  • Breastfeeding Hand ExpressionHand Expression
    The Baby-Friendly Initiative recommends that all mothers are taught how to hand express. It’s a valuable skill to learn. Expressing breastmilk by hand in the early hours and days will help you establish and build your milk supply.

  • Breastfeeding motherThe First Hours
    Humans are part of the natural world of mammals and because of this fact all healthy human babies are born with instincts that help them to obtain food from their mothers at a very early age.
  • Breastfeeding motherSkin-to-skin
    Spending the first few minutes after birth with your baby skin to skin creates the perfect environment to succeed with breastfeeding.
  • Mother breastfeedingThe Latch
    The latch is basically defined as how the baby actually attaches on to your breast or comes on to your breast. Make sure that you’ve got a good latch because it will affect how much milk the baby will remove as well as how much milk your body makes.
  • Breastfeeding motherPositions
    A good position and latch helps your baby get enough milk to satisfy your baby’s hunger and ensures your breasts are stimulated to produce enough milk. When you’re positioning your baby at the breast, it’s important for you to choose a position that is comfortable for you and your baby.

Thank you to Peel Region Public Health for allowing us to display their Breastfeeding Instructional Videos on our website. The videos provide helpful and evidence-based information. They cover topics such as latching and positioning, skin-to-skin and milk supply.
