Highlight the Essential Elements of Good Positioning
Baby's whole body turned towards mothers body
Baby's body centrally straight from head to toe.
Mother and baby virtually "skin to skin" NO GAPS
Baby's body wrapped around mother's body.
Baby's arms hugging the base of the mother's breast (If babies can get their hands in-between their mouth and the breast it is a sure sign that mother is not holding baby close enough.)
Baby held with firm support behind the shoulders to:
Push the chin and chest forward against mothers body and breast; no gaps.
Provide the essential shoulder girdle stability required for the infant to execute controlled and effective reflex behaviours for attachment and the suck-swallow-breathe cycle.
Allow baby to lift the chin and mouth forward to reach the breast and nipple, which automatically tilts the head back.
Baby's chin and mouth deep into the breast with the nose clear of the breast
With baby held in this way, a mother will be sitting normally, with her arms in a relaxed natural position.
