Breastfeeding problems: nursing isn’t one size fits all
The content for this blog was provided by Infantino in accordance with Bundoo’s Editorial Policy.
Moms don’t come in one size, shape, or style — and neither do their babies! So it shouldn’t be a surprise that there is no one-size-fits-all way to do breastfeeding.
A good latch starts by lifting baby to breast, and there are lots of different ways to do it. The infographic below highlights different nursing positions and their benefits.
In all of these positions, the first step is lifting your little one to nipple height. Leaning down to baby, instead of lifting baby up, can cause strain on your back, neck, and shoulders.
You and baby are a team, learning a new skill together. Experiment with different positions, and find what feels most natural and supportive to you!
We Elevate Where Other Nursing Pillows Fall Flat™
A good latch starts by bringing baby up to breast. Lifting baby with a single-height pillow is limiting and can put moms in very uncomfortable positions. The Elevate Adjustable Nursing pillow has layers that lift and support baby with three height levels and opens up more nursing-hold options. Available at Amazon.com, Walmart and Infantino.com
Infantino, thank you for including the reasons breastfeeding is great for a mom’s health regarding the prevention of breast and ovarian cancer! This is a fact that is so rarely pointed out, and it is so important!
