You can breastfeed your baby in any position that you and your baby find comfortable.
In the early days, many mothers enjoy adopting a ‘laid back’ breastfeeding position, sometimes called “Biological Nurturing”, meaning that every part of the mothers body is supported, in a semi-reclined position, as she breastfeeds.
This position means that the mother can rest and relax as she feeds, making breastfeeding more enjoyable.
Laid back breastfeeding enables a baby’s instinctive feeding reflexes and is often more comfortable for them, especially if a mother has had a long or instrumental labour.
