Allows you to lie down while breastfeeding.
  • Lying comfortably on your side, place a supportive pillow firmly behind your back.
  • Position another pillow between your legs, with your flexed upper knee resting on the pillow.
  • Place the baby next to you, tummy-to-tummy so that his or her mouth is level with your nipple.
  • Support your breast with the opposite hand to assist with latch-on.
  • Stroke your baby’s lower lip with your nipple.
  • When he/she opens wide like a yawn, bring the baby quickly to your breast.
