UNICEF, WHO and WABA along with the scientific community strongly recommend initiating breastfeeding within an hour of birth. Every newborn, when placed on the mother’s abdomen, soon after birth, has the ability to find its mother’s breast all on its own and to decide when to take the first breastfeed. This is called the ‘Breast Crawl’.
KellyMom is sponsored this month by pumpspotting – a breastfeeding app that connects nursing moms over milk and motherhood and helps them to find, rate and share the best places to pump and nurse. They have graciously helped pay our costs this month. Download the app to join the community and nurse, pump, nourish, connect.
