15Adorable Baby Nuzzles

This is a very important time to establish breastfeeding by making sure baby starts to eat as soon as possible after giving birth. Having a lot of skin to skin contact as well holding baby close, will help establish and cement breastfeeding. This also helps Mom continue to bond with

her baby, get to know his/her cues, and helps Mom produce more milk by having the baby nearby. The hormones that are released in this mother/child bond help in developing the mother and child relationship and what will continue to grow from it. If she has any issues breastfeeding, this is the time to get help from the nursing staff to find what position best works for her and her baby. Things will only go more smoothly if this is established early on.
