Hello...I was just wondering what positions and techniques you've all used for your older babies. Mine is 8 months but over 20 pounds...she's always been a little acrobat, playing with her feet, twisting, etc, when she nurses. Since we came home from the hospital I've almost always nursed her on a pillow on my lap because if I just try to cradle hold her she ends up making it uncomfortable for both of us with her moving. With the pillow I can sort of let her get comfy without breaking my back. But she's getting too big for her pillow...now her legs dangle off...plus it's kind of weird bringing a silly bed pillow with us to go out everywhere. She doesn't take a bottle so pumping for outings isn't an option. She will nurse laying down but who has a bed for nursing when they're at a mall or restaurant! Just wondering how others have managed to comfortably nursed, especially outside of home, with bigger, bouncing babies. I'm planning on nursing till at least 18 months, so we'll have to get creative!
