In the cross-cradle hold, your baby's abdomen lies against yours. One hand is low on the baby's
head to give control as you bring your baby to the breast to latch. The other
hand (on the same side as the breast being used) supports the breast and
narrows it to help the baby form a good, deep latch onto the areola.
