22Holding Off On Starting
We are going to start right at the very beginning of a mom’s breastfeeding journey and it begins almost the moment a woman gives birth. Giving birth to a baby can be overwhelming (to say the least) and a new mom can get wrapped up in the sight and smell
of her new baby. It is OK to soak in all the love and cuddles, but if mom is planning on breastfeeding, she doesn’t have time to wait.
Lactation consultants (or LC’s as I will be referring to them throughout this article) suggest that mom should not wait long before trying to nurse her little one. An early start is key when it comes to establishing a great relationship from the start.
