Online videos are a fantastic resource. While a book on breastfeeding can be helpful and a picture is worth a thousand words, watching someone breastfeeding, even on video, is a much better way to learn. Women do not generally see other women breastfeeding and this has resulted in the loss of knowledge that is gained by observing breastfeeding women on a day to day basis. These beautiful breastfeeding videos show proper latch, positioning of the baby, expressing breastmilk and much more. Enjoy.
