This position is also called the underarm hold or clutch hold. It is a common position used for newborns and is usually used only until a baby is latching on well. For this position, baby is supported by a pillow and tucked in on the same side that you are nursing on. With the baby facing you, place their body under your arm and cradle their head with your hand. Baby should be at breast/chest height.
Use your free hand to support your breast.
