Breastfeeding- The Latch Matters

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

  • Feel like you need to do more? Deep latch technique video
