What’s a good way to start breastfeeding?
Biological Nurturing is a good way to get breastfeeding started, and can be done whether your baby is asleep or awake.
- First, lean back in a way that feels comfortable, then you place your baby on top of you.
- You can lay your baby at any angle against you – baby’s legs and feet will touch and push against your stomach or legs to help get into a good position.
You can start this as soon as you want – many mothers do it straight from birth. In the beginning, it’s all about getting baby to use the reflexes and instincts they’re born with.
