36 tips for breastfeeding success

Some of my favorite tips from the article:

This Side Up The side-lying option is good for those middle-of-the-night feedings. Lie on your side with your head on a pillow. Nestle your baby close to you, with her head in the crook of your arm, her mouth level with your nipple, and her tummy against yours.

My favorite position, by far!

Let someone else offer the first bottle. A breastfed baby knows mom has the "real stuff."

Without a doubt. If you had the choice between a nice warm breast fountain or a cold piece of plastic, which would you choose?

Use your baby's sense of smell. Have the person who is bottle-feeding wrap the bottle in your nightgown or nursing bra. That person should avoid wearing perfume or other strong scents.

Hopefully the baby can't tell it's the wolf in Grandma's clothing!
