    I used the football hold, just like you're describing, for the first 4 months. After that, DD seemed to kick off the back of the couch or chair and would take my nipple with her.

    We transitioned to the cradle hold and have used it ever since.

    We used a Boppy. And if I didn't have that, I would use a pillow to help prop baby up to breast level.
