The foot­ball hold:


In this po­si­tion, the mother sits with her back straight. A nurs­ing pil­low may be help­ful dur­ing the early days to pro­vide sup­port to the baby and the mother’s arms. Place the pil­low be­hind the mother’s back on the bed. Now, cra­dle your baby’s head in your palm with his ab­domen against yours, keep­ing him in line with the rest of his body En­sure you sup­port his head, neck and shoul­ders in the cup of your palm and tuck his lower body into the curve of your waist. Now, sup­port your breast with a C hold with your outer free hand while sup­port­ing your baby’s head un­der the crook of your free arm.
