Hi. I am Mars Lord a duly UK recognized Doula. I support women through pregnancy and child birth and post birth.

I am here today to talk about pregnancy birth and infant feeding. Breast feeding is simpler than you think. The most important things with breast feeding are:
Start early, think frequently and keep a look at the latch at the way that baby is attached.
So, you have given birth to your beautiful baby get that baby on to your skin. Let the baby calm next to your heart beat that the baby breathes you in and you breathe the baby in. Some babies, if you let them would do what's known as the breast comb they might bob, slide or leap down to the breast your areola will darken.
Babies cant's see very far the areola also emits a fine smell. Babies if they are allowed to what's called the breast cord, some move bob; some move slide and some will do an Olympics leap down to the nipple. Now, the way a baby feeds looks wrong all of our images we see babies at high but the baby will come from below to the breast and what you need first is for the baby's chin to press into the under side of the breast then the baby's bottom lip will flay and the mouth should open wide this allows the nipple to go in and up to back of the roof of the mouth the baby will then close it's mouth on your breast, you will see more areola the darken part of the nipple at the top the new will at the bottom.
If that chin and that bottom lip are in well then the baby should get good vacuum for good suckling. If it feels wrong it might be a very simple positioning adjustment. So, maybe turn the baby in a little more, hold the baby a little closer if it feels wrong it is wrong your baby needs to be tummy to mummy an old phrase but a good phrase because it is exactly as it says it is, your baby's tummy is towards you this means you can feed your baby in any position€”horizontally, vertically, diagonally even up side down possibly not for first time.
So, the baby is tummy to mummy€, make sure the baby is in a straight line when you take a drink you tilt your neck and you shading so that you can swallow the baby needs to be able to tilt it's head back, don't hold your baby's head imagine someone holding a pillow against your face your natural instincts is to pull back so that you don't suffocate, so allow the baby to tilt it's head, keep the baby tummy to mummy with a straight line where your baby on your skin allow the baby to stay there. Breast feeding doesn't come in scheduled births at the beginning your baby may feed just a few times in the first 24 hours and that may well increase so that your baby is feeding every two hours the trick is to ensure that your baby feeds long and feeds deep the best online resource is for breast feeding at www.kellymom.
com and also Google doctor D.R Jack Newman where you can see breast feeding videos. But really what you need is your baby on your skin if the baby starts to suckle from the beginning it stimulates the milk supply so feed your baby regularly, feed your baby until your baby is ready to come off and the good sign that your baby is feeding well nappies lots of pour and lots of urine.
When in doubt Google and find you're closest internationally board certified lactation consultant. IBCLC they are the cream of cream when it comes to understanding and helping the breast feeding problems and that is how you breast feed.
