I'm due in Jan. and have been reading up on breastfeeding and attending la leche league meetings.
The other night I had a dream that I was breastfeeding my baby and it felt so right
In a couple of sentences what are some key phrases or tips to keep in mind when trying to get a good latch.
Some things that have stood out in my readings are:
Hold your baby so that her tummy and knees are against your tummy, and her head is nestled in the bend of your elbow. (For tradiitional hold)
Hold the baby close to you.
Make sure the baby opens her mouth wide and then bring her close to you so that the tip of her nose barely touches your breast.
