First, start with good positioning
for both mother and baby (tummy to tummy; mother sitting
straight up with pillow under her arm for support)
Next, support breast with C-hold, keeping
fingers away from areola.
Tickle baby's upper lip across nipple,
and quickly move baby back a little (so baby can't jump
onto nipple). Repeat this until baby opens very wide,
like a yawn.
As soon as baby opens wide, quickly
pull baby onto breast (aiming nipple at baby's nose, not
mouth), so that the chin touches first.
Pull baby in close, so, that the baby's
nose is also touching, and maintain support of the breast.
Check upper and lower lips (should
both be flanged outward, not tucked in), and pull lips
out if needed (if the bottom lip is curled in, give the
chin a firm tug downward to get it out).
