Simple truths

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) also reccommends the “the mother and baby be left skin-to-skin, undisturbed, until the first feeding is accomplished” ┬áThe weighing, eye drops, vitamin K shot and bath can all wait. (AAP Policy, “Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk”)

The AAP also recommends that mother’s milk is especially important for premature and sick infants. You can be proud that your mother’s milk is still the best nutrition, and sometimes the best medicine, for your infant. No matter the concerns, support and help with breastfeeding is what every family deserves.
