#breastfeedingmamas Checklist when latching your newborn⏬


Are you COMFORTABLE

•How is your postpartum pain? Let’s get it under control BEFORE latching baby.

•It’s more than what it looks like. How does it feel when baby is suckling.

•Are your shoulders relaxed?


Are you COMMUNICATING?

•Express how you feel.

•Talk to your baby, kiss them, touch their fingers and toes, cuddle them.

•Encourage them, and encourage yourself.


Are you TRANSFERRING MILK?

•Can you see baby’s jaw moving?

•Can you hear swallows?

•Do your breasts feel “emptied” after nursing?

•Is baby content between feeds?

•Is baby growing/gaining weight?


Use the checklist for effective latching.

You got this!
