7 Educational Videos to Guide You Through Breastfeeding

When it comes to breastfeeding newborns, it boils down to two main aspects:

  • Is it effective?
  • Is it comfortable?

 

Even when the latch and position seem perfect, if the above mentioned criteria are not met, there is a problem!

Even if your breastfeeding newborn position looks nothing like the latch and positioning that you’ve seen in books, it’s fine as long as your baby is transferring milk and gaining weight well. Also if you are not hurting while your baby feeds well, the latch and positioning are good enough.

Latching is the most important part of breastfeeding, if not done right it can be quite painful for the mommy.

 

Few signs that confirm a good latch while breastfeeding a newborn:

  • Tongue is seen when the bottom lip is pulled down
  • Ears wiggle
  • There is circular movement of the jaw rather than rapid chin movement
  • Cheeks are rounded
  • You do not hear clicking or smacking noises
  • You can hear swallowing
  • Chin is touching your breast
  • When your baby comes off the breast, the nipple is not flattened or misshaped
  • Any discomfort ends quickly after getting the baby is latched on
  • Your baby ends the feeding with signs of satiety/satisfaction. These signs include: the baby looks relaxed, “falls” off the breast, has open hands, and/or falls asleep.

The breastfeeding position in which you hold your baby is key and it becomes easier once you have a good latch.  A good position and latch can ensure a wonderful experience for both, you and your baby and can strengthen your bond with your little one.
