pouch_positions_f7Nursing can be done in two positions: the cradle nurse for young babies and the hip nurse for toddlers and babies with head control.

For cradle nursing, place you baby in the pouch in the cradle position . Pull the inside fabric down to expose your breast and help the baby to attach. Small babies will need to be supported by your arm until the can reach the breast on their own. Pull the front fabric up to cover your baby and yourself.

For hip nursing place you baby in the tummy to tummy position or the hip position for larger infants. Lift your breast and guide your baby’s head down. Babies find it quite comfortable to bend forward into the pouch to nurse. Stretch the front fabric across  our baby for privacy.
