Breastfeeding Basics, Material For Prenatal & Postpartum Breastfeeding Classes

Video - "Breastfeeding: Coping With The First Week" Features Chloe Fisher helping new mothers learn how to breastfeed. From the review by the Journal of Human Lactation, 13(3), 1997.

"This video is a wonderful educational tool for anyone working with breastfeeding families. The video prepares a new mother for the first week of breastfeeding by discussing baby's first feed, how milk is obtained at the breast, how to feed in public, how to evaluate latch, what normal input and output might be in the early days (including a view of a father changing a diaper with a normal breastmilk stool) and how to know if one needs further assistance.

Several mothers discuss public nursing, including the comment that a screaming baby is much more disruptive in public than a breastfeeding baby. Milk expression, both by hand and with breast pumps, is also discussed. The mechanics of breastfeeding are clearly and thoroughly presented with latch receiving much appropriate detail. Main points about latch are repeated and presented in a checklist which would be helpful for a new mother. Slow motion photography and lovely music add to the peaceful quality... A pregnant or new mother would be encouraged to breastfeed by watching this video, and I intend to add it to my own library."
