It IS important to think a few steps ahead though. Having your drink,
telephone and remote nearby is very important. I can't tell you how
many times the phone rang and I couldn't get to it b/c I left it in
the other room!


It took me awhile but I also learned that it is better to just let the baby
cry a minute (or I learned to carry the baby) and go pee before you sit down
to nurse. I could never hold it long enough to get through the whole
nursing session so I'd just have to disrupt the baby to get up and go
anyway. When I didn't go first and interrupted the baby I often lost the
'baby goes to sleep after nursing' bonus!

I'd add to that make sure your water glass is full and have a snack handy in
case you get hungry while the little one is asleep on you. I don't know how
many times I sat there with an empty glass and a hungry stomach. I used to
say I was stranded on my island.

I'm having difficulty with this one. I'm about a 40 E (before my
milk came in). How can I do this?


Just practicing? You might find it easier to prop her toward you with
a little pillow. There was no way I could do it in the beginning. It
took some practice then I did it all the time.


Also, if you have a good LC at your hospital, ask her to show you how to
nurse lying down. This was one of the best things I learned during my
hospital stay. And in addition to that, you still need to practice. I'd
suggest doing a lot of little naptime practices--you're likely to be less
tired and more patient. Fiddle around with positioning, and you'll find
what works best for both of you. I haven't found being large-breasted to be
a detriment to nursing lying down. On the contrary, I can feed from both
without rotating the baby to my other side.

If you can figure out nursing lying down (it's not too hard, but I think
it depends on how large your breasts are), that is great for the middle
of the night nursings.

Good luck!!

YMMV, but I'm a 42F and my little man couldn't nurse lying down until about
week 10 or so. He needed enough head control to pull his head (face) back
when he was about to be smothered by the big bazooms.

The way Monika did it was to lie on her side facing the baby and
have the baby lie on her/his side nursing off of the bottom breast.
It was forever before either could nurse off the top breast.

You have to use the "taco hold" on the breast to get the baby
latched on, also.

Try it!

And escuse me, but hospitals, expecially in the south, are often
