(Okay, I started this post weeks ago, spaced out, got distracted, forgot, and spaced out again. Then I got a reply to an old post and wondered where it came from , So I stalked them (ok I checked my traffic source and saw a whole 14 people saw my blog!! instead of my usual 0) and remembered my belly was published the other day !! So if you want to see my belly or some very funny posts follow this link!!! )
Vary nursing positions. Some babies will refuse to nurse in one position but take the breast in another.
Nurse when in motion. Some babies are more likely to nurse when rocking or walking rather than sitting or standing still.
Nurse in an environment that is free from distractions. Some babies, especially babies older than three months or so, may be easily distracted. Turn off the radio and television, and try nursing in a quiet, darkened room.
Give the baby extra attention and skin-to-skin contact. Focused attention and extra touching are comforting to both mother and baby. When offering the breast, whenever possible undress to the waist and clothe the baby in just a diaper. Use a shawl or blanket around both of you if the room is chilly.
