Latching Photo

We were reading the an issue of Littlies Pregnancy Guide and they have a wonderful section on breastfeeding.

In particular, we want to give them credit for sharing some gorgeous breastfeeding photos in the magazine.  Not only are the photos great, but they are really useful too.

This photo shows breastfeeding latching, and the shot is taken just as the  nipple goes into baby’s mouth.  It shows the angle that you put your nipple into baby’s mouth.  You’ll also see how baby’s chin is right up against mums skin.  Also notice how the baby’s mouth is open really wide.


This next shot is gorgeous.  Look how content the baby is while drinking!  You can see in this photo how babies lips are parted like a K shape while lateched onto mum, and there is a complete seal around her nipple.
