How to Use a Breastfeeding Pillow

Congratulations!  You're home with your beautiful new baby and now you're trying to figure out how in the world to use your new breastfeeding pillow. 

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Get comfortable- Remember the 3 Bs we discussed in YourBest Childbirth Education?  That first B is adjust your body.  If you are comfortable before beginning, it will makes things that much easier.
  2. Position the Pillow- Nice and high, even with your breasts. We love pillows with a strap as they really help you keep baby in a good position for breastfeeding.
  3. Pillows and more pillows- grab a couch cushion or two and position them under the breastfeeding pillow as needed to keep baby nice and high.
