Kids have strokes too!
For those of you who were successful w/ football hold, I'm still not getting how you were able to see the nipple and the baby's mouth to get a latch? When DS was in football hold, all I could see was the top of my breast-- when my bra is off I can't see my nipples if I look down while sitting up, and of course his head was completely 100% covered by my breast, so I couldn't see his face or my nipple at all unless I twisted my neck around. And then once he was latched, I couldn't tell if he had breathing room at his nose because I again couldn't see his face unless I twisted my neck around. Did you all use mirrors, or did you somehow do it by feel?
I see the PP is talking about holding the breast in a "sandwich"-- so you're saying that when you did that (which I always did, too) it actually made your breast small enough that the baby's head was visible? Even a newborn?
