Breastfeeding can be difficult for your back if you don’t hold your baby or body correctly. Always bring the baby to you — don’t lean forward and bring your BREAST to the baby! Bring BABY to breast. Baby should have a wide-open mouth, not a narrow gape. Wait for the “gape” and then bring baby in on to the breast, latching deeply and keeping your fingers away — if you see a space between your baby’s nose and your breast, baby isn’t on deep enough. Don’t worry — they can breathe! Favorite positions for comfort are side-lying (although I don’t recommend use of a pillow under the baby) and laid back position. Other suggestions can be found here.
