So after nursing as many kids as I have my boobs are not quite as perky as they used to be. I found I needed to support my breast when feeding Killian, but that gets tiring after a few minutes and makes multitasking difficult, since one had is holding up the boob. Last night I grab a cloth diaper and folded it and put it under my bewb. Woot! It worked. As does a rolled up wash cloth (for those that don't have diapers- although lots of people do to use as burp cloths).

This makes for a more comfortable latch. It is wonderful

You have no clue how excited I am to try this at our next nursing! I found all day today in order to not feel like he was ripping my nipple off that I had to hold my boob up.

Great idea, Meg! I haven't started nursing yet, but I know I have had that problem in the past.

THANK YOU!!! As a big busted woman, even though this is my first baby, I've found that I too need to hold my boob up so it doesn't feel like Aidens sucking my nipple off, LOL. Can't wait to try this!
