1. Tuck the baby’s bottom up against the back of the chair or bed pillow (if baby’s feet are straight back, baby will push away and be stiff).
2. Turn the baby’s body in toward yours.
3. Lift the breast and stroke the baby’s lips until baby tips back and reaches for the nipple.
4. Hug baby close with pressure on the neck and shoulders. Draw baby in with the chin touching the breast. This allows baby’s head to tip back slightly so nose is unblocked. Mother and baby should be able to look into each other’s eyes.
