I usually pump and feed, but in the few weeks my daughter has needed more and more milk so I have have been trying to physically breast feed to help build my supply up and to cut down on all that pumping...it's time consuming.
My problem is this. My boobs are huge and I have a hard time positioning due to this. I have looked at all the holds...the closest I come to using is the football hold one. I basically cannot use the arm on the side I'm feeding with to hold the baby because there just isn't enough room. I usually use a pillow on my lap, lay her flat across me and then support her with the opposite arm. This is fine and comfortable for us at home, but I can't always carry around a pillow KWIM?
If you've got big'nes, what do you do? Have you found a good position?
