  3. This is such great information for new moms to know. I’m glad to see it’s getting out there on all types of different blogs. I did a piece about self-attachment too called Self-Attachment: Smart Babies Want to Breastfeed. http://www.breastfeedingmomsunite.com/2009/03/self-attachment-smart-babies-want-to-breastfeed/ What a wonderous thing nature is!

  5. Thank you for sharing that beautiful video! We had problems breastfeeding after a difficult birth and time in the NICU, but a wise lactation consultant recommended skin to skin time, without me trying to do anything, and letting him feel comfortable at the breast. But I wish I had actually seen a video of this, because I think it would have helped!

  7. Dr. Smilie’s work saved my breastfeeding relationship! I would have just gone to pumping had I not really stopped to listen to her at a Lamaze Conference. Wow. It was a life altering talk for me.

  9. That’s an amazing video. It drives me a little crazy that she made the baby wait so long when it’s obvious what the baby wants… but hey, I waited longer than that bc I had to be stitched up- which, come to think of it, might be why the idea of that baby having to wait bugs me- because I wished I could have fed mine a few minutes earlier, rather than everyone else getting to hold him while my epidural wore off and I got situated to be able to sit up. I mean, I could kiss him and touch him, but not take him in my arms yet. Next time, next time!

  10. “I needed to know that I could trust him to work with me.”

    Yes, this is so true. I was working so hard to get my son to latch but when I lied down next to him and let him do his thing, he nursed better and rolled over and dozed off to sleep.

  16. Thank you for these videos and resources. This was a beautiful post!

  17. People make breastfeeding to be a “procedure”, but it is instinctive. I had no idea. In Wisconsin that baby would have been cold :(
