How to Breastfeed: A Step-by-Step Guide - Breastfeeding Positions
Any good lactation consultant will tell you: Latching is everything. Here's how to do it:
Position the baby on her side so she is directly facing you, with her belly touching yours. Next, prop up the baby with a pillow, if necessary, and hold her up to your breast; don't lean over toward her.
Place your thumb and fingers around your areola (see step a).
Tilt your baby's head back slightly and tickle her lips with your nipple until she opens her mouth wide (see step b).
Help her "scoop" the breast into her mouth by placing her lower jaw on first, well below the nipple (see step c).
Tilt her head forward, placing her upper jaw deeply on the breast. Make sure she takes the entire nipple and at least 1 1/2 inches of the areola in her mouth (see step d).
Position your baby on your forearm, her head in the crook of your arm. Support her bottom with your other hand. Pull her in close to you, belly to belly, with her ear, shoulder and hip in a straight line.
While useful for all women, this position is particularly helpful for mothers who have had a Cesarean section. Place your baby on a pillow, tucked close to your side.
Rest your arm on the pillow to bring your baby's mouth up to your breast; support her head with your hand.
This position is also helpful if you had a C-section or want to rest while nursing your baby. Lie on the side you will be breastfeeding on. Place your head on a pillow and draw your baby in close to you, using your arm to support her bottom. Use your other hand to bring your breast up to baby's mouth.

One of her favorite shots was from her first stop, in Yerington, Nevada. It was raining and the wind was blowing tents away at our campsite. It was looking a bit grim for shooting conditions, but my assistant and I decided not to let it stop us, she said. The moment we pulled up to the theater the rain stopped and gave way to a gorgeous pink sky and a rainbow ... At that moment, I pushed aside all of my fears about this massive undertaking of a project I had gotten myself into and knew I was on the right track
