Unique Illustrations designed to teach mothers how to position the breast, and baby's mouth, to enable baby to take the best possible mouthful.
This teaching aid helpts to teach mothers how important it is for baby to take a large amount of breast over the tongue and lower jaw to enable baby to comfortably and effectively remove milk from the breast.
Sit down beside a mother and use the unique illustrations to demonstrate:
-How her baby needs to take the essential mouthful of breast. By taking a large portion of breast over the bottom lip, tongue and lower jaw.
-How to position her breast and baby's mouth to deeply attach/latch baby.By keeping her nipple above baby's top lip until the baby has begun taking the breast over the tongue and lower jaw.
-How a well placed finger (cradle hold) or thumb (transition hold) can be used to:
-Tilt the nipple up above the top lip and position it opposite baby's nose Offer baby the breast below the nipple first And help guide the breast and then the nipple into baby's mouth during attachment.
-How she needs to WAIT for baby to open the mouth wide, before bringing baby swiftly and firmly onto the breast. Planting the bottom lip about 3-4cms below the nipple.
