is the most comfortable position for the both of us.

Side-Lying

This is usually how I feed her when I am sleeping or I am putting her to sleep.

Dangle Feeding

I have dangle fed to calm her in the car seat.

But I most often do this in bed. After I’ve fed from one breast, and do not want to switch laying on the other side.

Back-Lying

She often goes to sleep in this position.

I can also lay in between our 4 and 7 year old in this position without having my back to anyone.

Thigh Prop

This position is perfect for when I’m eating and need to be hands-free.

In the end, she loves when our bellies kiss in whichever position we choose.

Which breastfeeding positions are most comfortable for you and your little one?

Until next time.

Love thyself,
