i read that the most important part and link between a child and mother (and of course father) is mother's breast feeding and that is why most of the religions I understand have emphasised mothers breast feeding rather than formula milk. Some decades there had been a mis conception that mothers breast feeding loose their natural breast beauty. It may be true but Science has now proved that breast feeding is more important as it creates a permanent bond of love between mother and child, a natural love and builds the child stronger. Science has now that mothers who breast feed have less chance of cancer. Children grown up on mother’s milk care much for old parents.
The aspect I am confused is the best way for feeding. Reading different articles some say best natural link between a child and mother is if mother has her breast fully open, child is milking and his/her tiny hand is on the breast which creates a natural electric current affection to mother and child. Some suggest mother must be holding the breast rather than child.
Can any one suggest me any good book showing the photographic postures the mother should be sitting or lying on bed or on one side or how and in what position best to feed. I will welcome any such book which shows photos or any web site where i can read and see the photographs of best way of mother feeding.
Definately a good question!!! Are you expecting? Well, so glad you're considering bfing your baby ! One of the best sites for reference for me is the la leche league. Here is the page addressing what you're looking for, positioning La Leche League-Positioning. I tend to hold the baby in one arm, cradeling, and hold my breast with the other until he's latched on. Then I use that hand to caress him and stroke his hair, etc. I don't think it much makes a difference, though as long as he's getting that skin-to-skin contact. HTH
