Using Your Pollywog Nursing Positioner

1    Get in a comfortable, upright position with good back support, such as a Pollywog brand nursing lumbar support.

2    Place Pollywog and baby as close to your body as possible.

3    Adjust Pollywog and/or baby by sliding baby up or down on Pollywog, or by sliding Pollywog across your lap until baby's mouth is positioned slightly under your breast.

4    Always bring baby and Pollywog to your breast, never your breast to baby and Pollywog. Support your breast when bringing baby up to it.

5    When using the football hold, it may be necessary to increase Pollywog's height by placing one corner of Pollywog on your leg. A rolled up cloth next to your newborn's bottom should help prevent sliding.

6    You can easily elevate Pollywog to 30+ degrees to improve digestion by sliding Pollywog across your lap until the tail rests between your knees.

7    Always keep one hand behind baby to prevent rolling.

8    If you experience sore nipples that do not appear to be improving daily, please consult a lactation consultant. Breastfeeding should never hurt, even in the beginning.
