when my dd#2 was born i figured i was an old pro at bf'ing, having nursed dd#1 for 11 months and ds over 2 years. i remember sitting in the bed the next morning barely 12hrs after she was born, nursing her. i had had her to the breast so many times at that point that i lost count. all the nurses couldn't get over that i had her to the breast within the 1st half hr of her being born, and her taking to it with no prob. (hello, is that not what is recommended?) one nurse comes in and looks at the chart that i was suppose to fill out with how many feeds/poops/pees. she watched me nurse, remarked that dd has a good latch, then tells me 'its not the way we do it anymore,' referring to the position. of course i was tired, and in a lot of pain, as my pelvis had separated during the pregnancy, so i was thinking, OH MY GOD!! i'm not doing it right! then she proceeds to tell me i need to hold my breast with my hand, which meant the hand with the iv inserted at the side of my wrist was bent at a really odd angle and was hurting like crazy. she acknowledged that it was hurting my hand, and tells me i can do it that way next time!!! at that moment i realized that this was stupid to say the least!! there is not one right way to bf!!! who cares what position you use as long as mom and baby are comfy, and the latch is good. i felt like telling her off, but let it go at nursing how i felt like!
