This is a great position for moms who have had a C-section or who have larger breasts.
Like a football, hold the baby tucked under your arm, so that he or she is wrapped around the same side of your body as the breast in use. The baby’s head should be positioned in front of your chosen breast with that hand cradling his or her neck in position (again, don’t cup the head and forcibly push baby onto the breast). Your hand opposite from the breast in use can be used to offer the breast, and if needed, can elevate the breast during the feed.
