THE FIRST CONTACT AND FEED: Start breastfeeding as soon as the baby shows readiness to suckle.

It has been proved that the earlier a baby is breastfed, the easier it for the mother and the baby to establish regular breastfeeding. This also ensures that breastfeeding will continue for a sufficiently long period of time. PRELACTEAL...
