Babies can sense any anxiety and this anxiety may transfers onto them, thus causing your new baby to struggle too. Before the actual birth, it is important to take time to read or watch videos that will help give you an idea of all the alternatives that can be used in the breastfeeding techniques.

Cushions and soft pillows can be helpful in creating the comfort needed for your body if the nursing position your baby chooses turns out to be uncomfortable for you.
You may need to change these positions to better accommodate both of you. Some of the more common positions would include the cradle, the football and the side lying positions, which can be comfortable alternative to the original chest-to chest one.
