Breast Feeding Video Clips - First Latch

First Latch

How to achieve the "asymmetrical" latch. Shows some drinking by the baby (see Third Latch for more obvious drinking), some nibbling.

Breast Feeding Video Clips - Second Latch

Second Latch

Baby is mostly nibbling at the breast. Compression is being used to get the baby to drink more. Another "asymmetric" latch is shown. Note that after re-latching the baby drinks better than before, and compression is not necessary to get the baby to drink.

Breast Feeding Video Clips - Third Latch

Third Latch

Shows baby latching on with "asymmetric" latch. Then later, video shows the baby getting milk. The pause in the chin tells us when the baby is getting milk and the absence of the pause means the baby is not getting milk. The pause can be seen even on the very first day of life, though obviously not as obviously, as the more milk the baby gets, the longer the pause. The pause does not represent swallowing, but rather the baby's mouth filling up with milk.

Breast Feeding Video Clip - Poor Latch

Poor Latch / Good Latch

When the baby latches on over the nipple, he gets very little milk. When the baby latches on properly, he gets more milk. It's as simple as that. (The picture to the left is a poor latch because the lower lip is tucked in.) If your baby latches on like this, take her off, and latch her on properly.

Breast Feeding Video Clips - Poor Latch Colostrum

Poor Latch / Good Latch 2

Even in the first few days, before the milk 'comes in', a good latch is important so that the baby gets the colostrum. There is enough colostrum in the first few days, if the baby gets it. He needs a good latch in order to get it. Note that a pump does not work in the same as the baby, so that if you cannot pump colostrum easily, it doesn't mean you don't have any milk. Often it is easier to express colostrum by hand than by pump.

Breast Feeding Video Clips - Pause in chin

Pause in Chin

Shows baby drinking from the breast. Edith Kernerman is explaining the pause in the chin - which is a mouth full of milk. This clip shows an adoptive baby getting breastmilk and supplement from a lactation aid.
