* You can start breast feeding within an hour or two after birth.
* Keep your baby always near or touching with u in bed day and night.
* Do not allow your newborn to be given a pacifier.
* Breastfeed on demand as soon as your baby shows hunger cues such as increased activities, smacking her lips, making suckling motions, shows the expressions of searching your breast. Feed for as long as your baby desires, until she detaches spontaneously from each breast.
* Alternate the breast you offer first at each feeding to ensure equal breast stimulation and milk removal.
* Older babies will tend to feed from both breasts at each feeding but young infants may be satisfied with one breast.
* Frequent nursing will improve your milk supply.
* Ask for different positions of breast feeding and perfect latching.
