Feeding your infant has the possibility of being the biggest challenge, yet greatest reward you go through. If you are choosing to breastfeed, initiating the feeding process as soon as the baby is born can be very helpful. The sooner you begin this relationship the sooner your body begins to produce exactly what baby needs. It may take some time for your breasts to adjust to feeding your child. It can take a few days for your milk to come in, but that doesn’t mean that vital nutrients and bonding are not transferring at this time. Every time your baby comes into contact with you, your breasts are stimulated to produce. Even when your baby cries. It is a time when language truly has an incredible powerful physical reaction in your body. Initially success with breastfeeding comes with the communication between mother and baby. The baby sends many cues for the mother to pick up on. Every response to the baby from the mother communicates that yes, your cues were sufficient and the baby and mother quickly learn how to communicate the feeding ritual that will soon become routine. All this being said, it sounds so seamless and easy. Many mothers do not experience such a seamless transition. Missed cues, delayed feedings, outside influences and factors can all hinder the initial stages of breastfeeding. But there are fabulous experts (IBCLCs) in the field to assist you every step of the way.
