Well...I've been BF for 2 months now! (Baby is 3 months old...but he was in the NICU for the first 25 days.)
I am starting to take him out more and I've even done it in public. We are going to Florida next week, and I want to feed him on the plane and in the airport. My problem is that I REALLY feel like I NEED my boppy pillow. I don't want to bring the boppy on the plane because I am also going to have my toddler with me and I am coming home alone with both of them. I need to be carrying as little as possible.
I have been trying to practice the cradle hold without proping him up on pillows...and without sitting with my legs crossed (which I love). I just can't seem to get the hang of it. Is it because I am bigger on top? Maybe it won't ever work for us? Or just it just take practice? Maybe I should just drag the boppy with me. I will have them both in the stroller through the airport...and it has a huge basket on the bottom. I will be putting the baby in a Mai Tai when I board so I can have my hands free to help my toddler and carry whatever I need. I guess I could carry the boppy along with my diaper bag. I just wish I could get the hang of it!!! Any help or advice would be GREAT! Sorry this is soo long!
