Start breastfeeding well

Skin to skin at birth

Skin-to-skin stabilizes the baby’s temperature, heart rate and provides access to the breast to facilitate breastfeeding. Skin-to-skin babies cry less. Place your baby skin to skin from birth for the first 1-2 hours.

During the first days hold baby skin to skin often and for a long time. Savor these moments!

A small amount of milk is enough

Your first milk, called colostrum, is more than enough for the baby. His stomach is not ready for a lot of milk yet. This precious colostrum stimulates the intestines, prepares is digestive system and provides it with a good dose of antibodies.

Frequent feedings

Stimulating the breast well the first few days is key to ensuring adequate production thereafter. Offer the breast as soon as possible after birth and then whenever it shows signs of alertness.

Avoid pacifiers and bottles.

Ask for breastfeeding assistance.

Effective breastfeeding is not painful. If you have pain, contact your godmother or a breastfeeding professional who can work with you to find out the possible causes of your pain. Don’t wait !

NatureBond

Mothers with a breastfeeding coach can get a NatureBond™ for only $10 (regular price $22.99 when purchased on the NatureBond™ website)

To get a NatureBond™, the mother must order it here and provide proof of purchase to a Nourri-Source Laurentides breastfeeding coach at the drop-in breastfeeding centre in her zone (add a link to the drop-in centre schedule).

The NatureBond™ suction pump allows the milk from one breast to be easily collected at the same time as the baby is feeding at the other one.

While this suction pump does not empty the breast completely, it will easily help to relieve your breasts.

Made from silicone-free food-grade BPA, the NatureBond™ carries no risks for you or your baby.
