Breastfeeding your baby is the most natural approach to ensure he gets the best start
in life. It helps the two of you form a unique relationship and provides your baby with all
the nutrients and health benefits he will need in the first six months of life and beyond.
It is quite common for you to feel anxious about breastfeeding as many women have
never seen a baby breastfeed before. You may have heard stories about women who had
a difficult time breastfeeding or who were unable to breastfeed successfully.
When it is going well breastfeeding is a comfortable and rewarding experience and almost
all women are able to produce all the breastmilk their baby needs.
Breastfeeding is more likely to be successful if the baby is correctly attached to the
breast and allowed to feed whenever he wants to and for as long as he wants to.
In this film we hope to make you feel more confident about breastfeeding your baby by
explaining how to get off to a good start.
