    Default Breastfeeding with bub is in Correctio brace for DDH

    Anyone got any suggestions for BFing positions while bub is in correctio? I'm struggling to get her comfortable & she's coming off screaming, I'm so worried she's not getting enough & my supply will go backwards... We worked so hard to get to this point. Ive tried to straddling her over my knee facing me, and lying down with a pillow behind her... Not sure what else to try, she's 4.5 months so too big for football hold.

    My baby was in a Von Rosen brace and I just fed her as normal, granted she was angle up rather than curved up in a cuddle.
    You can still use football hold, but uou may need to have Bub on a pillow while you are sitting down.

    I agree, I breastfed my first football hold until she was 9 months old, she just had to lie on a pillow. Good luck.

    I breastfed my dd who was in a Dennis Brown brace from one week until 5 months. I got a big boomerang pillow and it was great. I used the football hold when she was little then mastered the cradle hold with one of her legs in the air!
    Good luck!
