Most first time mothers like lowering one or both wings to nurse, and shifting the baby's bum to one side. For laid back nursing we recommend being propped up at no less than a 30 degree angle to maintain visual contact. Return baby to mid-line after nursing, and position baby so nose and mouth are not pressed against your chest. Skin-to-skin is great for NICU babies.
Let your NICU team know that you'd like to hold your baby skin-to-skin as soon as it is safe.
