The technique of compression is demonstrated, and it can be seen that the baby drinks more milk as the breast is compressed. The mother starts the compression as the baby sucks, but does not get milk. It is important to work with the baby and compress only when the baby is sucking (moving his/her mouth).
Using Compressions to
Keep Baby Awake
Young babies tend to fall asleep at the breast when the flow of milk slows. This clip shows that as the baby gets more milk, the baby opens up her eyes. The technique of compression is shown.
Shift to Assymetric Latch 1
This clip shows how, by pushing in the baby's bottom with her forearm (with help), the mother moves the baby around into a more "asymmetric" latch, gets the baby to drink more (more obvious "pauses" at the point of the chin). The mother's right hand should be palm up under the baby's face, rather than on the baby's shoulder.
Shift to Assymetric Latch 2
The mother shifts the baby around on her own, at about 30 seconds and 38 seconds into the clip, with the baby obviously starting to drink more once she is positioned more asymmetrically.
This breast feeding instructional video shows how to use a lactation aid. Note that when it is working, the baby shows he is getting more milk because the pause in the chin is more obvious. In the second attempt to use the lactation aid, though the tube seems to be well placed, it is not. The baby was not getting more milk, as there were no pauses in the chin. Fiddling with the tube gets the baby drinking again. The lactation aid does not work well if the baby is poorly latched on and/or the tube is poorly placed, but it can be made to work well with practice.

I've heard from a number of moms who said that these breast feeding instructional videos were very helpful and I wish you all the best with your new baby.
As a mom who had many breastfeeding problems with my first baby, I understand how important it is to get that latch right. These breast feeding instructional videos show you how.
I also had a baby that was born with an extreme sensitivity to the dairy that I ate. This caused him to be stuffy all the time - like he had a cold. When I realized what the problem is, I eliminated dairy from my diet and he cleared right up.
your baby is throwing up more than usual she could be reacting to something in your breastmilk. Here's more information on your breast milk and your baby's reflux.
