How do I
position my baby at the breast?
Breastfeeding is natural; nature’s most perfect system
is specifically designed to enable each mother to nourish
and nurture her baby. Breastfeeding is also a learned
activity. Mothers need information, encouragement and
sometimes help to learn how to breastfeed. Learning how to
properly position and latch the baby onto the breast will
endure a good start to a healthy relationship. It will also
help prevent the discomfort of sore nipples and assure that
the baby will stimulate the breast correctly to receive and
maintain an adequate supply of milk.
