Updated: Apr 17
Breastfeeding - The Latch Matters.
Latch problems? Here are a few things to try...
Skin to skin - yes! let baby be, hand express and offer drops of milk to baby from your clean finger.
Breast crawl! Enjoy being skin to skin vs focused on latching baby
Let baby latch (self attachment) and begin breastfeeding
Repeat and practice
