    Breastfeeding advice wanted

    I'm A C 5-6 quad and had my baby two weeks ago at 30 weeks gestation. He's still in the NICU but my question is what have you other quad moms used to prop your baby to your breast for nursing? I'm typically in my power chair and the thought of losing my hold on such a fragile, pink wiggly really scares me.

    Also, do any of you do "manual" expression after you pump? I've got the expressing part down but have trouble getting the milk into a bottle. Anyone have any tips or tricks?

    Several women I know have used this breast feeding pillow:
