I had trouble at first. Don't be afraid to press it into your chin. Also for most notes (except D natural) you can leave the Eb anchor key down.

Another thing that helped me in the beginning was purchasing these little things I think are called Bo-peps. They are small and black and just snap onto the flute body and may help keep your hands in the correct position. You just have to be careful that they don't move around and block your keys any. For me they helped at first but after a while were just a bother and I took them off.

It is a totally different position than holding a clarinet - that's for sure!
