Hello! I went from never having held a baby until my boy was born Thursday to trying to juggle him and find a good position to bf ...having a bit of trouble.
I'm looking for some tips or anything that will make my life easier breastfeeding him. He's doing a pretty good job so far, its mostly my issues.
I have DDs which is awkward enough, but they are so floppy, its hard for me to position them and the baby just right. They are damned near impossible to wrangle with both hands and help, but I'm going to need to figure out how to do it all on my own asap. So what do you ladies suggest? I haven't been able to get a nursing bra yet, so I've been getting by with sports bras so far. I've been told the 'football hold' is best for larger breasts, but I'm still struggling with getting comfortable. He does really well finding the nipple by himself in the side-lying position, but that's not always going to be an option obviously!
Anyway, sorry for the ramble, I'm still a bit out of it. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
