Baby Led Breastfeeding

February 27th, 2008 by Diane Sam

Could it really be this easy???

I found some fascinating videos about baby led breastfeeding, also called self attachment. When I had my two babies, I was told that the mom sort of had to guide or coax the baby to attach to the nipple, since we didn't have the 'crawl' instinct other mammals have .. .but now I think differently thanks to these videos!

Check out MoBoleez retailer and Breastfeeding Consultant Eva Bild from "the Mothering Touch", as she talks about her experiences teaching "baby led breastfeeding":

Also, check out this fascinating look at a baby actually crawling up and latching on to mommy:

If you're interested in learning more, I found an educational video about it:

This is a whole different way of looking at getting the baby started breastfeeding.. what do you think mommies?
