I am very vocal about my breastfeeding journey. It wasn’t until our fourth son that I learned about the beauty of breastfeeding.
From the moment I gave birth to him, my OB Gynecologist and Midwife readily helped my son crawl towards my breasts. I later discovered it is called breast crawl. The newborn uses his instinct and reflexes to find his mom’s nipples. A few seconds after, he began to latch and nurse. Such a breakthrough solution to early breastfeeding problem.
I am just happy that the hospitals today encourage breastfeeding. Very unlike ten years ago when no health workers were even available to teach about colostrum, breast pumps, and even breastfeeding. Or so in my case.
