Breast milk is the first and the best gift you give your baby. Proper latching - the act of your baby suckling the nipple and areola for feeding – is very important. Improper latching prevents your baby from nursing and makes your nipples hurt and cracked.

Instructions

1.    Take off and change your baby’s diaper. She must be fully awake and comfortable before nursing.

2.    Hold her head by one hand and your breast by the other. Flatten the areola area by squeezing your breast to fit in her mouth. Stroke her cheeks gently by your thumb to make her mouth open.

3.    Put your breast quickly to her mouth. Make sure her lips are flared out (like a fish) and encompassing your nipple and areola. Check if your baby’s nose and chin are touching your breast, which helps you be sure your proper breast area is in her mouth.

4.    Be sure she is nursing, not just nuzzling by hearing unless there was a clicking noise from her mouth. Take her out and do it again until she is really nursing.

Tips and warnings

·         Your baby should have almost the areola area in her mouth. It helps compress your milk sinuses and cause the milk to release and flow correctly to your nipple.

·         A correct latch-on is like a strong pull but a pinch. A biting sensation is the sign of a poor latch-on.
