When should I begin breastfeeding?

Best Beginning

Put your baby to the breast as soon as possible after the birth. For many mothers this is as soon as the baby is born! Babies are alert and receptive for the first hour or two after birth. This is a wonderful time to practice breastfeeding before they fall asleep.
