BREASTFEEDING . . .
Did you know:
For your baby to breastfeed well, you need to have a proper latch. Turn the baby towards your breast so they are tummy to tummy. Hold baby close with their mouth in front of your nipple. Lightly touch baby's lip with your nipple. When baby opens mouth wide pull onto breast. It should not hurt.!
And remember. . .
Breastmilk is FREE!
