You can breastfeed your baby in many different positions. You will probably begin by trying the common holds that you have seen or read about. Then, after you become more confident, you will find the positions that are the most comfortable and work the best for you and your baby.

Some breastfeeding positions you can try include:

The Laid-Back Nursing Position
The Cradle Hold
The Cross-Cradle Hold
The Football Hold
The Side-Lying Position
It's also a good idea to alternate positions. Using different holds will allow the baby to more effectively drain the different areas of your breasts. This will help prevent plugged ducts and some of the other common problems of breastfeeding.
