My heart swells. My ovaries are bursting.
This is my baby at 12 hours old? I am showcasing this video, (bad quality and all) to show that babies are smart. He knows that he is hungry and wants to latch onto something. He doesn't know that my nose isn't a nipple, but that's ok. He has the instinct and that is the most important.
Mamas, hold in there. The first few breastfeeding weeks can be tough. If you are having difficulty seek out help. Call me, or a postpartum doula. Talk to a nurse. Call Tele-Health Ontario (or Info-Santé in Quebec). See a lactation consultant. Contact your local La Leche League Leader. Talk to your mom, sister, or friend. Talk to your baby.
