Mor sitter godt, eventuelt med en pute i fanget. Barnets hode hviler midt på mors underarm. Barnet skal ligge godt over på siden, med sin mage mot mors mage.
Brystknoppen skal være i høyde med barnets nese.
Når barnet gaper skikkelig, drar mor barnet mot seg. Når barnet har fått et bra tak på brystet kan mor regulere barnets stilling ved å dra barnets underkropp enda nærmere seg. Da får barnet nesen fri og haken godt inn i brystet.
Mom has to sit relaxed, in an upright position. Optionally, she can have a pillow in her lap. The baby’s head is rested on her forearm. Baby should lie on his side, facing towards mom’s body.
The nipple should point towards the baby’s nose.
As soon as the baby starts rooting, and opens his mouth wide, mom drags his body towards herself. As soon as the baby has a good latch, mom can adjust the baby’s position by dragging his lower body even closer to her. Then the baby will have his nose free of the breast and the chin even closer to mom’s breast.
