I recently saw a great video in my Mommy and Me class this week and I wanted to share what I learned. I call it unassisted breastfeeding b/c the baby does it all by himself. I have successfully breastfed 2 babies now and I still did not know this.
The video showed a baby that was 30 min. old and one that was an hour old. It was their first time eating. All the mother did was place the baby between their breasts on their belly and the mother kept her hands off the baby. The baby slowly inched his way over to one side and smelt its way to the breast and started suckling all on its own. It was Amazing!!
It makes me want to have another one just to see if it really works.
I share this so new moms can feel more comfortable about breastfeeding. I hope some of you out there try this and let me know how it goes.
