 Two Basic Rules for Breastfeeding:

1) The Mother’s job is to POSITION the breast and baby.
Baby’s nose lined up with Mother’s nipple.

2) The Baby’s job is to LATCH-ON
(and not hurt the Mother!)

Basic Rules for Learning Latch:

1) The Mother is so comfortable that she could go to sleep.
2) The Baby gets milk.

    • Thank you Rubye. I find that healthcare professionals can overteach and over supervise, making the beginning more difficult. What do you think?
